Tephillot's One of the Brightest Stars in the Sky "Vega"

10 years 29 weeks
Doberman Pinscher

Vega was born to Addison of Tephillot Rhea and Maverick of Tephillot Rhea of Tephillot Dobermans on July 11th 2011. She is estimated to come home to her new human family on September 7th when she is at least 8 weeks old. Right now she is being lovingly raised by Dr. Jeffery Nix of South Rhea Animal Hospital and his family until she is ready to come home.

Vega was named after one of the brightest stars in the constellation, Lyra. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vega) She is being named in honor of the United States Space Program, which is coming to an unfortunate end. The Universe is a miraculous place and should continue to be studied.

I plan on training Vega to receive and become:
- Canine Good Citizenship Certification
- Therapy Dog

As a former elementary school teacher, I would like to get involved in a program that includes students reading to canines to increase their own literacy. I also want to utilize those experiences to educate others about the Doberman breed.
