I am so very sad today. We all have lost a doberman friend. Cheryl Gates, (Murraydobe) lost her life yesterday in a house fire. Her three dogs perished with her. The fire is under investigation and her husband is being treated for severe burns caused when he tried to get up to Cheryl and the dogs.
The doberman has lost it's clear and unwavering champion. Rest in peace my friend, I will miss you terribly, terribly, terribly.

This is a great loss to the doberman community, a lady with such great advice and knowledge in the doberman world.
I will miss her advice here on the forums and the advice she has given me.
RIP Cheryl and the dogs... I hope her husband makes a full recovery and my thoughts are with him and the family

Oh, no. I am in shock, and very sad. I hope her husband recovers from his physical injuries soon. I know it will take much longer for him to recover from the mental and emotional injuries.

I cannot even believe this news. Not only has the Doberman world lost a wonderful champion for the breed, but the world has lost a wonderful, kind soul. My thoughts are with her husband. What a complete tragedy.

I didn't know Cheryl, but I could tell she was an informed, knowledgeable advocate for the breed based solely on her posts here on DT.
Please share (with those of us who don't know much about her) some things she should be remembered and recognized for contributing to the Doberman world.
RIP Cheryl. May your beloved dogs always be at your side. My thoughts are with her husband's recovery.
