I'm proud to say Peggy Adamson was my mentor in the 70's.

Raindobes, those memories must be very dear to your heart. I love watching the video. Dictator looks so masculine, yet graceful and ever so watchful, masterful. I think he is very well put together, especially for his time period. I dont know your age, but did you get a chance to meet any of his offspring? Dont guess you got to meet Dictator? Trying to remember his call name...Do you remember why he died? Shucks, just reread your post...70's, so you missed him and his offsping, too. Was Peggy still breeding? You are welcome to tell about your experiences here, if you would like. I know I would enjoy reading it.:)

Peggy Adamson gave my boy Walker a best in sweeps when he was a puppy. She kept holding his head in her hand and stroking him. I swear I thought she was going to lean down and kiss him. Meant a lot to me then but more so now. I had no idea who she was at the time.

Thanks for posting this. I love the video.

Dictator's call name was Tater. His death was caused by being left in a car in the heat, one of his daughters died with him.

Those were great memories.. I did meet Victor I think..He was pretty old but still looked great....It was the early 70's so I guess Victor was Dictators son..
I remember Peggy's house..Seemed so strange to me that she had very little furniture in her living room.. but did have some huge custom wooden crates..
Now it does not seem strange at all.. Peggy walked me through my first litter sired y Ch. Damasyn the Russian..Such a long time ago, but I remember chatting with Peggy for hours on the phone..

Okay, I was thinking Tater, but didnt want it shoved back down my throat if I was remembering wrong.:laughing: Oh yeah, about his death,didnt know his datghter was lost with him. Cant imagine the guilt! I had a friend that did that, mowing the lawn and decided to put her girl up right quick in the car and forgot about it. Horrible, horrible way to lose your dog.

None of Tatars offspring's name ring a bell.. But who knew pedigree's back then..Thanks for posting the Pedigree.

I remember when I bought my first doberman. A byb girl that cost me all of $50 in 1968. Of course, I did some reading about them and was so proud that Dictator was in her pedigree, way back, but it was there. I imagine he was like Cambrias Cactus Cash is now. Some of the breeders brag about him being in the pedigree when he's in everbody's pedigree.:laughing:

You know, watching that video and listening to you guys on this thread - we have such a history of this breed at our access on this board. It is history that in the best of situations, get passed on in diluted proportions.

Reading what some of the idiots that come on here post, it must send you right over the edge.

thanks for sharing.
