Charlie's x rays were not good he showed us what a spine should look like and Charlie's looked nothing like that is sort of crumbling and were the gaps should be inbetween the spine its closed up and has like a dome on the bottom she only has 3 that are not like that but they are heading that way as well.
He also said her hips were not good or her back legs but he was more worried about her back.

He had that look on his face i was worried what he was going to say he said its a wonder Charlie is walking :( but i said she is and she still plays with poor old Daisy and drags her to the ground.

Her blood pressure is still a bit high so she is now on 2 lots of tablets for her heart and blood and still on high dose of metacam and back to the vets next Friday.
But she has that Charlie grin back and she is wagging her tail again :D

Please keep good thoughts for my Charlie girl i just love that naughty Charlie girl :D

My prayers are with you too. Hopefully her medictions will help her not be in pain. She is so pretty and I hope the tail keeps wagging and the smile stays plastered on her wonderful face.

Sending healing thoughts to Naughty Charlie. I hope to hear about her naughty exploits for years to come.

I still laugh when I think about you all going to some event and they kept calling for the owners of the golden to come and collect her from the food table. :)

Maggie, you and Ray are the best parents always doing special things with your pups.
I think that is why Charlie Girl has energy to drag Daisy around.
I will keep your sweet Charlie in my prayers.
HUGS to all of you! June

I"m sorry to hear that. Many good wishes and healing thoughts for Charlie. Is acupuncture an option for you? It has done wonders for my Toby.

Charlie was having acupunture but the vet that was doing let so trying to find another vet to do that.

But she is still howling for her dinner so i know she is ok Charlie loves food and the day she stops howling for food is the day i will really worry.
But because of her back she is on a diet :(

I'm so sorry the news about the x-rays is not good. Pain management is so important to quality of life, whether for humans or dogs. I hope she responds well and without further complications.

Holding your Naughty Charlie in my thoughts and prayers,
Lucy

I'm sorry to hear about the x-rays. I'm sending prayers and good thoughts for Naughty Charlie (and you).

Apart from the way she walks when she is out you would never know she had such a bad back.
But i am sure upping the dose of metacam is helping her and her heart and blood pressure tablets and joint tablets.

As she is so naughty indoors this morning she barked to go out then barked to come in and now she is barking to go out again she wants Daisy to go out in the garden with her but Daisy does not want to go as she knows Charlie will want to play fight with her.
If i win the lottery i am going to hire a doorman for Charlie.

That is too cute!
Charlie is such a helpful girl. It might have been something tasty that the little boy was looking at for sure.

For someone like me, new to this forum, those little things you guys just mentioned resolve the puzzle why is Charlie known as Naughty Charlie.
Sending healing thoughts and prayers for your sweet girl.
