Quintano * 07-09-2003 21-04-2014Quintano, called Quin, was from Italy. After the death of Amaranto I went to look for an other male that would be suitable for mating my bitches. I met Gabriella Adanti, who wanted to mate Edelweiss with the later legendary Cafiero di Lucus Angitiae (Video 1 - Video 2). Quin was terribly sweet and affectionate; preferably he would crawl into your lap. He didn't really like other dogs, especially not as he had to defend his ladies! He could be very stubborn and suspicious, particularly when he didn't trust someone or something. When the ice was broken, he loved to be petted and hugged. His greatest playmate was Catootje, but he could also play very nicely with Charybdys, the cat.
On the night of Easter Monday 2014 Quin wasn't feeling well; He was restless, whining, and his stomach felt really tight. I feared for bloat and rang the vet in the middle of the night, we could come right away. X-rays confirmed a large amount of air in the stomach. After emptying and gastric lavage everything seemed fine again. Relieved, we drove home, but unfortunately the next morning Quin collapsed and passed away. My little mouse is no more.
