Jaik - better known as 'little man' - evolved from a chance mating in a suburban Perth backyard, to win at breed, group and show level where temperament, freedom of movement and balance were among the judging criteria.
Such qualities have been recognised by Dalmatian specialists such as Rick Baker (SA), Dianne Besoff (NSW), Fran Minter (Qld) and Colin MacDonald (RSA).
Jaik's ascendancy would not have occurred without the support of Perth's Dalmatian breeders, particularly Pam (Raybrook) and Lorraine (Lorgary); other group seven supporters, notably Jackie Rossi and Mark Chambers; and Jaik's very clever handler, Ashlea Stanton.
An invitee on four consecutive occasions to Western Australia's Contest of Winners, Jaik and Ashlea won this prestigous event in 2004.
A very BIG thank you to everyone. We couldn't have done it without you!
