Goodbye.

I had to say goodbye to my sweet Toby today. He was my shadow for 15 years, a heartbeat at my feet while I rocked babies to sleep, a snoring companion while I waited for kids to come home late at night. Toby, I hope that heaven is a place where you can chase the Goldens with boundless energy, and that there are more bars of soap than even you could possibly eat. I love you, Buddy.

Ohhhh, Nickie. I'm so very sorry to hear that your sweet Toby is now one of God's newest furry angels. I'm sending a HUGE, comforting hug your way - words just can't convey my deepest sympathy for the loss of your furry friend and companion. Loving hugs, Terri

Saying goodbye to our beloved furry family members is just heartbreaking. I know that the place you describe in your post is where your dear Toby runs and plays without the ailments he may have endured in his later years. That place is the Rainbow Bridge and our Golden Daisy is there frolicking with Toby now.

Hi Nickie,

My heartfelt condolences on the passing of your sweet little Toby! I know you are sad right now but think of all the wonderful memories you have of him these past15 years! I am sure he is very happy in Doggie Heaven and is having loads of fun with the other furry angels.
Sending healing hugs,

I just read this post today. I hope by now you are feeling a little less sad, but I know you are still missing your baby. I've lost a few in my time, and each time the grief is overwhelming. Such sweet souls - of course we miss them. I'm sorry for your loss.
