Litter due soon

We are pleased to say that Casia (Tolutim Chartreuse) is expecting puppies. The litter is due on the weekend of Crufts (13 March). We chose Harry (Ch Fakenham Flash Gordon) to be the sire, owned by Sid Bolt.

At seven weeks

Like Casia, Harry has a wonderful temperament and his puppies have had good hearing results. See the pedigree

We are looking for good owners. Casia’s first litter went to a variety of owners – experienced, new, families with young children. One of them has been shown and has done extremely well for her new and novice owners.

Enquiries and visits are welcome. Please contact us on 01453 890 783 or by email.

An article in DogWorld (18 February 2011) says that a project investigating the very complicated inheritance surrounding the incidence of hip dysplasia and elbow problems. The dalmatian community could learn something from it, in particular how complicated genetic inheritance can be investigated.

Have you any further thoughts about deafness?

This is the beginning of tolutim on the internet in an interactive manner. Up until now, the pages were static but full of information. From now on we hope that these dynamic pages will be as informative and perhaps a little more entertaining. However, that depends on all of our friends participating with us on the pages.
