    Thanks everyone. Charlie is taking all his medication like a good boy and he had a good night and so did we! He is finding eating a bit awkward due to his swollen tongue so some of the food drops out of his mouth so we are soaking small portions of his kibble to help, so 4/5 small meals per day with a mashed up sardine to cheer him up :) He is pretty tired so has spent a large proportion of the day on the sofa sleeping but he does need to rest in order to heal. He is still sometimes coughing a bit after eating but that's only to be expected with a hole in the back of his throat. Otherwise he is doing well and so glad to be home :)

    I laughed to myself today thinking about when we picked him up last night how he did the rounds in the waiting room distributing kisses to customers and staff whether they wanted them or not :D:D x

    Thank you everyone.

    Charlie went to the vet for a checkup yesterday, the vet was thrilled at how well he is doing :) Charlie is pretty chuffed too and made sure he let her know with a face lick, the receptionist was not left out either :D She is quite worried about the possibility of the splinters causing an abscess so he is on another 2 weeks of medication. He has to go back in 2 weeks for another checkup and might well be prescribed more ABs etc.

    He is back out for walks and thoroughly enjoying being off lead, not phased at all :) x

    I should have named him LUCKY :rolleyes: x

    Just catching up with this now, I think this is the fastest I have ever read through a thread! What an awful ordeal you have all had!! So glad Charlie is on the mend. I'm sure you will all need time to recover from the stress of it all. Sending you hugs and well wishes and very gentle pats to dear Charlie.
