    Well, the puppy got here today. First days are always tough, but I didn't imagine HOW busy I'd be trying to handle both the pup AND my 4 yr old trying to handle it, lol...

    He's a good looking little man

    Actually he's a BIG little man

    They're already best friends



    For Dobermann lovers, more on my blog

    One cool thing, he doesn't seem to mind the shutter sound at all ;)

    Beautiful pics, I especially like the second one with his over sized collar. Looks like he's going to be a big boy!

    What software do you use for the frames/borders?

    Thanks :) I use Snapseed for all my black@white conversion, vignette and border needs. Works wonders.

    Great pictures, nianys! Your daughter seems to be loving the little dog. :)

    Very nice, although that does not like a puppy

    Oh man, just look at the size of those paws he's going to grow into! Hoo boy! It's a good thing you have a young child in the house, because there's no way you're going to keep up with that boy. But what a joy ride it's going to be. I envy you... But having gone through it myself with a new pup this spring, I had the advantage of having an old dog to help teach him the ropes. :)

    I especially like the first photo and the inseparable friends in the cage. Very nicely done.

    Thx to all for the nice comments. Kevin, I promise not to tell Colt you called him an oversized Daschund, lol.
    His full registered name is Hercule of Devil Inside, call name "Colt" (because he's quite a pistol !). Aside from a few intestinal duress, he's doing great and adapting well.

    Yep, both parents are pretty big.

    Daddy in particular is one big, bad@ss show and work competition Dobe. If they'd cropped his ear he'd be downright scary, lol. Here in Europe cropping ears has been unauthorized for years if the dog is to be shown. Thankfully they'll still accept docked tails, because natural ones really ruin the silhouette big time :(

    What made you decide on a Dobe? He's just terrific!

    I've bred, raised, trained and showed Belgian Malinois to the highest level for 10 years. As wonderful as they are, I'd never trust one with my kid and they have double coat that is a pain in a house. I wanted a short coated breed, calmer than Belgians, with big guard potential. Ok, that's all bullcrap, I always dreamed of owning a Dobe as a kid ;)
