It has been awhile since I have been able to write a lot on here. Life has been a little rough. We lost our angel of a dog, Toby. It was very unexpected as he had a lung lobe torsion which came quickly out of nowhere. He was about to go into surgery, but he went into cardiac arrest before they could do anything. They were unable to revive him. It was, and still is, such a shocking and terrible feeling. My fiancé is deployed so that has made it even harder. He couldn’t be there to say goodbye.
Toby was our first dog together. He was a rescue from a local shelter. He was extremely abused by his previous owner and needed a lot of help. He had come such a long way. It is terrible he is gone. He deserved to live so much longer. Our other dog, Scrappy, has been very depressed. He misses his brother. We know it’ll never get easier to miss him; we have lost so many pets over the years. We can’t wait until we see our Toby again.
Toby really was an angel. Everyone knew that. Now Toby is up there giving us this beautiful sky tonight. We know he is looking down on us!
Please honor Toby by spreading awareness about lung lobe torsions and animal abuse. Although the torsion is rare, someone can be saved from knowing what it is.
We love you, Toby!
