Sticks on the brain!
A dog has survived after spending a month with a huge splinter stuck millimetres from his brain.
Flint stumbled to fetch the stick thrown by his owner, Nicky Killeen.
She had no idea a three-inch splinter had pierced her pet’s face until his eye swelled to the size of a golf ball.
Vets gave Flint an MRI scan – and were shocked to see the dagger-shaped piece of wood lodged behind his left eye.
They had to remove his cheekbone to get it out costing 3,600, reports The Sun.
Nicky, 41, of Wrabness, Essex, said: “He’s 100 per cent OK again – and still chasing sticks.”
