On July 14th I received a call from my mother saying that my beloved pet Toby had passed. We’ve had Toby since 2011. He was an English Bulldog that brought so much joy and laughter into our lives. I’ve never been as close to a pet as I had been with Toby. He had the personality of a human. He loved english food (ironically), and loved his naps. He loved taking trips to McDonald’s for a burger treat once in awhile, and loved cuddles.
About a year ago, our dog Tiffany had died, and Toby viewed her as a mother. When she passed, his heart was broken and his health has been steadily declining. He had a heart attack on the 14th. It happened very quickly and suddenly, which is one thing I can be thankful for. He was not suffering for very long when he died.
It’s still hard to comprehend that he’s gone. I don’t think I’ll fully understand it for quite some time.
RIP my baby boy. I love you so much. You’re with your mama now.
