My beautiful bear. 20 amazing years you gave me. There will not be a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. Here is to the millions of memories we created together and our very special bond. Thank you for staying by my side when I was sick, thank you for waiting for me on the drive after a long day at school, thank you for the camping, the snuggles, the games, thank you for being my best friend.
Most of all I’m eternally grateful for how you taught me a love that knows no bounds.
How you showed great courage, the willingness to act in spite of fear.
Your ability to show forgiveness and grace to someone who may not have deserved it.
How you ask for so little but deserved so much.
How you taught me to be excited and grateful everytime a loved one comes through the door.
To be so appreciative even when someone just gives you a treat.
Being thankful for just the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face.
To have fun everyday.
Allowing people to love you.
Showing that if you want something, DIG HARD until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, to be silent and sit close by.
And lastly the thank you for teaching me how to be a great friend.
They say nobody is perfect, but you truly are boyo. I will carry you with me for the rest of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better friend, we have shared our journey until the very end. Go ahead boy, find the way, then lead me back to you on my last day.
I love you forever and always my gorgeous, beautiful, brave Toby. Love, eternally, Jessie xxxxxxxxx
