Toby







About a year before I got married I bought my parents a Lhasa Apso puppy. Yesterday morning, their faithul companion of 17 years had to be put to sleep. Toby's hearing and eyesight had been deteriorating for the last couple of years and he had arthritis making it very difficult to get around. A couple of days ago he stopped eating. My parents were told he had a stomach tumor and that at this point the most humane things to do was to put him to sleep. My father held him until the end (my mother couldn't and waited outside).

Oh I'm so sorry for your loss. I could only imagine the pain they felt. I am a great big dog lover. I have a 2 year old Shih Tzu named Paris.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I experience something similar with my best dogfriend 10 years ago and I still miss him so much.
