Yesterday, my family said goodbye to our sweet and precious Toby. He was in the hospital for most of last week, before his little body became too tired and gave out. Thankfully, he was able to spend his last few days at home, lounging on his favorite pillows and getting plenty of snuggles from my parents. I feel so grateful for the joy and love that Toby brought into our family and for the way he loved us unconditionally. Its been incredibly painful to say goodbye, particularly from so far away, but I'm so grateful for my sweet parents who have wrapped him in love and done every thing possible for him in his last days. Toby was such an important part of our family, and he is already missed beyond belief.
Sweet Toby, you were such a delightful and loving companion, and from the moment I first held you in the palm of my hand (you were so tiny!), I knew we would take good care of each other. Thank you for loving me unconditionally and for being the best couch snuggler a girl could ask for. I know you're in a better place, chasing critters, barking to no end, and eating all the "people food" you can handle. You are missed, loved, and forever treasured. Goodbye, little guy.
