August 15, 2013

The Mighty Quinn Marie Sehi-Smith in the arms of his momma, hugged by his soulmate dad, and surrounded by the White Dog Army was helped over the Rainbow Bridge late this morning. He took a turn for the worse on Wednesday night beginning seizures again which the medication could not stop. Quinn asked for release from the constant body upheaval and mind jumbling. He fought hard but this round was too much. With love and compassion the entire WDA walked with him to the Bridge and howled our undying devotion as he crossed.
Thank you for your continued prayers and hopes for a miracle. You truly did make a difference and have provided a haven of comfort over this past week.

Dear WDA and Susan, Steve, and Micheal,

I am completely devastated by the news. Please accept my deepest, heartfelt sympathies for the loss of your beautiful, remarkable boy Quinn. He really put up a strong fight, bless his little heart. The picture of Quinn and his Mama brings tears flowing. It is so beautiful and touching. I am glad Quinn was surrounded by all of you in his time of passing, the love helping him cross in peace. May you all find comfort in that.

I know Suka was there to meet his little blogging buddy. :->

If you need anything, please let me know.

Much hugs and love to all of you.

Love,

K

Amber DaWeenie said...

There are just no words to express how sorry I am to be getting this news. We prayed and hoped for a miracle, but God had a much more important job for Quinn to do at the Bridge. Quinn answered the call with dignity and bravery and grace.

Run young and seizure free, beautiful boy. And if you meet our Eskie, Reno, give him our love.

holly and the huskies said...

We are so very sorry to hear about Quinn. I am sure our beloved Oreo was there to greet him and are running and playing. We send lots of husky hugs!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Its almost time for the stars to shine in the sky- and I am going out to look for the new bright star for Quinn.
My eyes have tears along with yours. He fought so hard, but when he knew he had enough- he told you so.
You listened and granted the most painful request of all- to be free from the seizures and sickness.
You did everything you could . You were the best family ever.
Quinn now is being loved by the angels at the Bridge. He was special and there will be special plans for him- to be granted by Mother Earth.
We cry with you. We sit beside you. Blogland circles you in love.
My heart hurts with yours,
love

Swimflyaway said...

I'm sorry I so rarely comment on your blog. We are ABQ neighbors, after all.

I hate to say "I'm sorry". It must feel meaningless to you when ya'll read this. Ever since I started reading this blog (just before Nuka came to the family) I have loved reading about Quinn's gentle spirit. And since sorry doesn't cover it, I'll say thank you. Thank you for sharing you lovely boy with the rest of us. He made the world a better place.

Prayers.
