So very sorry to hear you have lost your dear Toby. I lost both my beloved goldens in October so like many here, I do understand the pain and loss you are suffering.
Please try to console yourself with the knowledge that you did the right thing for him - when we can't help them anymore, we need to be strong enough to let them go.

Be kind to yourself. Thinking of you,
Lyn

RIP - Toby

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

When tomorrow starts
without me,
and I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise
and find your eyes,
all filled with tears for me,

I wish so much you wouldn't cry,
though I know your heart aches so
But remember it was
for the best...
It was my time to go.

I know how much you love me...
As much as I love you.
And each time you're
thinking of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts
without me,
don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here in your heart.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Toby. The losses of our loved ones hurt so bad and our prayers go out to you and your family. Take all the time you need to grieve for Toby and focus on the wonderful memories that you had together. He will always be with you.

Rest in Peace dear Toby and Godspeed. You have many Golden friends now waiting to take care of you now at the Bridge.

So sorry for your loss of sweet Toby.

In June 2011 I lost my 15 year old dog and 18 year old cat just ten days apart. The world stopped for me and the pain was unbearable. The house seemed cold and empty. I felt like I was living through a bad dream that just wouldn't end.

Eventually, the pain of living without a pet was too strong to ignore. We opened our hearts to a rescue golden. He brought life and fun back into our house again. He hasn't replaced my girls, but he has helped me move forward.

Grief is different for everyone. Take your time, cry, laugh, talk about Toby and most of all, be kind to yourself. You have found lots of people on this forum who understand.

wishing you peace,
brianne

So sorry for your loss of Toby, so hard to lose them. I hope that one day you will feel that you are able to open your heart to another furred one, never to replace Toby but they do help in their own way.

Sleep softly at the Bridge Toby

I miss the plaintive pleading wail,
I miss the wistful loving glance,
I miss the circling welcome dance"

Should I be mad?

After blood tests at my local vet,he told me take Toby in right now to a big dog hospital,several miles away. After some tests,they had suggested it was his time to go. I held him as he passed,it was awful. Did I want to take his body?No,, Did I want him cremated? Yes.Did I want his ashes? Yes.. The bill came to $642. I paid $400 of it that night.They had no trouble asking when they would receive the rest.I did say next week...
They told me it might take a little longer for me to receive the ashes because of Christmas..Ok,what could I do or say?? Two weeks go by,I hear nothing but do get a bill for the $242. Bill says I have 30 days to pay. Today,one day short of 3 weeks,I call to see where ashes are.I am told over phone that my Toby has not been cremated,because I owe them money.30 minutes after phone call,I was at Pet hospital paying bill in full. At no time was I told that dog wouldn't be cremated till bill was paid.. I'm sick thinking he has just been lying somewhere in that building. I have been crying for almost 3 weeks missing my baby boy,this has started a whole new wave of pain.
Am I wrong?Or should I be upset with hospital and policy?
