Like any Corgi, Toby was the absolute light of his family’s lives.
Although they had him for less than three years before losing him to cancer, today would have been Toby’s third birthday, and his people Johna and Peter simply can’t imagine not celebrating it.
“I wanted to finally share our struggle over the last month and take the opportunity to share Toby and his birthday with this wonderful group of people and pups” says Johna. “We’re taking pupcakes to Toby’s favorite place — a doggie daycare — to share with all the dogs there, which seemed a fitting tribute.”
“After fighting the good fight for several months, we helped our sweet boy to the Bridge on Wednesday May 8th, 2013. We have wept along with the other families in The Daily Corgi community who lost their Corgis recently, but just couldn’t reveal our own pain until now. It seems like much of what’s been going on lately involves the loss of our wonderful Corgis, but it’s so nice to have the community for support. And all the happier stories really warm the heart.”
Johna and Peter, thank you for sharing Toby and his birthday with us. Happy Birthday, little man! You were a gift too short-lived, but every day you were here was a day you made this world a happier place. No doubt about it. Corgi love is the gift that keeps on giving.
