WE WILL MISS YOU TOBEY!!!


AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE TOP PICTURES TOBEY WAS OLD AND WAS READY TO GO. I WALKED OVER TO SAY GOODBYE TO MY LITTLE TOBEY AND HAD TO TAKE ONE LAST PICTURE OF HIM! HE WAS MY FIRST "REAL" DOG THAT I PICKED OUT ALL BY MYSELF. WHEN WE BROUGHT HIM HOME HE SLEPT IN THE BED WITH ME. OF COURSE HE GOT TO BIG TO STAY INSIDE, SO HE MOVED OUTSIDE. WHEN I GOT MARRIED HE STAYED WITH MI MI AND PAW PAW AND BECAME THEIR DOG. WHEN THEY MOVED OUT HERE HE WAS OLD AND WE ALL REALLY DID NOT THINK HE WOULD MAKE IT THAT LONG,BUT HE GOT A NEW LIFE OUT HERE! HE LOVED IT AND LOST ABOUT 40 LBS AND WENT FROM BARLEY WALKING TO PLAYING FETCH WITH THE BOYS! HE WAS SUCH A GOOD DOG AND LOVED THE BOYS AND WESTON VERY MUCH! HE WAS ALWAYS VERY PROTECTIVE OF THEM AND THEY ALL LOVED HIM! TODAY OUT OF ALL DAYS WHEN WE WERE LEAVING AUSTIN STARTED ASKING WHERE DUKE, DALLAS, AND TOBEY WHERE AND I TOLD HIM TOBEY WENT TO HEAVEN BECAUSE HIM WAS OLD AND TIRED. AUSTIN HAS NOT STOPPED ASKING ABOUT HIM AND WE HAD TO PRAY THREE TIMES THAT TOBEY WAS OKAY AND IN HEAVEN! I AM JUST GLAD THEY DO NOT REALLY UNDERSTAND AND I AM DREADING THE DAY THEY HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE TO DALLAS AND DUKE. I HAVE NEVER HAD TO DO THIS AND THANK GOD MI MI AND PAW PAW WERE HERE BECAUSE IT WAS VERY HARD SEEING HIM AND SAYING GOODBYE TO HIM FOR THE LAST TIME!!! WE WILL MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU, TOBEY!!!

Sorry about Tobey, we lost our lab last Fall. But I will never forget your mom bring your "basket hound" to show the kids in first grade.

I am so sorry to hear about Tobey. That dog had 9 lives! I remember in high school when he ran away for like a week or two and yall just assumed he was gone for good. Well sure enough he came back. He was a good doggie!
