    Pharaoh R . I . P 9-9- 2013

    Jessica and I wanted a dog in the year of 2004 . Our land lord would not allow a dog over 30 lbs. I dislike small dogs so it's either get a small one or none at all. After a few days of research I narrowed it down to min pins. After some more research I decided on a male runt. Info I found was they are the most caring and obedient . Found a 7 week runt puppy and quickly drove to N.C to buy him . I was in disbelief at his size. Barely bigger then a lighter. So small he went to work with me in my shirt pocket till he was a year old .

    Pharaoh is the first pet I have ever owned that has taken my heart fully. Potty trained in under a week. never chews or bites anything he shouldn't . Leash trained in about an hour. Command trained with ease. This dog seemed to live to make me happy .

    I have always had antisocial issues. If I'm in public I'm fine , but once I'm home it's hard to get me to leave the house. Pharaoh helped me with these issues . Instead of being depressed when I'm at home I'm happy because my buddy won't let me ignore him.

    This was daddy's dog. When I come home everyday he greets me and isn't content till he can sit in my lap. He waits for me at the bathroom or in the kitchen . He was brought home to be the family dog , but he wasn't interested in anyone other then me.

    I didn't want to be there when he drifted away. Jessica took him to the vet this morning. When she called with the bad news I broke down. I had her come pick me up since I can't drive. Pharaoh has been there for every moment I needed him so as hard it is I had to repay my best friend by being there for his last moments. The doctor let me hold him while everything was going on and let me stay holding him till I was ready to leave.

    I have never cried this much nor felt sooo much pain like this in my entire life. I have had some bad times between losing close friends and family , but I lost a huge chunk of my heart today .

    I will always love you Pharaoh.





    He always love standing in stance.

  7. RIP Pharaoh. :(

    One of my best friends has one that looks just like him. Such cool dogs.

    Man threads like this tear me up. I honestly don't know if i could handle it if something was to happen to Caesar.

    So sorry for your loss.

    Sorry for your loss.

    I was also reluctant about small dogs, but we have rescued 2 in the past couple years, and none of my concerns, mostly driven by small dog myths, arose ......they are great dogs.

    Very sorry for your loss. I am sure he was comforted by your being there with him. I think about losing my pets frequently and while it doesn't get any easier I know that I did the best thing for them which is what matters most.
