1994 - 2007
Full of life, joy, and energy, Toby left us in October of 2007. She was born in August 1994 and was twice the size and four times the spirit of her siblings. A stand-out from the beginning, Toby was destined for dog sports. With an excess of energy, she blew off obedience for agility in an attempt to gain control of what some termed kindly as "high spirits." Quickly mastering the jumpers course, other agility titles escaped her grasp as she outstripped her handlers, often able to take an obstacle several times before the next command was given. She took one flyball class and fell in love; it was truly her sport, combining so many things she loved--jumping, running, and retrieving balls. Although arthritis set in, Toby did not let this get her down. She continued to enjoy swimming, running with friends, retrieving Frisbees and balls, and showing her stuff in ADGW demos. Until the very last, she still treasured her huge collection of stuffed toys, showing them off to her many special friends, her human family. She is missed, but the special joy she taught her family lives on.
