    We're keeping Dougal in our thoughts and prayers. As others have said, it was a complete accident, it can happen so easily. Thank goodness he vomited it up quickly.

    I am sorry Dougal is ill, I hope he feels better soon. Sometimes these things happen, unfortunately it seems that a lot of the Cavaliers are greedy little monsters. Sending you are best wishes.

    I am so sorry Dougal is I'll but the others are right, if he vomited so much up that's a good thing. Fingers crossed he is home to you today with his tail wagging. Penny was away from us last week for 2 nights, she was perfectly fine and it was us that stressed for her mostly because we can't be there with them when they are sick hoping to hear good news soon...my thiugts are with you all xx

    What a worry for you. Accidents happen and like others have said the fact that he's vomitted so much is a good thing

    Trouble is he wont learn his lesson will he?
    Leo ate tinsel one xmas and I couldnt work out what it was he had eaten until I siften through what he's brought up

    Praying Dougal will be ok and sending hugs and best wishes to you

    Thanks for the messages everyone. Rang the vet there and he not only survived the night, but is in good form and the nurse had him out for a walk.

    What a night! Had to camp on the sofa with dora because she wouldn't settle anywhere but the front room for some reason.

    He's an incredible dog. He had at LEAST 500g of dark cooking chocolate. The absolute worst, and in a large quantity. His saving grace is that he's fairly quick to vomit if he eats too much rich food, thank goodness.
    Looking forward to picking him up and having a nap.

    Had to laugh at this... learn his lesson??! Not a chance. In between getting sick he was licking the chocolate off his paws and doras mouth (she got some on her mouth when trying to investigate his vomit) Plus when we took the bag of chocolate out of the bin to check the percentage of cocoa he got real excited

    Glad Leo survived his tinsel episode

    So is the chocoholic himself coming home?.
    500g is a serious amount of chocolate,Maybe it was just as well he ate so much of it that it actually made him sick.....had he eaten a lesser amount and kept it down you may never have even known...
