Wow ... it's been a while! (August 2009 to be exact!)

Hi everyone!

My goodness, it's certainly been awhile and I've missed this board. So much has happened since 2009 - my baby, my pride and joy Apollo lost his battle to cancer at the young age of 5 two years ago. I haven't had another doberman since, however I'm still going strong in the rescue world (eleven years now to be exact!) and work exclusively with BrokenDobe rescue. I've been divorced and am in a very happy and healthy relationship now. The motto "everything happens for a reason" is certainly true.

Anyways, I'm not sure how many senior posters are still on here, but to the old and new ... hi! Glad to visit again!

Leigha

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your loss of Apollo, he was so handsome. Love the red dobes. Glad to hear you are in a happy place now.
The motto "everything happens for a reason". Boy isn't that the truth.

I remember seeing you (well, Apollo really, because he's a red and I have a red) from when I was lurking, before I signed up and started chatting. Sorry to hear about Apollo. Apollo was a handsome guy, you really gotta love those reds. Not that I'm biased or anything...

Welcome back!

Thank you all ... it's good to be back! It's been a while since I've rescued a dobe lately - been working with a lot of GSD's as well as Italian Mastiffs but hopefully one will come around soon.
