Thanks from Toby

Its been a few weeks since we laid our Toby to rest. He was such a beautiful dog that I wanted him to be the focal point on the card so all I added was just a simple linen thread bow and some brads to embellish. I gave this card to our vets, Dr. Harris and Dr. Kerns at Midshore Veterinary Service, to thank them for their friendship, care and support over the last seven years.  Toby was so protective of me each time we went to the vet’s and would sometimes growl at the staff that I often had to leave the exam room so they could work with him. But they always came out with a smile saying what a great and loyal dog he was to me. One of the things my husband will miss as Spring rolls around is his golf ball chaser. Toby loved to go over to the field with him while he practiced his swing and would bring back his balls for him. We keep looking to see him everywhere in the house as he was constantly under foot and following us from room to room. I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I tripped over him, especially getting out of the bed in the middle of the night. We never knew which side he was going to sleep on as it seemed he rotated sides torn between having to make the decision between the two of us. He was a extremely faithful and we love and miss him dearly.

  4. What a thoughtful idea to give the vets your beautiful cards! I know that you will miss him. We are constantly tripping over Mickey these days, it seems. Your loving tribute is beautifully worded. We mourn pets just as we do human loved ones. You were lucky to have him in your life.
