My Dearest Little Partner Toby

by Carmel

Oh my Toby, where have you gone. I can not believe I will never see your lovely little face again, your thoughtful eyes and knowing look. Last Monday you went to sleep in my arms.

I was so privileged to have known you and have had you in my life. I will always carry you in my heart. You came into my life as a dear little puppy, the biggest and sturdiest of the litter. Home you came with me and slept in my bed under the covers. I was worried you were missing your mum.

Next day you met Sean and then Sophie. you were like my little partner. When they were arguing and shouting, you would jump up and bark and bark until they stopped. You saw me through my bad times of adjusting to being on my own as a single mum.

Oh so many people do not know what they are missing in not having a true little friend so much nicer than so many people, loyal, genuine and true. I loved you, Toby, like nothing or nobody else. Thanks for all the lovely times and for bringing deep meaning into my life.
