Unhappy Has been a long time since....

Hello All!

Have been away from the Forum for almost 8 months--sorry about that. Have been dealing with cancer issues--both human and canine.

I wanted to let everyone know that we lost another member of our four-footed family to cancer--Scout, age 10.5, passed from liver cancer on October 19, 2016. She passed very peacefully at home in the company of her two dads. We miss her terribly. We now only have Hoover, our 3 year old to keep us company.

I noted that it was ironic--and sad--that all of the Goldens on my avatar are now gone. David and I considered them to be the "Big Three"--the first Goldens we had, living from 2000 until last week. Atticus, our heart dog, passed in August, 2012, Jordie in August 2015 and Scout in October 2016.

Hug your kids 'extra special' for us tonight. I've been trying to post photos using the drag and drop--but have been unsuccessful so far. Will keep trying.... Peace.

Scott J.

I am so sorry for your loss of Scout. Cancer in our goldens is so cruel. You said you were dealing with human cancer also. My thoughts are with you as you grieve. Also positive thoughts for fighting human cancer!! RIP sweet Scout.

So sorry to hear about Scout. It is so hard losing them but a relief that they are no longer suffering. Hope the battle against human cancer is more positive and your happy memories help you through the coming months.. Sending good thoughts.

I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your Scout. I looked back at some threads and there is a wonderful memory of when she joined your family. She was very lucky to be with you and your pack. I hope it's some comfort that she was able to pass peacefully with both of you, her dads, there. Thinking of you and your family.
