Ohhh, that's so sad. I was hoping he was doing OK. Mike, and family, I'm so sorry on the loss of your sweet Toughy... :(

Please accept our sympathies. It obviously was a difficult battle but hopefully he's resting comfortably.

I'm so very sorry to hear the sad news of Toughy's passing. :( Seeing what Micheal and Toughy could do together gave me hope and inspiration when I was learning to train Moe. My deapest sympathies to Mike and his family. :(

Mike, please accept my deepest condolances.

I'll light a candle for sweet Toughynutter

I can't imagine Cyberhound without Toughy.Sincere condolence to you and your family.
I am heart broken. I am so sorry, Mike. Lighting a candle to help our Toughy find his way to the bridge. (((((Toughynutter)))))
I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Toughy. My thoughts are with you and your family Mike, wishing I could say something comforting. You and Toughy were a team, no doubt about that. :(
My thoughts and prayers and deepest condolence to you, Mike, in your loss of Toughy... he was a beloved of the forum here and we were all rooting for him.

I am so sorry.
It was quite clear that you loved that dog so much.
Rest in peace Toughy.
So sad to hear about Toughy. You have been around since we started on the forum (I believe you might have even written a birthday ditty for Jake). Maizy and Jake are sending sweet slobber remembrances.
Farewell, Toughy. Sometimes the fight is just too much and the last hurdle too hard to get over. We enjoyed living vicariously through Toughy's exploits. He sure knew how to show people that bassets are NOT just lazy dogs with big ears! Rest in peace.

Toughynutter has written his last post. Carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders proved too heavy a burden.

Oh, Mike. I am so very sorry.
Mike, I am deeply sorry for the loss of Toughy. What a spectacular hound he was. You two were truly blessed to have had each others company.

Thanks for posting the pics of him in action, what a wonderful tribute to a very special boy.

We'll miss you, Toughy. It was wonderful to watch you working with mike. Rest in peace, little one.
