A couple need to go out to the takeway for dinner, so they leave their German Shepherd home, with a GoPro video camera attached.

Some have brown spots and they are known as “liver.” Dalmatians were coach dogs, protecting the coach, drivers and passengers. It has also been said there are pictures of dalmatians following Roman chariots. How do dalmatians connect with George Washington? The first president was a dog lover.
