Memories of Toby Tobias Ko
Dear Tobias

You are my first most amazing heroic doggo that has ever impacted my life substantially.  The day I first saw you; I knew you were the one for me.   There was clearly no mistake as I had rescued you and you had rescued me.  You blessed my life each day and showered me with all of your love.  Never had you stopped looking back for me as you waited for me to walk side by side with you every day my little gentleman.  You loved climbing up and putting your face full blast to the AC in the car as you would lay on the center console while holding my hand with your paws - our favorite moment together. You earned a deep profound respect as you had portrayed so much gusto throughout your two year fight with cancer leading up to your final hour. I will love and admire you for the rest of my life time.  

More than words could ever say, you saved my life in more ways than one the day we locked eyes and I had spent the rest of your life time making every second of every minute count.   You left paw prints all over my heart the day you left me. . .  time just stood still.  

You were brazen, resilient, dapper an absolute gentleman and nonetheless amazing.

- mountain climber
- bear and racoon fighter
- squirrel mouse bird killer
- street sweeper hatin
- butt biting
- legendary mountain lion fighter
- best all time dgaf poker face 
- AC hogging

I love you, be happy and be free.  Cancer fighter - Team Tobias.  You are my world now until the end of time.

Every time you lose something so special that is so significant it definitely leaves such a deep loss that it is nothing less of irreplaceable. Anyone who has made the decision to let their fur baby go knows how debilitating and heartbreaking that moment is and the post outcome of being able to endure grievance. Nothing can prepare you for how infinite the days, hours, minutes and seconds may seem. My 15 yr old geriatric dog, Tobias, was fighting cancer and dealing with incontinence for two years due to a mass in his liver the size of a grapefruit - Team Tobias. Tobias was not given the chance to undergo surgery due to his age and the fact that the mass was just too close to the base risking the chance of a heart rupture. If anyone that knows a family member, relative, friend or animal that was or is fighting cancer knows just how amazing they truly are. They deserve all the happiness in the world for their ailment, yes, life is unfair.

I'm truly sorry for this substantial loss sweetie as I know and witnessed how much Tobias meant to you. I miss the guy myself already. He truly represents my rekindling romance with the dog life and this is the gift you and your fur babies have given me for what I'll be forever grateful. Tobias was a one of kind character with a pure love for his darling Dee that cannot be matched or replaced. This great memorial will help to carry the memory of Tobias but nothing can take him away from our hearts. I leave the gift of the mirror as it one of the many things I remember the unique Tobias doing, looking in the mirror in the hallway at himself. He would stare not in vanity but rather for reflection and speculation about the super content life and memories he has experienced under his beloved Dee. God bless the Handsome Hipster Tobias!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Tobias. Please find comfort in knowing that Tobias is now at Rainbows Bridge and making lots of friends. Saying goodbye is never easy. I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. On January 11, 2013, I lost my faithful friend Hannah who was a beautiful blue tick hound dog. On August 2, 2013 another one of my beautiful cats, Sammi, a black and white tabby, went to Rainbows Bridge. April 9, 2014, Maci, my English Bulldog passed over to Rainbows Bridge. Maci and Hannah were best friends. On March 20, 2017 my sweet little calico Gabbi crossed over Rainbow's Bridge. I adopted her about a month after Spooky passed away and Gabbi also lived to be almost 16 years old. I am sure that Tobias and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: http://www.rainbowsbridge.com/residents/Spook002/resident.HTM Take Care, Susan

Dee, You made the right decision, but it's never easy. I'm sorry for your loss. Know that you are not alone. I, too, have lost a beloved pet; everyone in this website have. We know you're hurting, and we're here for you. We feel the pain that you feel; we've suffered the loneliness that you suffer, at not having our beloved pet by our side anymore. But we all feel the same relief---that where our beloved pets are now, they're safe, and happy, and content, whatever afflicted them in this life is gone. And we all share the same hope---one day, we will be together again with our beloved ones. My baby, a female Beagle named River, left for Rainbow Bridge on March 21, 2017; here she is now--- https://www.rainbowsbridge.com/residents/RIVER002/Resident.htm

Toby Tobias Ko I am sorry for your loss. Dee loves you and misses you very much. My Perseus went to Rainbow Bridge when he was 14. There are no more aches or pains. No rain only sunshine.

