Lila is now known as Champion Rim Rock's U Gotta B Kiddin'. She finished her championship rather easily on June 26, 2010 at the age of 14 months. She is BAER bilateral, CERF clear, No ISD. She is bred, owned and loved by Barb Allison. Lila donated blood at one of the DCA blood draws so she can help promote good health in Dalmatians in more ways than just passing on her gene for Normal Canine Uric Acid.

This year Marion & Terry traveled for 4 weeks around Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana with the dogs. Both dogs wear "hydra packs". They carry their own water and doggy biscuits while hiking. Marion says they hoped that would slow them down some. No way! These are Dalmatians and it takes more than a few biscuits to slow them down. For every 6 miles that Marion and Terry hike, these guys probably do 30 at very high speed.
Here is an updated picture of Selia. She is one of the small but growing numbers of Dalmatians that have two copies of the UU gene for normal canine uric acid.
