Tobias Anthony {Toby} by Melissa

We got you when you were
Only two weeks old.
Eyes barely open
But you were so bold.

We kept your mother
your sister and you.
Everyone knows that three
is much more fun than one or two.

As you grew older
You became such a klutz.
Racing through the house
And skidding on your butt.

As middle age approached
You became slightly tubby.
You loved to roll on your back
So we could rub your tummy.

Today was the day we thought
Would never come.
The vet said there was no hope
And we lost our favorite son.

We are going to miss you
Our special little boy.
We love you so much
You made our lives a joy.
