    Katrina, that was a beautiful tribute to a wonderful cat, companion and dear friend. Again you had me in tears and in my minds eyes I could see all the mischief Milly got up too.

    I really felt you pain and thank-you for sharing it with us. Bless you, your daughter and I am sure Toby and Milly are watching over you.

    Hi Michelle- I am so sorry to read of your enormous loss. It is heartbreaking to say goodbye to our beloved pets, and even 3 1/2 years on, I still find it tough to accept that Toby is no longer physically beside me. He is there in many wonderful memories though, and they are very precious.

    Uou are right in the thick of it all now and grief can be overwhelming. It is also an individual journey, so nobody can tell you how to grieve. I can only promise that it will get better in time as you and your family adjust to a new life without Madison by your sode. Her star will always shine bright.

    Thoughts are with you and sending you much love from Down Under.

    Hi Katrina,  My name is Michelle and on Wednesday I had to say goodbye to my border collie Madison.  She was 11.  They day she chose us from her litter, my now husband just lost is job with Ansett, so we had to move to Bahrain and the following year to Dubai where we still live.  Of course she came with us along with our rescue cat.  Since then, we've moved to 3 countries, had two kids and we are so devestated I can't begin to explain.  I decided to search the web as I'd always loved Toby and loved watching you guys on tv.   Madison reminded me of Toby so much.  When I first moved to Bahrain I bought your book of tricks and Madi learned all of them.  People honestly thought she could count but she was so smart and I only needed to blink and she barked.  She also loved agility classes - she would smile when she saw the course.  Katrina,  I see you also had to say goodbye to your beautiful boy and I just felt I needed to say I'm so so sorry for you.  I've read some of your blogs and sitting her sobbing for you too and myself really and the emptiness and sadness that is in my house.  I feel so far from home and knowing how you must have felt when you lost Toby.  Thank you for your Wonderful Pets Website.  I will try and keep reading and hope everyday I feel better.  Its just so hard isn't it.  Michelle x

    Hello Katrina,

    i am so sorry to hear about Toby's passing, I know that he was a wonderful dog, and I can see attributes of him in our dog Max, who happens to be Toby's son, he is 3 years old. And we bought him from a couple in NSW when he was twelve weeks. Max was the eldest of the litter. If I recall correctly there were 9 puppies all together, all black in colouring. I know that the breeders were hoping for some of Toby's beautiful chocolate colour, alas in that regard they all seemed to take after their mother.

    Hi Katrina, just wanted to let you know that I recently received my pendant with Tilly's fur inside and I treasure it so much. I have her close to my heart forever now. Someone on your website told me about this service, so I'm really grateful as its my most treasured possession. We are still not happy families after 3 months with our new additions as our old cat is very upset with us, but am still hoping things will change....one day.
