Doberman Pinscher Tomas
June 1997 - 28 oct 2007
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive. ~Gilda Radner
Since 1863, annually, for 9 day after approach of the Trinity, in Apolda the exhibition-sale of dogs was spent. Apolda has given Doberman Pinscher to the world. A dog who without a single shot has won the world with its courage, clever mind and beauty.
Only few breeds of dog are awarded to be named in honor of the founders, and not all thus have left memory of. The founder of breed Friedrich Luis Doberman which name dogs now carries.
Most people think of the Dobermans as a strong guard dog, but owners will tell you that they are also a wonderful family pets. This highly intelligent dogs learns quickly while becoming your families best friend and your protector.It is in the Doberman’s nature to be a trustworthy and loyal companion, usually gentle but as robust and tough as you care to make him. Doberman is a great playmate and friend for the children of "his own family" doberman will quite happily join the family at the table and sleep in your bed....
In fact, doberman pinscher will become very "human" if you forget to remind him that he is a dog!
After my family has moved to the private house in the summer 1997 and my dream has come true - we have got a very desired dog. Whether I as now remember that day when my Aunt has called to us and has told that her friend has puppies of the Doberman. My Aunt paid the symbolical sum of 10 hrivnia is approximately 2 dollars. ( By tradition in our country it is not accepted to give dogs as gifts and in exchange it is necessary to pay the symbolical sum for the puppy as the symbol for good health of your favorite animal.)
His most favorite game was to play football at back yard with me and yang dog called Deniska. It is impossible to describe his pleasure when he saw a ball in my hands. He at once rushed to search for the favorite rubber toy which he took in a mouth to not bite through a ball. We have cold winders in Ukraine therefore Thomas lived together with us in the house and liked to sleep both at his place and in a room of my parents near the warm battery. In the evenings when all our family gathered in hall to watch TV he came and approaches to everyone to play with. It was terribly pleasant for him.
( made just before his illness )
Few weeks ago his illness has given a strong aggravation. His back paws have strongly swelled and it became heavy to him to walk. We continued to struggle for him, I did not sleep at the nights and looked after it him, fed and gave water from hands and made massage of his swelled up paws. But I he don’t feel better and results of analyses have shown, that in kidneys there were irreversible reactions and chances of recover are not present. With grief on heart we have made a decision to release him in the best world and have asked the doctor to make him last infection to facilitate his sufferings.
My best friend closed his eyes lastnight, As his head was in my hand.The Doctors said he was in pain,And it was hard for him to stand.
The thoughts that scurried throughmy head, As I cradled him in my arms.Were of his younger, puppy years,And OH...his many charms.
Today, there was no gentle nudgeWith an intense "I love you gaze",Only a heart thats filled with tearsRemembering our joy filled days.
But an Angel just appeared to me,And he said, "You should cry no more,GOD also loves our canine friends,HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.
