Alberta Ferretti with Alfonso, an 18-month-old golden Lab.

The name: My brother gave Alfonso to me as a gift, and he chose the name. When I saw Alfonso and I looked into his eyes, I immediately realized that was the perfect name for him.

Personality: Patient, sweet, affectionate, exuberant…he is irreplaceable!

Best habit: He likes to walk with me on the beach at sunset.

Worst habit:
He jumps so high that he reaches out to your face.…He does that because he wants to imitate humans.

Favorite toy:
A plastic chicken.

Best story:
He can find everything, even the strangest things. For example, a few days ago he found my iPhone in the garden.
