      Vale my darling boy, Toby, 25/12/2007 - 27/11/2015

      My beautiful Lab boy, Toby, lost his battle with this insidious disease (Systemic Histiocytosis) and was put to sleep at our home on Friday 27th November.

      Here is the link to the thread on his health battles in 2015: My poor rescue boy Toby has had more than his fair share of bad luck

      Since he was diagnosed with Systemic Histiocytosis he was undergoing Chemo treatment and after a rapid deterioration in his condition a couple of weeks after I posted the above thread in September, he finally started responding positively to the chemo treatment and was doing well. Then about a week ago he started going downhill and I knew the disease was progressing and this was confirmed at his Oncology consult on Wed 25th Nov. I made arrangements with our Vet for a home visit to PTS on Monday 30th November hoping he would have some quality time until then, but unfortunately it was not to be and I had to bring forward the PTS home visit to Friday 27th Nov. I am extremely grateful to our Vet for coming around within 15minutes of me ringing them as they are just up the road as I was very concerned with how quickly he was deteriorating and did not want to prolong any suffering.

      His passing was very peaceful as I lovingly held him on his bed in our bedroom, which was one of his favourite places in our home. I let Tana come in to say goodbye to him after he had passed so that Tana would know he had gone as I had done this with him when his senior buddies, Thomas and Tournie went on their journeys to the Bridge.

      I am just devastated by what happened to this beautiful boy and extremely saddened that he did not get to live a long life. I am grateful that I did get to spend a lot of time with Toby as I was working from home when I adopted him and then retired so was able to spend a lot of quality time with him with lots of outings and to also give him the opportunity to live the life of a very pampered pooch. I was very bonded with him and he was extremely devoted to me, such a beautiful, loving and very affectionate boy who I just adored. I miss him very very much and have cried a river of tears since his passing and no doubt will be grieving his loss for a long time to come. Tana has been very quiet since Toby has passed, so I know he is missing him as well, so have been making an extra effort to get Tana out of the house on outings a couple of times a day to help lift both of our broken spirits.

      Run free at the Bridge Toby with my other beloved Labbies where I am sure you are fetching all those balls and toys that you so loved doing. I love you very dearly, miss you so much it hurts and will never ever forget you sweetheart. I am so heartbroken that you had to battle the health problems that you did, cutting your life short and denying you the chance to live a long life. Till we meet again darling boy.

      Tears are flowing. I'm so sorry for your loss. Toby was lucky to have someone like you to care for him and help him when he needed relief from pain and suffering.

      Hugs to you. May the many sweet memories he gave you help lessen the grief.

      Rest In Peace Sweet Toby

      I'm so sorry. But thank heavens Toby will be so missed, it means he was loved. Imagine if his path had never crossed yours. If only your path together could have been longer. So sorry.
