    A few years ago when I found a stray calico and took her to the vet they told me that around 99% of calicos are indeed female...and on the rare chance that you do have a male calico, they will be infertile. I thought it was pretty interesting info myself.

    well, we went and looked at a female dalmatian yesterday........(drove over 45 minutes one way.......) her name is lucky and she is 5 years old. She has a calm but happy disposition.

    The visit went well, although someone else came to look at her right when we were leaving and we were having a hard time thinking what if the rescue people give her to the other family instead of us.........but they called last night and said that we would get her and they would bring her to our house today......
    She is a sweetie and we are all beyond excited to bring her into our family.

    Oh my look at the time.........I have to get busy , still have a few things to buy for her before she gets here........
    Smile it makes people wonder what you are up to.

    Thanks for the info, Libra! I'm glad to know that I was not totally hearing things.

    Many years ago a friend gave me a puppy when the mother quit nursing at 4 weeks. I had to buy 'bitch's' milk for him since he was so young. He adopted a beach towel I had on my front porch as his 'blankie' and would carry it around, sucking on one corner of it. It was quite a sight, as he grew to see this large black lab carrying around a security blanket. I would have to steal it from him just to wash it.
