So one year ago, Marcus and I decided to adopt our precious furbaby Toby. I haven’t ever really told anybody the story of how he came to be, so I figured I would share our story. So after we got married, we were looking for a way to expand our family since we weren’t ready to have babies yet (different story now). So we decided to adopt a furbaby. I told Marcus that I wanted to adopt because there are so many dogs out there that need good homes, and he agreed. That being said, we searched online and finally decided to go up to the shelter on payday. As soon as we walked into the adoptable dogs section, I spotted Toby dog and fell in love. We took him outside to play, and knew immediately that he was the one. Needless to say we brought him home that very day. Since then, we’ve had to train him how to trust (we believe his previous owners abused him), and in return we’ve gotten a huge amount of love from this dog. He is the light in my life when my skies are absolutely grey, and my support system of unconditional love. We honestly don’t know where we would be without this 52 pounds of pure love.
