I know what you’re thinking, “Oh, right, Lagotti Romagnolo, I see a half dozen of those every day!” Well, sure you do, but this is the first one we’ve seen around these parts. Yes, that’s right, even after seven years we’re still seeing new dog breeds.
Bosco is two years old, and is one of Autumn’s dog-sitting clients, from the rarefied altitudes of Pacific Heights.
Incidentally, ‘lago’ means ‘lake’ in Italian, and the ‘-otto’ ending is a diminutive with overtones of cuteness (if I’m not mistaken). Romagnolo means ‘from Romagna’. So Lagotto Romagnolo means ‘adorable little lake of the Romagna region of Italy’. Go fig, I guess, right?
