So sorry to hear.... :(

My best friend is 13 as well, hes still pretty active, but I know its coming.....

Old labs and goldens should have abdominal x-ray once a year and blood work-up.  They typically get tumors on spleen or liver.  Lucy had her spleen removed with a benign tumor and lived another 6 months. She was like a young dog again until the liver cancer ultimately got her.

Another key thing to watch for is a front leg limp.  This is usually not the leg, but the guts.

My sincere condolences, Steve.  Lucy had it good with you and your family.  Please come back and show us your new family member when you are ready.

Our dogs bring us such joy, and it's hard when we lose them.  But all of life is transitory, so we keep our memories and move on.

I love your measurement quotation.  It's unbelievable how this becomes religion, even tribal.

At the same time, 1/3 of the US population refuses to agree with the climate scientists worldwide. :scratch:

    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

Dogs are incredible, his personality was made to please and understand the human being and be their helper, below a good news, dogs of a homeless man awaiting longing at the hospital door for their owner to be treated.
