I know some of you have seen my signature and know that my Toby passed away. Since you all shared with me the adventure of getting him from the Kings and saw him grow through pictures, I wanted to let you all know.
Toby passed away this past Sunday at about 4:30 AM. It appears to have been a Seizure and it all happened very quickly. There was no time for anything.
I have many loving memories of my Toby, he was a ray of sunshine in our lives and had the most even temperament a dog owner can ask for. We feel blessed to have been able to share his life for a while.
Toby was already 2.6 years and was mostly silver by now. I had just given him a summer cut (myself) and although I never liked short hair on Havies, I thought he looked gorgeous.
Here are some pics that I know you’ll all enjoy, the ones with short hair are the last pictures I took of him and the one of him sleeping with me and Bumi was a week before he passed. That is how he spent his weekends.
This is a poem that I got yesterday from the Vet that received us at the emergency clinic last Sunday. She sent me a beautiful card along with it.
I Am Not There
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you waken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
