My good boy Toby
Toby and his then companion Napoleon were surrendered to a shelter by their owners who were moving and didn't take them with them (an inconceivable thing to me); a virus was raging in the shelter and a worker contacted Schnauzer Rescue of Pittsburgh,Pa. a rescue angel got him and fostered him for two (2) years; we found him on the rescue site and took him the first time we ever saw him;
we took him home and gave him all the love we had; Toby and i went for a walk (or two or three) everyday on a school near us 53 acres; he became a friend to all the grounds people who worked there;
after several veterinarian visits that revealed noting pathological, other than the veterinarians firm belief that he was dying;
on friday January 24th @10:45 PM EST he quietly passed away with the people who loved him best nearby;
"we'll go no more a roaming"
