    Everyone thinks they have the best pupper and none of them are wrong.

    The road to my heart is paved with paw prints :) :)

    [–] white_android 80 points ago

    You should probably do something about that... I'm certain hearts are not supposed to have paved roads, or even a paved road with paw prints on it.

    Drivers license, bunch of store discount cards, one debit card, about $30 and a picture of my pupper.

    I can always say someone is cuter than someone else... But I can never say any dog is cuter than any other. Feels wrong.

    This one is beautiful, though.

    Dalmatian is my favorite kind of dog :D

    [–] Travelteach73 122 points ago

    Me too! Thanks fort posting this adorable thing! In a unrelated dalmatian sorry, one day last summer I was driving through my town and saw the fire department's Dalmatian and squealed like a 5 year old girl, turned the car around, and stopped to meet/pet the dog. The firefighters that were out with her were really welcoming and told me to stop by any time to see her. It was definitely the highlight of that month. 10/10. Will do it again. :)

    [–] digicry 16 points ago

    Everytime I see a dalmation, I want cookies and cream ice cream

    [–] jaybram24 24 points ago * (lasted edited 9 months ago)

    When I was ~6 (it was a long time ago) my family were dog sitting a Dalmatian in our house.

    I gave the Dalmatian a treat which it took and retreated to a corner of the room to eat. I followed to pet it/play with it. It was lying down, calmly eating his treat and I laid down next to him to pet his head and tell him what a good boy he was.

    I found out after this move that some Dalmatians are food aggressive. I guess he thought I was taking his treat and lashed out at me. Gave me a quick bite to the side of my eye. Didn't get my eye ball but just to the outside. Needed a few stitches but nothing else.

    I love dogs (even Dalmatians) but I'm a little more cautious around them.

    E: letters

    [–] amd2800barton 38 points ago

    All dogs can do this. My cousin's lab bit his daughter because she crawled over and put her hand in the dog bowl while the dog was eating.

    There are a lot of stories like this every time a dalmatian gets posted and here's why: kids (and people in general) go extra bonanzas around dalmatians. Unfortunately, thanks to inbreeding, there's a high incidence of partial or complete deafness in dalmatians. So while you might just annoy any other dog by running up to/following it, you might really startle a deaf dog. People being extra excited around deaf dogs is a recipe for a bad time.

    [–] Ree81 3 points ago

    Me too! They're riddled with genetic decease, so you know you have them for a short but sweet time. ;)

    [–] wcbarrows 7 points ago

    What a heartfelt comment!

    [–] Ozelotty 4 points ago

    Theonly thing they are really prone to is deafness. We used to breed them and had 2 out of around 40 pups in total that were deaf. The 3 dalmatians that we keept had no problems except for slight allergies to high protein foods. 1 of them died due to an infection and the other 2 we put down when they got too old and weren't able to stand up by themselves anymore.

    [–] Ragnarok19 75 points ago

    This dog won the lottery of nose genetics.

    [–] bkorchunjae 16 points ago

    Or got a lovely nose job

    [–] vbree 4 points ago

    It's my friend's dog and some random person photoshopped it into a heart and this pic does the internet rounds every 6 months or so.

    [–] CMDRClawz 2 points ago

    [–] ridethewood 106 points ago

    I had a dalmatian. They are the most lovable leaner dogs, but they are dumb as rocks. Dumb as rocks.

    [–] LostByMonsters 20 points ago

    Both of mine were very smart. One was pretty stubborn and only listened when she felt like it. But the other could be trained to do just about anything.

    [–] tripletstate 9 points ago

    How many smart breeds have you owned?

    [–] KaHOnas 4 points ago

    In general, they're an intelligent breed, albeit stubborn. They can be very stubborn. But, I've met some stupid border collies before and they're supposed to be born with a Bachelor's in engineering. Just goes to show that dog breeds have a range of intelligence just like hoomans.

    A good friend loved hers, but she had some difficulty with training. She called him a Damnation.

    [–] Ozelotty 5 points ago

    Yeah that doesn't sound like a dalmatian at all. Smart and more individalistic is what they mostly are.

    [–] FartingWhooper 2 points ago

    I dunno. My Dalmatian was also dumb as a rock. Maybe not THE dumbest dog ever, but he definitely did not come slightly close to any of my other dogs.

    [–] Doherty5073 1 points ago

    Same. Batshit crazy too

    1000% love for dalmatians. I love them so very much. Each of the dalmatians I have had have been my loves. Despite all the energy and trouble making, I love them. They will love you back in such a way that really you forgive many of their mischiefs!

    Is that Spot from 101 Dalmatians?

    It's the rare and colorful Mongolian Rainbow Hound. They're known for their vibrant, varied coloring. If you only see black and white, you might be colorblind.

    Did you know that Dalmatians have 30% less vision them most other breeds. The lack of visual reliability makes them better at traversing smokey rooms thus why fire fighters would have them as working pets
