tobyI’ll be taking a bit of a break this week from SN. Last evening we had to say goodbye to Toby. He had started to experience heart failure back in May but with many drugs, he was able to come out of it. Sadly his heart started to fail again this week. It was time.

Thank you Toby for almost 10 wonderful years. You were the sweetest and most beautiful Sheltie I’ve ever known. You never met a stranger and everyone who met you wanted to take you home for themselves. You will be very much missed by a lot of people.

I love you, handsome.

    Toby’s loss must be so hard to bear, I know you moved heaven and earth to get him the help he needed. Think of him capering around at Rainbow Bridge, awaiting your reunion. Hugs to you Kelly, from someone who’s been there too.

    Kelly my heart just sank when I saw this post.

    I am typing through tears. I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Toby.

    That face just radiated sweetness and kindness. He will never leave your thoughts.

    How your heart must ache to lose him. Please know our prayers are with you! He was your precious little heart dog. Never ever will there be another like him. You were both so blessed to have each other! He waits for you now at the bridge, healthy once more.

    … Remembering you is easy, I do it every day.
    But, there’s an ache in my heart that will never go away…

    RIP little Toby.

    My condolences on the loss of your kind and beautiful boy. When my Sheltieboy died, I went to a Pet Loss Support Group at my local Animal Humane Society, and found that to be helpful. The vet department of my local university also has a support pet loss support group.
