I took some photos of Charlie this morning. I love how he uses his toys for pillows.:) He always wants to have a fleece baby blanket nearby, too. :luv:

Cathy, he is just beautiful. :luv: It's good that he can makehimself comfortable by proping his head up on his toys!

Thanks for the update. He looks good-- actually, he doesn't have the same pained look he had in some of his petfinder photos- (that could be my wishful thinking too).

Hey there little buddy! He looks so comfy curled up with his toys.

He's looking fabulous Cathy, doesn't have that same far away pained look...I'm so thrilled for you all.

I love that he rests on his toys - mine like to have their heads raised sometimes too.

He looks beautiful. Hope his recovery is going ok. He really does look much happier. Your doing a great job looking after him:)

I agree; his face has really softened. It's great to see him! :)

So others think they see it too.. Compare pictures from before to the one here/--- http://board.cavaliertalk.com/showthread.php?t=21470

It could be the difference between outside and inside--

There's definitely a difference in his face and eyes now!
More photos from today - look how round his eyes are, and his forehead above his eyes is now smooth:


Below is his incision; the top part of it you can barely see, but the bottom part is a bit scabby from when he scratched at it early Monday morning. I had to rush him to the neurologist and that's when he was put on Prednisone.

His eyes are showing he is in less pain. That is so good to see. Charlie is very blessed to have found a forever home with you Cathy Moon. :flwr:

It looks so good. His face definitely looks more relaxed now. Is he in less pain?

Oh wow! His face looks so much calmer....not nearly as "worried" as before. I love that pic of him and Colin....truly warmed my heart!!

Charlie looks great, so glad to hear he's doing well, he definately looks more relaxed and at ease, he is beautiful :flwr::hug::thmbsup:

Wow, I'm welling up here! There's a huge difference, he must be feeling a lot better already. Did they cut along his markings so it would look better when he healed?

19th November 2007, 10:42 AM
He looks much calmer..that pinched look is gone. Well Done to you, he is lucky to have you. He is a beautiful dog.

Today is the two week post surgical day for Charlie. I went to his blog and saw a picture of Charlie sitting like a normal dog -- wow. AMAZING and :xfngr: for a good neuro report.

I can see how easily he captured your heart. He is an angel...you are an angel.

Yay for Charlie. And especially an even bigger Yay for you. He looks happy and he clearly loves the guy in the photo. Tell Charlie that his friends in Miami are pulling for him and delighted to see him looking so well.

28th November 2007, 10:17 PM
Well done on looking after him so well Cathy. There is a definite look of relief in his eyes.
