How old is the oldest Golden on here?

Thought it might be fun to see how old some of our Goldens are!

I'll start, Mandy is about 11.5

I know there are some older ones here! Please let us know how old your's are. There will be 'cheers' for the oldest!!!

Tom ~ I used to think that German Shepherd Dogs were the best, but that was before I met a Golden!

Are we counting rainbow bridge dogs? Mine was 16+... Sweet thing! And she was pretty robust up until the last month or two...

Brutus will be 13 this Friday. And my brother and sis each have a sibling of his that is still going strong also!

Their mother Stormy was 16 when we lost her.

Congrat's on your long lived Goldens. Sam lived to be 12 years 5 months and 7 days...yeah, I counted. I'm told Sam's mother is still alive. She's 16. I'm praying for Ike to be the longest lived Golden in Breed History....he's 20 months into it.

My mother's neighbor just put down her 17 year old Golden this week. I invited her to the board, not sure if she has showed up.
