Toby came to me when he was six weeks old. Toby was a peke-a-poo and absolutely adorable as a baby. I have had many dogs and loved them old, but once in a while there comes a special pet and that was my Toby. From the time he came home with me he never left my side. Where I went so did he. Toby would cry if he could not follow me throughout the house or outside. When I would leave the house he would sit by the door until I came home. Toby was gentle, sweet and devoted. He would sit by my side and sleep on my bed next to me. His time was too short on the planet. I never realized just how very much Toby meant to me and how much comfort he gave me until he died. I miss my Toby every single day and always will. There will be no other dog like him.|
Toby has been gone for a year now. I miss him every day of the week. I see Toby in every room of my home and feel him lying next to me in bed. Toby was simply born to be special. All he wanted was to be with me. I loved him from day one and still love him more than I ever knew I could. Toby made each day special just because he was there. I miss my Toby and will keep him in my heart always.
Toby will be gone for two years very shortly and I still miss him every day of the week. I think of him daily and still see him in every room in this house. No matter what I do he is in my thoughts. Toby was the comfort of my life and always gave of himself. I have had a lot of dogs and still do have 5 dogs. I love them all, but Toby just gave of himself to provide love and comfort to me. Happy Easter my love.
Toby made my life a joy every day. I have five dogs and love them all. I still feel the loss of Toby every day. He was the companion that made my life work. If I was sad there was Toby, if I was worried there was Toby and he always gave me happiness and joy. How I wish he was still with me.
6/13/2013. My pet Cuddles just passed away at the age of 15. She was Toby's sister. I was given permission to place the following poem in Toby's residency, but this poem says it all for all of my loving pets - Penny, Molly, Cuddles and Toby.
THE LAST BATTLE
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
You will be sad I understand,
for on this day, more than the rest,
We had had so many happy years,
Take me to where my needs they'll tend,
Although my tail its last was waved,
4/28/2014 - Toby died on this day in 2010 and there has never been one day where he has not been in my thoughts. Toby gave me all of his love and only asked that he be by my side at all times. He would sit and wait by the door if I was gone - no matter how long. He had to be with me and yet he did not like to be held. Toby gave me comfort and joy as no other. It was just his nature. I currently have four dogs that I love very much and they are loving. It is just that if we are lucky, we may have a pet like Toby to get us through the day. Toby I love you and will always have your memory with me
4/28/2016 - I still miss you everyday. I see you in all your favorite places. You were such a beautiful and wonderful companion that nothing will ever replace you. I love all of the four dogs that live with me now, but you were unique. Toby, you gave me unconditional love and for that I am grateful. You will always be with me. Rest peacefully.
