Giving away the dalmation was for our own sanity as we lived in a residential area at the time and it needed more space to run. That precious baby needed to be on a farm which is where it eventually got too. It was so destructive like what you shared Donna. It chewed up automotive wiring too. That was the final straw and we we were so happy she found a good home. Your's ate a kiddie pool? That's crazy Donna.
