We're finally having to put down our 10-year-old golden retriever. She's dying of cancer, and is lethargic and anorexic because of the tumours. Please pray for all of us; she's lived with my parents all her life, and she was a big part of my brother's life and mine, since we adopted her when we were children. It's a sad day for our family--and it's my father's birthday as well. He's taking it the hardest.

Lord have mercy.

I certainly sympathize since my "baby" (Daschund) is sitting in my arms as I type this.

So sorry for your family's loss.

How sad...golden retrievers are such sweet natured things, I'm sure you have years of great memories of her.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
 
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

It's so hard to lose a beloved animal. They really can be part of the family.   Cry My sympathies to you and all your family.
