ITOLOGIE N°33 - THE SACRED HEART OF A BLASFEMOUS WELSHIE
How does a Welshie conquer our hearts? We all know they are quite tough cookies. And yet, I can't stay far away from Ito for too long.
Ito and I go everywhere together, from Trieste, our Mitteleuropean town by the sea, or Milano, where we hardly work, ou South to Apuglia or Rome, East in the islands of the Balkans where my father was born, or West to France where my mother was born, or Florence where my grandfather came from, and North in Switzerland where Ito chased his favorite squirrels.
Anywhere we went, we met someone who had a Welsh Terrier and, seeing Ito, I saw them laughing with tears in their eyes, remembering their furry love.
'He was a rascal! I wish he was here!'
'She hated the maid! But sure she loved me!'
'He ate all my left shoes, and yet, I'd give him my Prada's now!'
They win our hearts by doing whatever they want with our hearts.
You'll find Sacred Hearts in baroque Italian churches, as a gift to the Madonna,
the Holy Mother, asking or thanking for a miracle.
I've been blessed by Ito's companionship.
Not easy, yet fulfilling.
