I really love the Dobers!!!
I grew up with two Dobers, Inca and Arko.
Two brothers (they never could be near eachother) those lived down the street..
Once, when my dad and I walked our Spranky (Stabij) I played with Inca and his owner said to me, "if you get Inca with you, if he walks off the leash away with you, you can have him" As a little kid, I was soooooo happy….. I tried and tried... but Inca always run back to his daddy... hahaha
When Kas (my husband) and I went sailing, we wanted a dog... A doberman was a dog, we both wanted badly (I also wanted a Rotweiler, A saluki or other sighthound, A nova scotia, a German shepheard.. etc etc) but we don't think it is a breed that can live well on a ship. and they were to big.. (don't look what kind of dog we now have next to the Basenji's.. hahahaha)
