I am sorry to hear that Lowbubba. I can still picture those two at home in your camper!

Turbs,

I've heard it all my life that dogs are a good judge of people.

Our Fred (who was given 2 days to live 4 years ago this Jan. 4th by LSU vets)
has always loved people and never met a stranger...until
Thanksgiving while we camped in Hot Springs. There was a guy there he took an instant dislike to which shocked us. I still wonder about that guy.

Imagine a Doxy with an Irish Setter coat and that's our Fred. DH says he's a 4 legged endorsement for Valium. We're told he's half Doxy and Half.....Poodle???? LOL

Oh, and the deaf one, Chelsea, is a Cocker.

You mentioned how Toby made sure he never got left behind when y'all headed out camping;
Fred *knows* what's up when I start loading the RV and gets more and more excited as the day goes on.
The other day we took the RV in for warranty work (so there was no load up) and put the Fids inside while we hooked up, since we leave the double privacy fence gates open while doing that.
Once we hooked up and pulled the RV into the drive we let 'em out one last time before leaving for the day.
Fred freaked out! He *ran* to where the RV sits, then hauled butt to the crack between the gates he uses to look outside. Then hauled it back inside and ran for the garage door.
Oh, and Fred smiles, *and* laughs. He was doing both, thinking he's about to get to go camping again!

Yes, our dogs become family don't they? When and if you decide to bring another dog into your family's life that'll be one *very* lucky dog.

Hold on to your memories with Toby and keep your heart open to the idea of giving another Fid the awesome life you gave Toby.

Sorry for your loss, they become such a close member of the family and we miss them so much when they go, we had to do this in August and I still miss her.

We have had many pets over the years. Each one, large or small, had its own unique and special personality. There is no such thing as "just a dog" or "just a ferret", etc. When they have to leave us they are remembered as true individuals that carried their soul in their eyes, and shared their love with us. We hope that we will be together again at the end of our stories.
