Her name was Hollywoods Charade, I called her Ruby, my presious gem.
The most delightful, loving wonderful dog I have ever known. Smart, sweet, beautiful and she smiled when she saw you!
I loved her as if she was my daughter, and still do, even though she has been gone for 8 years. Ruby had Wobbler's Syndrome and lived to be 11 years old. But I wouldn't trade the memories of this angel for anything.
There's nothing like a Doberman!

In 1993, I decided I wanted a dog. I had a dog as a kid growing up, a sweet, wonderful cocker spaniel. Then, when I was in college, I adopted an Engllish Springer Spaniel from the Humane Society. But now I wanted a different type of dog. And I was thinking of two very different, maybe, breeds.
I went to the library and checked out a bunch of books about dogs and sat down with a cup of coffee and read and read and read. I wanted to make sure the breed I chose was going to be just right for me.
I settled on two: Standard Poodle and Doberman Pinscher.
oth, elegant, stately, loving, wonderful dogs. Actually very similar in temperment and activity levels. But what was the deciding factor was the grooming. I worked a very busy job with erratic hours and I did not want to have to take my dog to be professionally groomed every 6 or 8 weeks. Doberman it was!
