Dylan, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your work as an exemplary handler. The “Best in Show” win will be most memorable! Your talents and accomplishments especially at this year’s National were evident in your TOP TWENTY WIN with Dakota. This award makes you the youngest handler in the breeds’ history to achieve this goal.

“Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” This milestone is just the beginning of a bright future where your expertise and dedication to the breed are sure to be recognized. You have done an excellent job and recognition of your talents is well deserved. Best wishes for your continued success! Sincerely, Shari & Bob 14 | The Doberman Pinscher Magazine

FROM THE PUBLISHER It behoves me to speak about the “elephant in the room”, meaning the December issue mailing in January. I am extremely sorry this has occurred. There were multiple reasons for the delays in production, from moving to illness to accidents none of which I will go into. I do however want to assure you I am very dedicated to producing the best Doberman magazine out there and we are doing everything we can to make sure the production schedule is back on track. On behalf of the magazine staff and myself I would like to express condolences to June and Tony Pinto on the loss of their grandson in the Sandy Hook school tragedy. Words are so inadequate at this time, but perhaps every little bit helps. Many great dogs have been lost recently — Agador, Monty and now Blue. I knew Blue personally and can attest to his wonderful temperament and great showmanship. He was a wonderful ambassador for the breed as well as a top producer. Our sympathies to Mary Dependhal, his breeder and owner and to Karin Fox who handled him to Top Twenty status and just recently to Best of Breed as a veteran in Waukesha, WI this summer. 2013 will bring more performance and health articles as well as the popular Doberman History column (which will be back in February!). If there are articles you would like to see or contribute please send me an email at Suggestions for features and articles are always welcome, after all this magazine is produced for you! Here’s to wishing everyone a fun, profitable and winning 2013! ‘Til next time....

Thank you judge

John and Addy, Words can’t even begin to tell you how truly honored and grateful we are to the both of you for your trust in us with Bella. You have been amazing as breeders and friends and for that, I can never express how much your kindness has meant to us. You have helped fulfill a dream we had in getting a Top 20 Girl and we certainly are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Bella and for the both of you. Your expert “eye” is what started this breeding and you both should be very proud of what you have accomplished thus far in all the very successful Tiburon babies that are out there! Congratulations to you both and again, thank you for making our “DREAMS” come true!
