Quinta starts a new journey.

September 5th, 2013 · 7 Comments · Uncategorized

I spent Tuesday night next to Quinta’s body. In the morning, he seemed so peaceful after finally being released from the discomfort of illness. Friends stopped by the house throughout the day to pay their respects and leave flowers. Everyone commented on what a kind and loving dog Quinta was and how much joy he […]

Quinta goes to the rainbow bridge.

Quinta passed away late Tuesday night, here at home. So as to make sure that I would not be alone, he waited until Tuesday when he knew that our dog-sitter would be spending the night. Quinta was in some discomfort all day Tuesday, but did not seem to be in pain. He passed away quietly […]

Quinta fights back — and enjoys his special pancakes.

A heartfelt thanks for everyone’s kind messages of support, which were duly received and appreciated here across the Pacific. Quinta, while weak and in discomfort from his enlarged liver, is fighting back as if to insist that he is still alive and has a lot of capacity for love and joy. He can still get […]

Quinta says “Not today”.

Last night, Quinta went into shock from internal bleeding in his liver. I called our vet who kindly agreed to attend to him in the middle of the night. X-rays and ultrasound revealed that Quinta’s liver is abnormally enlarged, putting pressure on his other organs, including his stomach and his lung. Quinta was in such […]

Quinta has acupuncture.

In his anemic condition, Quinta tires easily and pants frequently, especially at night. At the recommendation of our vet, we rented an oxygen machine to help Quinta breath more easily while he is sleeping. This seems to be helping, but Quinta still wakes up several times during the night and pants heavily. Yesterday, our vet […]

Quinta gets a new toy.

Monday evening, one of our former dog-sitters for Quinta came to visit. She had cared for Quinta for a couple of years several times a week and was one of Quinta’s favorite dog-sitters. She had not been aware of Quinta’s surgery and cancer diagnosis, but when she found out she rushed over to see Quinta. […]

Quinta goes for a check-up.

August 17th, 2013 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Today — August 18 — is exactly a month since Quinta’s surgery. So much has happened and Quinta and I went through so many ups and downs during the past month that it feels a lot longer. Quinta has aged visibly during this period. The grey hair on his face is more prominent and, while […]

Quinta has therapy.

It’s an unprecedented hot weekend in Japan (the Tokyo area reached close to 40 degrees centigrate yesterday), so we have been staying indoors in the air conditioned house and putting off more outside buggy trips for Quinta. That does not mean that the weekend has been uneventful. Friends visited Saturday to check up on Quinta. […]

Quinta has a busy Sunday.

Quinta had a busy day today. After what seemed like a slow and quiet morning, his grandma and grandpa (my parents) came over for a visit. They had not seen Quinta since the surgery, so were eager to see him. When they came into the living room, Quinta immediately got up and hopped over to […]

Quinta goes for a walk — in his new buggy.

August 3rd, 2013 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Today, Quinta and I went on our “regular” walk around our neighborhood — in Quinta’s new buggy! Since he got home, Quinta has been a little hesitant about going outside. He was, however, happy to get into his new buggy and to go for a ride on our regular route. We went to visit the […]
