Gianluca Zito recently announced on Facebook that he would be giving his Czechoslovakian Wolfdog pup an original albeit controversial name: Covid 19, or Covid, for short.
Simply because this is the 19th newcomer to Gianluca’s home. But also, Gianluca believes that the term ‘Covid-19’ needs to be downplayed a bit…people who hear it now can’t help but feel worried and even scared. So why not associate the words to something adorable instead?
A social media hit
While some people think the name is in poor taste, the majority of those who have come across Gianluca's Facebook post think it's a wonderful idea:
“How wonderful!”, says another.
Though the way the virus is transmitted to and from dogs is still unclear, we think this is a very good way of dealing with the paranoia: better to take it all with a smile!
