Maybe a stupid question...

Do any of you miss your dog(s) when youíre at work? Because, well, I do.

Mocha is such an integral part of my life when Iím home. From the second I wake up, till I leave for work, from the second I come home from work, till we go to sleep (she sleeps on a pillow beside the bed, on my side), she is by my side.
A soon as I come home from work, she grabs her ball and waits for me at the top of the stairs, and if the weather is decent, we go out to play/train, usually before I even change clothes. Then we go inside and she comes into my home office with me, and lays down on her pillow while I check email and whatever else. If I get up, she gets up, and follows me into whatever room I go. If I dare go out on the back deck for a smoke (Yeah, I know) without her, sheíll stand at the door and look heartbroken (so I usually just take her with me). Doesnít matter what I do or where I go, she has to be near or by me. Whenever I go out somewhere, I take her with me, if at all possible. I probably talk to her and enjoy her company more than I do most humans, lol

I guess by now Iím so used to having her near me, that when Iím at work, I actually miss her.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

I know exactly how you feel. Certainly not a stupid question because I miss my boy whenever I'm at work. He's become my world now and I barely go out for social events with friends etc. because of it and if I do, I feel so guilty.

Once when I went out after work and came home, I sat on the bed and Kaiser gave me the biggest hug I've ever received from him -- head resting on my shoulder for a long time, before he laid down on my lap and wouldn't let me move. I cried lol.

Yes, I wish someone would pay me to just stay home with the dogs and read, but...

I do have a nice setup where I take the dogs to work with me one day a week and also work from home one day a week. Both of these perks also have their challenges, and I do like having at least a couple days where I'm not at the mercy of the doggies all the time.

If I could, I would, trust me. But I work on a large military base, in the IT field so our office has all sorts of people coming and going all day, dropping off or picking up computers, or coming by to have their accounts checked or worked on and some of them wouldn't appreciate being met at the door by a Doberman

Yep, I miss Indy too. He greets me with a nose poke and the zoomies when I get home. Makes me laugh no matter how my day went.

I am so glad to hear that there are people out there like me!!! I absolutely miss Riddick when I am away from home. I try to take him everywhere with me because I hate leaving him at home. Everywhere is pretty dog friendly here so he often goes to Lowe's, home depot, and the mall with me.

When I can't take him with and I come home, I love that he zooms around the room. He isn't allowed to jump on people so he jumps/hops around the room.

I love that he is a huge cuddler (he sleeps in bed with me when my husband is gone). He nudges the blanket until I let him under. And he will nudges me so that he can roll over and be the little spoon XD Or if he is hot, he still has to have his head on my legs. He is my best friend in many ways.

I can identify with your feelings totally. I am home all the time so we are always together. I boarded her one time and was miserable the whole time worrying about her.
My daughter, who is single and teaches school daytimes, tells me she has no social life anymore as she won't leave them in the eveinings.

Ok first the only stupid questions are those that are never asked.
second yes you are weird.
third so am I.
That is part of the real joy of having a Doberman and truly getting to know your dog and enjoying your dog. The truly weird people are the ones who buy a Doberman and never take the time to experience it to the full.
My first Doberman always rode in the front seat of my car. If someone wanted to ride with me they either sat in the back or listened to Samson growl softly in their ear the whole time. (wasn't threatening them but letting them know he was displeased, he would try to do it quietly so they could hear and I couldn't. so I played along like I couldn't hear him)

I let them ride up front but my boy likes to neck...where he takes his neck and lays over your neck it can be quite the thrill if your into it. If you are his special someone and we are piking you at the airport

Count me weird too and I am able to take mine to work with me whenever I want (self-employed). As I age, I prefer to spend time with my dogs over most people. And like RMcIntyre, I feel sorry for those that miss out on the full Doberman experience. I treasure what mine has taught me because he has made me a better human in the process.

So much entertainment.

This. ^^

I have an older Escape and I put the back seats down so Mocha can come up and be close, she also has the habit of either sticking her face in mine or laying her head on my shoulder while I'm driving.

My neighbors have 2 Akitas, a male and a young female and I feel so sorry for those dogs. I never see anyone training them, playing with them or socializing in any way. On the weekends, the minute the neighbors wake up, the dogs get put in the backyard and stay out pretty much all day and don't get let back in until night. The second someone comes home on the weekdays, same thing. I told my wife that if they wanted lawn ornaments, they should have bought some pink flamingos or some of those ceramic garden gnomes, not dogs.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

My wife & I never raised our son with baby sitters & our dobes equally had a life full of human attention / without ever seeing the inside of a kennel - it wasn't even a small inconvenience.
- we cuddle & talk to them like a human child & we get the most love & respect from our girls
- at night when they sleep in the master bed, I've learned to feel for their heart beat (started when former Amy was old, and a sound sleeper)
- so until Dad falls asleep, I often give them a soft love pat with my finger tips
- sequenced to the rhythm of their heart beat
^^ Very calming & a bond building technique...even under the covers...he-he.
- our dobes always follow me around, unless Mom is in the kitchen...than its a no contest

When I did a drywall crack repair job for a friend, Kelly was happy to rest in the front seat of my 4Runner (parked in driveway) while Dad worked.
- the beauty in taking dobe to job site, they realize Dad has to come back to SUV
- they seem to be happier, than staying behind in a empty home bored
When Amy was alive, we were on our retirement home reno. job site for a few years / she would often rest, in a strategic location, that sill allowed her eyes to track my movements...if I ever got out of site, soon my girl was nearby me.

