We are so sorry to hear about this, you have our deepest sympathies.
Our black lab Kurt died in 2008 under very similar circumstances. We had Texas A&M analyze his food and they found Melamine in the food which killed this thyroid and brought on the cancer. Our other Lab/Golden mix Brandy survived only because she only was fed 2 cups of the food per day where Kurt was served 4 cups of the food per day. This was our thank you for feeding an advertised name brand premium dog food.
Brandy lost her thyroid and also came down with cancer. But we caught it as soon as it came about and she is now 15 years old and still with us.
Cancer in dogs is usually very aggressive. From the time it starts to the time it's too late is usually only a matter of a couple of days.
Most of the time there are no warning signs. We know you did the best you could possibly do. We will keep you and Casper in our prayers tonight....

Thank you so very much!
It really hurts, not having my little boy around anymore.
We had him as a puppy, from 3 months old, and apart from when I had to go into hospital for 10 days, we were never separated!
This is going to take some getting used to I can tell you!, however, you've been through the same, so there is nothing I can say that you do not already know.
Although I have no children of my own, I really feel that I have lost my baby!
Fitzpatirck Referrals kindly sent me a "With Sympathy" card with a black labrador on the front, and iin the card they refer to my little boy as "......my dear friend", this means so much to me and my wife, because Casper was never just a pet to us, he was so much more, and then some!
I know that readers of this lovely labrador loving forum, will understand where I am coming from.
Your the best, don't let anybody tell you otherwise!

Thank you for your kind words and prayers.
My wife and I are sincerely grateful.
I still find it hard to accept that our Casper is not with us anymore, I still keep talking to him though, I say goodnight to him every night when I go to bed, I miss Casper's help whenever I straighten the duvet on the bed, I loved it when it took me over 10 minutes to do a 10 second task!, I miss him lying on my foot every time I sit at the table to work on my computer; who am I kidding, we just miss him!
God bless you America! --Mike and Joy

I know it's still difficult, and you think you'll never get over it. We still miss our Kurt to this day even though we have four other dogs now. While they are all dogs, each one has its own independent personality and that's what makes them so special. Labs have aspecial way of attaching themselves to your heart.
But hang in there, you'll start feeling better little by little. It can sometimes take a few months. Have you visited the website www.petloss.com yet? It's for people who have just lost a pet and are coming to grips with it. You can even leave a memorial to Casper there. We visited it regularly after we lost our: Deco, Skippy, Vanessa, Data and Kelley. It really helped us a lot.

They are never with us long enough and it hurts so much to lose them, but, that is the price we pay for the love and joy that they bring into our lives.
You are in my thoughts, I too understand the loss and pain you are going through.
