Forever in our hearts~We miss you

Hi friends,
 This has been a very sad weekend for us. We lost our sweet little Toby on Saturday night. I've posted how he's had back issues but this time it was much more. We are so grateful he was part of our family for 15 and a half years! He brought so much joy and happiness to our lives. I can't stop crying, he was my shadow that I don't have following me around anymore. My husband and kids are handling his lost just as bad as me. When my husband and I came home from the animal hospital Saturday night my youngest, Victoria came running over to me crying and said "her heart was hurting", she loved him so much!
 
 You would always find him in the kitchen when I was cooking just hoping to get a little treat, and he always did!
 


 My sweet boy I know your in a better place free of pain and suffering, but we miss you!

Anne said...

my heart hurts for you Martina. Big hugs. I have to make the same decision this week... hate this part of owning a pet. The only thing getting me through is my belief that all pets are instantly reincarnated and so, she will be back to being a joyful new puppy with no aches, pains, or illness to slow her down or kill her joy.

At least I keep telling myself that...

What a cutie; I'm so sorry you lost him, Martina! I would cry at the drop of a hat when our first family dog died for a good two weeks. She shadowed me, too, and it was hard not to turn around and see her there.

Carolyn@Sweet Chaos said...

Oh Martina... I'm soooo sorry! You know I was just in this same situation in October, and it is such a deep loss and sadness. Someone said to me, "it feels like your heart has been ripped out of your chest," and that is exactly how I felt.

I'm praying for comfort for you and your family. Take comfort in knowing that Toby had a long, wonderful life with you. Hugs!!

Our Dearest Martina,

My heart goes out to you and your family. Losing a pet is so devastating especially when he was a "Shadow", but(if I can say "But"), he is no longer in pain.

My love of animals is great. I'm known as Snow White because of it. We have 1 dog, 3 cats and 2 birds.

I know your heart is full of great memories and remember how lucky you are to have had this little one in your lives.

Take care!!

Pam
