I would love to see the very first photo everyone here has of their gorgeous dobes.  Doesnt matter if it's a 'baby picture' or not--just the first one you took when you and your doberman began your life together.

Here's Ziva's mommy, Nikita, kissing her 'goodbye' just before we left the breeder's place and started back home.

 

And this is her first photo at our house, already killing Woodstock, the canary.

 

I know you guys have some 'first' photos to add to this.  Let's see them

Raven is SO cute, and I can't get over the difference in how Cisco looked then and now.  He has a 'big boy face' now

What a fun thread! I love to see the puppy photos, although trying to pick one to put up is hard. 

Ziva you were such a cutie and turned into such a beautiful girl.

Sad to say that my computer that held all the firsts of my other girls crashed and we were unable to retrieve any of the photos. I only have Romeos which he was born in our home so they are his baby baby photos. He was my red collared boy in the litter.

This one was within his first week of life.

This is one of my favorites of Paris and Romeo taken during his first week also. Look how tiny he was hard to believe he was ever that small.

then the last before his ears were cropped. My little handsome prince.

You guys are killin' me!! Just look at those  babies!! I'm having a serious attack of puppy fever!!

Des~~ Do you suppose Paris KNEW what a wild child she was sleeping next to?

Oh dear... Cisco is oh so grown up now.. Look at him! And what a darling Raven is..

Can't wait for more pics..

Come on you guys... this is going to be one of the  best threads every.. thank you Paul..

Genius!

All of the photos are precious!!!

Kate, I'm sure she looks at him now and wishes he was still that little! Funny thing I was reading over my comments the other day on my website of their birth and the following weeks, the way I described Romeo all the way through is exactly how he turned out. He is still that same puppy that he was then and goes through life with the same gusto. It is a good thing we kept him not many people could have handled him lol.

Keep up the pictures everyone. This is where we need a like button (like we have on facebook) or thanks button(such as the one on Doberman talk forum)

Oh my Dobe!! Look at all these wonderful kids, they are sweet, precious, and then they grow into regal majesties. I know that every breed lover has their reasons, but with Dobermans, you don't even has to ask. I'm so proud and excited to be on this forum with you all. Adam and I often talk and question, are there others like "us", well we found y'all! Love these pics, they do almost grow before your eyes. I told Adam yesterday, this time next year, we'll be sitting in Sophie's lap!!

Ohh how precious!  I LOVE love love the one of Paris and Romeo, hard to believe any of our fur babies were ever that tiny!! 

I can just imagine Sofie thinking to herself...hmmmm...so this is home now is it!?  I like I like...ooo is that a MOUSE in the corner?  Well well this is going to be grand!

They were all such dolls!  And of course still are...

There were a lot of photos taken that first week but I THINK this is the first one of Dakota(and of course the infamous matching couch):

9 weeks old and sittin' pretty!

I love them all soooo much...

Ziva getting one last kiss from her fur momma

Sofia examining her new Kingdom

Dakota sitting so prim and proper in her new momma's lap

Romeo pretending to be all sweet and innocent

Cisco and Raven comjuring up ways to make their mommy crazy (before they even knew about each other)

Fancy passed out hardcore

Here is Athena's first of many....

 

 

And here is our new boy (haven't had a chance to post an update on him just yet, expect a new thread soon..still at the breeder's for now)

SO COOL!! Great idea Paul!! 

I love all the firsts... all these kids were such angels when they first came home...! No wonder they wormed their way into our hearts so fast.  They were all so dang cute!! And still are.

Here's my hit on firsts... I used to torture all my family & friends on Facebook with Steve so now here are the ones I've never shared:

Control_Freak: Does the new boy have a name yet?! Another puppers coming home.. !

Here is our first look at Steve:

Here was our first visit, Eli was SO NERVOUS to hold Steve... I thought it was so cute.

Here he had more of a personality.  He kept trying to attack everyone's feet, even at this age!

We brought him home and he wasn't nervous about anything

Here was our first break from posts...

Now he's a GIANT :( 7 months went by too quickly!!

The earliest photo I have of Princess was one that was e-mailed to me by her breeder:

This is when I was picking her up in the land of ice and snow:

You just thought I was kidding about the land of ice and snow. Probably the only vehicle within 600 miles with a Georgia license plate!

Princess gets to meet Uncle Red. Red does not look amused. You can almost read his expression - "Take her back, NOW!" Little did he realize what a relationship they would form.

I am going to have to do some digging to pull out Red's puppy pics.

OMG I'm dying here!!  Aren't they just so special?  We all need to mark this thread so when they're driving us nuts we can look back and get a grip!   A new one?? Oh goodie! They are all so lovely.

I know this is about our dobermans, but I couldn't resist posting this picture.  I think it's such a cute picture.  It's of Buster the first day we had him.

Wendy...  I should dig out the old pictures of Miles as a baby.  I have some of the cutest pictures of him at 2 lbs playing with his kitten friend... my favorite is the one of both of them chewing on a bully stick.  ;) I'd have to scan though!! All his baby pictures are from disposable cameras before I could afford a digital.

WOW puppies!!!! Brody was super cute.

Here's King Leo as the Little Prince!

    6 weeks

    8 weeks

  Almost 9 months and still it's about the mouth!  Looks like he is swallowing the ring from his collar, a reflection.  Be sure to take note of the nose mud smears on his side of the window.  Or is it a paw smear?  Well, it's just a part of the scenery, Windex or No Windex!

I had to resize some photos - which meant the cleekie came out in force today!!  What takes y'all no time at all seems to take me forever.


Here's Brinks on his 1st day home (2/09)

 

Here is what he looks like now at a little over 2 yrs

 

MiLady's 2nd night with us - look closely & you can see her ribs & hipbones sticking out but the photo doesn't show the patches where her fur had fallen out.  (MiLady is the one sleeping on top of Amy)

 

Here's what she looks like now - happy & healthy!

 

GO CLEEKS!!!!  I DID IT!!

 I guess this picture can be when we started our lives together. Laith's "dad" was deployed at the time and I was living in a different state than the breeder. Laith was his welcome home gift! The breeder told me she had two male black pups and I could choose. She sent me 6 pictures. One was more energetic, the other more drive. One loved tug, one loved to fetch. We looked through the pictures debating and I saw this picture. And I was like "that's him. I want the one in the purple". "He looks like a Laith, eh"? The rest is history! He was hardheaded from day one!
