Mr Toby was welcomed into our home on 01/14/2019 at the age of 7yrs old. His previous family was a friend of the family. The first time I met Toby was when we visited my husband's friend & I just fell in love with Mr Toby. I told his friend if he was ever unable to care for him I would gladly take him no questions asked. I enjoyed taking Toby many places with me. He knew my routine & would run back & forth from the door to me whining with excitement because he knew it was time to go. When we would go to get in line at school, we would go an hour & a half early & walk the loop before heading back to the car for a nap. Anytime we took him to the store with us, everyone we walked passed just loved him & wanted to pet him. I would try to take him with me as much as I could because he had separation anxiety. When at home Toby enjoyed running in the backyard & chasing birds or neighborhood cats. He had a tree that was his absolute favorite that he liked to run under & bark at the birds. I loved watching him run & his ears flop up & down. He was so precious to me & was such a good boy all the time whether he was on or off the leash. Our last outing we took him to the park & walked. We went on a trail at the wood line & he found a tree he had to bark up when he saw a squirrel. I loved seeing the excitement in his eyes & how focused he was. He was my little sidekick. At night he would cuddle up to my side & sleep under the covers. I know he got cold easily so I always made sure he was covered whether it was with my blanket or his. He had a few polo shirts I enjoyed dressing him in. He had a favorite food bowl & a favorite toy turtle that had many squeakers in it. I will miss his warmth & giving him kisses on the top of his head & snout. I always loved how his ears would randomly be positioned after he would wake up from a nap. I loved taking pictures of him & posting them to his instagram. But probably what i'll miss most of all was how he would gently jump up & put his paws on my leg when he wanted my attention.|
I know his fur-brothers & fur-sisters will really miss him just as much as our family & friends will.
I pray he knows how much he was loved & enjoyed every waking moment with us because I truly loved every moment I had with him.
