Last week we lost our beloved Golden Hal to hemangiosarcoma at 12 1/2. Our family is devastated, particularly my seven year old daughter. We treid four rounds of chemo which may have prolonged his life briefly but he only survived four months post surgery before suffering a terrible seizure. The reality is hemangiosarcoma is a nasty, aggressive disease that is taking too many of our Goldens.

I am very, very sorry that you lost Hal. It's so sad that our innocent, loving doggies have to suffer such a hideous disease. We lost our Simon to hemangio so I know how hard it is. Run free, sweet Hal. Please post pics of him when you can.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Hal to this cruel and unforgiving disease. We've lost two goldens to it, one at 13 1/2 years and the other one month shy of his 13th birthday. The intense heartache that comes with loving and caring for a dog with hemangio is emotionally painful. I hope you will share photos and memories of Hal when you can.

I'm SO very sorry for your loss of your beloved Hal. I understand how devastating it is to loose one to this tragic disease. We lost our 11 year old Di on 5/21/11 to hemangiosarcoma (spleen). It happened very suddenly. During the 2 weeks around the time we lost her there were about 6 GRF members that lost theirs to hemangiosarcoma as well. I hope that in time all of the beautiful memories of Hal will bring comfort to your aching heart.

I am so very sorry for your loss of Hal. Cancer of all kinds takes too many of our goldens. We lost Sophie to hemangio and Selka to osteosarcoma.

So sorry for your loss. We lost Maddie 8 weeks ago this coming Saturday to Hemangio so I can relate to your frustration of this horrible disease.

So sorry for your lost. There are many of us here who have lost their golden babies to Hemangio. I lost two in a 6 weeks span of that nasty disease.

You came to a great group for support.
