TOBY PUPPY here...

Hello everybuddy!

MAXMOM feels very sad today...
We have heard that our long-standing blogging buddy,
is very, very sick!

We are so sorry for his humans
ANGUS and "The FONT"
as they hold WILF's paw on this last walk of his golden path...
Please would you go and show them some love...
We know how encouraging the
"Power of the Paw"
can be at times like this.

As for me...

I'm doing 'puppy' things...

and I want to tell you that...

Hi Toby! We are sorry your friend is so sick - we will go by and send him lots of purrs and prayers.

And we think you look very cute doing your puppy stuff - especially that last picture where you are standing in the water bowl!

We hope you have a good, fun filled, day!

verobirdie said...

Eh Toby, does Aunt Tam realize she appears on two pictures? :-)
I like the picture of you with two feet in the water bowl, looks like you have run so much that your soles hurt.

Becky Andrews said...

Toby - your love spills out. Such a cutie, you are. We also will go send our love to Wilf and his family. We so appreciated the love you and so many have given us.

Scout and Freyja said...

Our momma is leaking out of her eyes lots and lots for Wilf today. We will love our momma extra special today when we see that she needs us to give comfort.

Momma says that Toby is a furry smart pup to soak his feet to cool off on a warm South African day. Does Toby get a paw-ticure when he is done soaking?☺

Hi Toby
We'll be visiting Wilf's people shortly.

I love your "feet in the bowl" picture - I have a similar one of my angel doggie Keelee when she was a puppy.

I'm so sorry for your sick friend. I will send lots of prayers and good thoughts your way!

Smart Toby for soaking your paws, even though it looks very silly with your eyes closed LOL as if to soaking up the moment as well... I love coming here just to see how fast you are're getting to be such a big boy - and you are so active. Have a happy, long and blessed life.

Your friend Gizzy (and his mommy too)

Our Mom's heart is breaking for Angus and "the Font". They are our long-standing buddies too. We feel privileged to walk this walk with them, even though it is from afar.

It certainly sounds like an awful lot of heartache for Wilf's family recently.

Toby, your "foot bath" photo is the greatest!

Maggie Mae and Max said...


Mom and me is heartbroken over this sad news 'bouts our furiend Wilf. So much loss in the pass few months for Angus and "the Font".
Digby will be waiting at the bridge for him... what a glorious reunion that will be.

Thank you Toby fur making us smile today. :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

brooke said...

Life seems so unfair sometimes. For them to be going through this so soon after losing Digby, it's just not right.

Toby's cuteness helps lessen the pain though!

Molly the Airedale said...

We feel just horrible for Angus. Life can sure be so unfair.
Thank you for making us smile, Toby!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Noah said...

Toby you are so cute! I will stop by and see Wilf's now.

So very unfair for Wilf and his family - too too much.

We love the paws in the bowl shot, but that tush shot would be a great entry to Twink's contest.

Wilf has been in our thoughts since Angus wrote Wilf was not well on the 10th, but his diagnosis yesterday was a shock to read. Life is so unfair, and so sad sometimes. We are thinking of Wilf and his family, and also of Digby at this time.

I feel very sad today, too, Toby. It is so hard to understand why things happen the way they do. But I know that his brother, Digby, and MaxDog will be waiting to greet him at the Bridge. And my! What adventures they will have.

Please give MaxMom extra snuggles today.

oh toby you really do just get cuter... thanks for your wishes for wilf we are feeling rather heartbroken but you helped put a smile on our faces... loves and licks xxx

sprinkles said...

I cried when I read Wilf's diagnosis earlier today. Sooooo sad!

I didn't think it was possible to get any cuter but Toby sure seems to be getting cuter by the day! Love that last pic of him.

Thanks MaxMom, we'll check out Wilf!

Toby you look so sweet with Max's favorite giraffe stuffie! I know that he would have been happy to see you with it and not the king!

woo woos, Tessa

KB said...

I, too, have been very sad today about Wilf - so sudden and tragic for everyone. Thanks for sending the power of the paw to their family.

Toby looks so soft and so cute. Aunt Tammy looks like the perfect mentor. I love seeing her look over at him as he stood with his paws in the water bowl. I remember that trick from our puppies!

Bouncing Bertie said...

We too are devastated to hear the news about Wilf. Thank you for putting up this post. And also reminding us of the joys of new life too, with Toby doing 'puppy things'.

Oh but that haircut of Tams does look a bit, well, rough!

Love and hugs,
Gail and Bertie.

Mrs. JP said...

We are sad to Wilf's family, thanks for keeping us posted so we can give our support too.
Toby standing in the water bowl! Classic.

Jan Mader said...

I'm so sorry to hear about never is easy when a friend is really sick.

Just have to say how adorabe you are. Tweedles told me all about you!

Our household has grown since we last visited. We took in a foster Newfoundland in the sping and just couldn't give him up. All 134 pounds of him is still puppy...he'll be 2 in January! Come visit!

Piappies World said...

We have been sad about Wilf's condition. We just read Angus' post today and with tears in our eyes, we are also happy that he is having a good day today. Making each moment counts is what matters. We continue to have our paws crossed for him and Angus and "the font".

We agree on making your hiney shot above as an entry to Twinkie's contest! As for your cute photo with your paws inside your water bowl, were you cooling your tummy with the water? Wai-Pai and Wai-Max love doing that. Have fun.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I visited Wilf yesterday when you told me. I was so sad that I did not have words.
I learned something new yesterday.
I used to think that the power of the paws would make miracles happen. That is what I always wanted to happen and sometimes miracles do happen. But I learned that the power of the paws sometimes means that we will go sit by someone when they are sad, and put our paws around them.
