Ah thank you for thinking of him! We have had a wonderful weekend together, just the two of us - nice and peaceful!

Yesterday he walked off lead for the first time since coming home and I don't mind admitting that I balled my eyes out. He was running and leaping around in the long grass and I just followed him and cried. Pathetic I know! Just feel really emotional about him at the moment. Just as well that I was wearing sun glasses, people must have thought I was a lunatic. :D

I spent a lot of yesterday de-matting him. OMG it took a long time! I gave him lots of breaks in between and a LOT of treats. Today, he had a bath and his first proper haircut. I used the clippers on his body and scissor cut his head, face and legs. He obviously still has the bald patches but there's nothing I can do about those. They don't look too bad and from certain angles you don't notice them ;). I haven't uploaded the new pics from my camera yet but will do and will post them tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning we are back at the Royal Veterinary College Hospital for a check up. Hard to believe he was so poorly just two weeks ago.
