Felix vom Ahrtal (April 6, 1958 - April 18, 1969)

 

 

 

"On April 6, 1958 Ch. Willa vom Ahrtal whelped a litter of six: five black and one blue, three bitches and and three dogs, sired by Ch. Lakecrest's Thuderstorm.  All were sold except Fidelia she lived with me all her 12 years.  Eventually all six became champions: Fidelia, Freya, Frigga, Florian, Frido and the blue Felix.


All of them had good owners, except Felix; he had a rough start in life: his first owner was not able to keep him, his second owner after a short time was drafted into the service and he left Felix with some people who either did not like dogs or were just plain miserable human beings.  Somehow I found out that Felix was chained and abused.  I made them bring him back to me until I could find out where the owner was. 

 

 

It just about broke my heart when he came home; beaten but not broken, he had that proud defiant look.  Felix had the most beautiful eyes, but now they were sad.  At the first opportunity I did buy him back, and swore that he would never leave again.  He had in his young life (he was now 9 months old) experienced enough misery and by rights he should have hated people, but he never did, he was sound and with the love he got here, came around fast.  But somehow he did not care to come and stay in the house like all my other dog did. 

 

 

He would come in for a few hours to get some tidbits; then he would get restless and ask to be let out.  The kennel to him was a safe haven. 

He did enjoy going places, and whenever I had to go out late, he was the one who would come along.  And he was a good guy to have along;

nobody would open that station wagon door or dare give me a crooked look; he was all Doberman.

 

 

A massive dog without a trace of coarseness, he was awe-inspiring, fearless but sweet and gentle.  I remember the time when he brought

 a little Robin fledgling that had fallen out of its nest, delivered it to me with nary a feather ruffled.  It was a bit comical for that big brute to be so gentle.


Felix just loved the dog shows and he was a superb showman but being a blue was a great handicap in those days, and many times a dog not

near the quality won over him because of it.  However, he did finish his championship in spite of it all at two years of age but I had lost heart

and he was never shown as a special.

 


His first breeding was to a Hagen daughter, Iduna vom Ahrtal.  A total of seven champions came from this breeding (three litters), but the first to

finish was not a homebred, but a black dog out of a red bitch (Mikadobe's Flambeau) Alnwick's Black Fury Bismark.


Of the 29 champions he sired there were 26 black and 3 blue. Felix was a glutton for food, if there was a choice of either eating or breeding a bitch: he would eat first then breed the bitch.  He never missed a meal and he never had a sick day.  The only time he had to visit the vet was when he ate

 a huge knuckle bone and got terribly constipated, it took hours to work through plus some 30 gallons of water to remedy the matter.  But that evening he was looking for something to eat!  He slipped away quietly on April 18, 1969, 11 years and 12 days old, a great dog." - Tess Henseler, DQ  1974

 

 

Felix was one of the best Doberman Pinschers to walk on this earth! We all should try to think and breed like Tess.
