Hello,

Thank you for the honor of being the March Member of the month! I became a member of GPDC in 1980 but my involvement with Dalmatians started much earlier than that. I received my first Dal in 1958 when I was only 8 years old. He was the best friend I had during my childhood and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. Since then I have been owned by more Dalmatians than I can count. I lost track of how many champions I have been involved with in one way or another but none of that matters anyway. What does matter is the place each dog holds in my heart. They all touched me in one way or another but there have been four that held a deeper place. They were Bucky, Watson, Chloe and Garrett.

Dalmatians and the friends I have made because of them have been one of the most important things in my life. I have seen many people come and go and way too many pass away but one thing has been a constant and that is how wonderful this breed is and the other thing that has been constant is the fact that 95 % of the people in my life are there because of Dalmatians!

When I began showing I was learning from Barb Greenspan. After she moved to California I found a wonderful new traveling buddy. Nanci Good and I spent many years traveling to shows together and we had a wonderful time. As the years passed we both have slowed down considerable but we still manage to be involved with the dogs. I have found that I enjoy mentoring people who want to learn and have met some great friend through mentoring them.

I now am totally committed to helping increase the number of Dalmatians that will no longer be at risk of forming urate stones because of the genetic mutation hyperuricosuria!

I am recognized by the AKC as a Breeder of Merit. In addition to GPDC, I am also proud to be a member of Bushy Run Kennel Club and Dalmatians of North America. Oh I nearly forgot I am a member of the Dalmatian Club of America too. My website address is: http://rimrockdals.webs.com/

Yours in Dals,
Barb
