Sad but heartwarming story... Toby is a young Cocker Spaniel + Poodle mix who lost his leg as it was shattered beyond repair when Toby was hit by a car. Toby was our foster and we found a wonderful home for him...
Toby's mom has trained him as a therapy dog and they visit our local Children's Hospital as well as working with the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
His mom recounted that during a recent trip to Chidren's Hospital, a little girl who had also lost her leg asked, "Does Toby cry at night because he lost this leg?" Toby's mom answered, "Toby used to cry but he is adjusted now. See how happy he is!" The little girl pondered that and then replied, "I guess that I won't cry anymore either."
WOW! the power of a dog!
