I'm am so sorry. You have my deepest sympathy. Post some pictures. : )

My goldens have lived to be 12, 14, 12 and current goldens are 9 and 5. My nine year old's dad is still healthy at 16!

One died of a stroke(12) a ruprtured tumor(14) and megaesophogus(12)

There are many people here with goldens that have lived to a ripe old age.

My boyfriends first golden died at 8 to cancer, but I think that is young for a golden.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. This is the first time in my life I have been owned by Goldens. My Cocker Spaniel lived to be 17 and my childhood dog lived to be 16. I dread the day I may have to say Good-bye.

Lucky is my first Golden and only 2 1/2, so no experience yet ....but my dad's Shepard/collie mix was the size of a Golden and he lived to 12...or maybe 13.

I had a smaller but obese lab mix that lived to 12. If we had kept him in shape he would have lived longer.

Very sorry for your loss. They never live long enough though. I had a lab pass at 15 1/2 and that was too soon.

Katya (my first golden) 14 years
Amber just shy of 4 years (hit by a garbage truck on home property)
Kachina 6 months wandered away was hit while I was looking for her.
Kayla 11 years she had been diagnosed with kidney failure, but before her kidneys could do her in she had a major stroke or heart attack. It happened fast.
Maxine - still going currently 11 I have told her she has to be the oldest golden ever which I think was 18 1/2 years. No pressure but 8 more years minimum.
Teddi currently 18 months.

My angel Cody lived to be 14 years, 3 months and 4 days. His 17th birthday was day before yesterday; how I miss that boy! His brother Toby lived to be almost 16 1/2, going to the Bridge last August. Their half-brother Sage lived to be almost 13; he died of fibrosarcoma.
