MISE À DAY
Suki is a beautiful American Akita female, who will soon be 9 years old. We saw it several times in the clips that Damien Robitaille decided to put online at the start of the pandemic and which did a lot of good to many people. Damien tells us a lot about her.
What made you adopt this dog?
We had just moved into a house in Longueuil and there was room. With my spouse, at the time, we said to ourselves: “Why not! “I had dogs all my youth. At least a dozen, over time… My father was a farmer. We lived in the countryside. For me, dogs lived outside. They were free. Unfortunately, they all died hit by cars. Suki is the first dog that lives with me in a house.
Are you more “cat”, “dog” or “bird”?
More dog than cat, I imagine. And no more birds in the wild! (Laughs) I love dogs, but I'm not really into them. Some dogs sometimes even get on my nerves… On the other hand, I love my dog: a nice presence at home.
How to describe Suki's personality?
He's a good dog! She is quite calm. Suki is like a dog-cat. It really isn't high-maintenance. She's not a stickler and keeps her distance even though she's still around regardless. When I arrive, she only greets me for 10 seconds, then it's over… She goes back to her little business! She is quite independent. She likes to lounge alone on the couch or in the basement. She comes to see me when she is hungry or wants to go outside: she sits down and stares at me silently. Also, she is stubborn and very smart. If I show her something, she understands it in two seconds. She's a watchdog: she watches everything that's going on and she yelps if there's anyone suspicious in the street. She loves children! In the street, she stops to see them. She sits down and stares at them. Since she wants to say hello to everyone in the street, it can be quite an ordeal to go for a walk. (Laughs)
Qu did Suki give you during the pandemic?
She helped me a lot, because my children were in another country and I was alone at home. Luckily she was there. Also, it is thanks to her that I became so popular on the web. She was in my first music video released in the middle of a pandemic and I think she was the one who propelled me to another level of success!
Does she like music?< /strong>
I don't think she likes music. When she appears in my music videos and sits and stares at me, people think she does it because she loves music, but that's not it! It's more because she's fed up and wants something, either to eat or to go outside. It must be said that I often spend hours practicing… When she wants something, she comes to see me, sits down and stares at me. It's his way of saying, “Enough is enough! Please! (Laughs)
What is his favorite activity?
Surely not listen to my music! (Laughter) Chewing on wood. I heat with wood in the winter and I have cords in the basement. When I come down, there are bits of wood all over the floor.
Like master, like animal
We both keep our distance. .. (Laughs) I'm a bit of a loner, even though I like people. We are a little different from the others, unique in a way.
