"Red pens aren't toys????"

by Kathy Kilcoyne
(Loveland, Colorado)

Because of the travel and time demands of our jobs, my husband and I decided to wait until we retired to get a puppy. We were fortunate to have both retired within a year of each other and began "the hunt" for the perfect pooch, when we came across "Toby". I fell in love with him online...and once he was placed in my arms by his breeder, you couldn't pry him away with a crowbar!

The long wait for the perfect puppy was well worth it. Toby is a shy little boy, but very much a "big dog" in a small dog's body. And, adding him to our family has allowed us to "fast-track" some of our long-term home and technology updating plans! For example, we replaced our cell phone with an upgraded version, after Toby mistook the previous one as a chew toy. And, we replaced the Berber carpeting in our living room with hardwood flooring, when Toby discovered how much fun a red pen could be!

Well I have gone to Petcentric 3 days now & voted. Thou when the big picture comes up I cannot see the word to descramble. It seems to be working thou since now u rank 13 & Sun. it was 16.

One thing nice about purina petcentric is that u can download ur pets photo & make them talk words to send friends u know b-day, get well etc cards. The cards are their to use free.

The only thing I ever get from them is the monthly newsletter & no junk mail do they send.

Again I wish u luck it would be nice to see a Coton have it's picture posted for the yr. as a monthly winner. LUCK

Toby looks good Red
by: Vicky & Jonah (Az)

OMG how cute & funny. Not that I do not feel for u in cleaning the end result. Yes we have all been their in one way or another. Not thinking at X-mas I gave Jonah a red 7 green chew thing that came in a doggie stocking. Where was my head at. :-)

Well now u have a designer dog that u do not need pay someone to dye with food coloring. Thanks for sharing the picture it brought a smile to my face & reminded me of some funny memories.

Get the red out
by: Anonymous

I did enjoy this photo of Toby. Then all I could think of is what a nightmare it was to get all of that red ink out of his hair. The only thing that I could think of doing is cutting his hair. I know how much time that I put into Sandy (my Cotton) hair. I know how much I would hate to cut her coat. My cotton just turn one at the first of the year. They are the best dogs around and I can see you do enjoy Toby. How can you not love a dog like that.

Toby looks good in red
by: Gale

This cracked me up. Toby reminds me so much of Luc who is always looking for "adventure". His adventures have led to many home improvements also. He's mellowed somewhat from when he was a puppy, but he can still surprise me with the trouble he can find. Cotons are so smart and curious you have to watch them all the time :)

Thanks for sharing your adorable Toby with us.

On my yes I see the results on him were indisputable! Reminds me of when a child I have in day care wrote on the walls and signed his name! He was so surprised we knew it was him. Great perspective you have there in your help to remodel and upgrade! Enjoy him
