Such doggie joy. Watch as Gage, Gia, Andi and Emily have the time of their lives running and enjoying each others company. What fun to watch these spotty dogs having so much fun.

Though this is not a dog that was bred here, I felt very much a part of the litter that she came from. She and her littermates were born on my birthday and were all named after members of my family. This is Emily, she was named for my granddaughter. What a thrill it was today to be ringside as she and her breeder, owner handler, Barb competed for the very first time. What a bigger thrill when she won the major and then went on to win Best of Opposite over specials. Emily is also from the first full litter of low uric acid Dalmatians to be accepted into AKC. Congratulations to Barb for a job well done!

Making People Smile

This week Jazz and her new little brother Indy came to visit with Gage's old people. These two came wearing the green to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day. They impressed the folks with their tricks and how well behaved they were. Indy demonstrated his skateboarding skills, as well as his ability to get all four feet in a small box. Jazz did a search and find demo, to show what she is learning.

Thank You Jazz and Indy and thanks to your special person Lisa for doing such a great job with your training.

Heart Dog

I suppose unless folks want to send me updated pictures, I will just have to keep posting pictures of my two. Perhaps this will inspire some new photos, just to get me to stop.

Sunny Day

Gage is taking advantage of a late winter sunny day. We are all looking forward to spring.

Sometimes this dog gives me the best opportunity to catch a great shot of her. This was one of those days. This is our Gia, mother of many of the dogs you will see on this blog. She is every bit as sweet as she appears in this photo.

Another Pretty Face

What a nice surprise it was to receive a new photo of Mugsy. I haven't seen this guy in awhile. He is a handsome son of Gia and Jigs and brother to our Gage. It is reported that he has a good friend named Bella. Bella is a cat. Mugsy's other great friend is a female named Elz but she is the same species as he. Good boy Mugs!

Mary, Teddy and Cassidy

It is so much fun each year to receive a photo of these three. Cassidy is a dog from my first litter, nearly 13 years ago. Mary was only about three years old at that time and Teddy around seven. They have done a wonderful job loving Cassidy and giving her a wonderful life. There are some breeders that do not like to place a puppy with families with young children, but from the first time I met these two, I knew things would be fine. They were so polite and well behaved. They are now beautiful young adults. Thanks guys for taking such good care of Cassidy.

The Look--A Christmas Story

Those of you with dogs have probably seen "the look". Yesterday was Christmas Eve and we had family here celebrating. I had the dogs blocked from the living room so they wouldn't interfere with the gift opening. Gage kept coming to the gate and giving me "the look". After the third time, I decided I had better go check to see what he was telling me. On entering the kitchen I discovered the problem. It seems that his mother Gia and our guest dog Boomer each had a corner of the table cloth and were gently pulling the food toward the edge. I think they were being easy to keep from being caught. Drats! That little tattle tale Gage ratted them out. And now he is worn out and dreaming of his reward.

Gage & Littermates turn 6

 This past Saturday Gage and his litter mates celebrated another birthday. How quickly those six years have gone. I was so pleased to hear from some of the owners and to receive these two photos. The first is sister Pager. Melissa reports that she is a wonderful girl. She always does what she is asked and does it without hesitation. They could not love her more.
Eden also had a great report. Sheila says he is such a joy and they love him very much. It is so nice to hear about our "Kingdom Kidz" and know that they are doing well.
Here is Mama Gia. She too is a joy to live with. She and Gage bring sunshine to my life daily.

Doggie Love

It was a very Happy Thanksgiving for Gage. Our sons family is fostering a German Short Hair Pointer and they brought her along to spend some time with our   family. Gage immediately fell in love with Greta. He spent the last two days trying to make her realize that he is the man for her. They were fun to watch. Gia was very relaxed with Greta too. Though Gia didn't play with her, she seemed content to watch as Greta and Gage played.

Geno Celebrates Halloween

I was so pleased to receive some pictures of Geno and to hear how well he is doing. JoAnna reports that he is very much loved and a bit spoiled. Here he is with his very own spotted pumpkin for Halloween.

JoAnna also sent this great picture of hand/paw from Geno and herself. What a great shot! They both have lovely nails. Geno is from the Gia/Tolliver litter. They will be celebrating their 4th birthday next month.

