Dalmatian IS Croatian Dog
Mr. Alex Trebek
Jeopardy Show
New York, N.Y. via e-mail
March 22, 2004

Dear Mr. Trebek,

As Croatian Americans we were quite unpleasantly surprised regarding the
question and answer at a recent Jeopardy, in which the correct answer was
that the Dalmatian dog breed comes from Dalmatia - Yugoslavia.
We would like to make it perfectly clear that the answer should have been
that our Dalmatian dogs are from Dalmatia, Croatia. The Dalmatian coast
was part of the Croatian Kingdom already in the 11th century and has
never been anything else but Croatian, no matter if Croatia found itself
later ruled by Austro-Hungary,
in parts by Italy, or dominated by the Serbs during Yugoslavia. For the
past 12 years Croatia has finally been again a free, sovereign nation and
it is hoped that the mistake by Jeopardy will never be repeated again.
We are proud of our beautiful Dalmatia and of our Dalmatian dogs!
