Today’s post shares a Qannik update from our vet visit yesterday as well as some photographs from last night’s family walk.
Canines add so much happiness to human lives that we hate to focus on the fact that dogs’ lives are just too short. Unfortunately, we determined through yesterday’s vet visit that Qannik has a splenic mass. After reviewing our options, we have decided on a course of care focused on comfort and quality of life. The reality is that our time with the Q-Tip is very short, but he is enjoying lots of porch time, mountain breezes, snooter kisses, belly scratches and ear rubs. His appetite is solid and he is moving about the yard on his own. When he is ready for the next adventure, he will let us know.
We decided to fill today’s post with pictures from our Junior Team walk last night because they highlight what is so important in life – enjoying the simple, every day, mundane activities that are the foundation of all of our memories. So go have fun and savor the simple things.
P.S. – Hu-Dad says he appreciates all of the notes, messages and social media comments that have come his way since we received the news. We hope you understand that he is not taking the time to respond to them right now. Just know we really, sincerely appreciate every kind word and thought.
