Saying goodbye is tough
Thank you for all your lovely messages of support and kind words since the passing of my beautiful Toby. It has been comforting to know that so many others understand the enormity of my sadness and sharing stories and photos with you all has definitely helped me through these lonely months.
When Toby died, I lost my best friend, my loyal companion and a little piece of my heart forever. He was an extension of myself and involved in every aspect of my life- relationships, work, travel, the birth of my daughter and so much more. I think back to all the incredible adventures we had together and now it feels like a fairytale.
It’s not easy letting go and Toby’s passing marks the end of an era in my life and the commencement of a new one in which I now live without him by my side. It is sometimes hard to imagine that I will ever be as happy as I was when Toby was around. He made me smile every single day of my life and that is a remarkable skill unique to our pets- no judgement, no bad moods- just always happy to see us.
Toby’s death and the deep sadness that has followed have connected me via Facebook with a strong community of like minded pet people who love their pets deeply and who understand what it is like to lose them.
The love we give our pets does not end when their life does- they are part of us forever. I will continue to nurture Toby's Facebook page as a way to celebrate his life and those of all beloved pets -past and present. Please continue to share your experiences, post your photos and help honour the lives of our special fur-kids.
And , To My Darling Toby –my soul mate-there really are no words to say how much I love and miss you. What I wouldn’t give for just one more pat, one more game of Kong or to see the sea breeze blow in your magnificent hair. I hope you and Milly are up to your old mischief together at Rainbow Bridge, running amuck and entertaining the crowds. Your shining light will never be extinguished from my heart xx
