I missed this thread but know what you went through all too well. Macintosh had the same thing and we too thought it was a fungal infection but meds didn't clear it up. So back to vet and found out it was cancer (squamous cell carcinoma). We saw it in november and by april we too had to let our golden go. Only difference is we didn't get the daily bleeds like most do unless he hit something and that was really hard to hear him yelp in pain as he never yelped so I knew it hurt. It's tough and I am sorry for your loss. In my link I have pics of him even with his nose all messed up too.

hey macretriever, i just saw this reply.

i'm so sorry about your lost for mac. i saw the picture and the one with him in the collar with a ball in his mouth... i cried because it reminded me of gino. because it reminded me that even though he was in pain, he acted like nothing is going on and that he is happy because he wanted us to be happy and didn't wanted us to feel sad or unhappy. what more can us humans ask for from someone so loyal to us? they give us everything even till the end the remain strong practically for the people who love them becuase they don't want to us getting upset.

i think both gino and mac and all the other dogs know when their time is up... i remembered the last day was so horrible. that memory is still vivid in my head and i don't think i will ever forget that because it is the worst day of my life. that day took away my greatest gift. gino didn't wanted to leave us as well he was so sad that that day had to come. i can feel it because he is our dog and i grew up with him.

do you guys have other dogs now? i feel so empty and loss without him. i still have another poodle who i'm not very close too though. sometimes i just sit down and cry for no reason. the pain is beyond description and i don't think anyone would understand till they experience the loss of their beloved dog. horrible is an understatement. i dread the days that past without him. i swear. i still hope someday he just appears in my house... i still have that silly hope. i don't wanner believe that he is gonee. if not he would really be. and i fear that a lot. i miss my gino.

my 21st burfday is on 10th dec. it would be my first burfday in a long time without him. my wish is for gino to be happy and to be free of pain.

hey nash. thanks for your words of encouragement. my parents owes a grooming boutique and gino practcally follows us to the shop every single day. we did a 'memorial' for him in the shop as well and put up flowers and an album which shows pictures of his life as a puppy and how he grew with us altogether as a family... however, my dad recently put that book away because it was just too painful having to face and see it everyday. looking at that empty quiet spot- just something so difficult to accomodate for the time being. and i think it would take a very long time. however, my family and i are healing slowly... we don't burst out for no reason that much as what we did 4 months ago. but things are still very sad and the wound is still very raw.

his name is too sentimental. the dog tag i made for him, i wear it as a necklace... it's like he's so near yet so far. i really miss him so much. i miss my gino. thank you for your kind words once again.

i'm so sorry about your loss for nitro as well. i know how you feel trust me. that feeling... it's beyond description. dogs have a way of filling that empty space in our heart we never know we had... i guess thats why they are so special and they always stay with us- even till the end.

Yes it's amazing how loyal and strong these dogs can be no matter what they just want to please us. The last couple of weeks Mac had to sleep in the hall outside our bedroom so my wife could sleep as his breathing was so loud she could not sleep. Every morning when she got up she opened the door and he would race in and lay down next to me on the floor. He never let it bother him as he knew it wasn't because he was in trouble so he had a bed in the hall a few hrs as I usually went to bed around 1130 and wife up at 430 for work.

Mac really let me know the pain was getting to be more than he wanted to deal with. On sat night I went out back to watch tv like I do every night with the dogs while baby and mom sleep, but to my surprise Macintosh is sitting on the couch waiting for me not Dakota or Evan their pup. I sat down he put his had on my leg and just laid there for 3 hrs never moving which was not like him because he loved to lay on the concrete away from the other 2 dogs not bothering anyone. The other 2 dogs never tried to get close they knew something was up. Then sunday morning we go down I let them out they come in and Mac's face is so swollen up from his lymphnodes being plugged his face was not draining like it should. I fed them as usual I had been grinding his food up and mixing it with milk and his meds for a while so he would eat. I gave him a piece of bacon and he could not feel to pick it up so I broke it up and hand fed him. I knew that if he could not eat that piece of bacon that he so loved that he was not doing well. So that day we went down to my parents so he could play with his boxer friend lady and he never went anywhere without me he was glued to me all day and freaked out when I moved the tractor because he thought I was going to leave him there or something. Then monday called the local vet and he out of the office till wednesday so knew I was going to have to drive him 30 min away to be at peace so we went to the lake by our house and spent a few hrs playing then came home to dry off and get ready. He went to his bed upstairs and never moved till it was time to go. He gave his all for one last play time with dad. He was always my dog as I had him before I met my wife. He was also the protector of the family. Part of me regrets not going back with him when he went to rest, but I could not see that he gave me his goodbye by sitting down and leaning his had back and giving me a kiss as he rarely did because he was not a licker, then calmly walked with the vet into the back..We brought him home and a good friend came up with his backhoe and we buried Mac in the front yard. I have not made a head stone yet but I will. My wife cut a piece of his tail to keep like they do with horses so we are going to do a shadow box with his last collar tags and his hair to always have a piece of him with us.

