I know a little of what you're going through. We had to let our beloved Molly (a maltese) go after congestive heart failure made it impossible for her to live comfortably. I understand the guilt, but you really shouldn't feel guilty.
Because you are doing the right thing. Quincy trusts you completely and will love you no matter what. He needs this release, but it's just from his physical body, he will never be released from your heart or your memory. You are not replacing him, you could never do that, he's one of a kind. This puppy is just going to be there to help you cope with the loss of him. So love and enjoy your puppy knowing that you loved Quincy with everything that you had. You have loved him enough to let him go.
Whew, this is harder to write than I thought it was going to be. I'm sorry I got so emotional about it. But please just know that there are folks out here who are thinking about you today. And my heart goes out to you.
Peace to you,
