I believe strongly that public education is the answer to the problem of homeless dogs and that it can go a long way to prevent dog bites and irresponsible ownership. I am an AKC Canine Ambassador, a member of and an evaluator for Therapy Dogs Incorporated, and am a member of and an evaluator for the Pet Therapy Program at Fauquier Hospital. The Fauquier Hospital therapy dog team is made up of some absolutely wonderful dogs that are bombproof in any situation and I am proud that Jamie and Romy are part of it. Tracey and Kari were also a part of it but have now retired. We get an opportunity to participate in other activities besides hospital visits and I am thrilled that Jamie and Romy serve as Dalmatian goodwill ambassadors although it saddens me when people comment that it seems unusual to see Dalmatians with such flawless temperament and such model behavior. I know there are many Dals out there with lovely temperament and excellent manners. I hope more Dal owners will participate in activities that get ther dogs out in public(the general public not just dog shows) and show people what a wonderful breed this is. Here are some pictures of Jamie and Romy at various activities:
Check back as they are always doing new things.
