Thanks again for all of the welcomes. You all are too kind.

I honestly dont understand some of the veiws towards dobermans. Some people act like you have a pitbull or something.
For one, Pit's are great dogs like Dobermans they have a bad name with many people, but it is at the fault of people that they have this name, not themselves. We have pit owners and past pit owners on this site too, and their dogs are wonderful pets and companions.

I was recently told I had to change my avatar (and I know they will read this and respond) because it was too offensive or was related to the old aggressive stereotypes. lol. It was just a drawing of a doberman snarling or growling that I took from a T-shirt design. I didnt know that people needed to be sheltered from that image. I guess people shouldnt watch most of the movies or TV shows with dobermans in them. They said something about changing the reputation of the breed...which I'm all for, but showing or not showing a picture wont change anything. lol

I guess all I can say is I'm sorry if I offended anyone but, honestly I didnt (and still dont) see anything wrong with that picture. But whatever...that is my rant and rave of my frustration with this whole thing. People are ignorant...can't change them all. This sucks too b/c that will leave a bad taste in my mouth about this site.

As for the avatar and signature, I'm in agreement with Tracy, yes of course there can be pics of something other then dobies on here, but in my opinion it was not appropriate for a family site either.

As for the original avatar with the snarling dobie, yes there is bad media on dobies, we are all aware of that, but why continue to perpetuate that trend? I just see no use for it.
