Notice (per 07apr08):When this site first went on the web in Feb. 1996 there were less than 30 (very hard to find!) Dalmatian sites on the web. It was very time consuming to find sites in those days, I created this site as a guide to point other Dal enthusiasts to the sites I had found and visited. The site grew and evolved for several years.
As of 2008, a Google search using the keyword 'dalmatian' produces about 2,900,000 results within seconds. Therefore, IMO, most of the pages that existed on this site thru 2007 are no longer needed.
Also, I no longer have time to maintain pages other than this homepage and these few other pages:
"Djumping Djohno Award" Winners Page -
A unique Web Site Award!!! This is an award that is given by this Toby & Mickey site to Dalmatian sites that have special unique content. Very few sites can qualify for this award - it is not given lightly! Go see who the winners are, and visit them! (links checked and one link updated:28 mar. 2008 )
The story of lessons we learned since our Dal broke his tail.... and our advice for a possibly broken tail. (upd: 01apr2008 - new link added)
TRAVELING WITH DOGS - Your dog can have a good and safe trip (incl. on an airplane) if you prepare well for his/her trip. Valuable info on separate pages for easy printouts, also a page with links to excellent info. sites. (Reorganized: 02 Apr.2003 , Upd: 02 Apr. 2003) Tags and doc.s for the dog travel crate - This page has information + samples of an ID tag, and of a document you should provide on the crate (and can also give to the flight crew).
