What a gorgeous puppy and such a shiny coat!
Dec 7, 2006 Julia
Gahhhhhh!!!! What a big NOSE you have! I am sure it is all the better to sniff and snork with. Gracious!!!! Even my boyfriend giggled when exposed to that NOSE.

I spy natural ears. Thank heavens for that! These are classic flappables, and I am so glad you value them intact. Pointy ears are fun to play with when they are natural, but dogs with natural flopsies just as nice.

The belly is also pristine! See how nice and clean it is? That would make snorgling all the better. I am imagining how velvety and warm it would be to do a faceplant right in there and snuzzle. I bet it smells like grass and warm bread (puppies sometimes smell like bread, don't ask me why).

Kasch is a gorgeous pup and I love his name!
Dec 7, 2006 Penelope
I miss my dobe, Margo. Her best friend was Maggie the cat. The ears on this puppy are lovely and I know how silky they must be. Have to just admire other people's dogs now since there is no way to fit one in here. 11 biscuits!
Dec 7, 2006 DogMom
Love the EARS!!!! So glad you didn't crop them--he looks so sweet!
Dec 7, 2006 Lisa Jackson, Dallas Texas
I am so glad you left his ears natural, your puppy looks so full of energy and I bet he is very good natured. The first is usually very spoiled, just one of the famiily! And his FEET so BIG, look out, you are going to need a king sized bed for everyone. Lots of love and joy!!
Dec 7, 2006 Lawless
I am not mad at Kasch, he is just a puppy. BUT I couldn't give this dog any biscuits.

The folks (commies?) who run this site appear to be prejudiced against pups with cropped ears. I submitted my girl (who, let's be honest, is more stunning than this guy) but she wasn't chosen because of her pointy ears.
Dec 7, 2006 Julie
What a beautiful puppy and beautiful markings.
Dec 7, 2006 Yolie
SWEET!
Dec 7, 2006 Bunnied816
Holy Mother of Footwear!!! Just LOOK at those paws!!! Spectacular!! He's gonna be one big boy!!! What a handsome devil, too - and such a healthy, shiny coat! He is obviously well-loved and cared for - an excellent "first-born." Congrats!
Dec 7, 2006 Always 11 Biscuits!
Kasch deserves 11 biscuits!
Dec 7, 2006 Terri
It is so refreshing to see a dog without the ears being set up.

He is gorgeous and a very handsome fur person.
Dec 7, 2006 Snowcone
Lawless' comment made me laugh. It amuses me greatly when people who are obviously old enough to know better, let disappointment (and a hint of jealousy?) sink them down to the elementary school level of "But my dog's prettier than your dog!" When all dogs are equally beatiful and amazing, in their own ways.

And if frowning upon doggie-mutilation makes us "commies" then I'm up for a move to China. All the rest of you guys in "red" are welcome to join me ^_~.

And of course Kasch is an awe-inducing cute, and well on his way to becoming very very handsome. Hope you all stay happy and well through the holidays! 11 Biscuits<3
Dec 7, 2006 Ladybug
Hey Lawless - probably best they didn't accept your dog's pictures. All anyone wants to talk about are the ears, so you'd get flamed. I love boxers (my fave!) and there is one cropped boxer on here -- and someone congratulated the owner for NOT cropping the ears, saying they are much cuter now. Ha!

Oh and before anyone flames me (my dog is cropped) or Lawless (it's refreshing to see someone else out there who ADHERES TO THE BREED STANDARD PUBLISHED BY THE AKC!!!), read this, courtesy of the AKC.

"Doberman Pincher: Ears normally cropped and carried erect. The upper attachment of the ear, when held erect, is on a level with the top of the skull."

PS: Lawless, is your Dobe a "red" -- because I think this site is run by, em! LOL!
Dec 7, 2006 Bridget
i love that he loves to sleep and be lazy; my pit is sucha cuddle bug and will stay in bed all day!
Dec 7, 2006 Atlanta puppy lover
Oh my, those are the biggest feet ever! I bet they have that great doggie/puppy smell! You have a beautiful pup!

And as a side note: just because the AKC says ears are "normally" cropped, and designate such as a "breed standard" doesn't means it's ok/justified. Chinese women used to bind their feet because it was "normal" and "beautiful," but it was also mutilation.
Dec 7, 2006 ali 7n7
you know why dont you folks take your arguements some where where folks appreciate them.because it's not fun reading your posts .to bad this place isnt moderated.
we just want to look at puppys and be nice if youcant do that then keepit toyour self or go out to the playground thanks aliha ali 7
Dec 7, 2006 dani
beautiful puppy! when i was growing up, i had a (floppity eared) dobie named Huxtable (we called him Huxy) that used to sit and listen to me practice my violin. If I got too out of tune, he'd sit up and bark at me until I got things right. He was, probably, the best teacher I ever had. I hope you have just as many wonderful years and silly antics with Kasch.
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
Sorry, I am not trying to argue. As I said before I think Kasch is cute. I gave him SEVEN biscuits [he lost two because his eyes are too light (breed standard calls for "Iris ranging from medium to darkest brown in black dogs") and his owners lost two for letting him wear a choaker in the house -- UNSAFE].

