1: Four years ago today little Toby was born. He had a rather traumatic start in life as his mummy died. He & his brothers & sisters were taken in by the Bath Cats & Dogs Home & were hand reared which is obviously why he loves people so much. Both his parents were Jack Russells & the rest of the litter were black & white but he has a more unusual brindle coat.
Luckily for us the home decided that we were the perfect new family for an orphan puppy. The photo above was taken at the home the first time we met - who could resist that worried little face? He was known there as "Clinton" but we changed his name.
2: Toby is short for Toblerone, not Tobias!
3: His big sister is Lucy who had been an only dog for 6 years, but as she has a kind nature she welcomed the new addition & even let him snuggle up & share her basket so he wouldn't miss his sisters & brothers.
4: Toby dreams of being an agility dog - look at him fly!
5: His hobbies include sleeping....
...warming his bum on the Aga....
6: He is in love with Pippa the cat!
7: He is an accomplished pickpocket who could give The Artful Dodger a run for his money. His loot is usually tissues!
8: His favourite foods include bacon, carrots & chocolate which he will do his best to get hold of, so we have to keep it well out of his way as we all know that chocolate isn't good for dogs.
