Soon to Be Dobie Mom and Dad in Minnesota

Hello!
About three more weeks and my significant other and I will be new owners of a pretty little girl we are naming Nani
(hopefully she likes her name!)
I have photos of her in my signature and avatar but why not i am going to post them here too!
Cant wait to bring her home!!!
i am open to any advice you might have
I found this group by simply doing research.
Thank you

1st pic - Nani and her Siblings at 1 week old
2nd pic - Nani and her Brother Diesel at 2 weeks old
3rd and 4th picture - Nani at 3 weeks old
5th picture - last Sunday, Nani and siblings, 4 weeks old. She's the little fatty that's sitting on the cookie sheet covered in food. Thats my girl!

We visit her at least once a week (dont worry we are not pestering. They are family friends lol)

Proud Minnesotan! Born and raised here. Will be a Doberman owner soon!
I have seriously considered moving to a warmer state for Nani... But i think she will come to love this state as much as we do

Haha! i keep telling my Significant other that dogs are like kids and a lot of work. I feel like he has no idea how much of a handful children and pets are. We will see!
I have always wanted a larger dog, and this will be the perfect way to see how he and i raise another life together

Dr. Anderson has had Dobermans for many, many years. I know her personally and you are in good hands. She would be an excellent resource for you as a vet and can answer a lot of questions about the breed for you.

Thank you! this makes me feel even better about the whole thing. We are 100% sure we want to crop i just hate the idea of the little babe being in unnecessary pain. I am excited to meet Janine

I'll say ditto for MeadowCat's post--I don't know Janine personally but we've been on Dobe lists and forums for years she really knows Dobes and is very down to earth and helpful. The kind of vet everone with a Dobe always hopes to have.

Yes Janine and I have known each other for a long time. We spoke last at the Bloomington confirmation claseses, before all the Covid stuff hit. She is also quite the photographer as well, and was the one who took the pic for the calendar entry I did for month of June 2021. Our girl in the profile pic has passed on sadly, but yes, I agree you are in good hands. -Larry
