What does it mean?!?
"Dal" stands for Dalmatian and the "taru" comes from the Japanese word for firefly or lightning bug - hotaru
I have always had an interest in Japan, the culture, the gadgets and the language. Anime, or "Japanese Cartoons" have always been a favourite and still are.
Hotaru was one of the very first Japanese words I learnt. Don't ask why, I have no idea lol but it has always stuck with me as it is a very pretty word.
i guess its fitting since fireflies provide light in the darkness or show you a beautiful sight. You could easily discibe Dalmatians the same
Recently, i have placed a few pups into homes where they will be trained up as service dogs. Having one myself (A daltaru pup born and raised) I understand how much they can light up the dark for you.
