Karen Ferrier's obsession with black dots on white backgrounds began about 17 years ago, when she brought home Ditto - a Dalmatian puppy.
While Ditto passed away a few years ago, Karen's obsession for dots has never waned. Her extensive spotty collection includes dozens of cuddly animals, clothing, jewelery, ornaments, puzzles and even Rollerblades.
She has candles, mugs, magnets and even toilet paper with spots. And the spots don't just stop there - she also wears them - on her sunglasses, shoes, hats and jacket!
If that's not enough dots for you - Karen even drives around in a dotted car, painted by her husband.
Karen says she still enjoys her collection - it's fun and always brings a smile on people's faces. However, what may be music to every Dalmatian or spot lover, is that Karen is trying to sell about 3,500 pieces from her collection. That's because she is moving and her new house does not have the space for all her spotted stuff. She estimates that it will fetch her about $2.400 US, which we hope doesn't all get re-cycled into more spotty stuff!
