Dog Picks Birthday Gift

April Livingston | May 23rd, 2019

A yellow Labrador named Toli has a very important job—perhaps the most important job in the world. Toli is a service dog who dedicates his life to helping his best friend, a man named Michael Cantu. Michael and Toli have been together every moment of every day since they met. Toli helps Michael navigate the world, opening drawers and doors, turning lights on and off, and even picking up things that have been dropped on the floor. Toli’s life is dedicated to Michael completely, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a day dedicated to him for all his hard work.

It was Toli’s fourth birthday recently and Michael had the best idea to help thank Toli for all his hard work—and celebrate his special day. Michael wanted to get Toli a gift, but wasn’t sure which toy was the right choice for him. So, rather than picking out something he may not like he decided to let Toli make the decision. He took him to the toy aisle at the pet store and let him pick out his own toy. Toli can be seen wagging his tail, walking down the aisle and perusing his options—it was like he knew what he was doing. It turns out Michael takes Toli to do this each year, and this year he picked out a stuffed rabbit toy.

Michael says Toli loves to nap and cuddle with his toys, and he just loves the rabbit he picked out for his birthday. Ever since he picked out the rabbit, who is now named Chungus, he can often be found snuggling the toy when he gets a chance to relax. After all Toli does to help his best friend Michael, he certainly deserves a good snuggle with his other best friend—his new stuffed rabbit.
