    Not on me. On marley:

    Poor thing. We adopted him two years ago, almost exactly, from GRREAT: Golden Retriever Rescue, Education And Training. He's almost 9 and we are his third, and definetly final, home.

    The vet told us "It is definetly not anything but cancer."

    It was on his front-left leg and was removed today. He's still at the vet, recuperating. Apparently he's quite groggy from drugs.

    We won't know what type of cancer it is for another week to 10 days. The good news is that it was all contained in the skin; none was attached to the bone.

    There is now nothing we can do except wait for the cancer to show up somewhere else.

    Damn. I love him too much to be ready to let him go.

    :(

    Oh, I am so very sorry. I lost a beloved golden/lab mix to cancer. I hope Marley recovers well and has many healthy years left!

    Poor doggie - hopefully he'll stay fine now!

    Our Lab is still very young, but I'm doubly not looking forward to this - my (now) 1yo will probably have a terrible time with it in 8-10 years (not to mention me and my wife).

    I am so sorry to hear that, Danny! So sorry!
    I hope it will have stayed in that spot only and not spread ... yes, I hope for that very much.

    That is such a sweet picture! He is lucky to have such a caring family at last. I'm sure he will be happy to get home. :heart: I hope the recovery is quick and no cancer shows up anywhere else.

    Wow Danny. Im sooo sorry to hear about your pooch. I hope he will be fine. My thoughts are with you and Marley. My dog is my best friend, and I know how you feel being so close to him.
    All the best my friend.

    I'm so sorry :(
    I know what it's like to get that kind of news, and it will never be easy. I really hope that is the only place it shows up, and I'm praying for you...
