Cola came to us as a six month puppy, full of joy and spirit. From that moment until the fateful day she left (lost to bloat), a week before her 10th birthday, she never lost that zest for life.

She contributed so much - not only as a great show dog, but also as a loving companion. Everyone understood the true meaning of "teamwork" when they saw Brian and Cola in action in the ring - there was such a magical bond between them. Together they conquered the tough working group (before it was split) garnering multiple group and Best in Show wins.

The culmination was the day that Cola became the FIRST BITCH to win the Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada National Specialty.

There were many high points, but among the most exciting--yet poignant, were the two days in Edmonton, Alberta when she won Best Opposite Sex at both the DPCC National Specialty and the Northern Alberta Doberman Club Specialty from the VETERANS CLASS. It was a "comeback" in the true sense of the word, and there was hardly a dry eye in the house!!

Unlike many top winners, Cola also proved herself in the whelping box, producing from three litters, 17 Canadian and 5 American champions, including Multi Best in Show Winner, Am/Can Ch. Wrath's Sunset Boulevard, and Ch. Wrath's Rodeo Drive (DPCC Sire of the Year). She left a huge void in our lives, but also left a tremendous heritage that lives on to this day.
