Dobermans have been in my life since the day I was born, I was protected, cared and guarded by a female Doberman named Perla, who as a extremely young puppy contacted Distemper, in that time, this was a greatly deadly disease and with the nurturing care and dedication from my mother this puppy pulled through. She died at the age of 12† and for 12 years she had been my constant companion and friend.
