YES, he's a lucky boy to be back before the fireworks begin again tonight - apparently that's what spooked him initially.
"Blacky is with me as Josephine is away today, she will be collecting him this evening. He's ok, very tired, on the thin side and very foot sore with a few cuts on his leg and shoulder but he's had a small meal, is now asleep on one of my dog's beds and is going to the vets later this afternoon. Thank you to everyone who helped searched for him and to all who followed his story. Welcome back Blacky, maybe we can all have a good night's sleep now."
