Thanks everyone. Cooper is recovering from surgery well - and back to "normal." He's home and acting normal (aside from moving a little slow because of the stitches). We've been told 3-4 months at best. His regular vet has him on some antioxidants for his liver - she said it's what she would do for her own dog. She called my parents practically in tears when she got the information from the ER (they fax his information over automatically). She said no chemo for him. He'll be 12 a week from Friday. We're just trying to enjoy as much time with him as possible. He should get his stitches out sometime next week.

We went home to visit him last week - and brought Shadow of course. They laid around together.

Two pictures - one is Cooper coming home from his stay in the hospital. The second is Shadow and Cooper.

What a handsome boy Cooper is. I hope that he can beat the odds that he was given and have many, many months with your family.

That's a great picture of Cooper and Shadow.

wishing Cooper an early Happy Birthday.

So glad that Cooper is home and praying he and your parents have many good times together. Take lots of pictures of him and feed him whatever he wants to eat!!

I'm so very sorry about the diagnosis. On the chance that you missed it, this thread about a very senior dog with hemangiosarcoma is one of best loved on the Forum: http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...look-good.html (oh Toby, this doesn't look good). It has a lot of practical advice about how to help your dog, not to mention being a powerful story about love and devotion.

With prayers that you and Cooper have a lot more than 3-4 months to enjoy each other,
Lucy
