My Toby passed away

It has been so hard, my darling Toby died while having a seizure on Dec 1, 2016, the day before my only grandchild was born (a wonderful granddaughter). I haven't gotten any dog since, and I miss the companionship-but my health is such that I will have to get a smaller dog.

  • I am so sorry to hear about Toby.  I too have gone smaller after losing a larger.  Thoughts and prayers for you, it is never easy losing our pups.

  • Oh Mary, I am so very sorry for your loss. Our pets bring us so much joy and comfort. I hope and pray you will find just the dog to be your companion. In the meantime enjoy your sweet granddaughter. 

  • I am so sorry about Toby.  Having had both smaller and larger dogs, I can tell you smaller is a good option - and a great choice when that is what you must do for health reasons.  We have gone smaller as we have aged.  I feel that our 28-29 pound doodle is still large enough to satisfy my need for a dog, but small enough that I can pick him up when needed. I can't quite commit to a dog smaller than 25 pounds yet - but if my option was go smaller or go dogless, I'd go smaller.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. 

  • I am so sorry about Toby! A house does seem very empty without a dog!
