First time at Doberman National

This was the first time I attended a Doberman National. Tried to see as much as possible but it was a busy week. Watched some dogs at the WAE and at an OB trial, spent a day and half at the breeders' seminar, attended the Top 20 conformation and OB (and saw a little of the Top 20 agility), shopped and watched friends' dogs in the ring.

To top it off, Gio placed 4th in his futurity class and 2nd in his class at the Nationals so we came home with ribbons and a nice medallion.

The week was all I thought it would be and more.
