Dobermans Den Posts

Here are two wonderful old photos of Dobermans.   These were found at this forum link,  http://www.dobermantalk.com/doberman-related-chat/1923-history-dobermann-4.html In the first photo, you can see 3 well-trained Dobermans and one stubborn Doberman waiting for a treat. In the second photo, according to the forum poster, ” shows 2 Dobermann v. Radeland back in the 50’ties, advertising for a dog show in Berlin.” It would be nice to see all these vintage photographs compiled into one beautiful reference book.

You don’t see this every day, a nun in traditional habit clothing walking a Doberman. And here’s another Nun with a Doberman. Sister is on a mission to help prisoners help others  

Yesterday I put down my 11-year-old Doberman. Her legs were failing her that she could no longer walk without falling down. I feel awful right now, but I know it was the right thing to do, and as time goes by I know my heartache will hurt less and less. Now that she’s gone, every time I see something that reminds me of her, my eyes well up with tears. I haven’t felt this sad in a long time. I’m now undecided if I should throw out her favorite toys and any reminders of her, or not. I knew I didn’t want…

This months Doberman photo has our favorite dog in disguise.  

Do you need to convince people to stay off your property? Maybe a Guard Dog Sign will help.

We’ve seen Dobermans in the movies. We’ve seen Dobermans in music videos. Now, here are the best Doberman commercials. Let’s start a favorite commercial that was first shown at Super Bowl 2014. What do you get when you mix a Doberman with a Chihuahua? Watch and find out. In this video, it’s Doberman vs BMW. And how do you make a Doberman look even cooler? Give him sunglasses. And another German car commercial. We’ve seen Dobermans with Audi, BMW, and now Opel. This may be the most interesting army recruiting video ever, for the Swedish Armed Forces. Maybe the cutest…

Are You Ruining Your Dog’s Teeth? I was shocked recently to find out that my 11-year-old Doberman has terrible teeth. Here’s a copy of my $2,396 dental vet bill. She had bad periodontal disease, a loose tooth and needed tons of other teeth removed. How had I neglected her dental health? How long has she been in pain? I cried at the dental vet’s office and felt like an awful dog owner. Actually, I cried three times that day. I cried when I got the x-ray results, when I left her for surgery, and when I picked her up after…

For all the doberman fans & friends out there, two of my favorite dog quotes. “Those who teach the most about humanity, aren’t always human.”  –  Donald L. Hicks “To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring – it was peace.”  – Milan Kundera  

It looks like Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader and his evil Galactic Empire are now enlisting Dobermans as Stormtrooper soldiers.  Dobermans were used in previous wars here on earth, so it’s not surprising the evil forces would find our Dobermans useful in war again. The new Star Wars movie is being released next week. And for our Star Wars fans, this post is for you. While I’m not a big fan of dogs wearing costumes, they can be fun. Costumes may even help our Dobermans get a better reputation.  And the geek in me loves the Star Wars mania. I especially like the…
