Lost my Toby 2/25/15

I'm beyond heartbroken...I lost my black German Shepherd Toby this past Wednesday. He was almost 12 1/2 and I've had him since he was 7 weeks old. He was my sweet, smart, handsome boy that was like my child. He was a huge part of our family...everyone seems lost without him. He had a personality like no other and the minute anyone met him, they fell instantly in love.I didn't know how much I could love an animal until I first laid eyes on Toby at 7 weeks old. I don't know how to handle this grief. ???

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. He looks like a beautiful boy. Ollie is my first dog, I've never had to deal with a loss like yours. Just hang in there, the pain will ease.

I'm so sorry for your loss and as time goes on it will get easier but if you are anything like me when it comes to my animals, I always think of them and i don't think i have ever not missed one of them. Sending prayers your way and its a comfort for me to know they may not physically be with me anymore but spiritually they will always be close to me

When one loses their precious pet, a part of their heart is taken also! Rest assured, your precious Toby will always have that piece of your heart for as long as you live. Prayers and hugs, and yes, time does lessen the hurt. Deb

I am sorry for your loss of Toby. The best thing you can do, is do not bottle up your feelings. Let it out and celebrate Toby's life with you.

Thank you all for your kind words. He went through everything with me. He would lick my face when I would cry...the unconditional love was just amazing. He taught me that no matter how I was, he loved me no matter what and same for him. They really are the most loyal dogs anyone could ever have...cherish every second.

So sorry for your loss. I hope coming her and talking about your beautiful boy helps you during this hard time. We all share the wonderful love for these dogs and no matter how much time we get with them, it's never enough.

The only real flaw I have found in my dogs is that their lives are inevitably too short. The price for the joy they bring me is the pain of their death.
I do get some solace in the thought that there's another dog out there who needs to move in - and it has always been the right dog.
May you find comfort in reflecting on the gifts your Toby brought you - the antics that caused laughter, the ones that caused frustration before they caused laughter, the comfort and joy he shared with you.
