It’s a well-known fact that many animal species, including companion animals, are called after Italian names. They are, to some extent, a consequence of the historical, cultural, and religious traditions surrounding animals.
From the Italian culture of the Renaissance and its accompanying history, names for dogs evolved, became unique, and created new types of people. For example, many Italian breeds of dogs, such as Ragazzi, Porscher and Vizsla, do not have Italian names (even though these are Italian names for dogs as well), which explains why the name has an Italian origin and is known as “Dog” in Italian.
This topic will open a vast can of worms. For many people, dog names are a touchy issue. Dog names are not for everyone.
Since the days of the Renaissance, many Italian names began to become synonymous with Italian dogs. And to this day, many Italian people are quite sentimental about their dogs as a result of an incident that occurred in the year 1496 when a group of Italian colonists, angered by the poor, cold conditions of a desert region in the south of Italy, decided to abandon their colony and return home without their Italian dogs.
Many of the things we experience everyday do not come as a surprise to you. For such a seemingly mundane event, the result can be very shocking. That’s true not just for us but also for your dog. Dogs can suddenly become ill, lose weight, suddenly lose interest in food. When our dog loses his appetite, he doesn’t lose his teeth, he doesn’t lose his hair, etc.
To understand the effects of such events, it is helpful to look at the history of the word. What happened in the 19th century? During the 19th century, the Spanish Inquisition conducted experiments to prove that a dog could be executed by means of religious means. To try and refute the conclusions of these experiments, some of the dogs used by the Inquisition in Spain were left in the care of doctors in other European countries.
