    What does your family think of your dogs?

    In general most of the family is ambivalent about my dog. She is welcomed down at my parents house. Not sure if she would be welcomed at my in-laws. But it won't be a problem because we don't take her up that way(Pheobe and my SIL's cattle dog do not like each other). I will say most of the...

    Breeders and Registered Names

    This!!! I had a hard time with both Ivans and Phoebes registered names and there was a theme with each. I could not imagine coming up with a name on a blank slate. I would never come up with a registered name. For Ivans litter his breeder went with Color. So each puppy had to have a color in...

    Breeders and Registered Names

    Pretty common in Dalmatians to be able to pick your registered name. Most breeders have a theme. So you do have to pick something within that theme and their kennel name.

    How are your dogs with other dogs in their house?

    I don't know if its just because the 2 strange dogs have been female both times or what. But Phoebe turns into devil dog that wants to eat them. Its all about get the F out of my house you don't belong.

    Have you seen pictures of the damage? I hope she can rebuild. That was the best place to go for training. I am glad none of the dogs and people where injured.

    If there was a puppy...

    As long as the dog fits, the color doesn't matter. Case in point Ivan. 9 years ago when I contacted his breeder. I told her I was looking for a show potential liver , with lighter spotting. HAHA Needless to say I didn't get the coloring or the spotting I was looking for. On the day we took the...

    General size categories question

    This mostly, except for those odd breeds like bassets. Ivan and Phoebe fall into the med category. Ivan is 22 inches and 50 pounds which is on the lighter side for a male dal. Phoebe should top out at about 20-21 inches tall and maybe 40 pounds which is about average for a female dal. Most...

    Light Heat?

    I'm wondering that as well. And I will be keeping track of her moods and stuff. We did have our first instance of big girl "bitchyness" yesterday. She took offence to the neighbor dog behind us (who coincidentally is also a female) leaving her yard and coming into our side yard.
