He's 42 y/o, blind, and going downhill. I'd say his quality of life is pretty much nil at this point.
Animals do not fear death. They instinctively fight for survival, but when death comes it's just part of the natural cycle. Humans are the only species who truly fear death.
I don't know how long he's been with you, but you've obviously taken good care of him during that time. Now it's time to give him the last, best gift we can give our nonhuman companions; relief from his failing body.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
