    Dalmations are a nifty breed. They were actually bred to protect carriage horses. People say their presence has a naturally calming effect on horses. They were basically fighting dogs though, experts at running alongside horses and even between their legs at times (at full speed) to fight off stray dogs who would nip at their heels, all at full speed without missing a stride. Amazing feat really. Those dogs can run *forever* without getting tired. Super strong too, pound for pound one of the tougher breeds around even though it's not as obvious as with some other breeds. I love Dalmations, they've got a lot of character.

    I saw a video once of a Dalmation running with a horse carriage and it was astounding. The horse just kept cruising no matter what (fast) and the dog was weaving in and out through the horse's legs, sometimes fully underneath the horse's belly for a few strides at a time. Never seen anything like it in my whole life. Can you imagine trying to run underneath a horse at full pace?

    Being a HUGE fan of nature though I really wonder what it is about Dalmations which makes the horses ignore them, because if you try that exact same feat with a different breed, i.e. Sheperd or Terrier, the horse's don't go for it apparently. They get scared. There's something intrinsic to Dalmations which horses find specifically unobjectionable. Which is actually quite odd because if you hang around Dalmations you notice immediately that they are not particularly calm dogs, i.e. like sheepdogs. Dalmations are reasonably high strung. Anyhooo... Nature never fails to amaze and entertain me.

    Yes, every year on April 15th!!!

    Thank you for the wonderful facts. My brother in law had one, he named him Zigfield Rigamortis Barry. He was a wonderful dog. They can be real mean though, wonderful protectors. I love them too. Down with Cruella Devil!!!

    Wonderful template, Steve.

    Yes, exactly. You definitely don't want to get on the wrong side of a Dalmation. Great name, love it.
