No Spark For Us

We brought our dalmatian puppy home with the intent that he would be a member of the family and a protector of our home. We weren’t aware at the time of the high strung nature of dalmatians. While our dog was very loving, he was also incredibly energetic and easily startled by the children. This caused him to nip at the little ones on more than one occasion. In the end, Sparky found a home on a wonderful farm not far from us where he was able to run off all of that dalmatian energy and live in bliss with a small herd of goats.
