Hi Folks! Welcome to the Bolzoni web site!

Although I can walk on water, nobody calls me God (yet...).

My name is Q (or Quintus) Derivato dei Sanchi. Those of you who, like I, had a classical education and are fluent in Latin know of course that "Q" and "Quintus" are perfectly equivalent.

I am building this web site, so please be patient to see the end result. Meanwhile I want to tell you a little about myself. By the way, the flag you see on the top left is the coat of arms of the city of Milan and the flag on the top right is the European Union's.

I was born on 21 December 2001 in the Northern Netherlands province of Friesland. My mum is Nashua Derivato dei Sanchi and my dad is Justin Derivato dei Sanchi. I have four brothers and four sisters (daddy is a real lad!)

My breed is Bracco Italiano, one of the two Italian gun dog breeds and the oldest gun dog breed in the world. My ancestors were already hunting with the Babylonians four thousand years ago. After fading into oblivion, our breed has been revitalised a few centuries ago in Italy; that's why we are considered to be an Italian breed.

My home pack is the Bolzoni pack. There are three members in the pack: I, Paolo and Elisabeth (or Els). Paolo and Els are both of the human breed (you know, those funny dogs who walk on two legs, cannot bark, can hardly smell and have the nasty habit to tell me what I should and should not do!).

Paolo is the pack leader (or so he thinks he is...) and is Milanese. There you are, now you know why the Milan coat of arms on this page. Els is Dutch from Brabant. All of us are convinced Europeans.

We live in Amsterdam but, whenever we can, we go to our summer house in Epen. Epen is a beautiful village in the 'hills land" of Southern Limburg.

That's enough for know, I have to get back to work; so much to do to build this site and all this in between my other duties!!!
