Toby… aka TB Nitro BlueDog

December 5, 1998 – April 8th, 2009



Toby, what can I say about you. You came to us through fate. You were always our pony dog, jumping and bucking around like a pony when we came home. Your energy was amazing but on the other hand you were always standing there to be petted. You touched so many hearts and were loved by everyone who met you. You raced until you were almost 5, and even then you were spoiled rotten. Troy made sure you had the best of everything while racing and you won a major spot in his heart as well. You always preferred being loved on to even eating. You tolerated me dressing you up in ridiculous costumes but loved the attention that you got, Always the Showman. When a leash came out, you were ready to go. At Meet and Greets you were a Gentle Giant, showing people that no matter how big you were, you were gentle and loving. If you someone didn’t pet your head, you made sure it was where they could reach it and would gently nudge them until they complied with your demands. As our oversized puppy, you amused us all of the time with your antics.. When you would come in from outside, you would fly across the room, pouncing on a toy or dog bed and sliding across with your front bowed to the floor. You are free from pain now my friend. You are running and chasing whatever you can find at the Bridge. And I know deep in my heart there are many old friends to play with. You have close friends and loved ones to show you around and teach you the ropes at the Bridge. And as you run, you have a song playing in your ears… “Born to be Wild”. We will always love you and know you will be waiting for us when our time comes. You will greet us as you always did, bouncing around, that goofy grin and loving face..


We love you and miss you so much..


Almighty God, Author of all creation,

By your gentle power, be present for this special creature of your making and our steadfast friend Toby.

Fill his eyes with a light that he may see beyond this world to a home within your love, where pain is gone and physical facility is forgotten.

Ease his fear as you brush away our tears.

Let death be gentle as nightfall, promising a new day when sighs of grief turn to expressions of praise that you shared this beautiful creature with those of us gathered at his side.

Now Run Boy. Run to the Master of us all.
