Paw Prints on our Hearts

On November 19, 2014 we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy, Quincey. We lost him to Cancer. He was only 7 years old, and we were lucky enough to be his family for 5 of those years. He may be gone now, but his paw prints will forever be on our hearts.

Quincey was more than just our dog, he was truly a member of our family and my best friend. He was there to welcome my husband and I home after our wedding, and after the births of both of our daughters (that he was so gentle and kind to). He was always there – at the door when I came home, by my feet when I worked, by my bed when I slept, at my chair when I ate – always there with his sweet smile and love to give. It’s been nearly five months since he passed, but I’m still not used to him being gone.

Quincey inspired us to start this blog, and create “Golden Retriever Day” (which falls on February 3rd, his birthday).

We know many of you have gone through this difficult loss – please share your memories with us.

  1. What a sweet boy. So sorry to here Quincy’s life was cut short by such a horrible disease. My Goldens are my first pets and they are indeed my life. Although I have never lost a pet, it is something I think of from time to time.

  2. Kristen ..I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Quincy..there is nothing quite as painful as this ..we too have a Golden…Sophie ..she is 3..and we will always have a Golden..before we had Cockers..and our Bergdorf was 5 when she died from auto immune disease..one day we found out she was sick..March 7 and March March 9 she was gone…well in the past as here we have gone out and bought another puppy…and we should have waited …I was so sad over losing Bergdorf..she was so sweet..I could not give my heart to another…so it was not fair to Sophie..my husband was in love with Sophie…so the rest is history!
