In Memoriam of Toby

June 2, 2016

It’s been hard getting used to doing things without Toby. He was such a big part of life here on the farm.

He followed us around everywhere, was very protective of me, and thought The Farmer was his best buddy.

A cute little pup…

He grew up into a handsome dog and such a fun companion. Whatever was going on around here, he was a part of it.

A mix of American Farm Collie and an old line of Border Collies, he was super smart and loved to please.

Here is a collection of pictures taken from 2005 to 2009, in his younger years. You’ll see that he loved to play in water, go to the mailbox and go on walks. He was good with all the animals, being protective of the young ones but not taking any flak from ornery roosters or older sheep and goats.

In short, he was a gem of a dog.

We really miss him.
