Man, sorry about your dog. I say that was a good choice on your part, it could have been a miserable life for your dog if you had not tried to remove the fluid. Pericardial tamponade would have eventually gotten him/ her anyway.

Some of the most sad times I have had have been when my dogs have died. I don't own any today because it's so painful.

Sorry for your loss.

Thanks man. That's exactly what she had, along with some kind of cancer that was common in Goldens (but still in the early stages). Just a few days earlier, she was her normal happy, life is good, self. She was a great dog. My other dog passed away last year, but she lived to be 13-1/2 years. Alpha only made it to 9 years old.

I'm still gonna get another, only because my daughter misses Alpha so much.

I talked to "someone in the know" who I won't identify that said the who thing was a complete clusterfVck. Very poorly planned and executed, which I can actually understand having been there myself. I can remember being point man with my k9 on raids that were thought up at the last minute with no recon and everything screwed up, but went through because the chief of sheriff got wind of it and sent guys into bad situations. One of which got a guy shot to . Now that I think about it, it's stuff like that that helped me decide to quit. Events were executed that were lierally pulled out of someones . But I digress. It was poorly planned and I'm just glad my dude was ok and no one else in the area was un-cared for by this -poor situation. Cy-fair vfd guys in the trenches get my respect!!! and thank you to Tom and Swift for great info.
So Sorry to hear about Alpha Rob. When I lost my shepherd this January I was wrecked, and later the Golden retriever rescue group convinced me to foster one. I was fostering this little guy pictured and didn't really want to do it, but that little voice in my head said "stop being selfish, this is about him not you" so I took him anyway. I've never had a golden before, but they really are awesome. Good luck helping out another, I know grrh.org is always looking for help.

Sorry to hear about your Shepard, tz. yeah, it sucks when they go.

Thanks for the link for the Goldens shelter. I would have never thought that people would want to give up their Goldens! Talk about the most kid-friendly family dog there is, it's a Golden!! I'm definitely gonna look into it. The funny thing is, the dog I have always wanted is a German Shepard, and I was looking into purchasing one. However, I wasn't too sure about doing so now, since my daughter's still just over 2 yrs old, and the one major constant she knew whenever I picked her up, and took her home (I'm divorced), was looking forward to seeing Alpha. In fact, I think "Alpha" was the first word she knew. She still looks around for Alpha whenever she's here. I didn't want to raise another dog at this point, so maybe adopting an older Golden could be the best idea yet! Then when my daughter gets a few years older, I can get a Shepard to raise.

Thanks, bro!
