Two years of Toby

Hard to believe that 2 whole years have passed since we first laid eyes on this little guy:
at the shelter

We had been looking for a dog for a couple of months but as soon as we saw him that day at the shelter we knew right away that he was the dog for us.   The  staff told us that they thought he was part Lab and part Bassett Hound. We were hoping for a small to medium sized dog, and both of those breeds can grow to be pretty big, but we had already fallen in love with him so he came home with us.

Toby is my first dog.  I didn’t know what to expect.  But I have become totally smitten with this tennis ball loving,
