Devastating news...

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.

I don't even have words. The doberman community will all mourn the loss of someone with such great advice and awesome dogs. We are a little less from her loss. Rest in Peace with your furkids.

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.

Oh lord!!! Of all the people to lose.

I am heartsick about this--I've known Cheryl for a good many years and regard her as a good friend--and like Elaine, will miss her more than I can say.

This is such an unfortunate loss. She had such a great impact to this board alone and I can only imagine how great her impact was to the entire Doberman community. My thoughts are with her husband, family, and friends.

This is absolutely devastating. I am in total shock over this, what a terrible tragedy. The doberman community has lost a wonderful friend. Rest in Peace Cheryl and her dogs. I wish her husband peace, gosh I feel so awful about this.

I too will light candles for her and her dogs. She was an amazing figure on the board and I learned a lot from her. RIP

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.

Oh no! I am in total shock! My heart goes out to her family and friends. I for one will miss her great posts. I learned a ton from her.

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.

I can't even imagine... My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends, and wishing her husband the strength he needs to make it through this.
