As many of you know Quincy reached a lifetime milestone of turning 15 human years last week and she did so with spirit and grace. Since then she has had a set back and has been physically declining yet mentally staying as stubborn as usual. Tomorrow she goes on her solo hike. She doesn’t appear to be in any pain. She is doing what she can to be with me, wherever I am, and sleeping. She hasn’t eaten a meal since her birthday, the occasional piece of bacon and half of my steak yesterday lol. Not enough to sustain her weary body. Until then we will both hang out and enjoy the yard. Close friends are welcome to come by and see her for short visits, I know she’s touched many hearts. She’s the reason I met so many of you, via the dog parks, agility, K9ABCs , neighbours…. I’ve been blessed to have her as my family since that day 15yrs ago , the adventures we have had are unforgettable. On more than one occasion she has fought taking her solo hike and stayed with me but I can’t let her fight to the end this time. I love her too much for that. So it’ll be soon, just not right now. As she looks at me from her bed, my heart if full.

So sorry for the loss of your beloved dog. I have a senior dog too, she's 8 this coming 17th of October. Whenever I have this thought that my dogs will leave me sooner or later, my heart really breaks a lot. I almost lost one of them due to her hard delivery of one litter. I remember crying endlessly at home while waiting for the Vet's advice. I have 5 dog's and I love each one of them and I don't know how to live without them.

"I attended the March 06, 2021 K9ABCs first aid course run by Laurie. Excellent presentation of the material - Laurie is an amazing teacher combining the book material with personal experience both as a paramedic and as a dog lover. What stood out for me was the dog 'Annie': a rubber dog to practice all the handling skills needed for an emergency - CPR, assisted breathing, pulse check. Class was run in a highly professional manner with love an care for animals exuding at all times. All of it with COVID restrictions in place and well observed. Thank you Laurie, I'll be back for refreshers when time comes." Violeta Toma, 2021
