The Parmesan Princess is our Bolognese dog. She loves any kind of cheese. We have never seen anything like it. She will pass up meat in favor of cheese. And we have yet to find a cheese that she won't eat.
The Bolognese are a rare breed with roots back to 13th century Renaissance Italy. Traditionally, they have been dogs of royalty. Famous Bolo owners include: the Medicis, Madame la Marquise de Pompadour, Catherine the Great, Maria Therese and Elizabeth of Manchukuo. These little bundles of joy were almost extinct after WWII. Steadily, they are making a come back (mainly in Italy and the Czech Republic).
What makes these dogs so special? Their personality of course.They give companion dog a new meaning. They are highly intelligent and highly stubborn at the same time. They are loyal with family and reserved with strangers. Bolos are great with kids are not yappers like most small breeds. With all that said, Bolos are high maintenance propositions. They have to be brushed daily. Bolos have human-like hair, meaning no allergies. Bolos require a lot of attention. They do not like to be left alone for long periods of time and they will let you know when they want to play. They are true companion dogs. Bolos are pure white and generally weigh less than 10 pounds.
