Tobybear playing peek a boo isn't he cute?

My pride and joy, he has saved my life.

When I saved Toby from a person who had a puppy mill situation going on, I thought I was just finding a pet to care for and love. But he has turned out to be so much more than that. As you can see from my photos, he not only makes me laugh (pic. 1), he also begs for my love and attention (pic 2). I have struggled with depression for quite some time now and Toby has been my reason to get out of bed everyday. He has not only been my pride and joy but he also loves me unconditionally and helps keep me on my feet when I need it most. This dog is amazing!!
