New puppy..

Well here's the reason I never got my sorority.. my dad bought me a puppy before leaving for cuba. We picked her up the day after they returned. I would have felt bad buying a fish tank right after that, and I had to buy puppy stuff anyways. Honestly, she wasn't even my idea, I didn't want her and I'm stuck with all the work -__- she better grow on me lol. anyways.. this is Mocha the dobermann:




what you doing there? xDD
She's been really good though, besides when she's hyper with our other dog, at 6am and 11pm xD
Anyways, hopefully I'll have a job soon, and sorority is next on my list for pets :)

Yea, she's okay :p she has this OCD thing, I guess. She suckles on her stuffed animals. I researched and she'll prolly do it her whole life.. apparently it's common with working breeds, especially dobermanns, and particularly sweet natured dogs. It's kind of cute except the stuffed animals get all slobbery and gross.

Lol aww, shes soooo cute! Interesting to see a doberman without docked/shaped ears! I dont think I've ever seen that.

Question, why would your dad buy you a puppy if you didnt want one? xD

We wanted to get her ears docked, but she was already 11weeks when we got her, which is too old and there's a risk of it being messed up, so we chose not to :p
I wanted a hamster or more fish, something that stays in a cage/tank instead of running around the house like crazy lol, but my dad wanted some "he can enjoy too". Thing is he's not one to do any work for the dogs..

None of my Dobies ever had docked ears - I'm pretty sure it's illegal here as an inhumane practice, or maybe it's just not in fashion - and I think they're much nicer left natural, anyway.

Your little girl is just beautiful! Maybe you & your dad can walk the dogs together? I found family dog-walking a great bonding experience for all of us.

Your pup's made me miss having dogs!

You got the better deal for sure. I would take a Doberman Puppy over fish any day of the week. I had one years ago that I still miss so much. Giver your girl a big smooch for me.

I wish my parents would get me a dog! Haha I already have 2, but I would love to have 1 of every breed if I could.

Dogs are my passion. She is so cute!
