FYREHOUSE DALMATIANS

In Memoriam 

Betty Herman 1933 - 2003

When each of us received our first Fyrehouse Dalmatian from Betty Herman, we knew of the pup’s championship parentage, carefully bred from her 25 years of judging, obedience training, and breeding expertise. 

But we didn’t know two important facts: 

That a lifetime friend accompanied this pup: one just a phone call away, one who would share our “growing pains,” answer questions on training and feeding, and especially one who would delight with us in our dog’s antics and abilities.  

That we would suffer a lifetime of exclamations: “Your dog can’t be a Dalmatian---it’s too calm!”  Or “I’ve never seen such mellow temperament!” 

And if we dared to complain about such pleasant temperament, we can almost hear a snappy reply from our spunky friend…. 

Thank you, our dear Betty. We will all miss you.

Great Grandmother Fyrehouse Folly, matriarch of many AKC champions,
thank you for giving us 14 wonderful years. Your sweet presence as well as
that of all your progeny have given many families quantities of love,
affection, and delight. We miss you.

Olivia's Memorial
Fyrehouse Phoenix (aka Olivia) May 2004 to February 2018)
Loving and sweet-tempered Olivia was a joy throughout her life. A terrific mother, fifteen or more of her babies went onto become AKC Champions and several were among the top 20 Dalmatians in the nation! In this picture, I can almost hear her instructing her daughter Fyrehouse Fiona (left) immediately after delivery of Fiona's first litter: "Now Fiona, this is how to clean a pup." Olivia brought great delight to the forty or so families who were lucky enough to receive one of her gentle pups.
