I agree, this is a really good pedigree and lots of very long lived dogs. Try and relax and enjoy the current pup... no one can predict the future for any of us, man nor beast :-) So make your decision based on the dog you currently have and all the literature suggest waiting until goldens are closer to 2. Getting cancer at 12 is sadly just part of life with goldens (or any dog really), if it wasn't cancer it might be something else. If you are fortunate to have a senior in double digits it's a treasure and this bloodline has quite a few. FWIW panic is never a good foundation to base any decision on :-)
