Sorry I don't post much these days. I don't spend much time on the computer anymore, and when I do, it's not for very long. Plus, I'm not really home very much anyway (I do a lot of house-sitting and most of the houses surprisingly don't have internet), and when I am home, the dogs take up the majority of my time. I still browse PT frequently though. And while I have a minute, I wanted to share some new pictures of the dogs for those that might miss seeing them. For those that remember Spring, I had to give her back to her breeder back in July. There are numerous reasons for that, and it's definitely for the best, but I can't really post about it publically. The other three are all doing great though. Anyhow, on with the pictures...

Ripley first. He's 7 months old now and has his first show next Saturday. Just the one day as neither of us really know what we're doing, so I only entered him for experience. He's a great puppy -- he loves to work, learns quickly, and is very eager. He's lots of fun to have around most days (when he's not getting into trouble!).

Yay!! Pictures of some of my PT favs. I :love: your doggies. Sorry to hear about Spring. That's got to be hard to deal with. Ripley is turning into quite the handsome man. Wow! The lighting in your photos is awesome. Makes the coats look silky. Very Nice!!

Oh thank you, I've been wondering about DANCE!

Somehow I missed that you moved into dobies.

ALl 3 look grand.

Best wishes with Ripley and I hope he stays out of trouble that day! lol

Good luck with the showing! They are ALL gorgggeous dogs!!!

Thanks everyone! Glad you enjoyed them. I'll try to stick around and post a bit more, too. :)

Sorry to hear about Spring. That's got to be hard to deal with.

It was at first, mostly because I never wanted to rehome/return a dog ever again. And because I knew I would probably never get updates on her again, since her breeder and I are not really on good terms. But I'm glad I did it -- it was absolutely the right decision for all involved. Last I heard (in Aug) she's now living in Victoria, BC and hopefully doing well. Unfortunately I haven't recieved any updates since.

Somehow I missed that you moved into dobies.

Yep, we've had a Doberman in our lives since 2005. Four of them now, except one was more of a foster of sorts (Keeva) -- she lived with us for a while, but we didn't adopt her as she wasn't a good fit. Our first was Winston, who passed in January this year of cancer, then we got Keira in early 2008, and Ripley earlier this June. Dance is my "just for fun" dog, haha. After experiencing two Tollers at once, I don't think I'd do it again -- just one at a time is good. I've realized (especially in this last year) that I'm truly a Dobe person, eventhough I tried to convince myself otherwise in the past, lol.

So thrilled to see your crew! Thought of you when i went to Purina's Dog Show and sat at the ring with the Tollers! it was jammed pack! They were gorgeous and I mentioned Dance and Tango to the girl next to me. Glad all is well and i hope you keep posting pictures1

Oh My God, I am stunned to the core at how beautiful they are. I can't even express to you how much I love your two Dobe kids, they are gorgeous Devon! As is Dance, she's such a sweetie, that smile is brilliant! :D They are so regal looking. I too am sorry about Spring - she was gorgeous.

I forgot to ask when I posted earlier- is that a id tattoo on Ripley in the seventh picture down?

11-21-2009, 06:29 PM
Ripley and Keira are beautiful in the sunlight and Dance ... I just love Dance! I want to reach through the monitor and give them each some petting and hugs! Ripley, good luck at your show and hope it leads to many more!

11-21-2009, 07:43 PM
Thanks again you guys. :)

I forgot to ask when I posted earlier- is that a id tattoo on Ripley in the seventh picture down?

Yep, when his breeder crops her puppies they're all tattooed at the same time.