Yes we have 2 goldens still. My wife knew I wanted to breed mac and keep a puppy so we actually found a female that needed a home. I also got mac the same way as a family was not ready for a high energy dog and kept in touch with them till the end. They had 2 litters of pups we kept a pup from the second litter and his name is Evan. He reminds me of his dad in some ways, but he is a big chicken and I can only hope he becomes the protector like his dad. Not mean but not afraid of everything that moves. No matter how many dogs/animals you have nothing can take the place of your heart dog, and it hurts. I believe the only thing that kept me going was I stay home and take care of the baby she was only 8 months at the time. I just wish his nose would of been better so he could of played with the baby some as he loved kids but just couldn't risk the chance of her grabbing his nose so he stayed away.

I believe you are lucky to of had the chance to spend 15 years with him. I had mac for 8 years of his 9.5. I was really hoping for him to make it to 10 years but he just couldn't do it. I know I just wrote a lot on here and my face is all red and shirt wet from tears. It does get easier but our love for them never changes.

Kimberly, I am so sorry you lost your beloved. I hope you have healed some and continuing to heal from your loss.

I haven't been on this forum for awhile so am sorry not to have been here during your most distressful time. You seem to be a very caring and loving young lady and you have much love to give. If you haven't already, please consider getting another canine kid because I know it will be loved and cared for, and it will help you get through the hard times.

My oldest Golden has nasal cancer as well and I'm trying natural things to help her out. So far it's working rather well.

Also, a very belated happy 21st birthday to you!!

thanks everyone the kind words and condolences. the worst was is over, i hope. things are back to what it used to be in a way life goes on. the pain gets better and lighter as the times goes but it's never forgotten. each day i think of him and i wonder how is he at the rainbow bridge. sometimes... i see yellow butterflies and it makes me think of him of him he is golden and how the colour relates to one another. likes to think that whenever we see a butterfly nearby, it's a loved one who has come down for heaven to say hello. to stop by once in awhile because they miss us. & maybe when we walk, an invisible shape follows us closely behind. i believe in all that it makes me feel better...

it's coming to about 10 months soon since gino's passing and i miss him very much. i still tear when i think of him and try not to look or rather... stare at his pictures for so long because i tend to just smile when i glance at his face but i will tear and think of all the memories we had when i watch the videos or pictures i have of him. the house feels so empty now. i still have another poodle, but it's different.

this forum has really helped me a lot. from the beginning when i started to seek help about his nose and till i put him down. people here are so helpful and i guess a couple of people has been through what i am having now. what i havent done is to get a new dog. i would prolly adopt and idk... i just feel it's all still too early for me. i just want my gino back and how things used to be like before. i miss his silly face, his smellly breath, his paws, everything. i miss his smell and i miss his fur all over me.

terry: i really hope your oldest golden will be very strong. gino lasted 6 months without medication. he could stay longer but i was convinced that he wasn't having quality life anymore so with the aid of this forum i choose to let go. i hope you will when the time is right. all i regret was me not putting him down sooner. a day earlier rather than a minute too late. spend quality time with him and he's gonna miss you just as much too.

now when i see goldens i can't help but to smile at them and look away because i once had this love from my very own gino but i no longer do anymore. i wish there were visiting hours in heaven.

thanks for the burfday wish thank you. and pls take care. i used violet leaf on gino and it did help soothe the pain and all. it's herbs and i brewed it myself. i got it from Juliette de Barcalli Levy (Natural Handbook for Dogs and Cats) you might want to read it she's the world renown herbalist.
