The girls are quite popular here in Modena! But they’re not just Brandy and Sienna anymore. They’re piccolino, carina, cucciolo and a host of other endearing nicknames people invent for them. My absolute favorite nickname is from the toddlers about town – they point with one little finger and call them “bow bow.“
It all sounds so much prettier in Italian, doesn’t it? They’ve turned into true Italian dogs – relaxing at the cafe to people watch!