Aw this is a sweet post -- I find that my hubby and I are the same with Zuko. From the moment we wake up to when we leave for work, home for luch, then after work, he is with us. He is our life, our child, our son. I wish I could take him to work with me, of course having a ferocious looking Doberman in the showroom of a car dealership may scare away customers!!

I truly, cannot wait until the day I get to be home full-time with him, hopefully in a year or two I'll be able. I feel as though he is happier with his people around, and so are we

Thks, that JD 318 was made in 1992 & still mint - original paint & low hours.
- photo was taken, several years ago after I got it home

Dad was occupied in the detached garage while senior Amy would sun bathe on the paved driveway.
- on nice summer days / but this time, a new green toy occupied the driveway
- since she protects the property & loved ones anyway
- what better place to lay down for an afternoon nap, right beside the borrowed Ski-Doo trailer
- she always impressed us, my stuff was her stuff...

Our bond was almost unreal & she was my true heart dog / a gift from heaven, we shared a loving life with:
- when she was several months old, I stopped Amy puppy from getting brutally attacked by a pair of GSD's that got out of a back yard
- I called puppy who darted through the K9's and behind Dads legs to safety
- next I offered my forearm up, to head-off the advancing GSD attack
- I was calm, confident & projected "someone gonna die here, and it won't be me or the pup"
- I'm sure little Amy comprehended that Dad saved her young life by putting my very own body, in harms way.
Years later Mom was about to be seriously attacked, by a GSD/Lab mix.
- and Amy came running to guard Mom, and sub-missed the bigger dog
Everything about raising a dog, is BUILDING A BOND & SHARING TRUST !!

And below photo conjures up another favorite reno. story, former Amy was not content, with that 4x8ft sheet of plywood blocking her view of Dad driving up the driveway...LOL:

Fond memories with Amy at the newer place, in her final year:
- like the day she escaped the house and waited contently for her Dad on the front cement porch, while I was off with the carpenter having a quick lunch for half an hour / we drive up the drive way, and there she is laying outside
(almost made me question, why I locked her behind the front door, in the first place)
- or the time she let one particular man (of questionable ethics) out of his car in the drive way but stopped him dead in his tracks, so he couldn't get to the front door...until I called her off & praised her for protecting me from potential business evils...

Amy looked for and found an escape route (back left door open), because a sheet of plywood covered the front window.
- and she couldn't monitor the place or properly watch for her good buddy Dad, while I was briefly gone for lunch

I had a little red female that used to like riding in my truck across my shoulders so her feet were on the seat but her head was at the side window. Not the most comfortable ride for me, But I loved it.

They wouldn't be to happy if you bring her since Doberman are, among Rottweilers, Chows, Pit Bulls and Akitas not allowed to be in military housing or offices. You know that they are "really aggressive".

With that said, I am allowed to walk Max on post (Ft. Leonard Wood) and take him to the dog park (which I don't.....nasty). I had to register him with the post vet and he had to have one additional immunization. How times change, when we lived on post from 85 until 92 we had our first Dobie and nobody cared.

Now to your question. My wife and I both miss Max when he is not around. My #1 hobby (muscle cars) is now #2 as Max moved up into the #1 spot. He is also really Velcro and wants us nearby when we are home. Luckily he has zero issues when we do leave do go out or shopping. It is really bad when we go to Germany for two weeks and have to board him.....we both miss him terribly. He is just like a kid to us.

I work on FT Campbell, and so far no one has ever said a word when I bring Mocha on post (not sure if no one cares or if they don't know?). We usually go out to the boonies on the weekend where no one else ventures, and go for nice long walks in the woods. If I remember, I'll check into what breeds are restricted on post.

On second thought, this may be one of those "better to ask for forgiveness than permission" type deals

Oh good, it's not just me! Usually we worry about the dogs suffering from separation anxiety, but I'M just as guilty of it. I'm the kind of person that would take the dog everywhere if I could. He's so soft and sweet, you never know when you might need a hug after all

I take my boy to work almost every day! I do miss when he is not around!

The down side is that he is a velcro dog demands to be where i am so if he cant be he lets me know his displeasure and sometimes it is a emotion that i do not need to deal with at times. He is a bit high energy still and does not like the office now and has been treating it like a punishment place to be in their alone. My productivity is down some with him around.
The upside he is always with me and i have no worries about him. He is a fun guy to have around. No one barges into the office. He is a great judge of character , in fact the last person I hired came at a time when he was fired up and he was bouncing off the walls because he knew we were getting ready to have some fun. I saw her coming but could not let her know that his behavior was not directed toward her , most people who are not dog people would have went to the parking lot and sat in their car. She came in and calmed him down until i could speak with her..when can you start?

I'm pretty sure I have a harder time with me leaving in the morning than Mac does. But, I did just apply for a job that would allow me to bring him with me everyday... fingers crossed!