Dee-Nothing prepares us for the depth of sadness following the loss of a best friend who enriched your life and taught you the meaning of love, compassion, strength and resilience. May you gather memories of times gone by to bring comfort in your time and need and sorrow. I am so deeply sorry for your loss and left a gift of a pull rope to keep your connection, as love does not die, ever. Never let go!

Hello, handsome Toby Tobias Ko, welcome to sunny Paradise meadow by Rainbow Bridge. Mommy loves and misses you so...she made you a beautiful place and wrote loving words about you. We asked our Pressy to welcome you and be a playmate to chase colorful rainbows and give you special kitty love headbumps. She'll show you wonders of Paradise meadow and teach you to send love signs on the wind so Mommy feels your loving presence with her and sweet kisses in gentle breezes. You're now a guardian star shining brightly until she comes to cross the Bridge together for all time. We ask she not be so sad but treasure memories of you and remember you're nestled beside your pawprints deep in her heart forever. Play meadow games with other furangels but stop often to smile at Mommy so she feels the warmth of your love surround her and knows you miss her too and are with her. Soar among clouds now on silvery new angel wings to watch over Mommy always, beloved sweet Tobias. Pressy's Grandpa

For sweet Tobias, I know that during your lifetime you gave Dee much joy. Now I am wishing for you lots and lots of happiness playing in the meadows beyond the Rainbow Bridge. From looking at your photo and reading what Dee wrote for and about you it is obvious that you came from a very warm and loving home. Tobias I have a wonderful playmate for you. His name is Pedro and he is adorable just like you. I know you two will be very good friends. For Dee, I just visited your Tobias' Rainbows Bridge residency and wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your precious furangel. I am sure if asked, Tobias would have said that every day spent with you was a blessing. Having lost my little dog Pedro I can understand how you must be feeling and how much you must miss Tobias. Wishing you all the very best always, Rosalind (Pedro's Mom).

Dear Toby Tobias Ko, you are truly handsome. Please go to the Bridge and send your precious love down the Rainbow straight into the heart of your mom who misses you so much, and she will send her love right back to you on angels' wings. Dear Dee, your world has lost a very special furperson, family member and friend, and heaven has welcomed Home a very special soul. Tobias is now your very own angel, watching over and for you, just as Tashi, Katy and BG are watching over us, until you meet again and cross the Bridge together. May his sweet presence continually nuzzle your heart until then, and may you find comfort in knowing that the silver thread of love that binds you heart to heart with Tobias will never be broken..you are a team forever. Many blessings and much peace, Clare and Martha...Please visit our Tashi at http://www.rainbowsbridge.com/residents/TASHI002/resident.HTM

This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Toby Tobias Ko on January 31, 2002 rescued @ Baldwin Park Humane Society and passed away on August 4, 2017 @ 11:11am to Rainbow Bridge Heaven. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.

TOBY TOBIAS KO, my love for you lives forever in my heart...

Today I passed by Newport Beach Pontoon and immediately was taken back by the last memory I had there which was our time on the pontoon together cruising the ocean. My eyes filled with tears. No matter how much time has gone by it will never get easier. I miss you tremendously and know that there is no other like you. You are irreplaceable. I wish I had more time with you but I know how much pain you were in. Your perseverance is my inspiration. You stayed here for me tysm my godsend. In honor of your anniversary passing I made a post of you; letting the world know just how special you are to me. I'm so blessed that we crossed paths. I would never change it for anything. My love, I'm thinking of you always. Talk to you soon my furbaby handsome angel. Beautiful you xoxo.

Hello sweetheart I still miss you everyday. I heard a song on the radio and immediately I thought of you then I checked out the music vid. I was taken back because the video was about a little girl receiving a puppy on her bday and the transition of her going into high school with troubles of being unpopular. Her doggo could feel her energy and was always by her side just like how you were by my side through my struggles. The vid ended with her letting her doggo go to rainbow bridge heaven as hard as that was for her. She wanted her doggo to be happy no matter the inevitable. It wrecked me. Since the passing of your anniversary, I had a very difficult time. I still do and til this day. I am never the same Tobias. You brought life and happiness in my world and that is what happens when something that is so significant that impacts my life is then truly deemed unimaginable. Not a time goes by that I don't tear when I come to your page and write my thoughts to you. It's all raw emotions because you are the love of my life. I will see you one day at Rainbow Bridge iflysm my heart. Marshmello ft. Bastille - Happier <3 I dedicate to you Tobias.

