FEEDING TIME

Gosh, I really am quite hungry. Here, it is almost lunch time. And like typical humans, I must start thinking about what to nibble to get me through the rest of the afternoon. Then it’s on to supper, and if you have a large family, you’d be wondering what to lay out on the table for them later in the evening. At least once a week, you’d be thinking about what to add onto your grocery list for your weekly shopping. Many of you are more than budget-savvy these days and will be doing your shopping on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. Read more

DOBERMAN HISTORY

I’ll be honest with you, I did not know too much about the illustrious background of the Doberman species before I associated myself with it. As a youngster, I wasn’t fond of them at all; in fact, I was quite scared of them, along with the other dog breeds, such as German Shepherds and Bull Terriers who I always believed were vicious and dangerous. And the faster that I ran from them, the faster they seemed to run after me and the louder they seemed to bark. It is no laughing matter being ignorant. Having ditched all of that, today I simply love all dogs, and other animals, I adore the handsome and attractive looking ones, such as the Dobermans, and often regard them as my children even though in reality they really are not.

Now, I am not suggesting that this task is going to be a difficult one. What I am suggesting is that you had better be prepared for the work that lies ahead of you. Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing an unhappy master unable to tend to his dog’s needs. Nothing brings me more to tears than seeing a perfectly good dog’s life ruined and seeing it laying about miserably in its yard. Here, I’m talking about the lucky ones. Such dogs at least have a home to stay in. Read more

More fun on showmanship where Dobermans are concerned. I hope you enjoyed how the previous post turned out. This one is a little more personal. It goes all the way back in time when I was still young. Not too far back, mind you. If I’m not mistaken, I was already in high school, learning new things about many species, both flora and fauna. I was also making new discoveries about our past. Needless to say, both biology and history were two of my favourite subjects at school. Back then I thought Zeus and Apollo were two duty-bound and well-trained Dobermans, comical in the way they behaved sometimes but fearless in the way they raced after villains. Read more

DOBERMANS AS SHOW-OFFS

When you think with what relative ease Dobermans slip into their various roles during a typical country dog show, you might be forgiven for thinking that inherent in their personalities is the happy desire to show off. On a more objective level, you might also note that perhaps the Doberman species is more outgoing and daring, raring to go and full of bravado, in comparison to say, a Mastiff which is ironically quite a sociable beast. Not all Dobermans, it depends on their owners really, yelp for no good reason, but I can’t help wondering whether they do this sometimes just for the attention. Read more
