So, I'd really like it if a Doberman got Best in Show (or even just won the Working Group this year; a Portugese Water Dog won last year, though FiFi [GCH Protocol's Veni Vidi Vici] got it the year before).

The top five Dobermans invited to Westminster (however that works. How does that work? They aren't the current top 5 in the country) are
GCH Cambria's Vraiment Parfait
GCH Protocol's Veni Vidi Vici
GCH Tiburon Ariel Bella Dona
GCH Tiburon Arsenal
GCH Vondura's Xcelerator Belle Amie
Well, we know who Protocols Veni Vidi Vici is, and if you don't, you can take a gander at her Facebook page. Lots of lovely pictures of her, including win pics from a Philippines show a couple weeks back.
A Doberman Talk member took pictures at a show a couple weekends ago (The Rose City Classic) and got some really amazing shots of Tiburon Arsenal (call name Gunner), so I already have a great opinion of that red boy. Cambria's Vraiment Parfait (at least in her pictures on the website) gives me an impression of length; she's leggy, her neck is long, etc. (though maybe she was a puppy in those pictures, as this more recent win picture shows her far more filled out).
The number 9 Doberman, Raindance Led Zeppelin of Marquis, call name Troy, was in the news just lately because he apparently sniffed out Stage II breast cancer in his owner (who got treatment and now, four years later, is all right). He's a handsome boy.
Really, it's superfluous for me to refer to any of those dogs as attractive. Of course they are; they're the top 5 (or 10 or 20) Dobermans in the United States. Many judges across many shows have given them wins and points enough to be Grand Champions.
