This is Toby.
He was adopted from a rescue group a few years ago. Well, he adopted our daughter really. The second he saw her he knocked her to the ground and smothered her with kisses. He was saved from death row – he had 4 days left to live.
He was such a cute little fuzzball.
Toby actually came with his name and he seemed to know it so we kept it. As he grew, it really came to suit him. He’s such a silly lovable guy who will stop at nothing to earn your affection. He still covers the kids with kisses and is full of personality.
But over the years he also earned himself a nickname to go along with his name. Toby Sausage came about because he put on a big of weight and I joked that he looked like a sausage with feet, especially when he would play keep away with Simon’s tennis ball. And it stuck, even though he has trimmed back down a bit, he will always be our Toby Sausage. We will always laugh when he runs.
When you have a dog that you treat as part of the family, there is always a story behind them. The story of their life. The story of their name.
IAMS believes that it’s important to celebrate the stories behind our dogs and their names because dogs play such a meaningful role in our lives. The relationships we have with our dogs is special and IAMS has a new video titled ‘Duck’ that helps illustrate the impact of these relationships.
