Breeds Of The Week (25)

Breeds Of The Week (25) 1

The Bolognese

The Bolognese is a toy breed closely related to the Bichon Frise, originating as early as the 11th century in Bologna Italy. Among the wealthy, the Bolognese was a popular gift as they were bred to be lap dogs.
This beautiful beast is a bundle of affection, eager to please, and preferring the company of its loving family than being alone. They are likely to latch onto a particular family member and will not enjoy being apart from them!

Although the Bolognese will not be putting ‘Guard Dog’ on its Curriculum Vitae, he can legitimately put ‘will happily yap to alert owners of strange noises’.
As a low shedding breed they are prone to matting fur, so a daily brush is a must, with particular attention behind the ears, behind the legs, and stomach.
The Bolognese is a great companion if you need a little dog without high exercise needs. Daily walks are required as with any dog, but they will be happy enough with a few shorter walks and playing in the garden.

The Singapura

The Singapura is a tiny cat breed (at adult they will only reach up to 8lbs) a little cat with a little voice.
They originated in Singapore (unsurprisingly by the name!) relatively recently in 1965 and was likely a result of breeding between cats with an Abyssinian ticked gene and the Burmese gene. (A ticked coat is a type of tabby coat).
At only 4-8lbs the Singapura has (how do we say this politely?…) large ears for its size, and large eyes too, making it one very special and beautiful feline.
The Singapura may be small but it’s fearless, sociable, mischievous, and affectionate. Maybe not quite the lap cat as some, they do love to snuggle, and on a winters evening will happily cuddle up and keep you warmer than your favourite blanket.
