Not quite “new,” but an introduction!

Howdy to all here at DobermanTalk!

I’ve been lurking on these boards for a while (at least a year?), and finally got to the point of wanting to participate instead of just watch

A little about myself: I’m a veterinary student with a serious interest in the breed spanning the past few years, but sparked when I was very young and a dobe barked at me in the animal shelter. Strange, really, that one interaction with a young frustrated dog in the early 90s is what set it off. But here we are!

Being a student, I know I don’t have the time for a dog so I’m making do with a cat and a lot of research for the time being. And study breaks on DT, of course! The serious, realistic search for a puppy will possibly be starting soon, so I’ll probably have tons of questions for the forum in the upcoming months.

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Welcome to DT from Utah. Interesting about your one interaction with a Doberman that you didn't forget.
Mine started in 1968 when sitting in a restaurant in Seattle and a man outside was walking two Dobermans on a brace.
Just a gorgeous sight. I told my husband - someday I am going to have a dog just like that! And, I did forty years later!
Now we have three, so just a word of caution.

Welcome from Indiana ! Vet school huh ? V-Tech ? Purdue ? lol

I agree with Cressrb - lol - The first Dober I came across was Doc Downing's ! He lived up on a big hill - Every Sunday - I would ride my bike into Morristown to visit my Grandma that worked at the Kopper Kettle - she made the pies ! ( Sugar Cream !! ) Anyway - Ole Doc had the biggest Doberman in the world ! For a kid anyway - That BIG dog got to chasing me when I rode by ! Scared the holly BaJesus out of me - lol Before you get to Docs - there was another big hill - So when I got to it - I would stop on top and look over at Docs place - there that kid eater Doberman Sat ! Looking right at me - he was waiting for me - So I would peddle that bike as fast as I could and here came that Dober down the hill - He would run along side me barking and I was trying to haul azz - would get to the property line and he would turn and go back up the hill - It was nothing but a game to him - lol Even though he scared the crap out of me - 8 years latter - we had our first Doberman - that was close to 40 years ago - lol

Doc

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

Still working on figuring out how this particular forum operates, so my apologies if I mess up the formatting in replies.

@4x4bike ped I live in DFW when I'm not at school. So it's more like I spend a few weeks a year there, lol. (Also! You have Foxfire pups! They're one of my favorite breeders from the preliminary searching!)

@ECIN Nope, not V-Tech or Purdue! I'm a little weird about privacy, so I probably won't mention my school by name. I love your story!! When I moved house in middle school our new neighbor also had a dobe that would just silently watch me every time I rode my bike around the neighborhood. No idea what I would have done if he ran after me!
