National Pet Week is just about our favorite time of year; we get to dedicate a whole week to our furry family members and celebrate how special they are. Whether companion, comedian, confidant or protector, our pets are always there for us and don’t ask much in return.

To obtain an AKC Championship a dog must earn a total of 15 points, including 2 majors under different judges. This win takes Manny almost half way there, with his total now at 6 points and one major! Being a well rounded dog, Manny has also been accumulating legs towards other titles as well. He is 2/3 of the way to his Coursing Ability (CA) title. Lure coursing, originally a sport reserved only for sight hounds, now offers the CA title for dogs of other breeds. This is something Dalmatians seem to excel at. It involves chasing a plastic lure on a string around a 600 yard course in an open field.
