This is "Max Cavalera" why not. He's only two days old, but in about eight weeks when I get him (he's arriving by plane) we're going to revolutionize dobermetal :hard:


The best bit is I think I'm going to be able to surprise the missus with him when she gets back from a week long work trip. It's not a total surprise because she knows I'm looking for a dog (you can't just spring a dobermann on someone without at least floating the idea to them first), she just doesn't know that I've been successful. She thinks it'll be November before we even have a look in :D

That looks like a very fine friend indeed!

I hope you keep us updated with pictures as he grows. :)

July 13th, 2015, 07:16 PM
Mmm... fuzzy...

:'). That photo reminds me of my dog Maggie. So so tiny and innocent.

Lots of photos please.

Narf! :up:

Cute puppy. Where did you get him from?

A proper doberman breeder interstate - none of the local ones (although there aren't many) were planning a litter in the near future. Apparently getting put on a plane is no big deal for these little guys, so looking forward to seeing him in September :)

Awwwwwwww :)

Congrats, I bet you can't wait!

Pets are so awesome. My housemate bought two cats on NYE.

Two sisters, Luna and Willow. The next step is to get Willow acquainted enough with the vacuum for me to be able to turn it on!

15 days until we get him. Not even pretending to not be counting ...


PS. On the off chance that you should post on my Facebook wall or something, please don't mention the puppy! It's still going to be a surprise for my partner.

He is going to eat your soul for sure.

As they say in the deepwoods. 'He goin' ta be big'.

He's the biggest of the litter apparently, so I hope he doesn't think he can just throw his weight around to get what he wants.

September 1st, 2015, 03:40 PM
Probably already bigger than our fluffy little guy (who's maybe a big 15lbs) :lol:

Hah, according to one website, 8 week-old dobermans weigh about 12-20lbs, so assuming he's on the upper end of the scale then you'd be right :lol:

Here he is, about to be mugged by his sister ...

Well, he arrives on a flight from Melbourne next Wednesday - that's only 5 days now!!

I'm going to try and film my girlfriend's reaction when she comes home and sees him. Do you guys have any creative suggestions?

September 11th, 2015, 05:57 AM
Strap a go-pro to his collar?

Meet her in the driveway and let the PUPPY!!!!! run to her?

September 11th, 2015, 08:57 AM
Cover her in peanut butter and let nature take its course?

Just greet her with a hand held camera when she gets home. At first she'll be wondering what's up but after that the story will write itself.

Make sure to drop some innuendos to keep her off of her game.

I told Apollo, he's very excited for you:

Here he is! Max, my new best friend.


The missus gets home in about three or four hours - she is going to die

September 15th, 2015, 10:10 PM
Why? Is it a Michael Vick dog?

I love happy endings! Er, happy beginnings. Or whatever this is.

Although the whole thing is great, I think my favorite part is you and Max pacing around the house waiting for her to get home.

Good stuff, my man. :toast:

September 16th, 2015, 07:28 AM
Pics or it didn't happen.Even better. Video!

Aw, what a cutie! Well done!

Max playing around - he's 10 weeks old


September 23rd, 2015, 09:43 PM
Licking the camera at about the minute mark was when I lost it :)

I remember the old one you had too, glad to see another puppy :3

You mean Kane, the one I dress up in Williams F1 gear? Like all dogs, he was a good dog. He died about six years ago now, and my parents' new dog is Tyson - also a doberman.

Anyway, today I think I saw a doberman in the same way that other people see them. I dropped in on mum and dad and Tyson was there and, having spent a week with the the puppy, he looked HUGE!! I couldn't get over it. He looked bigger than I'd ever seen any dog look before.

Too adorable, I love puppies!

This is what I get up to with the 10-and-a-bit month-old cats we have

I just filed an application to adopt a dog.

October 28th, 2015, 11:03 AM
There is an application?

Please don't be one of those leave your dog alone all day people. With your work, I'd be really cautious about a dog unless you're taking on a roommate to look after it. Dogs are social animals, they go bonkers if they get left alone too much. Please don't be that guy.

October 28th, 2015, 01:42 PM
I won't be that guy. Promise ;)

Easy way to fix that. Get a second dog.
