Boy, ain't THAT the truth! Ninny was very sweet, too, but big and scary LOOKING. I remember once (in the same house as the ripped kitchen floor), a guy came to look at the furnace, which had stopped working. There was a foyer section right inside the front door, and to the right was a closet that housed the furnace, to the left was the living room and the rest of the house, and straight ahead was floor to ceiling glass, looking out on the back deck. I put Ninja outside while the furnace guy was there, but being right there in the foyer, and Ninja being just on the other side of that glass wall, they could see each other.

Furnace guy says, "MY, that's a big dog!"

Ninja jumps straight up, head almost touching the gutter, and back down again. Tiny brain thinking, "New person! Wanna PLAY!"

Furnace guy looks sideways at the glass wall, surely wondering if that dog could come through the glass or not.

Ninja jumps straight up again. And again. And again!

Furnace guy keeps working but cutting glances to his left to make sure that vicious man-eater was still on his own side of the glass wall. He wanted so badly to be done and out of there and I'm sure if he's still alive today, he tells his grandkids about the Amazing Flying Attack Dog that almost ate him one day back in 1985.

It was so hard for me not to laugh out loud, though. I did my best, because the guy was really scared, even though I TOLD him Ninny was harmless and just wanted to play. Somehow I don't think he believed me...

Hi guys. Sugar here. I've been busy lately. The weather has been weird. One day it was freezing out. Mama put Coco's coat on me to try it out. It felt a little weird and it's a little big on me but I was warm and toasty in it. Good thing I look good in purple!! Why waste a perfectly good coat and it matches all my hand me down purple collars I have. Mama says when I stop growing I will get my own special collar. It may be purple too since it's my colour. An old granny said I look really sharp in purple because it looks good against my shiny black fur. I puffed up my chest for her.

Today was a stressful day. I somehow hurt my left back leg after dad went to work and mama came home. I couldn't get off my bed because it hurt too much. Mama was worried and started to cry because leg problems make her very upset . Mama called my vet and they offered to come help mama get me in the car. Dad was going to leave work. But since I'm such a good boy and mama helped me up, we got out of the house into the car. Once at the vet I was thrilled to see my doctor and the girls so I gave everyone kisses and they checked me out good. My vet knows that mama worries so much about our leg problems.

I have a soft muscle injury so I have to rest and take gabapentin for the next 3 days so I can recover. We were in luck that we have some of Coco's gabapentin leftover so I'm on that now. I'm so lucky that I had such a good big sister who left all of her things for me to have.

Night night DT.



Mama here...sleep well my sweet boy. I'm so glad you only pulled something in your leg and it's not more serious. I couldn't bear to think about something more serious.

You are right that there is more carpet to be replaced

And Doc you were so right about these boys being completely different than the girls!! That's why I was so worried yesterday when he wasnt his usual exuberant, bouncy self. I knew he was in a lot of pain. When you Google why a puppy can't stand it is the stuff of nightmares so mama just had to call the vet and get in to see the professionals.

I'm so thankful for the wonderful relationship with our vets office and the offer to come over and help me. Everyone breathed a sigh of relief when he came walking into the office because he was upright and walking!!

Coco, hope Sugar gets well soon. That medicine sure seemed to knock him out good!

FYI- Your picture links in previous pages of this thread got broken after the 3/3 post so most after that not displaying? Did you move the images around on the hosting site, as this will cause a new location to be assigned to pics? It's ashamed, as this thread is so enjoyable to read with narration from Sugar and the great pics.

------------------------------------------------------------------------


A few words to Sugar, from Spock:


Hey, DoberBro Sugar, you're a good boy for helping your Mama stay entertained and occupied so she doesn't dwell on the past and get teary eyed. You've also heeded my instruction from previous post and mastered the Dober Couch Lounging technique very well, grasshopper!

https://www.dobermantalk.com/puppy-c...ml#post4071979


Next, we'll move on to "Squirrel Detection & Chasing Techniques"
Prime directive is to put on a good show for your humans while chasing the rascally rodents, but don't hurt your legs while doing so! You've apparently got some more training to do in this area...

That's so strange SD because when I go back in the thread I can see pics on all the pages but your link doesn't. Maybe a glitch?

Sugar has paid attention to Spocks lessons and is becoming a proper doberboy. Just waiting for his brain to start growing!!

