today we are sad

Quincy's battle with a diabetic condition is done. Letting him go was the hardest decision for us but our bottom line is his quality of life.  He's weathered so many things and keeps on fighting.  This morning was different, he looked frail and tired.  Yet he was still trying to make us feel good.  I guess it is true, loving something so much, so times you have to set them free.

Tomorrow will be a new day.

So sorry about your Quincy Debbie.
It's a hard decision but you are right about letting him go. He suffers no more.

So sorry. We also had the agonizing decision of exactly when to let our beloved dog go. Over a year ago now. He's still so sadly missed. Quincy has no suffering now. Best wishes.

Debbie and Laurie, I am so sorry to hear that you had to let Quincy go. I know how hard you tried to give him the best quality of life with his condition. He is now frolicking at the Rainbow Bridge!! Hugs!!!

I am sorry for your sadness, but in favor of the kind choice you made. I didn't know Quincy, but I do know the pain of loss. Time will allow you to focus more on the good memories.
