Dog Tip of The Day, May 11

A name synonymous with dogs is “Fido”.  Fido was actually an Italian dog that was discovered, injured lying in a ditch it Italy during WWII.  A man by the name of Carlo Soriani found the dog and nursed it back to health. They named the dog Fido which is Latin for “faithful”. Every day Fido would go to the bus stop with Carlo and watch him board the bus, then in the evening he would go to the bus stop to meet him. Carlo was killed one day in 1943 during bombardment of the factory where he worked. For fourteen years, Fido went to the bus stop every day, sniffing the air, waiting for Carlo to return. After Fido died, a statue was sculpted and placed in the town Borgo San Lorenzo, called “Monument to the dog Fido”.  I think this is a good reason to choose the name Fido for one of my future dogs.
