Dear Toby "Tobias" Jean,

Ever since the first day I met you, I knew you were a special guy. After what your previous owner put you through, the pain you were in, and a big bullet hole in your face, it didn't take any time at all for your mother and I to fall in love with you. As you healed up and we fought for your life in court, you proved that unconditional love is still possible. Even when you were fight against cancer, you never gave up on us. You kept playing with your toys, popping your balls (which by the way are still in the yard waiting for you), you fought to stay alive so you could give us happiness. And you did just that. You brought so much love and happiness to our lives. I only wish you could have stayed here with us longer. You will never be forgotten, You will always be missed. Say hi to Meisha for us and keep Spanky out of trouble. We love you Tobias.
