Arrival Story:
I found my Toby through a breeder on the internet. I almost didn't get him because he was promised to someone else. They didn't show up so lucky for me I got him. He was right around the corner in my own neighborhood. Who would have thought after surfing the internet, that I'd find him right in my own community. It must have been fate!!!

Toby is a huge Walker, Texas Ranger fan. He will watch the re-runs over and over and gets very excited when he sees Chuck Norris, horses or any fighting. He recognizes the theme song from another room and comes running when he hears it. I'm not's the truth!!!!!! LOL!!!

This morning Daddy came in the bedroom to wake Mommy up for work. I was sleeping with Mommy like I always do. Daddy flicked on the light and both Mommy and I put our hands/paws over our eyes at the same time...............Daddy started laughing hysterically at I had no idea what I was doing or some such nonsense.......Mommy had a chuckle over it too and they picked me up and kissed and loved me and told me I was just the cutest thing ever!! Humans..............go figure............hee hee!!


Max's Death

We had to put Max to sleep on Feb. 7th this year. He came down with pneumonia and it got the best of him. It was a very freaky thing to happen to a 3 year old dog. We are all very saddened and miss him terribly.
Toby had noticed Max's decline in health over those last two weeks before that dreadful day and he knew something was wrong with his big brother.
After the gut wrenching and heartbreaking day at the Vet's we brought Max home in a little cardboard coffin to lay him to rest in our backyard. I let Toby see Max and sniff him. This was recommended by our Vet. We buried Max out under the tree where he used to stand guard on squirrel patrol.
A few weeks later the cleaning lady (who is also my friend) came to clean. She had not been there since Max was buried. Toby kept barking at her and running up and down the hallway like he was trying to tell her something. She said she he had never acted like this before. After she got done cleaning she let Toby out in the backyard to go potty. He immediately ran to where Max was buried and stood over his grave barking and looking at my friend as if to say, "Look, here is Max!!!!"
So if you ever question whether an animal knows about death or not.......I believe they do. Toby knows that is where Max is now......


Toby and Pork BBQ ribs

Last night we had pork BBQ ribs for dinner and Toby wanted some sooooo bad. We cleaned all the dishes off, scraping the bones into the trash can (a tall kitchen trash can about 2-3 feet high). He proceeded to sit there next to the trash can barking at it and looking at me. I told him "NO" and went about my business. Some time later, I noticed he hadn't been under my feet as usual and asked hubby if he had seen him. Hubby had not, so I was getting ready to go find the human boys in the basement and see if Toby had followed them downstairs. All of a sudden, hubby yells for me to come quick into the kitchen. I ran down the hall way and into the kitchen. Hubby was pearing into the trash can with a huge smile on his face. There was Toby, at the bottom of the trashcan, with BBQ sauce all over his face and paws. He was looking sheepishly up at us and didn't blink an eye. I think he even stopped breathing for a minute. It was so priceless to see this bitty little white fluffy dog with BBQ sauce literally all over him and sitting at the bottom of the trash can totally enjoying himself. I don't know how he got into the trashcan without tipping it over. ( He is only about 7 inches high from the ground himself.) I took a picture, I hope it turns out!! Check out the 3rd picture down!!!
