will take her to the vet? Who will exercise her? Take her to obedience
classes? Who will she "belong" to?

poop everyday, rain or shine, summer or winter, in the yard or on our walks?

animal emergency clinic is? Injuries and illnesses usually happen when we least
7. Who will take care of my Doberman when I am on vacation? Can I afford to pay
kennel or boarding care fees? Will my job require me to be away from home
