Hello everyone,

I've just found this forum whilst searching the internet for some information on Splenectomies. It is great to find a place where I can talk to fellow goldie owners, I didn't know such places existed.

My Husband and I are owned by two goldens, Barney who's our first born golden and is now 11 1/2 years old. Also Pennymon, we rescued her ten years ago. We were told she was 1 to 1 1/2 years old when we rehomed her, but she could be slightly older. I couldn't imagine life without goldens, these are our first dogs but I grew up with a goldie called Toby.

I'm hope someone can help me (I'm probably posting in the wrong section, so I'll go and search a section to post my questions in, in a moment) Sadly, Penny has just had to have a spenectomy so I have some questions regards that procedure, I really hope someone can help answer our questions, thanks for any help you can offer.

Meanwhile, hello to everyone, please all give your dogies a huge kiss and cuddle from myself and Barney and Penny XX

Hello and welcome Penny and Barney's mum!

I don't know anything about the health issues your Penny has but hope she is comfortable and can make progress.

I too am in the UK, Leicestershire, and we have Hector Too who is coming up 20 months. I grew up with 2 goldens, Katie and Hector One!

If you click on community you'll find a UK social group. Just to warn you though, we like a chat:wave:

Whereabouts in Yorkshire are you? My Dad's family are from the Cottingham area near Hull and Mum's family are from Conisborough near Donacaster. Still got rellies there now. Our first golden Katie was a yorkshire lass. She came from the Linchael kennels that at that time were in Skipton I think. That was way back in '77!
