My favorite pet was one of my dogs (the last one). Pepito, a wonderful and brilliant doberman. We were like two close friends. He was looking me in the eyes and he could catch my mood and what i wanted from him. He used to stare and try to understand me and many times trying to dominate uppon me. He was looking me steady, straight and fearless in the eyes, trying to take the leading role. Amazing dog! Definately not a dog for everyone. If you don't know the dominant character of the doberman, can easily shift the roles and be the leader in the house. I lost him from poisoned food 6 years ago.
The fear leads to death as the window to the courtyard...JUMP!
