I lost an amazing companion. He walked on 4 legs, had a fur coat the color of honey, gave incredible hugs and kisses, knew how to comfort me, was the best listener anyone could ask for, a great hiking buddy, encouraged me when I needed a boost, was with me for so many successes and even a few failures and was forever patient each and every day. He was the finest trail ambassador and greeted every person he met with a hello by gently leaning into them to share some love. He took time exploring his surroundings and knew all the routes we took by heart…or smell. He was not afraid of the vacuum, loved to eat whatever I prepared for him, was a good student at “his” school and charmed anyone who saw his handsome, sweet face. I said goodbye to my lovable Golden Retriever, Toby. He lived an incredible life filled with lots of love and was loved by those that knew him near and far.
A donation was made in Toby's memory and the memorial was created on December 4, 2019.
