Greetings from the left hand Portland (the one in Oregon).

Tell us more about Lexi-what color, is she, English bred or ?. Have you had Dobes before?

Hi Everyone,

Lexi is Black and Tan and she indeed is UK bred, Lexi's parents were also bred in the UK but from Serbian imports.

This is my first Doberman. We had a rough first 2 weeks, Lexi had worms when she arrived which I found out after 2 days! The dry food she was on from the breeder didn't agree with her so we had problems with diarrhea and really bad wind, over the last 5 weeks I have worked really hard and managed to get all this under control which I am so happy about.

I haven't figure out how to upload photo's yet but will work it out i'm sure.

Mark

The easiest way to post pictures here is to use an online photo host like flickr or imgur. If you decide to use flickr we have a tutorial to show how:

Oh boy, lucky you--here's a little tip. It may not have been the food that didn't agree with Lexi--change of water is often the cause of diarrhea in puppies who have changed location--(as in from the breeder to you--and sometimes the difference in water can only be a few miles when the change involves processed lake vs well water). The minerals in the water can take awhile to get used to.

I'm no help with uploading photos but there are people here who are and there is the link that Melbrod posted which I hear is very helpful.

Welcome! And congrats on your puppy. I'm glad it sounds like you've got her tummy issues figured out. That can be so stressful!

Hi Everyone

My first real question.

Lexi will be 4 month old on Wednesday of this week. I have been walking her twice a day totaling around 5 miles, each walk is around 50 minutes. I have been told this is too much while her joints are growing really fast and have been advised I should only be walking for around 20 minutes at a time.

any advice welcome.
