Thought it might be fun to see how old some of our Goldens are!

I'll start, Mandy is about 11.5

I know there are some older ones here! Please let us know how old your's are. There will be 'cheers' for the oldest!!!

Are we counting rainbow bridge dogs? Mine was 16+... Sweet thing! And she was pretty robust up until the last month or two...

Brutus will be 13 this Friday. And my brother and sis each have a sibling of his that is still going strong also!

Their mother Stormy was 16 when we lost her.

Congrat's on your long lived Goldens. Sam lived to be 12 years 5 months and 7 days...yeah, I counted. I'm told Sam's mother is still alive. She's 16. I'm praying for Ike to be the longest lived Golden in Breed History....he's 20 months into it.:)

My mother's neighbor just put down her 17 year old Golden this week. I invited her to the board, not sure if she has showed up.

Opus was 14 years and 9 months .... I think it will take that long to get over not having her around.

Maxine will be 12 on 12/26. She is still behaving like a puppy. Ok maybe she has slowed a little, but really not much. She keeps up with my younger dogs.

I have told her it is her job to live to be the oldest golden retriever ever. I think there was one that made it to 18 1/2. So I told her 8 more years, no problem. I honestly don't know how I will make it with out her, she is the air I breathe.

Maxine this past April.
