It's been almost a year since we lost our Beam. During her short (8.5 years) life she endured 2 different cancers. The battle with hemangiosarcoma was very draining emotionally . We still don't have a puppy. I'm afraid I will not be able to find enough inner strength if our new baby faces cancer.

The oncologist at Univ. of Wisc. VMTH told me that 80% of goldens will get some form of cancer. She told us their hospital sees a ton of Goldens. She said it's the result of a small gene pool in the American stock. Size is also related to cancer. Apparently, reducing the height of the dog by an inch would significantly reduce cancer rates, but the people need to agree to change the breed standard.
