Happy Birthday, Toadie!

Toad turned the big 11 today. After 55 years of dogs (most of them Dobermans) this boy is the only one of my Dobes to make it to 11 (the Aussie was a couple of weeks shy of 13 when I lost him to lymphoma)

Congratulations big guy--I hope I have you with me for several more years...

Toad is Ch Foxfire's Gold Toed Monster CD BN RE OA AXJ NF CGC ROM BFL01 LC11L

And we wish his litter brother, Ean, a happy birthday too--and many more.

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS from us!! I hadn’t realized that Toad was still with us and 11 is a grand age. I wish you several more years with him.

And yes, a pic would be good.

Woot! Grandson McCoy says: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOAD! So does cousin Sheriff. BTW, I figured out Sheriif and Toad's relationship..... Sheriff is a Jet dog, which makes his grandma Jade. Jade is a full sib to Toads mommy, I believe. (Etta-J?).

Wow... 11 years LC11L. So nice!!! And we are seeing a lot of longevity from some Foxfire dogs. Makes me so happy. Heck, unless I am mistaken Jet will be 11 also in a few months. Gotta love it.

My guess is that we will be wishing the old boy another happy birthday next year at this time.

Edit to say: I love that folks are asking you for photos! Might as well be asking for a hologram. Time to upgrade everything.....

He's definitely still with me--Melbrod, and says many thanks for the card (he likes those stars).

And Dax--I love fireworks so thanks for those...

@ John--yup, you got the relationship right--Jet's mom Jade is one of Toad's mom's litter sisters (and yes--Etta J).

And along with the longevity--this is a fawn Champion with an assortment of performance titles AND he's still got most of his hair. And lots of lipomas--we'd pass on the miscellaneous lumps but people have now taken up asking e how old he is because he isn't bald so they figure he must be young.

<G> And he's definitely still a good looking boy!

Definitely my dog, Sam--thanks for posting it. It's one of my favorite ring shots of Toad--and it's almost 10 years old--that was his first major and I'd been showing Dobes to Edd Bivin for years--never had anything he liked well enough to put up for points. When I was putting the entries in I sent his handler a note--"He's Edd's type but what does Edd think of fawns?"

No one seemed to know--but as it turned out Edd Bivin proved to be entirely colorblind--if the Doberman was the type he liked best and overall quality was good it didn't matter what color the Doberman was.

Toad went Winners Dog and Best of Winners, his blue litter sister, Easton went Winners Bitch, and Cupid (GCH Ch Foxfire's Love Monster CD ROM--who is a pedigree litter mate to them--same sire and out of Classy, a litter sister to Jade and Etta J) went Best of Breed.
