Cricket with her trophies earned in Novice.

Cricket was my first Dalmatian and first showdog and the beginning of my love affair with the breed. Although she came to me as a 7 month old kennel dog, we bonded immediately and she lived to please me. Her championship was earned quickly with four majors and several BoBs over Specials. Her obedience work was phenomenal, and her Novice career included four consecutive All Breed High In Trials in the US, and High In Trials at her only two Canadian shows. Crik's CDX was also earned quickly and with excellent scores.

Cricket died during a Caesarian section and most of her puppies were lost as well, but she will always live on in my heart. Thanks Cricket, for introducing me to such a terrific breed.
