feeding

I have just acquired a 2yr old dalmation. I have been feeding him once a day but he seems to be constantly searching for food. Should I feed him smaller quantities 2x a day maybe. What are your thoughts fellow owners?

Two dogs better than one???

My wife and I are debating whether or not to get another Yellow Lab puppey. Our dog now is 1 year old, amazingly well behaved and we're not sure if we should get him a brother. I need some advice, pros/cons if two are better than one. We have the room and a huge 260 acre park across the street where we go everyday to play. Do you think he would like a playmate or is he better off alone with us. I should add he gets along well with other dogs too.

Whats wrong with my Dalmatian?

My Dalmatian, Pongo is 7 years old and he is constantly bloaded in the stomach. The vet says his liver enzymes are high. Tried a new expensive food for liver problems. This increased his liver enzymes. Now my vet has him on a antiboitic called clavamox. She thinks he may have an infection inside. She wants to take xrays of his liver. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do? He acts like he did when he was 2 years old, boucy and happy and always smiling. Has anyone had this problem before with their dalmation. Pongo has always been a healthy dalmatian. Thanks, Barbie

Dal Help, Info Please

Hey - I'm looking to adopt a new dog. My 11 yr old lab just died (tear) and I was looking at Dalmations. I have heard and have been told that they are wild cards and extremely rambunxious(sp) but I read that they are fast learners and good at commands. Can anyone help me out?
