Arrival Story:
We had one Japanese chin and decided he needed company when we are gone to work so he wouldn't be alone all day. We checked out breeders on the internet and found one that had Japanese Chin puppies. We ordered a puppy and a couple of weeks later we went to the airport to meet our new little Chin. He was so scared he was shaking, he was all buried in shredded newspaper, just his little head sticking out. He was so tiny and just adorable, we could hardly wait to get home so he could meet his brother.

Toby Jo's Stories


Thank You

It's been almost a month since our Toby Jo left for the Rainbow Bridge, Everything reminds me of him. I miss him sitting on the porch looking over his yard and making sure all was well. The way he constantly had to know where my husband was and how he followed dad everywhere. How he met us at the gate when ever we came home and his big smile and tail wagging because he was so happy to see us. Going to the dog park for the first time without Toby was heart breaking, his favorite place since he was two years old. We loved him so much. I haven't had the time to thank each friend who sent rosettes, pawmail, pictures, thoughtful words and prayers but please know how much each one was appreaciated, I've read every single message more than once. It has helped us so much to know people care. Toby is burried next to Sammy at Sleepy Hallow Pet Cemetary. They were best buddies since the day we got Toby so Sammy would have company while we were at work and he had to be alone during the day. It was the best thing we ever did, they loved each other from the second they met, so it's right that they should be together now. I am having lots of problems getting the pictures posted on Toby Jo's page, I don't know if everyone is or just me but today it's telling me that I am at my limit of 11 and if I want more to get Dogster Plus. When I go to sign up for Dogster Plus it tells me I already have it. I get other messages too like couldn't read the file, I'll keep trying, once in awhile it does actually work.

 

Our Toby is an Angel

Today our Toby became an Angel. We are missing him so much. Thank you everyone for all the kind words, pawmails, rosettes and especially for all the prayers. Tobys doctor didn't think he'd make it through the July 4th weekend so I truly believe everyones prayers gave us an extra month to be with him.

Toby Jo, you have left a huge hole in our lives, you can't imagine how much you are missed. Right now everything reminds us of you and the memories of happy times together brings tears to our eyes. Upstairs is your little bed, tonight for the first time you won't be in it. In the kitchen is your little dish. It was washed and ready for you to have breakfast. We put the stroller away, it was too painful to have to see it. It was such a reminder that you were too sick to walk the trails at the dog park, I didn't mind pushing you around in it and you didn't seem to mind being in it. We just enjoyed being together at your favorite place in the world so we did what we could to make that happen. We love you so much lil' Toby Doobers and forever you will stay in our hearts. Fly Free Sweet Boy.....love, mom, dad, Sarge, Cory and JoJo

 

Toby Jo Update

Just a quick update on Toby. We took him to the vet yesterday and the news was pretty bad. He's been coughing almost all night and doesn't sleep well so she increased his lasix. He is at the highest doseage on all his meds. She said he is a little worse than the last time we brought him in but there is nothing more she can do for him, the increased lasix should make him a little more comfortable for awhile and buy him a little more time. She told us to take him home and just enjoy him while we still have him with us. It is so hard knowing we are losing him but we are trying to make his last days as happy as possible. He loves the dog park so I've been taking him there almost every day. He doesn't mind riding in the stroller but of course he'd much rather be walking. I do let him out once during each visit so he can walk around and mark all the trees. And when it's hot he stands in the pond for a few minutes. We are doing all we can to keep him alive as long as possible, he is so very much loved.
