Toby is doing so much better thank you everyone for your prayers!!!! He is still growing his hair back but he doesnt have one single sore!!! It is probably going to go away since he is almost 12 months old, and his immune system will be fully developed. So everything is looking great. (Except our bank account, lol!!) Anyways,

Barks and Kisses, Toby

and Thanks, Lyndsey

Hi my name is Toby and I just turned 8 months old on the third of Nov. And every since my mommy got me when I was 12 weeks old, we have been inseperable. She loves me so much and I love her so much too. Sometimes I see her cry when she looks at me though and I think I know why. Every since I was about 16 weeks old I have had major problems... I started of with my skin being so itchy and then I got bald patches so my mommy took me to see the vet, Dr. Ricconi. He told my mommy that I had scabies, and I had to get 2 shots, they really hurt!! Then about a week later my skin wasnt so itchy and I was getting better. But then all the sudden it came back ten times worse, I couldnt stop itching for two seconds. So mommy took me back to see the good Doctor. He said I had a hereditary disease called Red (Demo) Mange and a secondary staph infection!! Needless to say I felt horrible, all I did was sleeop for a few days, but then I started feeling better. But then it started to come back, we treated my skin over and over again, dip after dip. And then one day after I hadnt been using the bathroom for a few days mommy was worried about me so she started watching me like a hawk. Then I finally had to go potty and when I did, we were all scared, my stool was all bloody. Mom started rapping me up in a blanky and crying, then we rushed to see the Doc. He didnt know what was wrong so he had to make me stay there for 2 and a half days, it really sucked!!!! They wanted to get a sample of my poo, but no I was determined not to give them any. So thats when my mommy got me back. It was hard to hold my poo in for 2 days so as soon as I got out of the car I was in the yard for about 20minutes potting! I felt much better. Mommy was happy that it wasnt bloody, but she wasnt happy she had to pick some up and take it to the vet, yuck!! But anyways we didnt hear much about that. But that was about 2 weeks ago, and during that time I still had the mange and its still going away now. But anyways then earlier this week on monday mommy had to take me in for a check up on my skin and laterly my eyes got all foggy and rough, so I had to go in for that too. The Doc says my skin is healing nicely but I have hot spots now and my eyes have something wrong with them, and I cant remember what its called but he says its like having ulcers in my eyes so it hurts really bad. But I have been getting so much better with the ointment for my eyes and Doc says putting corn starch on my hot spots will make them go away. So Im doing so much better and I want to ask you all to pray for me and I know Gods gonna get me through this rough spot!!!!!!!!


He's Home!!!!

Today Toby finally got to come home. After a big scare we had to deal with on Wednesday night. He is finally back tonight after being there two and a half days, they went ahead and sent him home because they needed a stool sample and he was determined not to use the bathroom there, which is why they had to keep him so long in the first place. They needed it because on wednesday he had a bloody stool, so they wanted to test it and see why he is staying so infected and sick, so hopefully the sample I had to collect and take up there will shed some light on this situation. But just to let u all know he is so happy to be home, as soon as he seen me he weed all over the floor. He hated staying in that place, and I hated that he had to stay there to but most importantly he is home and happy and looking a little bit better.

PS: Thanks for the prayers!!!


My Baby is so sick, pray for him, please!!

Hi everyone this message is comin straight from Toby's mommy. Every since about the middle of August, Toby has,, in simple words been a very sick little boy. In late August this whole story starts out with Toby starting to scratch a lot. He started to scratch so much after about a week or two it was getting pretty serious because he was starting to loss hair on his stomach, and he was covered in sores. So we called the vet and brought him in, so the vet tells us your puppy is very sick, he has scabies and a serious staph infection, when this came throught my ears- you better believe I wanted to break down a cry but I held it in, and the vet explained that if I was very serious about treating him he would be okay. So after 14 days of taking antibiotics twice a day, he began to look like he was getting better. So about three days to a week after the antibiotics were gone he got more sores and they spread farther up to his back, so here we go again, he was sick. We took him up to the vet again, he takes a skin scraping and looks at it then tells me the scabies are gone, but he has a red mange (which is hereditery) and a secondary staph infection. So needless to say things were getting worse, and he was getting weak. But as I see it I AM his REAL mommy, so I spoiled him even more and gave him his medicine, and this second thing happened in mid october till early november. And finally now he is fighting his fourth battle with a serious skin problem and his third with reoccurences of red mange. Now it is at a point where sometimes when I look at him I want to cry, like I am now as I type this, he has no hair around his eyes and nose, because the skin is infected around them, and his belly and back are torn with so many sores. Then when I get home from school today I take my baby out to use the bathroom, and theres blood in his stool, and I cover my mouth and try to hold back the tears, while my stomach drops. Its hits me in this moment more than every how sick my baby is, I pick him up and rush in telling my sister that weve got to rush him to the vet, and at the vet is where he sleeps tonight. He told me that he probably busted a blood vein in his colon, I just hope hes right. I hate that hes in that cold place alone. I know that he will make it, because I know my God will heal him with my prayers and yours. I notice this about him, he weights 9 lbs., hes 7 months old, and all the things hes been through, I dont think an adult 9o lbs dog could make it through what hes been throught, its so ironic how strong he is because of his size. All I know is im not ready to loose him and he is so strong I know God is gonna bring him through this, and he will be happier than hes ever been.

Thank you for you prayers, Lyndsey and Toby ( my lil Soulja Boi)

She says I smelt like a dead animal, and no wonder I lived in a tiny bathroom all alone, since I was the last 2 go to a home. My mom had to drive a long way 2 get me, but im so glad she did. Or else who knows how long I would have lived in that bathroom??!! Anyways I got 2 go and play with my ball!!
