May 1, 2010 was one of the most difficult days in my life. That was the day that we had to put our sweet, lovable Toffee down.

About two years ago, Toffee started to get a growth on his backend. It had grown steadily since then. When we took him to the vet to have it checked out, he suggested that it be removed. Since Toffee is an older dog, we decided not to have it removed.

On Thursday, April 22, he started to bleed from a growth. We took him to the vet on Friday for him to exam it. It was not good. We decided at that time to make Toffee's life as comfortable as possible.

The mass started to get worse, so we decided to have him put down one week later. Needless to say, Toffee got extra treats, was spoiled more rotten than he has been. Saying goodbye to him everyday, many tears, memories flowing, knowing that he was loved by all of us, made the time with him special.

We had the most wonderful three years with Toffee. We are so glad that Karen brought him home from the Humane Society in March 2007. She misses him so much. So do we.
