Optimism is always good, and quality of life should always take precedence over quantity of life in my opinion. It is a tough thing to think about, but you show you are a responsible and sensible pet owner by thinking about it. I have been thinking about Timber everyday, and hoping that you can find some answers. It is tough when your buddy is sick.
