The world's oldest-known living cancer dates back 11,000 years, according to UK scientists.

It arose in a single dog and has survived in canines ever since, with the cancer cells passing between animals when they mate.

Thats interesting because we lost a medium sized dog through cancer, he was a Lurcher but we think he had Lab or Retriever in him.He was a great dog and sadly missed.
