Bremer's Mighty Tico CGC was the first Dalmatian I owned as an adult. I know that I should have contacted a breeder instead of obtaining him they way I did, but I have no regrets.
I went into the pet store to buy cat food and suddenly I was greeted by a black and white bundle of energy. Tico had just arrived at the pet store! Minutes later he was leaving it to enbark on his new life with me.
Tico was a loyal dog. We hiked everywhere together. He raised my 2 children with me. He could always be trusted with kids and other dogs...but not food. There is many a story to tell about food stealing and garbage can emptying, but we all loved him just the same.
Tico's health problems took there toll. He left us at the age of 9. I look forward to seeing you again, old friend.
PS Buddy boy, I visit our spot often and leave a stick for you :)
