I'm so sorry for your loss of Chance. As already shared by many, we all go through this sad sad time when owning a Golden or any other pet for that matter. One poster once said, "They never live as long as we would like them to." Such a true statement.

We too have been through this, sadly more than once, but only one time with a GR. River died from cancer last Dec. For the first few days, it was hard for me to take a breath. I don't know when is ever the right time to begin looking forward, but for us, the best remedy to getting over our grief was the fresh scent of puppy breath. Once I had puppies licking my hands and face and that fresh scent caught my attention, I knew it was time to get another dog.

Brody is now 9 months old. Oh, what joy he has given us already. We will never forget River. His memory will stay with us forever. Brody gave us the opportunity to love again and be loved. IMHO, I can't think of better medicine for the grief created after losing a loving dog but everyone has to learn when it's the right time for them. God Bless!

Roger

River, RIP Ole Boy, 5/04/08 -12/15/18

Thank you and yes - for me puppy breath was the antidote to the incredible sadness over the loss of my beautiful gentle Chance.

..... have a Golden day
