The Story of Rameses and How He Came To Us"
My friend Nikki called me and said; hey Karen guess what, I have a dobbie and guess what there is one more left and they cannot find a home for him .
He was in three homes in a week he cried all night, so the people gave him back. Nikki said they are beautiful and even have papers. I could not believe it , so I said when can I come up and see him? Nikki said I will call the lady. He was so cute and he got right on my lap and never left it again , I said you belong to me little one I was in love and he was to .So we went home and he did cry one night then he was in my bed and that was that - it was his .
We also had a yellow Lab her name was Brandy she loved him right away . Then it was time to name my new baby so we did just that . King Richard’s Rameses of Venango . You see Richard was my husbands name and he past away in 1995. He loved the name Rameses and we lived on Venango St in Philadelphia, Pa; so there it was. Losing Rameses was just as hard for me as loosing my husband, I know that sound’s crazy; but the hurt is so deep it rips your heart out . I thank God that my friend Nikki remembered how much I loved Dobermans. I had three in the past but, that was years ago. Rameses was the Best of the Best
He is in my heart and in my soul for as long as I live . I will get a puppy one day, but not right now my heart has a hole in it and it needs to mend.
Rameses one day couldn’t walk so we called my Raneses vet and he was diagnosed with Wobbler’s Syndrome . Wobblers’s syndrome is caused by a narrowing of the spinal cervical (neck) vertebrae which causes pressure on the spinal cord. Rameses had surgery on 9-1-05 His recovery was great for two years and then the problems returned. No more surgery, Dr Rice said; it would be to much and he was suffering. It was time to let him go. I feel so bad for that but I knew it was the right thing to do .That day my best friend and I took our last ride together to Dr Rice . It was the toughest thing I have ever had to do.
Rameses knew how to say mom and Im hungry. He was a funny dog, great with kids and cats and other dogs. He was a big baby and let me do anything to him . Rest in Peace my sweet one until i come to pick you up at Rainbow Bridge . Love Mommy Rest My Baby
