    Some years ago my sister came to Charlotte to buy a female Doberman pup. The pup was 5 weeks old. Sis named her Charlotte and for about a month I would lay on the couch and take my P.M. nap and Charlotte would sleep on my chest. I would put her in my coat pocket and take her for walks with just her snout sticking out until she was big enough to walk for a distance. When she was about 2, my Sis and BIL got a 2 year rescue Doberman from the Gaithersburg, MD shelter. Brutus had been severely mistreated and beaten but not spirit-broken and adapted to us immediately. For about 12-14 years when I went to visit, I would take a nap on the couch, Charlotte would lay beside me and Brutus would sleep beside us on the floor.

    It was funny as hell to me but you could never say the word "ride" where Brutus could hear because he would jump up and grab his leash from the wall peg and stand beside the door. If he was ignored he would take his leash into the bedroom and pout. He wouldn't even come out even if you called him for supper. He would lay there until someone sad 'let's go for a ride, Brutus.' Sometimes I would wait for my BIL to come home from work and I would say, "Brutus, do you want daddy to take you for a RIDE?'' and and BIL would say, "Dammit! Lets go Brutus" and he would have to go for a ride. (Brothers like to lord it over a BIL.) Both those pups are in doggie heaven and I will never forget how much joy they provided.