He has just noticed squirrels recently and barks ferociously at them to protect his family and property from those recent invaders. No chasing right now. He has to rest that leg so luckily the meds make him sleepy so his injury can heal.

Okay, I can see them all now, but up to an hour ago, when I last posted here, most were not displaying, just first page and last page of thread pics. Some temp server glitch?

New Puppy

Hey All. Reading the post on the new puppy, Sugar. Congrats! So exciting. Wondering how many of you crate your new puppies at first. We have always done that. Do any of you let the puppy sleep with you right from the start?

Edited to add: Pamlocke, I started a new thread with your puppy crating question. You can find it here:
https://www.dobermantalk.com/puppy-c...ml#post4092833
Anyone wanting to respond to that part, please go over there with your posts.

Hey DT Sugar here. Sorry we've been away but we had a death in the family and we've been busy. It happened overseas and my auntie and uncles had to look after me while mama and dada dealt with things. I got properly spoiled while they looked after me. They were worried that I wouldn't eat my food so they all handfed me my raw food. Mama is still laughing about that because she doesn't do that for me. Mama said maybe my brain is starting to grow since I was able to manipulate them. I don't know what that means but I did miss mama while she was gone.

Prior to that I was playing with my friends and one of them bit me really hard at the bottom of my ear. It was so bad I had to get stitches. She's not my friend anymore. I've been in that blasted cone again so I couldn't scratch my ears. I also ripped part of my paw pad off and want to lick the rest of it off.

Mama says boys are so different than girls. Coco never did any of this stuff!! I can't help it. My brain hasn't grown yet. One day I will be the best boy. Mama says I try my best.

I love to play with mine and Coco's toys but I'm pretty rough with them. You know how well I did practicing my skills on the carpet removal . Mama has ordered me a Bullymake box so we shall see how their guarantee holds up for destroyed toys. It has landed in Canada so I hope it gets here soon. I'm so excited for new toys!!

Uncle Doc asked for some pics but we only have a few to show since we've been so busy.



I love my handmedown coat. It keeps me warm. I'm too busy exploring when I'm out for mama to get a good pic.



The blasted cone!! But it's so much bigger now!!

Talk to you soon. I've got to get ready for bed. Good night DT.

Thanks Mel. It's not a very flattering pic of Sugar but its apropos of our life together sometimes. He certainly can be a pain in my butt!!

Oh, Sugar, I have been missing you! I'm so sorry your mom and dad were sad and had to go away for a while, but it sounds like you had fun anyway. Manipulation is a very valuable skill, and I'm glad you're learning it at such an early age. You will be a Force of Nature before you know it! I'm very sorry you have to wear the cone again, but it'll come off soon, I promise. You have to be a good boy, though. Oh, and by the way, nice butt!

I've never heard of a Bullymake box, but I can gather by the name that it must be something supposedly indestructible? I remember going to a pet supply store once when Ninja was young, trying to find a toy he couldn't destroy in 24 hours. He got bored with the Nylabones, and Kong hadn't come out yet (or I hadn't heard of them). His favorite toy was one of those rope things with the knots on both ends, but he destroyed every one I got him in hours, literally hours. So anyway, this nice young man told me that THIS rope (two or three times bigger than the standard ones) was guaranteed unchewable, and that if Ninja COULD destroy it they'd give me my $12 back. (Back then, that was a lot for a chew toy.) So I got it and took it home. The next day, I brought a paper bag full of strings back to the pet store, and got my $12 back. It took him all night, but he did succeed in completely disassembling that indestructible knot toy.

I finally just got him a selection of different sized Nylabone toys and that was that. Funny story on the side: His very favorite Nylabone lasted forever (I still have the lump of chewed whatever-that-stuff-is) and by the time he was 10 or 11 it was down to the size of maybe half a hotdog, but man, he loved to chew on that. One night I was on the couch watching TV after dinner with a glass of milk on the end table, Ninny was lying on the floor by my feet gnawing that piece of yummy Nylabone, and he flipped it into the air. I watched it in slow motion, unable to react, just watching it arc through the air, bits of slobber flying off (also in slow motion), tumbling over and over, until it landed SQUARELY in my glass of milk, lengthwise, never even TOUCHING the sides of the glass. It was a perfect "10!" The look on his face was priceless - "WHERE IS MY BONE??" but the look on mine might have been better. I'm not sure.

