Thanks again to everyone for the thoughts.

Biopsy is back - it is indeed hemangiosarcoma. They told us 3-4 months before he has another episode, at which point that will probably be the end. I'm so not ready for this. I can't imagine a world without Cooper. I've been through this three times before with my parents' dogs, but Cooper is truly exceptional. Just the best dog. I'm devastated.

My heart breaks for you and Cooper. I lost my beloved Buster to this hideous disease. He was my best friend for 8 years, 6 of which during retirement when he was by my side 24/7. Words can not describe the loss.

I am just reading about uncle Cooper, hope he is doing better after his surgery and stays with your parents for very, very long time.

So sorry to hear about Cooper. We went through this with our beloved Brinkley earlier this year. This website is and it's members helped me through it. Everyone is so caring! I'm finally ready to start getting back on here because it is so hard to relive the memories. But we are all a family to look after one another. We knew that the only way to help us with the empty feeling was to get another dog. I wanted another golden, but my wife was skeptical with all the health issues of these poor guys. We decided one day we would get another golden but for the time being we had to decide on another breed. I had to have a big, retrieving dog so we got Charlie the golden doodle. I read a lot of horrible opinions of these dogs on here but it didn't sway our opinion. He was born just a couple weeks after Brinkley passed. I will post pics in another thread though. I just want to thank everyone who had such kind words to say and how many members checked on how he was doing!

Very sorry to read that your Cooper does have Hemangiosarcoma. There are goldenkids that have beat the odds and lived longer. Sending thoughts that you all have longer with sweet Cooper.
