Introducing Aberdeen's Long Time Coming, also known as Fenway.
Fenway is the latest Dalmatian to join the home of Shelley Gallagher. Born July 26th 2010. He is BAER bilateral hearing and is Uu for the normal uric acid gene.
The plans are that Fenway will be a therapy dog in the future. He is already practicing his skills and will test for the therapy dog designation after he turns a year old.
Fenway's dam is Aberdeen's Deal or No Deal, "DeeDee" and his sire is Ch. Fiacre's Calling Card "Gibson". He was bred by Denise Powell.

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.

Will was born June 5 2007 and came to live with us when he was 11 weeks old. We quickly realized that this young man was a wonderful ambassador of the breed. There wasn't a dog, cat or person that he didn't charm with his good manners and cheerful disposition. However he heard out of one ear ( known as having Unilateral hearing) and therefore could not pass his wonderful genes on. He is leaving this job to his brother Mickie.
Will's favorite thing to do ( other than eat) is to run every day in the mountains at the back of Los Alamos and in the mountains and canyons of Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico.
Pictured at the top with Will, is a new addition to the family. Her name is Lyra and she too is a normal uric acid Dalmatian. There will be more information to come shortly about this sweet young dog.

Dotter's Eyes of the World-- AKA "Tie-Dye," "Ty," and now "Tie Fighter" Sire: CH Woodwynd Ghost of Gotha "Boo" Dam: Aberdeen And Dotter's Ataraxis "Layla". Ty's 5-year old owner wanted to name his dog after his favorite Star Wars character, Darth Vader. He had been the "tie-dye" puppy due to the color of his ribbon, and we called him "Ty" for nearly a year that he was with us. To go with the Tie-Dye theme, his registered name is after one of my favorite Grateful Dead songs, "Eyes of the World" because" the eyes of the world" are on these VERY special puppies! Fortunately I have 2 sons and know my Star Wars trivia, so when Gareth said he wanted to name the 1-year old dog "Darth Vader," I asked him, "What kind of ship did Darth Vader fly?" He quickly answered, "Tie Fighter!" So Ty got to keep his name, which is now "Tie." (Whew!!)
