Ramsan (Ram-sun) was the most sweet and loving and intelligent pharaoh hound you can imagine, people who gets to know him tell me he is almost humanlike, which I of course already knew! He was so calm and dignified, except on the coursing field, (where he become a maniac!) his favourite waste of time, he sure got the hunting instinct intact!

Ramsan have had an incredible show career, in many ways unique in Pharaoh Hound history, from his first year out in the rings which gave him Top Pharaoh Hound only one year old in 1997, and throughout his life until his last year of showing, 2003, which rendered him Top PH in USA. His last show was Westminster in February 2004, where he won Best Of Breed almost 8 years old, and by this crowning his long career in the same high style as he lived it, and making him end it at the very top. Ramsan is now retired from showing for the rest of his life. But he has many great sons and daughters to carry on his proud heritage and beautiful traits, to many more generations and shows to come.

Ramsan was a true king among Pharaohs, and THE Pharaoh in my life!
Ramsan's Cruft's critic from judge Zena Thorn-Andrews: The winner has absolutely exquisite head, elegant arched neck, sound front, good bone, strong pasterns, good quarters, well carried tail, in such tough hard condition and a good colour.

"Five wonderful BOB winners standing there before me. Fifth was a top quality Pharaoh Hound, that moved like a well oiled machine. It was a thrill to watch this one move so effortlessly and still be so correct in structure and type".

Judge Pat Ide, Huzzah greyhounds USA, wrote this about Ramsan at Skokloster Sighthound Specialty 2000, in the Best In Show final.

This is what André van den Broek, "Of The Netherlands" Pharaoh's in Holland, wrote when Ramsan won the Finnish Pharaoh Hound Club Specialty 1997, over 46 entries.

"My BOB-winner was a superb male, one of the best I've ever seen. ---one with a very nice future ahead! Of course my BOS (Antefas Kahira) was also a lovely type, beautiful overall, and she has been already a great winner in the ring, but the male had a little bit more of the rich tan that made him even more spectacular. What a nice combination these two would make in the breeding."
