I lost my Golden a few days ago. She was 12 and a great girl. Such a hard selfless decision I had to make. She was diagnosed with cancer, and because the location and her age we decided not to treat it. Just keep her happy knowing one day we would have to make a hard decision. She started to suffer and that was something we did not want. She was loosing all of her bodily functions lost a lot of weight and was just not the same dog. My lab seems lost, or maybe its me. So sad, The house seems so empty with out her all she wanted to do was be with you and be pet. To her last moments she wanted to just be pet by me with her tail wagging. I'm gonna miss you Madison.
