Kota never to be replaced or forgotten, but your new pup will start another mountain of unconditional love and laughs, and great times.

Late on condolences but they are sincere nonetheless and we are glad you decided to secure another family member. We too lost a love unexpectedly at seven while we were all in Nova Scotia. Four hours and gone. I started doing tons or research on Cancer and Auto-Immune diseases in dogs. It's staggering and it is my believe the increase is related to the food we all feed our pets as well as what we put on our lawns. Most food companies have been taken over by conglomerates and production cost per bag is key to their survival. I've found a totally natural food, with probiotics, vitamins added etc which we now feed our two Labs and they seem to thrive on it.

Check out dog ratings on the internet, one of the things we looked for first was recalls-if the food had ever been recalled we crossed it off the list and almost all the "good" foods, well know foods have been recalled. There are a few which have never been recalled. I will not publish here, but anyone can PM me for what information we have gathered and what we are using if you like.

Puppy Mills are actually growing in the US and the Amish clans are some of the worst offenders. Especially those in PA and OH. If not rescuing a dog (My wife and I helped start a rescue and volunteer there now) they buy from a breeder. If the breeder refuses to let you visit their facility, refuses to let you see Mom and Dad, refuses to give you a tour - walk away.

Enjoy Mishka, Goldens are a special breed and she is a lucky girl to have "parents" like yourselves.

So sorry! We have a choc lab that travels with us and he is such a great companion. They are like family and the unconditional love of a dog is a great comfort.

Find another one and start new journeys!

A quick update: Mishka is growing quickly! He's had a busy 12 weeks with us starting with his trip home to Michigan.

He's socializing well with other dogs and people. Typical puppy challenges so he fits right in.

In a few weeks we will head out in the AS for the Pennwood get together.

From one Dave to another, I share your love for the breed, and My two Goldens share my empathy for your loss. Walter is currently nine, and Waylon is five. The are both from the same breed in downstate Illinois, who I would recommend to anyone.

BTW - On this dive Walter would have gotten a perfect 10, but the Russian judge gave him a six.

The first part of this thread made me cry.

And now I'm laughing (love the together in bed photo).

Please give Mishka a hug for the vicarious joy!

I believe it true that the best way to fill the void left by such a loss is with more Love, which heals most things. We just need to be reminded, as we forget in our grief, of the wonder of what we had and that we have but to seek to find it again.

Late to see the thread, jealous of what you have found in that beautiful new puppy. Better to live and lose then never have loved at all.. for both parties, so many pets out there in need of a family.
Best wishes friend
Brian
