Your sign off says it all.

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.

melbrod I do like those older crops better than the show crops today. They've just gotten too long and often flippy these days. IMHO Perhaps that's sacrilegious to say on a dobe forum??

Beaumont67 Mrs Bea England (Crediton, ON) was one of Canada's top breeders, mid 1950-77.
- we got puppy pick, last litter in 1977
- Lloyd and Bea passed in their 80's, soon after

^^ Mrs Bea was called Mrs. Doberman
- she told us, she probably saw 4,000 Dobe's in her lifetime
- never seen a bad one, only a bad owner

- former Amy from Montreal, her lineage went back to the Kakanas kennel / breed for outstanding Temperament first

But I remember she told us, Bea designed her show crop templates & taught the young town Vet how to crop.
- and he would become the crop expert on Dobes, in the province / until he retired

Tanya was Kakanas Diamond Lil...her dad name was FanDango, she turned down $4k
for him, before stud proven...he was truly magnificent.
- pup Tanya's mom was Jackie

Our girls 1977 Crop.

melbrod Wow, Bug, you've got a past (like we didn't know that).

SD, that's the Jerk Cat, right? I just saw that--cute write-up, but I'm not sure it will get the cat adopted.

So here's some fun stuff:





That last should say either Minnesota or South Dakota, from what I hear here. (homophones)

I suppose I should wait til a big storm rolls through to make these really apropos, but.....

Cressrb I should have titled it, 'An oldie but goodie'. I have lots of those, too.
01-22-2020 08:58 PM
Cressrb Is this the right one?

I do believe that is where 'Bea' got her ears cropped! I know it was in Bothell.

I found 'Marc' on Dobequest and I can include it here only if you want me to.
Sure, go ahead and post the picture--it has to be one of the two that show up occasionally--there's one of him winning the puppy group at six months with me scowling at camera and one with a man stacking him he'd have been four or five in that shot. He'd just won the working group at Sacramento.

For the record, he was a tail clamper with a short dock--so he looks like he's got a really round croup in that puppy picture--he didn't but what did I know about clamped tails back then--NOTHING.

LOL--You and Kenny--you both better keep reminding me to tell you a story--before my memory goes along with my sciatic nerve.

I will copy and let MB read it. I tell her she will do great with Dobermans cause she kinda looks like a Doberman, with her black hair and
being tall and slim. lol. That is a compliment I think.
Sounds like one to me--tall and slim in the Dobe ring is an asset--you can still move the dogs.

I started with an interest in showing when living in Seattle and purchasing my first Great Dane. Clair Lincoln of Hightone prefix? You might
recognize being from that area. That was in the mid 70's
Wow! When I started showing Dobes, Clair Lincoln was breeding under "Lincoln" But that was in the 50's and 60's. She and her husband, Hazel Mage (Laurado) and Johnny Long (Long-Crest--professional handler) were the local breeders and there was Dollymount in Spokane (the Ranney's). Those were the ones I remember from my neck of the woods. I was raised in Seattle and was there until I moved to Sacramento in 1963 and later to Los Angeles. My friend (my college roommate, actually) who had the Dane puppy and introduced me to dogs shows had a couple of Danes--a fawn male (who died young from kidney disease) was bred by Hazel Mage as was the later Dane, the one I knew, Thane, a brindle male who finished his championship owner handled.

Here's a weird little backstory for you. By the time I got my first Dobe my folks had moved out to Bothell and their vet and mine, were at the Bothell Kenmore Vet clinic--a mixed practice (large and small animals. Dr Venema did crops--in fact he cropped both Clair's Dane's and Hazel Mage's Danes--and he did the recrop on my Dobe--we had a long discussion about why I hadn't taken him to them in the first place. Well, duh! Because I didn't know they cropped, and I sure as heck didn't realize that they were doing most of the show crops on Dane's who came from all over the place to get puppies cropped.

Most croppers who can do a good Dane crop can do a good Doberman crop.

Someone from the Doberman Club here suggested she join UKC and enter shows to use as fun matches.
Be my guest--and that's a good suggestion--showing in UKC--and for that matter UDC--are good practice places--I just never managed to live in an area where there were many, or at all, shows.

Those weekend fun matches were always so helpful, but they have gone the way of.
<VBG> Yeah, when I started there were lots of fun matches around--in fact my first dog and I went to an all breed fun match the week before his first AKC show and he went Best in Match--the handler who judged half of the match (working, hound and sporting and Best in Match) was very anxious to talk to me about getting a handler for my puppy. At the time I was much too ignorant to figure it out--my breeder had to explain why all these handlers wanted to talk to me about the futility of trying to actually show my own dog.

But then once your dog had points most of the match regulations said you couldn't continue to show them in matches--and he got that 5 point major when he was 6 months and three weeks.

Thx again, Bug. BTW, have any pictures of your first Doberman?
I do--but I'll need to get them rescanned--there might be a picture of him on DobeQuest--I can't remember but he was Am/Can Ch Mars of the Gladiators (and before anyone asks--no--he was not oversized--his breeders first champion was Ch Cloud's Gladiator and Jim thought that was a good kennel name for a Doberman. It was a lot of years before Gladiator, King, Warlock came to be associated with oversized dogs.

Beaumont67 Saturday was first crank of the John Deere 318 key...on Saturday.
- waited till the Country Snow Plow, packed a big drift @ end of driveway
- now it started raining, an the heavy snow...got 5x heavier
- frequent snow blower Jam-ups...equals PITA
- and to top it off, ran out of Fuel & my Jerry can was empty
- so after I started blowing out the driveway, had to run into city for 12L of gas

Now its 19^F, relatively warm out & sunny / wind chill factor = NIL.

Great video, Doc. If you like helicopters (like me) you'll enjoy this video of Erikson: Extreme Helicopters (Sikorsky SkyCranes) doing logging, firefighting and TV tower construction....

LOL, you weren't kidding!

Cold weather in Florida brings chance of 'iguanas falling from the trees,' forecasters warn

Cressrb Mel, 39 deg. here this morning, too. Sooo nice. I didn't have to break any ice for the chickens. I think we share similar weather patterns.
Altho' I have to say I have never heard anyone speak of a Chinook wind in Utah.
