We got our first Dalmatian in 1990 - Solbo's Ebony N'Ivory. For many years we only had males, both for showing and for stud. Not until 2007 we felt that we knew enough about the breed to make a contribution and therefore ready for our first litter. On average we have 1 litter per year, and our kennel contains both dogs living with us and dogs on breeding contracts. I have been a member of the breeding committe of the Swedish Dalmatian Club for many years, as well as of the WAFDAL Health committee. I am a member of the Swedish Kennel Club and the following breed clubs: the Swedish Dalmatian Club, the Norwegian Dalmatian Club, Dalmatian Club of America and the British Dalmatian Club.
Our professions have given us the opportunity to work and live abroad, and these years have given us many friends in the spotted community around the world. Already 1997 we moved to Denver, Colorado, USA for 1½ year, and there we were fortunate to make contact with people that helped us purchase Labyrinth Perfect Harmony from Mrs Chris Dyker, Labyrinth kennel. He came with us back to Sweden and quickly became International and Nordic champion, as well as Nordic winner 1999. During the time in Denver, I was also able to help Solveig Jensen, T-Cart kennel, to import frozen semen from Ch Labyrinth Big Spender and Ch Roadpartner Billie Holiday, that both were used in Sweden. During 2000 we moved to Cambridge, UK to work and live there for 6 years. Both our sons were born in Cambridge during this period.
I have a M.Sc. in Molecular Biology and a Ph.D. in Molecular Immunology from the Medical faculty, Lund University, Sweden. After finishing my Ph.D., I have spent 12 years doing biomedical research abroad, in Denver, Cambridge and Copenhagen. Since 2013 I am back doing research in Sweden as a Senior Scientist and Lab Manager at Lund University. My husband Håkan has a M.Sc.E.E. from Lund Institute of Technology and has worked as a Consultant and Consultant Manager both abroad and in Sweden, and is currently CTO at a MedTech company in Lund, Sweden.
