Graaf Quirinus van Neerlands Stam, at 9 years

n 15.09.1987 a remarkable litter was born in the "van Neerlands Stam" kennel. Remarkable because neither the dam nor the sire were carrying the blood of the old famous van Neerlands Stam lines going back to the fourties to Gravin Diana or Graaf Dagobert van Neerlands Stam. Ms.V.Knijff-Dermout had bred for the last years so closely that I as her new partner in 1984 thought that it was right to buy a bitch out of a bloodline that had nothing to do with the "van Neerlands Stam" lines. By doing this it was possible for us to bring new blood in our lines by mixing the blood of this new bitch with our bloodlines. I talked this over with the old lady and she agreed under the condition that the bitch would be out of a well known kennel and with more than excellent qualities. So I suggested to buy a female puppy out of the "von Franckenhorst" kennel, the most influential kennel in Dobermann World in last 20 years. Right at that moment they had the so called "D" litter out of Arrow v. Harro's Berg and Vivre Vivien v. Frankenhorst, a combination which doubled up the excellent "V" litter of v. Franckenhorst. Besides, in this combination we also found the magic triangle Odin v. Forell - Bryan v. Forell - Chico v. Forell which worked wonders because it combined the elegance with the smooth and the rough. So I was convinced of the high quality of the litter and much more important of the strong hereditary powers of the litter (this was proved several years later by the influence of this litter on the Dobermann breed in Europe, U.S.A. and in Japan through Dobermanns like Dara, Dolly, Dea Dolores and Dexter v. Franckenhorst).