I just think that people should respect the AKC more (they aren't just champion dogs, but also the dog's champion!) and stop being so judgemental about those that respect the AKC.

I also think that if Lawless is right and his or her puppy was not featured on the site because it adhered to the AKC's standard, well that's a shame. And we all lose because we missed out on seeing another cute puppy!!!
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
(PS: It is kinda funny that Snowcone wants to move to China while Atlanta Puppy Lover doesn't like the Chinese -- although both of them criticize the AKC-sanctioned practice of ear cropping by comparing it, to, you guessed it, China!)
Dec 7, 2006 Michael
We've never declined to feature a puppy or grown-up puppy because of their appearance. It all comes down to the quality/quantity of the photography.
I mean, think about it for a minute... have you ever seen a puppy that wasn't fit for being featured here?

On another note... please bear with me whilst I try to get the registration system and forums fully integrated.
Dec 7, 2006 Michael
I just set up a forum topic for a discussion of the AKC Doberman standard.

http://dailypuppy.co m/forum...

Let's see how it works. Please e-mail me if you have any problems registering or have any suggestions about how to run the forum. (I've browsed forums before but never really used one so any suggestions would be appreciated.)
Dec 7, 2006 Julia
Why would anyone compare feelings about ear cropping to political/cultural affiliation? They are not even remotely similar.

This website does not evaluate puppies based on AKC standards. It is all about the cuteness. I don't give a whit what the AKC standard is if a dog is adorable. There aren't any AKC standards for most mutts--if you are using that as your yardstick, you won't be able to rate anything that is not purebred and recognized by the AKC.

Also, I hope that the rules about cropping and docking change. Sometimes it has been done for functional purposes, and thus for safety. Some breeds are cropped and docked because their functions (jobs) put them at risk for injury with flopsy parts (ears and fragile tails). This is where the standard came from. Now that most dogs are companions and are not subject to the same level of risk, it is my hope that the standards will change to reflect this.

In contemporary America, we value skinny women with blonde hair, blue eyes, and large....upper bodies. That doesn't mean that this was always our beauty ideal, nor does it mean it would be fair to judge women's beauty on standards set by an arbitrary organization, like the Miss America pageant judges, or something. "Well, Susan, I marked you down two points because you are an inch too short, and your eyes are too light..."
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
My thoughts on ear cropping have now been placed in the forum set up by Michael (a dozen biscuits for him!) the Admin. I won't comment on here because this should be reserved for comments on Kasch, the lovely puppy with the too-light eyes (JOKE!!!!!). He is a doll.

Julia, all I did is specify where Kasch got demerits in my book. If every puppy gets 11 biscuits, then we are driving down the value of a biscuit and are in danger of permitting currency on this site to be as devalued as the pre-WWII German (birthplace of the Doberman AND -- greatest breed -- Boxer) economy! I think it's only fair to say why someone didn't give 11 biscuits, out of respect for the puppy and owner.

Kasch, I'll say it again, is a BEAUTIFUL BOY. Now take that choaker off of him indoors, PLEASE!

Where's lawless, he/she started this muckety muck and now has vanished.
Dec 7, 2006 Kaschsmom
Actually, if you look closely at the pictures you will see that when Kasch is outside he is wearing a regular collar along with a chain. The chain is NOT A CHOAKER and has no capability of choking him at all. I repeat- the chain around his neck lacks a choking mechanism and is therefore no more dangerous than a fabric collar. It is simply a chain that is worn around his neck (like a regular fabric collar) that holds his name tag. I hope you wouldn't really think that I would endanger my puppy by allowing him to wear a choker all the time. Ladybug, you owe Kasch 2 biscuits.
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
Kaschsmom,

That is the cutest funniest message! Thank you SO much for clarifying. Kasch gets back 2 biscuits, and his mom gets a cookie for herself for being:

1.) Responsible to her lovely boy
2.) So polite in pointing out my mistake (it would have been SO easy for you to be critical, but you were very polite, thank you)
3.) Funny.

I wish you only the best of luck with your boy. He's going to be great.

Now am I the only one who is eager to see Lawless' dog? I am dying to know who could be cuter than Kasch!!!!!!

