    Of Course Toby Is a Loving Dog

    Toby is a loving dog because that how dogs are. He know that he was brought into a new family that is going to give him love and a good life. Dogs show gratitude and love especially after a rescue like this.

    God Bless Toby and his new family!

    Dear Toby,

    You are a beautiful dog. I don't understand humans who abuse animals and have no patience for them. Such humans are the lowest life forms of all creation in the Universe.

    My view is we humans are entrusted with the sacred task of Caretakers of Planet Earth -- responsible all of her living beings which includes Fauna, Flora, Aquatic, Amphibian, Insecta and every other species of life who calls our wonderful Blue Planet "home".

    Congratulations on being chosen Dog of the Day. Live long, healthy and happy with your new family. They are my kind of people!

    We miss having a dog companion but due to my husband's allergy to dogs which he developed when we had two lovely dogs many years ago named Bobby and Chuck. We knew that when our darlings had lived out their natural life span that we would not bring home a dog as my husband's allergy is severe.

    When we had our beloved beagle, Bobby and terrior, Chuck, Pussycats were a part of our family. Lucky for us, my husband is not allergic to cats. So we have three lovelies : Felix who is a gorgeous Maine Coon; Rascal who is a beautiful tabby, grey/silver with some white accents; and our baby boy, Raven who was born on my hand.

    Our kitties, like you, are rescued Treasures.

    Raven's mother, Ivory came to me, pregnant, frightened and all alone on city streets. I took her in and that very first week, she presented us with two little black kittens whom we named Raven and Licorice. Ivory and Licorice are in good homes and I visit them in their forever homes which is lovely.

    Dear Toby, Mr. Spock of Star Trek always said "Live long and prosper" -- loved and cherished for all of your days. That is our wish for you.

    Brave, beautiful Toby!

    Oh Toby, beautiful boy...I, like those before me, are heartbroken and sickened to hear of the unspeakable, horrific abuse you suffered at the hand, and foot, of your previous..."owner."

    What a brave boy you were, Toby, hanging on until your rescuers, your forever family, could free you from your living hell. It is truly a testament to the amazing, indomitable, unbreakable spirit of the canine that despite such abuse you were able to learn to love and trust another human! And what makes your story so extra special is that your forever human needed you as much as you needed her/him! With one simple act of selfless kindness two hearts were healed, an unbreakable bond of love and trust forged!

    And now, finally, you are living the happy, carefree, love filled life you so rightly deserve, a life any doggie would envy! (It's not every pup who can boast running about the bucolic English countryside, taking a dip in cool, blue lake as part of their daily routine! ) And judging by that HUGE smile on your face, those twinkling "blinky eyes" (photo #2"D), there's no doubt you're savoring each and every minute of your enchanted existence! I'm so very happy for you and your person that you found your way to one another, Toby! How very lucky you are to have a soul mate, a best friend for life in her/him, and she/he in you!

    Heartfelt thanks to your person for sharing your very moving, heartwarming and inspirational story with us, and oh, so many heart melting, life affirming pics! You truly are a survivor, Toby, the sweetest most loving and forgiving pup on the planet, and so very worthy of your Dog of the Day, every day, honors!
    Enjoy a happy and fun filled day of celebration, sweetheart! I just know your mum (or dad) is going to make it a very special one, for sure!
    Lots of love, hugs and kisses to you, brave, beautiful Toby!

    Star,Tigg'r , Mollie and the10 Gallon Gang!

    Toby the Terrific!

    Toby - first off, I want to say that I'm glad that your loving humans saved you from those sick abusive 'people' I wish that I could beat and kick them!
    You are a sweet boy, and have come a long way from your awful start. You are proof that dogs are sweet, loving creatures, even when treated with hate in the past...Toby, you are an awesome boy!
    May everyday be Dog of the Day for you, beautiful boy!

    Hey everyone, i'm Toby's owner, just wanted to say a huge thankyou to all the lovely comments, it really brought a tear to my eye to see how supportive nd caring people can be.

    Obviously now im showing all my friends and family the link to his dog of the day page ever so proud of him and he got extra big hugs when i found out.

    I smile everytime i think of him and how he's brightened up my life, he couldnt of come into my life at a better time and im sure the same applies for him.

    He's currently curled up snoring his head off after eating his dinner :3

    Thanks again and have a lovely day
