8 Goldens lost to cancer? Wow, I couldn't take it. We lost our last one at 2 years old. She cleaned up at an obedience trial, and two days later, she wouldn't lift her head off the floor. We tried chemo, but it didn't help any. Here is my newest one...which I think was 2 years ago now. Still miss my other one...
So cute. Be prepared. Some/most of them act like pups until they are over ten years of age.