Another Title for Jazz

There is no stopping this girl. Lisa and Jim are so proud of this hard working little brown girl and we are proud of all of them. Jim has been running Jazz in agility and the two of them qualify on nearly every run and place in the ribbons as well. Jazz and Lisa have also completed 6 of the 10  RAE wins that they need for that championship. To top all of that off, Jazz and Lisa have now received Jazz' Obedience Companion Dog title with another first place win. What a great team! Congratulations to you all.

My Heart is Blessed

Gage and I had pet therapy at the home this morning. It is always such a blessing to share this sweet dog with others. Today was a very special blessing. The woman in this picture is a new resident and she is blind. When she was brought to the area where we do our visits, I was told that she was unsure about coming because she would not be able to see what was going on. Unsolicited by anyone Gage gently climbed up on the couch next to her and wiggled his butt right into her. As she petted and felt him all over, I described to her what he looked like. She then said, " today I saw and what I see is a magnificent animal". How blessed my heart was by that.

The other thing that happened was that one of my favorite residents recently spent two weeks in the hospital. She has been back at the home for a couple of weeks but has refused to leave her room because she is now confined to a wheel chair. When we arrived I asked about her and was told that she would not come out. I asked one of the staff if they would just go tell her that Gage was there to see her. By golly, it wasn't long and there she came wheeling herself out to the group. I was thrilled and so was the staff. What a blessing this little spotted dog is to so many.

AKC Therapy Dog

 We here at Kingdom Dalmatians are so proud of our resident therapy dogs. Both Gia and Gage do such a great job of bringing smiles to others. Gage was among the first dog of any breed to receive the new AKC therapy title.

He is now known as AKC/UKC CH Kingdoms Twist of Fate CGC, TDI, ThD 
Here is Gage sharing some petting time with one of the residents. What a good boy.

High In Trial!

What a thrill to hear more good news from Jenn. She and Steeler have been out competing in both obedience and agility and are doing a great job. Here is the report from this weekend.
Steeler qualified in 4 out of 4 trials this weekend to earn his CDSP Novice title (CD-C) and competed in Novice C to earn legs towards his championship title. He won the Novice C class with a 198 (out of 200) and also got High in Trial. So now he is Kingdom's Thief of Hearts, CGC, TDI, RN, RL-1, CD-C
We are so proud of this team for all they have accomplished but mostly proud for how much Jenn loves her boy. Great job!

Gia Does Pet Therapy

Little Miss Gia brought many smiles this week during a pet therapy session. The staff was so pleased to hear one of the residents actually laugh out loud when she saw Gia wearing her tutu. They had never even seen this particular resident smile. It is so rewarding when you know that these dogs can bring so much joy to others. Gia did a great job, doing tricks and letting the old folks pet to their hearts content. Good girl G.

Another National Triumph

We are so proud of the Bauer girls for their second place win in brace obedience at the DCA National competition. I understand that these two even walked in sinc as they traveled around the ring. Though Tess (black spotted) is not an official Kingdom Dal, we have claimed her as one of our own and love her too. Brown girl, Jazz, was born here and always makes us so proud. She and owner Lisa work so beautifully together in all that they pursue. Both girls went on to compete individually in obedience and agility and came away with some qualifying scores and some placement ribbons.

Jazz also competed in the DCA road trial and came away with another title behind her name. She is the first Kingdom Dalmatian to ever earn a road dog title. It was a very muddy day but Jazz showed them that even a Princess can compete through the mud when necessary. Congratulations to the entire Bauer family for a job well done!

Steeler At The National

Steeler Dog strikes again! Jenn and Steeler recently competed at The Dalmatian Club of Americas National and came away winners. Steeler had qualifying scores in both obedience and agility. He also took two seconds and a third place ribbon in the process. Steeler is from the Gia/Jigs litter. How proud we are of this great team. Way to go guys!

Who wouldn't want to cuddle up with this sweet brown boy? I was thrilled to hear from Frank & Dana about their boy Patrick and know that he is so well loved. Patrick is out of the Gia/Tolliver litter and has grown into a very handsome fellow.
