Best of All
Best Working Girl, HIT, Always Qualified
My "C" litter was a great success, combining Micah and Rufina's working lines, resulting in robust pups with strong drive and excellent conformation. Chelsea is a good example. She's beautiful, her movement is excellent and she has awesome working aptitude. Though we entered a limited number of trials, the only time that we did not qualify was when I missed a station in Rally. She always performed well in the ring. The only reason I didn't show her more is that her instinct to protect me were so intense she didn't want the other dogs to get close to me.
Chelsea was the penultimate companion, always by my side, devoted and asking for little in return. Her innate guarding instincts were strong. Even friends I had over several times would still get a bark or two from her, even after being there 30 minutes. It was just her nature. Only the few she knew from her puppy days didn't get a bark. But also nothing more than a bark, simply announcing that she was on guard.
I would love to be able to produce another "C" litter. Because both Micah and Rufina received Longevity certificates from the DPCA, the "C" litter qualifisd for the "Bred for Longevity" certificate.
I've had many Dobermans, and like people each is special in its own way. But in my heart I feel that she was the best, and I told her so many times, even as I crossed her over, holding and caressing her, bathing her with my tears.
