Toby “Bear” is named after my cousin Bear who passed away in a motorcycle accident. Bear was a total sweetheart, also kind, but you knew not to mess with him. He looked like a Teddy Bear…hence the nick name. Well that is Toby – a total love bug with a go-with the flow attitude.
Toby was a rescue. I was only supposed to overnight him (I volunteer for a animal rescue) but I fell in love with him about 20 minutes after he arrived. I had not even gotten him home from transport before I called to say I was keeping him. He is about a 6 year old yellow lab with a LOT of personality.
Toby was running for president and had his own blog, http://toby4president.wordpress.com, but he became satisfied with the Romney-Ryan ticket and has chosen to withdrawal.
Toby likes to take his stuffed animal friends every where he goes: car ride, Vet, walk in the neighborhood, to bed…everywhere!
