RIP Quincy Oct 08, 2006 - Oct 04, 2014
DT Friends,

it is with much sadness I want to let you know we had to let Quincy go yesterday. Very unexpected. Cancer.

He's been having an ongoing problem with chronic diarrhea. It was getting worse despite wait and see and food changes and meds by vets. On some more detailed imaging and testing, found many tumors that had spread among multiple organs including intestines. Specialist said definitely would explain the symptoms. Prognosis was not good. He could barely make a bowel movement. He was starting to puke up everything he ate. So we made the difficult decision to send him on to the bridge. I was there with him. He knew something was wrong with him - he was sick. He laid with me on the floor beside him, laid his head down, and went to sleep.

What a sad sad day - has torn my heart out. We knew we would lose him someday - just not like this so suddenly out of the blue.

So sorry for your loss. What a lucky boy to have been loved by you.

I am just heartbroken for you over this tremendous loss of Quincy. If it helps to talk about him or post pictures, you know we are all here for you.

Quincy had the best Dad in the world, and the love was mutual.
- so sad for you now, Q-man was a favorite, around the DT world

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this. :(

I lost my first boy out of the blue so I know how much it hurts to lose them so unexpectedly. My heart goes out to you.

RIP Quincy, run free boy.

Oh, DR, I am so sorry for your loss. I did a double-take when I saw this thread title. Q was beyond lucky to have you for his human.

RIP Quincy

My heart sank when I saw this topic. He has always been one of my favorite DT Dobes. :( So sorry. So so so sorry.

I'm so sorry for your lost. Your post touched my heart as I'm sure Quincy touched yours. RIP Quincy. He's happy and healthy now.

lestat1978 10-05-2014 12:07 PM

So sorry about Q. :(

spocksdad 10-05-2014 12:41 PM

Sorry DR, about Quincy.. :(:(:(

Quincy was obviously the most photographed Dobe on DT,
and his thoughts, the most paraphrased, in Q's own sarcastic style. :)
But, more importantly, Q was immensely loved by his human companions.

Rest in Peace, Quincy. We all enjoyed sharing your life here on DT.

Hooligan 10-05-2014 12:47 PM

I'm so sorry. Run free, sweet boy.

Coco Loco 10-05-2014 12:49 PM

DR I am so sorry for the loss of your much loved boy. Quincy had a wonderful life with you and your wife and it was very evident to all of us here.

Thanks for sharing him with us. My sincerest condolences to you and your wife.

DogsR4Life 10-05-2014 12:55 PM

Im so sorry for your loss, Im going to miss your threads of the adorable photos of Q

RIP buddy :(

I'm so sorry to hear about Quincy--as hard as it is to let them go and as devastating as it is for you to lose him unexpectedly sometimes it is the kindest thing you will ever do for a beloved pet.

Run free and be well Quincy...I've sent some boys off before you so you'll have playmates and running partners.

You better change the coordinates of the "location"--it should probably be two infinity signs now.

Quincy, of course, will live on not just in your memory but in the memory of many of us...

MissPhoebe 10-05-2014 01:30 PM

Phoebe and I send our condolences. So sorry.

Sorry just never seems good enough for things like this. There just isn't a word that expresses how bad I feel for you guys losing poor Q. He was one of my DT favorites. I always loved your pictures of him. He was so expressive and will be sorely missed.

Maria1 10-05-2014 02:35 PM

I'm sorry for your loss.

I will light a candle for Quincy. May he be at peace.

dobermansrule 10-05-2014 02:57 PM

Thank you everybody for your kind words. This is never easy. And it helps to focus on the positive memories. We know we did the right thing - this poor dog was sick and he's so stoic he didn't want to bother us with it.

Not a proper photo tribute to him, but some Q photos to remember him. And I need to dig up some of his puppy pictures.

Oh, DR, I'm so, so sorry. What a shock this must have been. Words truly fail me at this time, I'm speechless.

Just so sorry you had to make this choice for Quincy, but it was the kindest choice you could make. Heartbreaking...

Godspeed, Quincy
