So Mr. Toby came over yesterday to "check everything out." He played chase with Abbey outside and they were both pooped by the end of the night. Today he came over with all of his stuff and will be with me for a while. Not really sure how long, but at least a couple of months. :D

He's such a good boy, he just hasn't had the same training as Abbey has. Unfortunately my friend's work schedule has been pretty rough so he hasn't been able to give him all of the training and exercise as Abbey has. That will change! :D

We went to Petsmart and got him a prong collar.. I now sympathize with those of you who have problems walking a 90 lb dog. Holy crap, he about pulled my arm out of it's socket! :laugh: He is about 2x as big as Abbey, and Abbey is basically an angel on a prong collar now. No more complaining about walking with her! :laugh:

Anyways, here are some pics.. Not too many but I'll get some more of them together tomorrow. He's a big goofball just like Abbey and they get along great. :happy: He tells Abbey when he's had enough and she backs off. So far so good! :D



Naturally he's sporting one of Abbey's extra collars..! :D


The two monkeys on my bed. See the size difference..! :surprise:

Well in his defense, Abbey is tiny! :laugh: She's about 45lbs give or take a couple and Toby's around 90 lbs :happy: I don't really know, I don't think so, but who knows.

I wish. I would be a total foster failure in a heartbeat.. :laugh: I'm watching him for one of my friends for a while. He has a crazy work schedule and is going to be gone for days at a time and doesn't trust his cousin with watching him.

Don't know much about prong collars, but with my 93 lb. Jake we've just started with the Gentle Leader and it has changed our lives. Very positively. I would recommend it to anybody. Jake is much happier walking and I'm much more confident in those loose dog situations.
Just thought I'd share. Good luck and enjoy your guest.