I know that's a gross story (yes, I did go get a fresh glass of milk), but I sincerely hope that Sugar gives you as many fond and silly memories as Ninja gave me. Kiss his boo-boo for me, and tell him I love him.

Good morning. Mama here. I'm so glad Sugar's antics bring a smile to you Lannie and Doc. He brings smiles to mine and also sometimes frustration lol but I can see that his brain is really working and trying to do the right thing. I always tell him "just try my boy".

I will tell you a secret. I was afraid to love him at first. I most definitely liked him but I felt kind of guilty about loving him. I'm still grieving Coco and Tiki too. But I had a revelation that Sugar has big shoes to fill because Coco was my heart. It's not fair for me to have these expectations of him because although his body is big, he is still all puppy. Coco was the best girl but she also was mischievous as a puppy but you forget these things when they are adult dogs and so well behaved.

I absolutely love Sugar and tell him all the time now. He wags his little nub and kisses mamas cheek. I wanted to share that with you guys because it's been a pivotal part of my grieving and moving through the process.

I will definitely kiss Sugar and tell him Aunt Lannie loves him!

OMG, what HAPPENED? This was a week ago and I didn't see it! No forum notification for some reason. Boo!

Anyway, no I did NOT slug back that slobbery milk. That remnant of bone had been all over the house, outside, under the stove... uh-uh, I have my principles, and although I loved that boy with all my heart and would literally do anything for him, slobber-drinking was not in my plan.

Second-mama, I'm so glad you decided to open your heart to this sweet boy. He deserves all your love, although I can understand your initial reservations. You feel like you're cheating. I had the same problem when I lost Ninja. We buried him in his favorite blankie and I sank into a deep depression for several weeks. The house was SO empty. Then I started thinking I needed another Dobe, but I felt guilty about it. One morning I woke up and found a clump of fuzz from Ninny's green blanket on the floor outside the bedroom door, and I burst into tears (where the hell did THAT come from?). Rich told me it was Ninny telling me it was OK to love another dog, and that I should love the new dog as much as I loved him. (Rich is wise.) Anyway, that night I had a dream that I had found a puppy, little black and rust like Ninny, and his name was Thor. A week later, when I finally got up the courage to contact the local Doberman rescue, they had a two-year old male named Thor. It was meant to be.

Oh Lannie that is a beautiful story. They surely do give us signs from the other side.

Coco had a planet dog glow in the dark ball. It had an orange raised rubber world on it that when she was a puppy she meticulously peeled every part of that orange rubber world off and spit out. Then she never played with that thing again. That was about 9 years ago.

I forgot all about that ball until Sugar found it somewhere in this house a few months ago and proudly pranced around the house with it in his mouth. I gasped when I saw it and said 'oh Coco'. When I said her name Sugar looked up to the top of the stairs to one of her spots and wagged his nub. I know hes seen her because he always does that if I say her name. Hopefully one day he will listen to her guidance when his brain grows.

Our great love for them doesn't end when they leave us, it just changes. I'm working through this and cannot believe that next month on the 21st is 1 year Coco left us and the 31st is Sugar's 1st birthday!

I'm pretty sure he can see (or feel) her there, and she WILL help him. I have another story I wanted to tell if you don't mind me doing it here on Sugar's thread. I had a picture (a big 8x10) of Ninja on the wall in the bedroom, and Thor and I used to go into the bedroom in the evenings and watch TV. He loved to chase the two cats we had at the time, so we'd retire early in the evening and watch the boob tube while the cats had a few hours of freedom to roam the rest of the house. Anyway, one night, Thor looked up at Ninny's picture and then turned and looked at me with a huge question on his face. I said, "That's Ninny, he was here before," and Thor said, "Woo," in the low whisper they do, and looked back at the picture. I didn't think dogs could recognize another of their own breed, and I'd never had a dog that paid attention to a picture like that before.

But any time, ANY time, Rich or I said "Ninny," Thor would race to the bedroom and sit and look up at that picture of Ninja on the wall. It was the damnedest thing. I'm thinking maybe there's a little of that in your sweet Sugar-boy. It's almost spooky, but in a good way, huh?
