Hello all,
« on: November 27, 2007, 12:41:59 pm »
I've been lurking here for a while and gleening info where possible. This forum seems like a good place to go when someone has a question.

I've been waiting for quite a bit of time to get a puppy - almost a year. I'm finally getting a Dobe pup in less than 2 weeks. She will be about 9&1/2 weeks old when I get her. I'm very excited and nervous at the same time. I've never had a big inside dog before and certainly not a Doberman. The only thing I'm nervous about is the potty training. But I hear that they learn quickly. I sooooo look forward to camping and hiking and going to the park with her. I just wanted to say HI to everyone and hope your Christmas is as great as mine!

Take care all,
ratdog

Hi Tina,

Thanks for the welcome. My name is Terri. Ratdog is the last sweetie I had, a Scottish Terrier. I love and miss her alot, as well as Tal, my cat.

Jack is adorable. How old is he and how long have you had him?

I'm naming the Dobe "Cody". I saw that name in a post earlier but I had chosen her name several months ago. I'll post some pics as soon as I can. She's 3 and 1/2 hours away from me so it will be another 2 weeks before I have any.

Thanks again for the welcome,
TC

Hi Tina .. you're just gonna love this place !  I was honored to have been the Mom of DeeOooGee a sweet Dobe girl I rescued years ago, she had a bad beginning but was the greatest pup ever and was with me for 5 years before she went to get all her toys back from the dog next door at Rainbow Bridge.  Gaye/Ouch

Hey Terri! Welcome!

I've been really obsessing over Dobes lately! I can't wait to see puppy pics of your lil' girl. You'll love it here, and Jenn is an expert on Dobies. :)

Hey everbody!

It's great to meet you! There are some pretty big paws represented on this forum!

The breeder sent me some pics last night. She is adorable! And fat! LOL Eats like a pig! She said that she has a real good personality and is already getting some of her potty habits down a little bit. I just look forward to getting her and really glad that she'll be with us for Christmas. I'll have to burn my credit card after the holidays!!! LOL

I'd been saving money for a new motorcycle. I told mom, "Well, there goes the motorcycle!" And don't regret it one bit.

Thanks again for the welcome. I look forward to getting to know you. And I will need help with the pics because I am quite challenged in that area as well.  :D

Take care all,
ratdog (Terri)

Thank you, Jenn. That link will certainly come in handy. I was looking for some place on the site to explain that. And I just bought a digital camera. I have been thinking about it for a long time but now with Cody coming it is time to go ahead and do it.

Thanks again.
