I am glad little Sonny is helping in healing your heart. I looked at his pictures, he is so sweet and loving. Those we lost we will never forget. Hugs

We, too, are grieving the recent loss of our best friend, Kodiak. My wife won't hear of getting another dog ... yet. I hope and pray she changes her mind soon.

So pleased that you have found the strength to let another golden share your life, no he will never replace Toby in your heart, but he will find his own special place in there. As for him not knowing he is helping you to heal - I believe that they are far wiser than we often give them credit for

Congrats on your new puppy. Sonny is amazingly cute

Many of us have been through the 'I could never love another dog like I loved (xxxx)". The truth is we do. When our first golden rescue, Buddy, died at 15, we were crushed and said the same thing. It wasn't but a week until a stray showed up on our side porch needing care and a furever home. We fostered him for a few months, I trained him, and today, 10 years later, he lives with a wonderful family on 100 acres with two ponds, his own backpack for trail rides, and has had a wonderful life. Helping him helped us even more.

No dog we've ever adopted has replaced another. They've all been different with different personalities. And we've loved them all equally.

So sorry for all you went through with Toby, he sure looked like a very special boy. Your new buddy Sonny is adorable and I'm glad he is helping you. We lost our golden Daisy a year ago, and it took us a while but a month ago we got Sammy. The ones we have lost will always be in our hearts and their spirits will live on forever.

Toby RIP

My Toby will always always hold a very special piece of my heart.I still miss him everyday.The new guy,little Sonny has made me smile and laugh,more than a few times.He seems to really enjoy playing with Tobs old toys.He got hold of one of those squeaky toys,when I heard it,it reminded me that I hadn't heard it in awhile. I smiled a little,laughed,then had a good cry ,out of nowhere.. I know Toby is up on the Bridge,making friends and everyone is loving him,but I still miss him everyday.. Tobs...If you can see it,this lil smileys guys for you.I'll always love you baby boy...

I'm so sorry for what you went through at the Clinic-I would file a formal complaint.

Congratulations on little Sonny, he's so adorable. I hope he helps your heart heal and brings you many years of joy and love.

Each dog is very unique and special, you can never replace one with another. The love and memories you shared with Toby will be with you forever and he'll be watching over you. You will make new memories with little Sonny. I'm happy you have chosen to open your heart and home to your new boy.

2012 and The Bridge

Got a notice in my email from forum,about the 2012 bridge list.I don't come to visit as often as I should,because I seem to always leave in tears,I got the sniffles now as I type this. My Best boy,Toby will be gone a year this December.I still miss him alot. I'll see something that reminds me of him and end up feeling sad for abit...Halloween was tough.My girlfriend always dressed him up,she did a great job,and all the kids would come by and have their picture taken with him.. We recently celebrated our new guy Sonny"s first birth day..Hes been great,healthy and happy everyday,a true blessing..Every once in awhile I'll look at him and get reminded of The Tobs,but Sonny is his own boy,he has his own way of doing things..I cant believe a year has gone by so fast.

Thinking of you as it's coming up to Toby's anniversary. It's almost 2 years since we lost our golden girl, so know how you're feeling I'm so glad that you have Sonny to help heal your heart. Toby will be in your heart and memories forever.
