Quixote and Haka

26 March, 2009 (10:06) | Living in Europe | By: admin

Breed: Miniature Pinscher
Name: Quixote (pronounced Keeshote, or Quiche-óte)
Born Jan. 7, 2009
Came into my home the first day of Spring, 2009.

He is my tiny knight in shining armor, Don Quixote (only pronounced ala Catalan, Keeshote)

He has the same blue eyes as a pup my last dog (Pukka) had as a pup. He’s pinto sized – is perfect for Barcelona smaller space living, will fit easily in my bicycle basket.

So far he sleeps a lot, is not whiner but is silly and playful (like a kitten) when awake.

This is my first small breed dog. I’ve had 3 Dobermans in my dog history, and am delighted to find my mini is of the same intelligence.

This is Mark’s dog, Haka. She is very BIG and very dumb. She’s a sweet, loveable, gentle giant, a Dogue de Bordeaux. She was meant to be the alpha dog in this situation, but instead Quixote is already stealing her bones and toys from her. We are lucky she has a good disposition.haka-y-quixote1img_2809
They are the new Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, they are Pinky and the Brain (cartoon).
Quixote will always be small-
You can look forward to future blogs about life with my new compañero Quixote. He will always be small enough to fit in my bicycle basket, to fit in my backpack, to easily take onto buses, metros, taxis, trains, planes, most public places.
