(E) Dalmatians are Croatia's dogs, and we are proud of them!

Dear Sir/Madam:

We happen to see your guide to purebred dogs and we are dismayed to see
you listing the Dalmatian's origins as "Yugoslavia". 

The Dalmatians have been bred in Dalmatia, which has for centuries been
part of Croatia, indeed the Croatian kingdom was established there in the
seventh century. Even as Croatia was part of Yugoslavia for seventy years
from 1918-1991, Dalmatia was still part of the Republic of Croatia. 

We urge you therefore to change this false information with all possible
speed. Dalmatians are Croatia's dogs, and we are proud of them!

Sincerely,

Hilda M. Foley

Dear Hilda:

Your letter to the American Kennel Club must have worked - here is a quote on the Dalmatian Dog from the AKC off their website: "The Dalmatian is believed to have come from Dalmatia, a region of CROATIA [emphasis added] located along the Adriatic Sea." I guess they finally bought a map :-)

Kindest regards,
Allen Milcic

    It is about time that someone set AKC straight! They need to be reminded that they are just a registry! They won't listen to any of us, after all we are just breeders...........
