Agree. If you have a golden @ 14 you are a lucky person.

Goldens

None of my dogs, Bichons, Goldens, Samoyeds, have ever lived to 14.
I can't imagine ever giving my dog up!
I contacted the rescues right away, because I am so afraid they will be put to sleep at the shelter!!

Oh my goodness, how terribly terribly sad. Look at his poor expression. I was so so lucky to have my girl until she was 14 and four months and still miss her. SO relieved a rescue are collecting him, well done x

This makes my day! I saw Clyde's post this morning on Facebook as I was getting ready to leave for work, and a couple posts above his I saw this:




Seemed like a sign to me! I knew I wouldn't have time to contact any of the rescues until after work, thank you so much for contacting them!!

Have read through this thread & want to thank Jackson & Karen for love put into action. Wonderful news that this lovely old GR gentleman will be safe & shown love. I cried really hard when I read the poem above .....my husband kept saying "it's just a dog" I think he thought I was losing it! I get so emotional over things like this. Am going tp put this poem onto my FB page. My husband's nephew has two beautiful SiberianHuskies ....one of them a rescue who was going to be put to sleep due to a serious hip issue. He paid over $5000 for surgery for her, & although there are still on-going problems with her hip, Mark could not love her & her 'brother' more. He has never regretted rescuing her, even though the money spent on her surgery was money he had saved for a trip to Europe.

How sad They abandoned him long before dumping him at the shelter. Chained up in the back yard for 10 years. Oh, my God, what a pitiful life he's led. If I didn't have Andy with all his medical troubles I'd be in the car on my way to VA right now.

We adopted a couple 13-14 year old goldens who'd been in the same circumstances. It was so rewarding to see them blossom and learn what it's like to be loved and have fun.
