toby…you are the best boy

Last night we said goodbye. We took several hours at home, and I stayed with him at the hospital. The moment was more gentle and peaceful than I could have imagined, but the grief is more profound. I will write more later, but I can’t just now. Please hold all of us, but especially Steve and Alex, in your thoughts. I know he was just a dog, but he was the best dog.

    Oh Kim, I gasped out loud when I saw the FB post. I’m so very sorry for your loss. We’ve been through it, too. Wishing you all peace and comfort.

    There is no such thing as “just a dog.”

    Please forgive my lateness. I’ve been tying up class presentations and just sat down to catch up with my reading. While I knew this day was coming, I was still deeply saddened to read this entry. So many memories are flooding back into my mind. The depth of feeling I have for you now cannot be put into words.
