Who is in the photo at right?
I'm Dewi Wihardja - a Communication Specialist and Copywriter; and for now I'm a volunteer and freelancer at Young Ambassadors.
My dog is called Bello E Impossibile (BEI). He's a male Yorkie terrier who is now 2 years and 8 months old.
What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?
Whenever I'm not busy or working, I always take him out with me whenever I go to cafe by myself or with friends in Milan.
I love to drink Italian Cappuccino.
Any treats for you or BEI on this occasion?
His treat would be normal 1/4 wheat croissant without sugar or any filler, plain.
How were you and BEI united?
I was searching for a dog and I found this breeder online. I didn't know that she was a famous Yorkie breeder in Italy. She was selling BEI at 11 months old at reimbursement price and I contacted her immediately.
How did your dog get his name? Any aliases?
His name is an abbreviation of Bello E Impossibile, or in English, Impossibly Beautiful. I never changed his name; it's original from his breeder as she was preparing him for dog show but he then grew up outside the normal yorkie size. He's 5 Kgs and his ears don't stand up, and for dog competitions yorkies shouldn't weigh over 3 Kgs and both ears have to stand right up if I'm not mistaken.
His alias is BEI, to make it shorter and simpler.
Cat, postman, squirrel...?
I always prefer to keep him inside the house unless I'm also outside.
The housing complex is based on several houses or apartments inside one with intercom; when there are postmen, they just put the mail inside the box or ring the intercom.
Ball, squeaky-toy, stick...?
He doesn't play ball. But he likes his chewing snack made of animal skin (usually cow).
Who is BEI's best pet-pal?
It's Euro, my friend's yorkie who got me in love in this breed. But unfortunately it's been a while since they've met because I have been busy.
What is BEI's best quality?
He has this beautiful three colour coat and silver hair like most yorkies.
Also, he doesn't bark a lot like other yorkies and he's easy to teach tricks and he remember some words.
If BEI could change one thing about you, what would it be?
It's the presence in the house. It's so amazing feeling only to know that when you come home, there is this little creature always waiting for you, smiling, wagging his tail, and just jumping while trying to lick you to greet, "mommy you're home." Even when I'm tired or sad, only to see his face expression can bring my good mood back.
If BEI could answer only one question in English, what would you ask him?
"What do you love to do best with me together and when you're alone at home?"
If Hollywood made a movie about your life in which BEI could speak, who should voice him?
He's a small dog... I'm not quite sure, but it has to be someone that sounds smart with not too low or deep voice.
