Toby passed away tonight
I am crying as I write this but almost relieved. My 17 year old Toby passed away tonight. He had another bout of seizures tonight. The last one seemed to have cause a problem. He wouldn't stop barking for over 3 hours and he was walking on his knuckles not his pads. The vet met with us at the office and he had to be put down. The vet thinks he may have had a small stroke or a brain tumor. He was such a fighter and had such a will to live, but I believe it was his time. He is being cremated this week and I am going to keep his ashes with a little shrine. I will miss him dearly but am at peace that he is safe now. I want to thank yt, the admins and everyone here for being compassionate with a Yorkie owner in their time of need. Every time Toby was sick, everyone on here were such generous caring people, helping me cope. I hope you all can help me again to help me cope with my loss. I love each and everyone here. After having Toby for almost half my life I have to say that I am going to cherish his life and not dwell on his death. I do have to say I don't think I could own another Yorkie ever again. I know in my heart that I would compare Toby to every other Yorkie.
Thank you for everything. God bless to all.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You made the right decision. His pain is over. You were his best friend to the very end. We should all be so lucky. I hope 17 years of memories bring you comfort.

Oh my, I am so sorry for the pain you are feeling in your loss of your Toby. 17 years, not to mention half of your life must make it so painful for you. But you are right in also feeling relieved and happy (in a way) that Toby is now free from pain and from the suffering of his seizures.
R.I.P. sweet angel Toby
........and hugs to you. I hope your heart heals in good time, and to getting another yorkie????? Never say never; someday another little one may capture your heart and need you to love them just like Toby did.
