Toby was only 10 years old . He was a beautiful toy poodle.Really the light of my life.We still don't know what happened to him, generally it seems he had a blood disorder.He lost about 5 lbs. In only a few months,but never really acted ill until October 17 th, and by the 20 th. He had passed.What hurts the most is we couldn't be with our baby when he passed.We found out he was gone by phone.And that call has devastated our lives.My precious little boy is gone back to God .I wish I could have just one more day,to hold him and tell him I love him one more time,just one more day...

Beautiful Toby
by: Daine

I know you are heartbroken you didn't get to say goodbye, but I KNOW Toby knew he was loved, and I'm sure he will wait for you at the Rainbow Bridge. You had no way of knowing and in no way should feel bad, take comfort in knowing he loved you too. He will stay in your heart forever. I'm so sorry you have to go through this, it's the price we pay for loving so much. Take care of yourself, try to keep busy to keep your mind off of all the should haves, could haves, and know we all care. RIP beautiful Toby!

Roxanne I am so sorry for your loss of Toby. It is one of the painful aspects of grief when we don't get to be with our loved one or pet before they die. It is such a common fact of life that grief hurts more when we are absent. Toby may not have been able to know who was with him even if you were present. God would not have let him be alone. When my husband was dying of cancer and we didn't know it at that time A beautiful white pigeon landed on our fence and sat there like a beautiful angel. I then feared the worst. We got the worst news a week later that my husband had the worst terminal cancer from working with asbestos. I nursed him for 3yrs.39days, and that white pigeon stayed with us for 4yrs. My husband passed away 18 months ago and a few months later that bird comforted me before he disappeared forever. He was an angel. What bird would stay for 4 yrs. and visit almost daily and he would perch himself on the feeding table and not fly away. I would talk to him and tell him how much I loved him and he would listen and not fly away. That was an angel. God has his ways of comforting us. Know that Toby is Safe and free from pain. Don't stop giving your life to another pet. Keep your cycle of Love going. Keep a Toby journal and one for each future pet you get and let those memories comfort you.