(PS: Again Kaschsmom, you are a love, thank you for your note)
Dec 7, 2006 renee
Such a cutie pie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks happy, healthy and shiney to me.
Everyone is commenting about the ears. I think I prefer them this way. It makes them look friendlier and cuter. Plus no pain to the pooch. Who cares if they are AKC or whatever? We come here for quality cuteness. Voting 11's or 10's etc. for all the dogs won't devalue the system. 7 seems kinda low and degrading. Could we post you pic on here ladybug? There is something beautiful in all of us. Why does Micheal get attacked all the time? There are puppies that get picked and some who don't. Why cry if you don't get picked? Try try again.
Kaschs Mom,
Please becareful we doesn't get stolen. He looks so precious. I had a 10 mo. Rottie for 2 wks and someone stole him from behind my building when I was moving. I had only been gone a half hour. My friend had her dobbie stolen from a second floor balcony.
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
Renee,

I don't want to distract by talking about my dog on Kach's page. Suffice it to say that he's no longer with us so photos would be pointless. (PLEASE EVERYONE, NO "SORRY TO HEAR THAT" NOTES, THIS PAGE SHOULD BE ALL ABOUT SWEET KASCH).

I think what Lawless was saying is that because there are no cropped Dobes on this site and only one cropped Boxer, it seems like there is an agenda against cropped dogs. I suspect that's what he/she meant. I for one would LOVE to see Lawless' dog. Anyone with me?
Dec 7, 2006 Terry C
He is absolutely gorgeous. Please leave his ears as they are.

Lawless, you're being ridiculous.

I see we have to log in now (sigh). Why must it be that someone always has to make things difficult for others?

Michael, wonderful site.
Dec 7, 2006 Julia
Terry--

You can set it so that you automatically log in whenever you come to this page. That's how I set mine up. It's easier that way. Plus, nobody can use your name. It also makes people slightly more accountable, and should keep away some of those anonymous meanies.
Dec 7, 2006 Lawless
Wow, I guess I hit a sore spot with the ear cropping. I love the Dobes both ways, I just personally think they're more stunning with their tall pointed ears.

Why does everyone keep writing "please leave his ears floppy" about this guy? If one were to actually crop the ears at this age -- THAT would be cruel.
Dec 7, 2006 Care
MY what big feet you have! You are going to be quite large. :)
Dec 7, 2006 DKN
I don't think there is an agenda against DOGS that are cropped - it's not the dog that makes that choice.

The AKC may not have a clear stance on ear cropping but I would bet these days most VETS do. Years ago I read a column about ear cropping by Dr. Michael Fox and he despises the practice and gave good reason. It's cruel at ANY age. When it comes to the proper care of animals, as Dr. Fox goes - so goes my nation.

And as for those complaining about the discussion of such issues and that it's ruining your experience reading this site please consider that the people on here care deeply about the well being of all our creatures and have the right to talk about things that pertain to that.
Dec 7, 2006 ladybug
DKN,

Michael kindly and thoughfully (and promptly) set up a forum to discuss cropping. You should share your tunnel-vision thoughts there. This page is for Kasch. It's not for you to soapbox because you read one article by one vet.

As far as the ANY age comment, what I believe Lawless was saying in her age comment is that puppies that are cropped properly are cropped between 7 and 8 weeks of age, not 4 months. So when folks on this site say, "Please don't crop Kasch's ears," they might not know that after a certain age, cropping is ineffective and more painful than it would have been when done at the proper time.

I would be happy to discuss anything else in the Forum. But please keep your posts here to Kasch. He's very cute and deserves your attention.

He's now up to ten biscuits in my book! I like how shiny he is.
Dec 7, 2006 Susan
Kasch is really beautiful and I love his natural ears and his eyes. We are looking for loveable cuteness here not perfection to AKC standards.

I am so GLAD Michael has created a forum and required log-in for comments. Hopefully the weirdos will now be silenced.
Thanks Michael!
Dec 7, 2006 jobo
Wow, Kasch is king!
Dec 7, 2006 Satina
I would love him more if he had his tail still. In our country it's forbidden to crop ears and cut off the tail (thank god). It is unnatural and unfair because the animal is not making this decission.

And to me personal, I do prefer NOT to see the details of a dogs bootie.
Dec 7, 2006 Knate and Charlene
Who gives a flaming pooper scooper about cropped or uncropped ears. Kasch is a gorgeous puppy with the most fantastic feet-he has a great home(hi Kasch's mom)he can snuggle with the two of us anytime. Big tummy rub and a thump on the rump for the beastie!!
Dec 8, 2006 ladybug
Why does everyone hate the AKC so much? It seems like you all think that somehow cuteness and breed standards are mutually exclusive. Good gosh, already. Give it a rest.

