I would like to take this opportunity to introduce the forum to Jake, my newest Dobe (the 14th I have had the pleasure of being the caregiver to). He is currently 7 weeks old, and we got back from Ohio late last night. He was a moderate traveller, seranading me many times with his song (I want out of this crate - NOW!).

He is a cuddler and lover. He has already given me more kisses and likes than Princess has in three years. I may have to warn people of the bionic tongue when he is older.

This is a photo taken when I picked him up:

And another I took yesterday morning when he was watching me in the bathroom at the motel.

BTW - He has been tagged with the title "The Jakester". (Sort of like "The Donald" although Jake doesn't own any NY property.)

I am sure there will be many more photos to come.

Can't really decide who's the luckier of the two ---you or Jake.  I think maybe you BOTH are.  Glad everything worked out and you made it there and back safely.  Looking SO forward to photos and stories of Princess and the little dude.

Oh Rick.. What a wonderful addition you've made! Have been watching and waiting and hoping for great things along with you for a while now and I couldn't be happier for my good friend and his new companion.

He is an adorable pup and will enjoy the best of homes. I am sure Princess will welcome him in her own royal way.

WELCOME HOME JAKE!!!!

WOW....VERY handsome fella!

I was just thinking, (and I could be wrong) Jake is from parents that are "Gentle Doberman" dobermans. That would make Jake second a generation "Gentle Doberman" doberman". This would be our first in house forum puppy.

Congratulations Rick!!

Gun_slinger - never thought of it that way, and you are close. Jake is actually the SECOND second generation GD doberman, Princess is the first. She is out of Jewell and Drako's second litter, both of whom were Alpha's dogs. Drako is still listed in his listing along with Logan a littermate brother to Princess. (Both are actually on the masthead as well. He is the one with a leg over the barrier, and she is next to him looking at him).

This time I got to meet Bella who had a very worried look on her face. I wasn't sure if she was worried that I might take a puppy or worried that I might not. There are now only four left at home of the 10 originally. Mopar has the softest fur I have ever felt on an adult Doberman. It is almost like velvet. He is still the wild child though.

Here are photos of Princess meeting Jake for the first time.

Princess is sure what this is, and Jake is not sure about her. She looks sorta familiar, but that's definitely not mama.

Time to get a few sniffs in. Princess was not overly impressed. Less so last night when I had them in the back yard together and Jake noticed something familiar. He said, it may not be mama, but she had those and I got food from them, so he tried one. Princess bolted to the other side of the yard and wouldn't come withing 10 feet of the little man for a while.

love the first meeting photos and narrating LOL. Mine always had the hardest time excepting others into the pack.

There has been some progress. Miss Princess seems to be far more accepting of Jake, and tonight outside was a mix of showing some maternal instincts and wanting to play.

How true. Princess has started playing with him now, and that is great. She has started playing with him long before the time Red started playing with her. But then, Red was my only Dobe for 4 years, whereas she was my only Dobe for less than three months.

Needless to say, they are not together when I cannot supervise.

I am so happy for you and he is just awesome!  It is amazing to see how little they are at that age.  I had to go back and look at some early pics of Deeks....a trip down memory lane LOL. 


Time goes so quick, Deeks just turned 6 months old.  I can't remember him being little, thank god for pictures right. 

Congrats to you!

Well, I did take my two out back outside to run and play this afternoon while I tied to get some decent pictures. The first photo shows Princess taking off in a run when we first got out there. It also gives you some perspective on the area. The area to the left belongs to my neighbor. If you look where she is heading, just this side of the trees, you will see a low mound of dirt. Just in front of it is the Doberman graveyard where seven of my previous Dobes are interred.

For a while, Jake was more interested in the grass and whatever:

For most of the time, he was between my legs, after all, there was this BIG Doberman running around, and he knew if he got in her way he would be bowled over (from experience).

Thanks for sharing and posting more! What a good space for them to run! Won't be too long before the Jakester grows legs for chasing Princess down! But what a safe spot until then!

Thank you Rick!  I know it's hard to take a picture when the pupper won't move from between your feet...

Nice running area too

So..........  Keep the camera out & the batteries ready!  You KNOW we're going to keep asking for more photos of the "dynamic duo"!

Wonderful photos Rick.. Love your 'back yard'.

Just what two amazing Dobermans deserve!

Adore the one of HRH running for the stand of trees, and the Jakester saying..

" Gosh, I can't wait til I can do that!"

Soon enough little guy.. soon enough

Yeah, he's 8 weeks old now, so in 18 more weeks, he will be big enough to keep up with her. He is a pill. Donna said he had personality and he does. He may be the runt in size (which I like, no more 100 pounders) but not in personality. I just fed him in his crate (3 different dog foods for 4 dogs, so they all have food bowls in their crates, ala the kennel and vet) and he is now screaming to get out.

Kate - actually I call that my "outback" because it is behind my "back yard" which is immediately behind the house and is fenced. The "outback" has a farm fence across the back, and I am careful to not let Jake get all the way back because he can go through it easily. The wires are in 4"x4" squares, large enough to keep a grown Dobe in, but not a small puppy, which Jake still is. To the east (right in the photo) there is not fence, just more open area that has not been mowed, a cargo trailer belonging to the Boy Scouts and a 20' flatbed trailer and then the woods.

Oh my what a cute little Jake boy!!!! Ben and I say "can he come over for a sleep over" hahahahaha, he is just too cute. If he thinks Princess is big wait till he sees a huge old rottie tongue slapping his cute little face - my lord Ben's tongue is long and huge he would swallow him up, give Jake a hug from Rogers Wild Kingdom here and tell him Ben says "grow strong and sure" but keep the sweetness......
