Greetings from Kentucky

Hi! I'm Robin. I lost my very best friend, a German Doberman named Lady Gertie, less than two weeks ago. Gertie was 10 years old and it hurt me to the bone to see her age. I thought I couldn't go on when I lost her. I got up one morning last weekend and decided the best thing for me to do would be to get another. I checked with many Human Societies because I think rescue is better than purchasing. Also many pet adoption agencies and every place I could find online. I finally posted on Facebook and was contacted by a very nice man who had one 7 week old female left from his Doberman's first litter. He had meant to keep her, but when he saw my plea, he felt like he should let me have her. And even gave me a huge discount. I am so pleased with her; it was meant to be. I named her Gracious Hope, because I needed hope...I lost my father on November 30, and then my beloved Gertie the next week. I was devastated and very depressed. Her call name is Gracie, she turned 8 weeks old yesterday and has already learned "Sit". I'm now working on "stay" and "shake." She's very smart and has definitely given me a new hope in life. She is a little blessing. I'm glad I found this forum and am looking forward to being a part of it as Gracie grows. Even though she isn't my first Doberman, there's still a lot to learn here. It's great to meet you guys!

Hi Gracies Mom,
I live in Kentucky as well. Love the name. Gracie was my Maternal Grandmothers name. My Judah is right at 18 months old and is a real clown. Post some pics when you get the time. We love pictures around here.
You will have a great time raising your girl, I am sure. Enjoy this time with her because, you turn around and they are grown. Merry Christmas. Best of Luck!

I am also sorry to hear about the loss of your father and your beloved Gertie. Hopefully your new pup will help your heart heal.

Thank you, leakaufman! I will post pictures; in fact, I somehow posted the same one twice and would like to delete one of them and can't figure out how. My husband Cleo and I are thrilled with our new little girl. We will miss Gertie forever. She was my first Doberman; my husband has had several. It's very nice to meet you; what area of KY are you from? I'm near Somerset.

Welcome!

Her ears look so soft and silky. Are you planning to crop them?

No, the cropped ears look nice, but I wouldn't put a dog through that. My last Doberman's ears were floppy and I'm okay with them just as they are. She'll just be flop-eared Gracie.

I live in Louisville. My sister has my girl's littermate and she lives one street over. Her girls name is Jacklyn. Your puppy is very pretty. She has sweet eyes. I love them at this age, they are just so cute!
Judah is the first Doberman I have had since my teenage years and therefore we really did not know anything. We were fortunate to have found this forum. It has provided us with a wealth of information. There are several people in Louisville and Northern Kentucky that we have met this past year who are very experienced, reputable Doberman people who have been a help to us. I think you will find this forum to be a great help to you as well.
