It seems the Bouvier family had a Dalmatian in the mid 20th century.
I've had a few dogs in my life and loved them all very much. But when it comes to my Dalmatian, she's like a little sister to me.
I was pleased to find an old black and white photograph of Edith "little Edie" Beale with a dal. This photo was likely taken during her fashion model days.
I looked a bit further into the family history, and realized that this is probably Jacqueline Kennedy's dog. I'm happy to know that a wonderful dog like mine was wandering at Grey Gardens on East Hampton, during the estate's heyday. As an artist, I conjure up dream-like visuals of those summer days. You can nearly smell the salty sea air if you try.
