Saturn was our oldest dog. Saturn
was definitely Don's dog, and enjoyed
rides in the truck. Daily walks across
the field and chasing chipmunks
helped keep him acting young and
being healthy until the very end.
Saturn accumulated all his single
championship point from the Bred By
Exhibitor class, but just wasn't
conformationally correct enough to
finish his AKC championship.
He did go to Canada with our very
good friends Gary and Penny
Robichaud where he earned several
Group 1's and 2's, and even a Best In
Show. In 1999 he ended up rated #10
Dalmatian in Canada
In the performance arena, Saturn did
compete in Novice obedience and
agility, but just couldn't pull off those
titles. In agility it was much more fun
to visit the ring crew and judges than
do the correct course. Can't complain
about a nice social dog!
And one of his shining moments was
during the making of "The 12 Dogs of
Christmas". Good Boy Saturn stood
in freezing cold water while being
bathed by several children. He kept
giving them kisses with soap suds
running down his nose. Saturn adores
children and MUST be petted any
chance he gets.
Saturn is a good, good boy!
