ROMMEL WILL ALWAYS BE OUR BIG BUDDY! WHEN HE WAS BORN RICKEY PICKED HIM OUT OF HIS LITTER. HE WAS THE RUNT OF THE LITTER BUT HE CERTAINLY DID NOT TURN OUT TO BE ANY RUNT. HE WAS ANYTHING BUT. WE BEGAN TAKING HIM TO DOG SHOWS WHEN HE WAS ABOUT A YEAR OLD. HE DID GREAT(AS WE KNEW HE WOULD)! HE BECAME A BLOODLINE CHAMPION IN HIS HOME TOWN OF KNOXVILLE ON NOV.01,2001. WE WERE ALL SO PROUD OF HIM. WE ALL HAVE VERY FOND MEMORIES OF ROMMEL. I REMEMBER HOW HE STAYED RIGHT WITH ME WHEN I HAD TO TAKE CHEMOTHERAPY, IF I WOULD LAY DOWN HE LAYED WITH ME.I REMEMBER WHEN WE WOULD EAT HOW HE WAITED PATIENTLY FOR A CRUMB TO FALL,(I KNOW PAPAW WOULD DROP THINGS ON PURPOSE!) I THINK ONE OF MY FONDEST IS HOW I WOULD SING "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" TO HIM. I REALLY MEANT THE PART, "PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY SUNSHINE AWAY" HOWEVER ON OCT. 20TH,2008 DR. JAMES CALLED AND SAID THERE WAS NO TREATMENT FOR HIS LIVER PROBLEM AND THAT HE WAS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE. WE HAD TO GIVE HIM UP. MY SUNSHINE WAS TAKEN AWAY THAT DAY. WE COULD NOT LET HIM BE IN PAIN. HE DID NOT DESERVE THAT. WE MISS HIM VERY MUCH. WE HAD ROMMEL CREMATED SO WE COULD KEEP A PART OF HIM WITH US, HOWEVER HE WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS AND ALWAYS ON OUR MIND. WE LOVE YOU BIG GUY!! LOVE, MOM|
DECEMBER 4TH. 2008 OUR 1ST CHRISTMAS WITHOUT ROMMEL. WE HUNG HIS CHRISTMAS BELLS COLLAR HE WORE EVERY CHRISTMAS ON HIS BEAR HE LOVED SO WELL!
