Duchess has been having a big problem since losing My Jenny. We don't know any dog psychologists or psychiatrists so we have been trying to comfort her as much as possible. We've been talking the last couple days about possibly getting another dog as a playmate for her. Out of curiosity, I checked out the Internet. There were several Dobermans at various ages for sale online. I wrote down the two possibilities that I thought looked most promising.
There was a red/rust male about a year old at a shelter. It already had it 's ears cropped and it loved to swim. They also noted that it was very energetic. All that sounded good. I sent an e-mail and called. They were in our path of travel today. So we were hoping to stop by there.
The other ad was also in our path. It had black/rust Doberman puppies 8 weeks old. Now we were really looking for another red, but some breeders don't list the off colors if they have only one of the off colors because for some people if you have more than black it turns them off. Also, blue, red, and fawn can often be sold word of mouth. When we called, we were told that they also had a blue female.
Since Dale bought Duchess, he has been talking about also buying a blue female but three dogs in town were too much. So we decided to stop by and take a look.

Duchess was spending the Day, Saturday, at her favorite kennel with Julie and one of her puppies from the last litter, Sonya. So I called and they agreed to keep her overnight. We will introduce them at a neutral location on Sunday. UPDATE:
