  1. omg he is lovely, what an adorable litle boy, and if he grows up looking half as good as he looks like as a puppy he will be a stunning boy, congratulations ! And just out of curiosity, who is his sire and where was he imported from ?
  2. We don't have senior handling here, so I just do normal handling :wink:
  3. Sending lots of positive thougths for her
  4. [quote]Oh and someone mentioned Sieger shows. They aren't just for GSDs, I know Rottweilers compete in them too. Not sure of what other breeds do though.[/quote] I know, but these are breed specific shows, the siegershow for the GSD only has GSD, the rottweiler has a siegershow aswel, dobermanns too.
  5. Actually, all the dobermann breeders in Europe use two -nn, wich is correct, also if you are doing a search on the internet, if you tipe doberman you get american sites, but if you tipe dobermann you get European sites. Ohh and sizzle, she is totally lovely
  6. [quote name='AllAmericanPUP']there is a country that does require the dogs be showed and worked...cant remember wich country though[/quote] In most FCI countries working dogs require a working test to become champions, and all working breeds require a working test to become international champions. I think that this is a very good thing and should be used more extensively (sp?) so breeds that were bread for a purpose have to show that they not only look the way the breed is supposed to look but they can also work, a border collie can not become an international champion if it can't herd. We can also take a look at a breed the AKC breeders are ruining, the GSD, in Germany, there is a show of shows for the GSD, only shepherds and no other breeds, called the Bundessieger or Siegershow. To be able to participate there a dog has to be both correctly built and be able to work, and they begin by testing the work, and if the dog does not pass that he can not get into the conformation evaluation. This I think is a very good way of jugding dogs of working breeds.
  7. we have loads and loads, wich is quite good, since then it is easier to do avalance sears exercises, but I particularly don't like it that much, I love summer, green grass and heat, and I woud prefer having it that way all year roung here... but no... This is the first winter in five years though that we have had good snow, last few winters have been very cold but litle snow and no skiing
  8. Is that legall ? I would think that you would have to sign something stating that she was not your dog, since you were co-owning here
  9. The breeds that I would not want to own are breeds that don't mix well with my lifestile, I love the temperment and look of the huntingdogs, but I don't hunt. Hounds don't appeal to me neither do terriers. I want dogs that are smart and like to be with you and learn, train and work. Also I would not go out and buy a very wet mouth breed, Im not a fan of drool, but if I could take in a rescue then things might sound a bit differently. I dont mind hair or grooming, but Im not going to get a standard poodle until I can afford to keep it well groomed, So, to sum things upp, I would not go out and get hunting breeds, hounds, most nordic breeds, large mastiffs, and most lapdogs. This is not because I don't like them, by no means, just because they don't fit into my lifestile and they likely would be happier with an owner that is more involwed with them.
  10. A friend of mine will be going to Crufts as well as a junior handler (be sure to say hi to the girl from Iceland :wink: ) I started showing when I was to old for Junior handler, but I love showhandling anyways, totally addicted !
  11. Thats great, wonderfull that she is doing so well now, and hopefully she will fatten upp a bit soon :D
  12. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm *drooooool* oops, sorry for that, didn't meen to drool, have to get a napkin to dry this upp
  13. Im so so sorry, what an awfull time *hugs*
  14. Congrratulations Cruiser, and what a beautifull dog
