Hi. I am new to the forum. My wife and I look after our son's doberman 4 days out of seven. Texas is now 2.5 yrs old and is a delight to be with. He loves nothing more than to curl up on my wife's lap after play and will playfully bark if she takes too long to sit down. Otherwise he is not allowed on the furniture. I have been lurking on this site for a while and am impressed with the knowledge of the owners.
