This story is about a loyal dog named Toby who waits for his owner Roman, every day by the window to come home from work. Roman, whose dog passed away after 11 years of marriage, has shared his story online in hopes of alleviating the pain!
Roman from Chicago said that Toby was so friendly and sweet, that even when anyone tried to be tough on him, he was still very nice to them. When I lost my dog, I took his body with me. out of the vet’s office in a black plastic bag.
The owner also added that his loyal dog often waits for him by the window when he goes to work for 8-10 hours. Toby also knows the exact time Roman gets home while waiting for him at the door.
Unfortunately, Toby who has had cardiomyopathy, ᴛᴏʀɴ ʟɪɢᴀᴍᴇɴᴛs, He’s had three serious sᴜʀɢᴇʀɪᴇs before. Doctors say he probably won’t live much longer. He beat the odds. And even when he’s sick. He had ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ and stage 4 ᴋɪᴅɴᴇʏ ꜰᴀɪʟᴜʀᴇ again (diagnosed October 2018), the vet said ‘the dog in front of me didn’t match the test results on the computer screen’. It’s still lovely, fun, and still a little edgy. He lives until February.
“For the past three days, he’s been holding on to nothing and has been very lethargic. So we all said our goodbyes and took him to the vet. This was the most ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ decision I had to make in my life so far and it still haunts me four months later like it was yesterday.”
Roman says Toby is very sweet. Even when it growls, it never bites anyone. Even when the kids used to be rude to him, he was still super sweet to them. The smaller they are, the more he lets them run away. And he’s very protective of people. If he sees someone fighting or arguing, he will try to stop them by standing on his hind legs and pressing on the person to try to distract them. He’s so sweet. And very encouraging. He likes to be around people.
