Car rides and walks were more important than food.

Like Mummy, Toby loved his food. He would sit quietly next to us at our dinner table hoping for crumbs at every meal time. He loved treats, especially bones and whenever I picked up my car keys, he would be on the mat and that was a sign that he deserved a treat because mummy was going to work and leaving him alone at home.

Toby loved squeaky toys and his thrill was to destroy the toys and pull out the stuffings and the squeaker. He liked to play chasing around the house with a toy in his mouth.


When in the house during the day, Toby’s favourite spot for relaxation was on our Futon sofa bed in the lounge. He knew he wasn’t allowed to lay there so he tried his luck as long as I did not noticed. He loved the sunshine coming into our window in the lounge and that was his spot for sunbathing.

At night, he slept in Mummy’s room and shared mummy’s bed and liked to get under the duvet (fully covered).

Hedgehogs and Tob were not friends. The first time one summer, he saw a hedgehog, he went crazy barking and circling around it. The next year, he actually caught one in his mouth as we were not home. It was hard getting him to drop the prickly hog.
