Many people wonder how I came to own a Doberman Pinscher. So here is Zerbie’s story. 🙂
Two years ago in May my roommate was about to move out. I didn’t really want to find a new roommate, so I decided to live by myself for a year until John graduated College and we got married. One of my brothers, Bobby, worked for the local animal shelter at the time. I told him I was looking for a puppy that could protect me. Two days later, he called me and said he had a 3 month old Doberman that I should get. John and I went the next day to look at her. We were a little apprehensive since I had never thought I wanted a large dog, but my brother assured me she’d only be about 50-60 lbs full grown. So we took her home to get her cleaned up.
I should’ve been worried when we took her to the vet in August to get her fixed and she already weighed 50 lbs at just 7 months old, but I didn’t think about it. She just kept growing and growing. We think she has finally reached the end of her growing spurt at close to 100 lbs! She is a small horse! But she is so full of love and happiness I wouldn’t trade her for anything!
Since she is a shelter puppy, we don’t know her exact birthday. We got her the middle of May and she was 3 months old, so we decided to make it Valentine’s Day! So, in honor of her birthday, I’ll show you some pictures. 🙂
Happy 2nd Birthday Zerbie!
Pictures after the break. 🙂
Back when she was still small.
Zerbie made John a puzzle to solve the morning of our wedding.

What’s a birthday without gifts! Here are her gifts and John’s Valentine’s gifts.
John had to help her open her gifts.
I love my new tug rope!!
