I haven't posted in the past 3 weeks, because I just did not have the heart to take Toby's picture down from the blog. He gaves us unlimited memories of joy, loyalty and adventure. He helped me raise children, was my protector and performer of great tricks. He cooperated to the end, waiting to take his turn toward his final breath after all were able to come home and enjoy one last great family evening. He was truly a gift from God and all the good he brought us will forever be in our hearts.
