Little Tote

by Mum
(Melbourne, Victoria, Australia)

My little guy Toto, everyone knows we are inseparable. All four of you guys are our beloved dogs, but Totey was and always will be my baby. In this tiny "baby corgi" body came an enormous shift after I found you standing in the middle of the road. I learnt you were in dangerous surrounds, and home we went.

Little Totey, I was never apart from you for more than a couple of hours. I would fret for you as I knew you needed to know I was there. And I also had that insecurity of not feeling right without you being right there beside me.

Even our American Staffy respected you were the number one, all were in respect of you, my little tiny boy.

Not a nasty bone in your body, and a joyful, thoughtful and peaceful boy like you gave me warmth of knowing you were always there. To be with each other gave us a beautiful joy and peace. Together we were a team.

I love you Tote.
