Hello everyone. My name is Kathie and I have two Dalmatians. We got Maverick in December 2003. His owners worked long hours and didn't have the time to spend with him. So we drove about 2 hours, looked at him, fell in love and brought him home. We have had Piper since May 2003. She's been quite a handful. She had been living outside in a "rescue" for about a year. The "rescue" gave us her papers along with 2 different stories as to why she was there. They even asked me if we planned on breeding her. I said "No, she will be part of the family. No breeding here." They proceeded to tell me that she would produce beautiful pups (of which I have no doubt) but that I would need to kill off about 4 of her pups since she would be a new Mom. I guess the technical term is cull. I was shocked as anything. (She just turned a year when we got her.) She's had some difficulty settling in but we are working through them. She is also getting her pre-molars in. She had a gap where they should be and my vet told me she had a genetic defect and lo and behold, a few weeks ago, she started teething. Weird, huh??? Both dogs have been fixed. Maverick Will turn 4 in April and Piper will turn 2 in April. They are as different as night and day. Maverick is so laid back and Piper is so high energy. We are working on socializing her with people other than me, my husband, and ourt children. I look forward getting to know everyone here.
