Hi Geds

We have a beagle with our dallies. I absolutely adore her and think she is the best thing in the whole world. She even has a few spots as well so she is a honory dalmatian. If I had my way I would have my own pack of them however nobody else see's her quite the way I do. If and when I ever get her pregnant I am going to keep the whole litter as I have been trying 18 months to get her pregnant. Crying or Very sad I have now decided to give up and buy one in.

Word of caution though beagles are more stubborn than any dalmatian you are likely to come across, they eat pooh and roll in poo and very few people let them off the lead. Shocked They also yodel!

Hi geds

I will try and post a picture of BB and Molly in the album I warn you though if you like beagles she wil make you seriously broody. Laughing

They are really fun little dogs. Nice size as well. If you ever want a puppy I would suggest going via the beagle club as there are quite a few dodgy people who sell them. Shocked I would also suggest a home reared one as ours came from a kennel and she was a nightmare.

I only have Dalmatians now (3). We did have a Yellow lab Abbey, (the third since i was a child), the naughtiest, loudest Jack Russell Terrier, Carly who was as lively on the day of her death at 20 as she was the day we got her!!! When I was a child my paternal grandparents bred Champion English and Irish Setters and my maternal grandparents bred Labrador Retrievers. I especially remember the English Setters being very loving and gentle and made great pets. I have always been surrouded by dogs and I cannot imagine life without several.

Hello I am OB my owner dogtired said that although this was a dalmatian site you are all very nice people and would be as pleased about this as me.

Today my master and my younger mistress took my pal the GSP and myself and GSPand the mistresses of his mum and brother to a dog show.

We were all entered in the most handsome catogory. There were 37 dogs in the class. Milly(mum) ,Harley(brother) and I did not really do so well but we had fun. (I had been running in corn yesterday so was a bit blotchy and not at my best!) Twisted Evil

There were lots of dogs who the humans said had good ring craft skills, They were all standing beautifully. Not sure I know what he means excatly. Embarassed

Any way First was a rather tasty Retriever who had won lots of prizes. Third a poodle who also had entered competions before and SECOND was my GSP. I was so proud of him. He has only done the KC good citizen training with me. no ring craft. Razz

He was given some treats as a prize which he shared with all of us other dogs.

Thought I would share this with you all.
The pointer people are not as much fun as dal people Evil or Very Mad Twisted Evil

Lots of love OB and my very handsome friend Compass.

Quite a long time ago ( about 18 years I think!) we already had 2 Dalmatians and 2 Border Terriers. The terriers belonged to our son who, when he left home to go to university, naturally left his terriers at home.
He became involved with the Wye College Beagles and one day asked whether we would " puppy walk" a couple of Beagles. I have always been a soft touch where animals are concerned so naturally agreed.
Madcap and Matron arrived and fitted in very well. I often thought that we looked a bit like Noah - "animals came in two by two" Rolling Eyes All different breeds have their own personalities and we found that Border Terriers are quite like Dalmatians - busy, affectionate and very lively. A bonus, in my opinion, is that both of these breeds are long- lived.
I think that many breeds will fit in with Dalmatians and, although we only have one Dalmatian now, I look with longing at Border Terriers, perhaps to keep our Dalmatian company Question Confused . One day, who knows Question Question

Pat

Were these the working beagles? We have seen a pack of them at a club show once and they look nothing like show beagles? Once of the best shows I have ever been to although a pack of beagles swarming all over the place was a nightmare. Wink I just wish the rest of the family saw mine in the same light as me.

Karen,
Yes, they were part of the Wye College ( in Kent) beagle pack. They didn't look much like show beagles although I took them to ringcraft - thought it would be part of the socialisation process Rolling Eyes
Madcap ( appropriately named Rolling Eyes ) tore one of her dewclaws and had to have emergency surgery to remove it completely. She would have bled to death otherwise Crying or Very sad
It was a very interesting time and I felt sad to see them go. We went to their puppy walkers show and it was good to see them as part of a true hound pack.

I have a black lab / dalmatian cross as well as my dalmatian. She's my one dog of a lifetime (they say there's one you'll meet in your life who is extra special).
Don't get me wrong - I absolutely adore my dal Luca!
But my girl touched a part of me no other dog seems to have reached and it breaks my heart every time I think about my future and whether or not she'll still be there.
What can I say - she's the best of both Very Happy

Right now I only have a Dalmatian, but before that I had Greyhounds and Dobermanns, each breed different, but each breed wonderful. I had always wanted a Dalmatian ever since I was a little girl, my mum had one when she was younger and would always tell us stories about her, so after my beloved Greyhound passed and I was ready to have another dog my husband suggested we finally get one - it has been a very good decision and he is such a wonderful dog.

I have other animals in the house as well, I have a cat, 2 guinea pigs, and some fish. Dylan doesnt really bother with the other animals, occasionally he will try and play with the cat, but due to his size he tends to flatten it, so the cat tends to avoid him, the fish he has never looked at, and the guinea pigs just tend to amaze him, he can stand for ages just looking at them, often nose to nose through the bars of the cage, he has been bitten on the nose several times by the guinea pigs, but it hasn't put him off, he still does it day after day Rolling Eyes
