"I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive" --- Gilda Radner
Hi my dear friends,
During all of the grief, crying and sadness these last few weeks, when they Mommy felt her world was falling apart, came a ray of hope today.
My wishes have finally come true.
My big brother Toby got adopted today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Mommy has cried so much in the last 9 1/2 months, since she had to give my brothers up, but now they are tears of joy. I think that our gracious Lord decided that the Mommy needed something to cheer her up. What more could we ask for than this, except having Aunt Annie and Samantha back.
My Aunt Annie used to say that there is always something good just around the corner for all of us, if we have the patience to wait. "I think my Aunt Annie told God the Mommy needed this to keep her going"
thank you dear Lord

This is the Mommy's favorite funny picture of Toby--isn't he the cutest camel you've ever seen? Halloween 2006.

The Mommy looked at the DROH website this morning, like she did every morning, to see if this picture of Toby was still on the home page. It was and she prayed a little prayer that he would be adopted soon. My dear Aunt Judy called the Mommy not 2 minutes after that to tell the Mommy that his new parents were at the Reliant dog show yesterday to meet him and if everything worked out OK with the meet & greet they had been approved for adoption. Of course, who would not love my Toby. Of course his new Mommy, Daddy & two human brothers did do. Today 07/20/08 is Toby's new official birthday.

Love you all.......Mona & the Mommy too!!

Hi Mona,

It's such great news to hear that your big brother Toby has been adopted. It's tough work looking for potential adopters these days. You mom did a good job. =)

Sweet Licks,
