I lost my buddy Joey, a Golden (pictured on the left with my other GR Harley on the right) on October 13th at the age of 7 yrs. I have had dogs all my life but Joey was the best ever and I miss him so much. Just before his 7th birthday Joey had a grand mal seizure, the first. It was horrifying. He was diagnosed with Cushings Disease with a pituitary brain tumor the likely cause. He was on maximum doses of seizure medicine and pain medicine but the seizures got out of control as the brain tumor grew. My buddy fetched his ball to me right to the last hour of the last day and I could not watch him suffer any more seizures. He died in my lap at the vet. My other golden, Harley will be 5 next month. He was heartbroken and hanging his head very depressed after Joey went to the vet and never came back. Harley and Joey did everything together. Even though I was not ready for one I brought home a yellow lab pup for Harley (and me) but was too scared at the time to get another golden. Harley likes the pup and plays and wrestles with her. She has been here a month. But he still seems like he is grieving and is not quite right. He has his playful moments but he seems depressed the rest of the time and quiet. He just had his yearly checkup and vaccinations yesterday and everything was fine. Do you think Harley could still be grieving almost 6 weeks later even with the new puppy in the house Puppy Lexi is in other attached pic.
