Heartland Dalmatian Club of Greater Kansas City – Show Results

4oth Anniversary Shows dedicated in memory of founding member Ila Watts


Ila Watts (Sept. 16, 1925 – Jan. 31, 2020)
Ila Watts was a founding member of the Heartland Dalmatian Club of Greater Kansas City, formerly known as the Central States Dalmatian Club. She and her husband, Harry Watts, purchased their first Dalmatian, Scamp, around 1976 to be their pet. However, a friend from an obedience class convinced Ila that she should try showing him and it didn’t take long before Scamp earned his championship. This started an almost 45-year journey into the world of dog shows and Dalmatians.  They owned, showed, and bred under the kennel name Dal Maura Dalmatians. Three of her grandchildren also became involved in showing and traveling to dog shows in their pull-behind camper. Many, many fond memories of dog shows, gatherings, and friends followed through the years including traveling to Canada as well as earning multiple titles for their Dals.  A particular favorite, Duke (Am/Can Ch. Dal Maura’s California Cowboy), was even nationally ranked at one point in his career and was invited to compete at the Westminster Kennel Club show.  Ila dearly loved all of her Dals as well as all of the many great life-long friends she met along the way.

Thank you to all who helped support our 2021 40th Anniversary Specialty! Show Chairs John and Jennifer Cramer did a great job once again. And special thank you to Trophy Chairperson Sharon Rucksdashel for all the wonderful trophy items! She went above and beyond to make it a memorable specialty. Special thank you to her daughter Katie for helping organize the silent auction that helped raise funds for our coffers.
And thank you to all of the exhibitors who came to make this a five point Major specialty and all-breed shows!
