Tojam who was also known as Bubbie was a very special dog to us. He was a part of our family for 14 years and brought so much happiness to our home.Its hard to believe he is gone and we miss him very much.He will always have a special place in our hearts.Tojam loved his family and he loved his soccer ball..in the 14 years he had maybe 3 soccer balls and thats really the only toy he liked..He liked to play with his soccer ball with Brandon..He always liked to be in the kitchen when i was cooking..looking for something to drop so he could get it.it was very hard fixing Thanksgiving food without him here by my side.Dec.13.Hey Bubbie,we miss you more than words can say,but we don't have to watch you be so sick and not able to eat anymore.Just can't imagine not having you here this Christmas to help me wrap the presents.But guess what, we have a new baby shih tzu..his name is Bailey,he came home Sat.he was born exactly 1 week before you left us.He will never ever replace you, but he is going to help fill the loneliness you left in our home.You would have liked him,he's spunky like you used to be and does so many things that remind us of you.We haven't bought him a christmas present yet, but we promise that it won't be a soccer ball..We wish you were still here,but we know you stayed as long as you could,not a day goes by that we don't think of you and i sure miss you at the back door every day,won't be long before Bailey will be there waiting,but it won't be you.You were the best.Dec.23 hey Bubbie, well its almost christmas,i had an awful time wrapping those presents without your help but i managed to get it done.Bailey tried so hard to help but he has to learn how first.He is a little onery, i don't remember you being that way,but he sure is keeping us hopping.We miss you very much,sometimes i still look for you.You left us years of wonderful memories and we'll never forget you.|
We loved you so much.So Merry Christmas, our christmas won't be the same without you.I didn't leave you a present because you have your soccer ball and that's all you ever wanted,you were the best!Dec.29th Hey Bubbie,came in to remove your christmas tree,christams is over and we always liked to get that tree out of the way,remember?We sure missed you this Christmas.Everyone came here for dinner.Jim said he missed you under the table begging for food.Bailey is growing and already so spoiled.He has his own personality, different from you,but in some ways so much like you.But he will never take your place.You have your very own place in our hearts.We miss you!Jan1,2006..Hey Bubbie,Happy New Year,am sure gonna miss you this year.Feb.14,Happy Valentine's Day Bubbie..I sure do miss you a lot and think of you every day.Tonight I had chicken for supper and i thought about how i use to go buy you a chicken breast from KFC and you could only take about 2-3 bites of it when you were so sick and i would go get you a hamburger from wendy's, roast beef from ranchers but you just couldn't eat anything much..those were hard times for me, but i know you aren't sick anymore and that makes it easier to bear..Bailey is growing so fast and he's so onery..he is spoiled,just like you were,we hope he grows up to be like you,you were the best.We miss you!Oct.12,hey Tojam,today you would have been 15 yrs.old,HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!We remember last yr. on your birthday you were getting so sick but you managed to eat your birthday ice cream,and that was the last bite you ever ate, you left us a few days later.I haven't been here to visit for awhile, but that doesn't mean i have forgotten you,not a day goes by that i don't think of you and miss you.Bailey will soon be a yr. old and he keeps us a lot of company but he never replaced you,you could never be replaced, you were the best..Miss you!Oct.22.Hey Bubbie, you left us a year ago today,i'll never forget that morning setting by you on the floor as you were dying and the peaceful look you had on your face when you died..guess you weren't in pain anymore.seems like forever since you left and we still miss you just as much.Time and Bailey have helped us though and we hope you're having lots of fun at rainbow bridge.Miss you!
