Thank you every pup, cat, moms and dads for your continued outpour of special messages, gifts and tributes to our precious boy. I am meeting some of you for the very first time. Even though I've been the one who has maintained all the pet pages, Harvey comes and reads everything when he has time.
I am working from home today and off all of next week. I've been so caught up with work it is a huge relief. Harvey really did not want to go to work today but he was obligated to teach an all-day training class so he went.
First thing I thought about this morning was Quincy of course, but also that Harvey would not be walking him this morning as he always did before leaving for work, rain or shine. We will miss him so much.
I confess that I started collecting things to make Quincy's current page about a week ago. That's why I was able to get it up so quickly yesterday after we got back from the hospital. But while I was doing that, I realized Harvey was vacuuming, mopping the cats' dining room, washing out all their food bowls, and then told me he was going for a walk to the park.
As many of you know, Quincy took delight in collecting tennis balls during his walk, most of which he would find in the bushes near the tennis court at the nearby park. The first thing he would do after coming back from a walk with his Dad was look for me to proudly show me his find. Even when he didn't come back with anything he still came to make sure I knew he was back.
After awhile we'd gather up most of the tennis balls and donate them to the dog park. I counted exactly ten of them this morning all around the house. I will be keeping those.
I also forgot to mention that when we thanked Dr. Kiselow and the nurse for all they did for Quincy the past year, they told us it was a pleasure to serve him. We thought that was such a honorable thing to say.
I recalled alot of things about Quincy starting from when he was a puppy, and I'll share some of those memories in another diary entry. To those of you who mentioned that you viewed Quincy's videos recently, I did the same today.
Thank you all.
Janet you and Harvey have a beautiful new guardian angel to watch over you. I've been reading the comments people have left with their presents and the tears came all over again. It is such a joy to see how many lives he touched and how much he was loved. Peace be with you during these difficult times.
All our love,
Austin, Doo & Lou Ann
Big hugs for y'all. We'll all miss Quincy.
We thought about Quincy today as well, we know he is at the heaven doggie park looking for tennis balls...and smiling down on you...
Mom is also thinking of you, she knows how you feel because of our Tallulah who also battled cancer as you know...it is hard for Mom to look at Quincy vidoes now she will this weekend..we all send you loving hugs and kisses.
Mia and family
Quincy's our tennis ball hunter here at the Bridge.
We watched his videos, also.
Our hearts and thoughts are with you.
Cookie...make sure you have plenty of tennis balls for that boy..he loves 'em! Maybe you can hide them like easter eggs and Quincy can go find them like he did in the bushes and grass by the tennis courts. He'll love that.
