Hi everyone, I jumped the gun and already posted a question. What can I say!! I was concerned about my babies!! Ok, so here it goes.
I have read some of everyone else's topics and realized my babies aren't as awesome as a lot of ya'lls  :-[
DIABLO: My husband's dog is Diablo!! He is 7 months old right now and he always wants to play!!! This is my first Doberman and I was so excited when I got him. I guess I went about it the wrong way when I bought him cause he did not come with any papers. His grandparents had papers, but the people I bought him from were too lazy to go get his parents papers. So now he doesn't have any! He is a male red pinscher with his tail docked and his ears are not clipped.  :-[ I have him potty trained and he loves to be outside playing with our children. He is an excellent guard dog and protects the children when they are outside. I don't have a gate around my house so he runs everywhere but stays in the yard when everyone is outside. I don't know how to post pictures on here yet, but as soon as I figure it out, I will post some!  ;D I am not using him for a show dog, he is just a pet that I have wanted for a very long time. I guess that's about it!! I am looking forward to reading everyone's posts and learning how to be a better Dobe parent!!!!

Hello and KiaOra.
Your babies sound fantastic and i look forward to seeing some photo's. I think our dobies all love to play just as much as they love to be petted. We have had high winds today and you should have seen Q go after the tumbleweed ;D So funny to watch ;D

Hello, can't wait to see pics.  My dobies are the same way with the kids. They love playing with them and watch over them.  It's very a comforting.
You made me remember my Grandma and her dobie :)  His name was Diablo too :)

Two of our former military foes have used the term "Devil Dogs", the first was Imperial Germany in WWI was actually referring to the sharpshooters of the U.S. Marines who were accurately shooting at over 800 yards. The second was Imperial Japan when referring to the Doberman War Dogs used to root out the Japanese in WWII. To this day, the U.S. Marines are at times referred to informally as Devil Dogs, and also applied to their Dobermans, although they also use a lot of other dogs (whose ears don't stand up).

So, the Spanish for Devil, Diablo, is fitting. At times, they can be little devils as all of us who have them can attest.
