    Couple With Dalmatians Say It's No Disney Movie
    MIAMI, Fla. Pati Dane takes care of 101 Dalmatians, but it is nothing like the Disney movies depict it, she says. It's expensive and trying. Dane and her husband, Mark, have been taking care of unwanted Dalmatians for 11 years. According to Dane, people buy Dalmatians when they see cute depictions of them in movies and abandon them later, when they realize how difficult they can be. One of the Danes' primary goals is to educate the public so they won't have to raise so many Dalmatians.

Activists charge that Disney promotes unhealthy stereotypes by making Dalmatians seem warm and cuddly when in fact they can be high-strung and unpredictable. This, they claim, leads to overbreeding and abandonment.
