Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carrie's mama Absolutely great
We got this for our then 8 month old daughter because we have a real dalmatian that she absolutely loves. We got her this and it was an immediate hit. Our daughter is now 2 1/2 years old and still loves her dalmatian. The quality is unbelievable. She drags him throughout the house and bounces up and down on him (though we don't let her bounce or stand on its head, its a hard(ish) material that I'm afraid may crack with enough force). We haven't had a single problem with it yet. Very well made.

I purchased three of the Dalmatians as centerpieces for a holiday dinner event for a company which develops toys for dogs and cats. These puppies were so adorable and beautifully crafted. They were the absolute hit of the night and everybody wanted to take them home. One of the girls who did, called me the next day to tell me that when she stopped by the drive-thru at a bank and had one of the puppies in the back seat, they gave her a cookie treat ... now that's a compliment! You have won me as a customer.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aunt Jodi Dalmation-The Perfect Gift
" Best Christmas present ever! " as reported by my 4 1/2 year old grand neice. I met several family members at a restaurant & brought her present with. To her surprise the wrapped gift was huge....her face lit up like a bright morning sunrise, as she exclaimed "It's a sitting firedog! I have never seen one." After unwrapping the Melissa & Dougie Dalmation she sat him in the both with us. People walking by thought he was real & had to do double takes. My neice begged her mother to buy him a real collar. The Dalmation is so life like it even has jowles. The Dalmation is always a conversation topic when company realizes he is not real. My neice LOVE her Dalmation & to make it even more special to her, her grandfather is Chief of the local fire department. This was my first Melissa and Dougie stuffed animal.

I just got my giant stuffed dalmatian and I couldn't be more thrilled! If you couldn't see the seams of the fabric you would think he was a real dog! Mine is named Pongo and he stands guard by the door until I want to hug him or make him pose for pictures. The only con I can think of is that I wish he was softer, but I guess if he was he wouldn't sit up as well as he does. Anyway, he's super-cute and I'm sure we'll have lots of good times together!
