He lived life to the fullest - he had a BALL!
It is so hard to say goodbye to our furry family member of 17 years! It was an agonizing decision to make but poor Toby's body was just done - it was much too hard for him to get around any longer. We extended his life by exactly four months with the help of those adorable little traction socks. I miss everything about him right now - his staggering little walk and endearing expression and little worn brown ears. There's a huge vacancy in our home without him here and it will take a long time to adjust. Toby was actually the sweetest terrier I've ever met - not an aggressive bone in his body - yes, he was obsessed with the tennis ball and that was totally his charm. He had an intensity about the ball that was all his own! I just know he's zooming around right now catching balls and having a good time - and he knows he was very loved!
Some wonderful photos from the past - all featuring Toby!