Tomorrow will be the official one year mark since you have left me. These past few weeks leading up to this moment has been challenging. I have thought about you every single day since that heartbreaking moment that you closed your eyes. My life has become quite unclear since the moment you had left. The only thing truly clear in my mind is our bond and that will never fade. You are truly one of a kind and you had given me more to life than I could ever want. You made me want to live again but without you here it just isn't so great. There are just some things in life that you could never replace; a void that could never be filled or fixed. That is what happens when something so precious impacts your world that is deemed unimaginable. Thank you for giving me life, hope and happiness when you walked into my life. I love you always Toby Tobias Ko. My heart is with you, now and forever.

Hello my sweet handsome angel furbaby, I've been missing you and thinking of you every single day. I took Phoebs the other day to the same park which was the last park that you had went to prior to August of last year. The memories that we had created; you were there in my heart. The special bond that we had together I will hold forever dearly and cannot wait for the day that we cross paths again. I am looking forward to being with you someday again. My love shines bright for you, guidance, protection and happiness. In you greatest time of need I am always there with you. iLy always <333 be happy be free.

My sweethandsome angel. Just tonight as I arrived home from work, your auntie and I had a beautiful moment when we mentioned you my dear sweet little man. You brought smiles to our face. Just the thought of your snazzy dapper ways. I must admit, there is no other like you #irreplaceable. You are the first love of my life and I miss you dearly. When I see photos of you, I envision the way that I would hug you and smother you with kisses. You and my love for you lives forever in my heart. I can't wait for the day that I can see you again. iLy always<333 xoxo.

Just yesterday I was doing some cleaning and found the fur trimmer that I once trimmed your fur with. There was some of your fur in the trimmer box. As I touched the fur it felt like I was touching you again. All those feelings came rushing back to me, what it feels like to feel your fur again. I kept it :) I miss and love you so much. I can't wait to see you again my handsome little angel.

My handsome little angel furbaby you answered my prayers when we crossed paths and we had locked eyes in my dream post celebration of your bday on January 31st. Ever since that day, you already know I had carried that with me day in and day out. Never has a day gone by where I don't think of you and miss you dearly. No amount of time could ever lessen my love for you; our bond never fades. You were my first furbaby and everyday I know you are watching over me. My heart is always with you ilysm.


MERRY CHRISTMAS TOBIAS MY SWEET HANDSOME ANGEL!!! I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH. I thought of you just last night and looked at your photos then reminisced about our love we once shared dog momma and son. Your love that you have given me and embraced me with never leaves me. I still feel it everyday sweetheart. You changed my life the day I first met you and the day I lost you. My tears are still present just the thought of you as if it was the day that I lost you. You're my heart now and forever. Looking forward to sending my love again on New Years 2018. We will meet again and I will always look forward to that day now until the end of time. Sending you lots and lots of hugs and kisses all over my love my world my heart.

Tobias my sweet handsome angel I hope you are well; happy, pain free and playing with all the other doggies. These past couple of days have been extremely difficult as my heart bleeds because I often reminisce your presence:
-the way how you would bark at me for a treat every night
-on car rides wiggle up to the car console for the AC effect on full blast
-the way you would wait for me wherever we went new and old territory
-and the way I would kiss your fluffy cute face while we held paws/hands
You were my first handsome furbaby and my love for you is constant. I pray for your happiness everyday and hope that one day my wish is granted and I will be reunited with you. What you have done for me was give me the best gift and that gift was your selfless love, your protection and just being you. I love you so much Tobias, now and forever. I still miss you as if it was the day I lost you.

9/6/17 - Hi Tobias, it's been a month since you left to Rainbow Bridge Heaven. There is not one day that goes by that I do not miss you and wish that I could still hold your paws the way that we used to hold hands. So much has happened, I always carry your urn while we walk Phoebs and bring you along for car rides. I pray for you everyday, wishing you all the happiness with lots of hugs and kisses. I even dreamed about you that you were running free so curious yet so happy. All I want is for you to be free, loved and filled with joy and laughter. So many people have messaged me their condolences telling me just how amazing you are. You're always on my mind and hold a very very special place in my heart forever Tobias. You are my world my handsome fur angel baby I LOVE YOU now til the end of time.
