Happy 7th Birthday, Toby!

Oh my gosh, little dog! I can’t believe you are 7 years old! 

The time has gone by so fast, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You have taught me so much about life, and have changed mine for the better. So many things have changed in the past 7 years. 
You have been with me through at least four different jobs, came with me when I was looking at houses with my Relator. We have traveled to a bunch of states including Virginia, Ohio and Maine, walked across the bridge to Canada at Niagara Falls, took a random day drive to montreal … the list could go on and on. 

There have been many moment I have been proud to be your human, but the past two months have sent me over the moon. For the longest time I have said that you needed a dog companion. A friend. 
Everyone told me I was wrong. They were worried you would not get along with another dog, and shun him, or her, away. I knew better. 
Sure enough, you took to your new brother Maddux, after a very short amount of time. I have never seen you so active and lively. I am so proud of you. You are teaching him (mostly) all your good habits. You even deal with his sometimes annoying obession of wanting to be as close to you as possible.

Your sweet personality is contagious. You love to play and are the best snuggle dog. You just mush into people. Even as I am writing this, you are snuggled on my lap. 

I would be lying if I didn’t say that a big benefit of my most current job is that I get to work from home, which means I am with you more. You sit next to me while I work, and make the day stress-free. Sometimes you even sit on my lap, so I have learned to work that way, too. 

You are a sweet little love. I am so happy I am your human and you are my dog. Although it would another four months until I met you, I am super happy you were born 7 years ago today.
