A Friend to All
I adopted Quincy when he was 5 1/2. He knew nothing but sit. However, the character of this dog needed no teaching. Quincy would never intrude upon anyone’s space. Rather he would just present himself. All he wanted was a pet on the head. His gentle nature won over children who were afraid of him and adults who needed to be accepted for themselves. My little neighbor Emily has been his friend since she was 4 and afraid of him.Every time I would open the door, he would immediately walk out and look to his right to see if she was outside. She is now 14 and I was so glad she came over Monday night to pet and love on him a last time. The nursing home days for 18 months exposed his gentle nature and true liking of all people. He just walked right over to them or jumped upon their bed for a cuddle. We were there 6 days a week and I loved him more and more after each visit. He was just so generous with his being.
His passing is heartbreaking to me. He was with me at the office, showing homes, at closings, the car dealership for service and of course the Petco. He would lay right next to me as I sat at my desk, follow me to the kitchen even if I was just doing the dishes and look back and wait for me if he was walking too fast.
Godspeed my little honey bunny.
