Don't be fooled, he always looks like this, however his world has changed drastically over the last 3 months and it makes me wonder sometimes if he just might be a little sad on the inside. He has done a great job adjusting to the change. He has been sweet and gentle and laid back. He is not quite sure what to think of the little man yet, but I am sure one day they will be great playmates. (hopefully) Although Toby and I are a little distant these days as much of my attention is aimed elsewhere, we still share some great moments.

Toby and I pass in the middle of every night as I walk through the living room to feed a crying baby. It is at that moment where I have never felt more connected to the emotions and ideas of my 4 year old dog. It is at that moment, in the dark of night, with sleepy eyes, when Toby and I share a short but meaningful conversation. Toby lifts his head off his dog bed, turns and stares at me. I look at him prying my eyes open just enough to not run into the wall and to not miss out on this shared sentiment. With crying in the background, a dim lit room, and the clock glowing 2:00 am, we exchange these unspoken words....

Me: seriously!
Toby: Wow!
Me: tell me about it

Luv ya Tobes, thanks for being so understanding...hehe

Aww, give Toby a scritch behind the ears for me. He deserves it! I doubt you're really into having your ears scratched, but I'll find you at church on Sunday and hug you instead! =)