PS: I re-read Kasch's bio. Wow, your FIRST puppy is a Dobe! That's like getting a Ferrari for your first car! Way to go!

You keep telling everyone what they can and can't discuss. What's up with that? All people really wanted to do was ooohh and aaaww over this picked pet of the day. He is special and unique. I'd actually like to know more about his name.
Dec 11, 2006 anon
he is BEAUTIFUL!!! Check out the enormous feet on this baby... he's giong to be HUGE! I hope you'll send in some pics of him to the grown-up section once he's fully grown, I'd love to see him again :) Great name, too...

Also, concerning this cropping business, let's not all say terrible things about owners with cropped puppies. I have a pup with a cropped tail, but that decision was made by the breeder before we even saw him (and we first did at 3 weeks of age!). If it were up to me, I would've left him just as he is... Sometimes it's not the owners' fault... they just came that way and they love them regardless.
Dec 11, 2006 Belle
I love all of your pictures. Told my boyfriend I want a dog for Christmas and I bet your dog would look good with a bow!!!!
Dec 19, 2006 drm
Yay! I'm special. I brought his score from a 9.99 to a 10! Go me, go me, go me!

ohhhhhhhhhhh he is soooo lush me and my friend love dobermans and we both want one!!
Feb 4, 2007 Bexx_g
awwwww he is so beautiful. i love dobermans they are so cute! infact i found this site strangely enough trying to find a suitable name for my dobie baby boy. and i've been looking at loads of doberman pics aa=nd they all seem to have the same markings. your puppy is worth more than 11 scorings. he looks amazing x x x
Feb 16, 2007 Hogan'sMom
We've had Dobermans for years. We now have two 6 month older brothers. I like the ears both ways and have had dogs w/both natural and cropped. Our boys are cropped and had no problems with the surgery or the healing. In fact, the day we brought Ranger home he was back to chasing the cat all over the place. I think each dog, like a person, is different in how they react to surgery of any sort. Either way, we are partial to the breed and think Dobermans are one of the most regal, intelligent dogs around. Kasch is awesome and looks like he may be a "Superior Size" Doberman, which is what we have.
His coat is beautiful!
Apr 24, 2007 x-lab_lover-x
my gran had a dobie they just constanly have you laughing! she says you are very brave raising a dobie as your first pup - there a lot of work but i think you will have worked that out allready! have fun with this beautie XxX

What a sweet puppy, apart from the docked tail.
Dec 9, 2007 Proud Mommy of 3
[b]Hello to Kasch and his Mommy;

WHY MUST PEOPLE BRING THEIR PERSONAL OPINIONS HERE?! IT'S SUCH A SHAME THAT THEY START A TOPIC DISCUSSION BETWEEN EACH OTHER....INSTEAD OF ADMIRING THE PRECIOUS PUP AND CONGRATULATING THE NEW PARENTS!!!

It's been one year since "Kasch" was the featured daily pup. I'd really like to hear how he is doing now. Did he grow into his [u]HUGE[/u] paws?!?! OMG...I couldn't believe how big they were. He must be a really big boy now!!!

Glad I can't choose a favorite picture, because it would be [u]very difficult[/u]! His personality really shows through in them!! He's adorable and very handsome!!!

My step grandparents had 3 dobe's. WHAT WONDERFUL TEMPERMENTS AND INTELLIGENCE! Their first was a retired guard dog. [u]He was a SWEETHEART[/u] UNLESS you were carrying something out of their home...lol! I quickly sat it on the kitchen table, and I believe I had to change my pants when I got home...lol! He was very protective of all family members. My stepbrother was spanking his small child...until Duke came and put a stop to that! They are a wonderful breed!!!

Oh how I hope you enjoyed every second of his "puppyhood". They grow up soooo quick! I REALLY would like to see current pictures!!! If you have time and don't mind, would you please let me know how much you've enjoyed your first year with Kasch? Also, I could then send you my email addy so you could send me recent pictures! I'm a [u][i][color=red]HUGE[/u][/i][/colo r] animal lover. My two boys and my bf's girl are MY CHILDREN! [u][i][color=red]I couldn't imagine life without a child(dog)!!![/u][/i][/color]

[color=green][i]It's Kasch's second Christmas! Hope Santa brings him lots of goodies!! But then again, I'm sure he believes that he has already received the best gift....YOU AS HIS MOMMY![/color][/i]

~MANY BLESSING TO YOU AND KASCH~ Deb and children: Harley, Mithrill and Jasmine.[/b]
