Englishman and his Dobermans :)

Hi All

28 yr old English fella looking to meet some Doberman folk over here in the US. I am living in the Lake counties so would be interested to chat to and perhaps meet up for Doby play dates.

Been transferred here from the UK with company. My only stipulation was that I was able to bring my Doberman Ruby!!! We arrived in January and are starting to find out feet now the sun is shining and we can get out for lots of walks!

New cropped Dobe puppy arriving at the weekend and am terrified about the posting process. Been reading and watching Demo's for 4 months now!! Am sure all will be well!

Get in touch if you could offer me any advice on the whole ear posting process. Any magic invalueable tips would be appreciated!

Stu

Welcome form Missouri - Probably the most important thing to be aware of is not to wrap those ears tight. You do not wan t to cut off the blood circulation. There are several threads on ear posting with excellent information. You should not have any problems.

In the UK, I am from Durham City up North and was a member of the North Eastern Counties Dobe Society. Was living and working in Royal Leamington Spa before I took this placement over here in Chicago.

The Dobe Club folks know me well and have a few of them following my puppy progress on Facebook! Looking forward for when i return home with my posh cropped girl to show off at the weekly meeting in Darlington.

Here are a couple of phots of ZELDA before and after the crop. I am confident I can manage, and could not have done more research if I had tried. Bonnie at Thundervalleydobes in WI has said she will help me if I get stuck. I was just hoping to run into a local expert on here to assess my work and to tell me I was doing it correctly, to save me a 6hr round trip to WI.
