BY BRIAN DONOVAN | Today’s featured dog is Macchia the Dalmatian. He is 1 year old, and fluent in English and Italian, just like his mother, Alice (not pronounced like the American “AL-ISS” but in Italian, so that it sounds like “ceviche.”

I met both of them last weekend at Il Piccolo (508 W. 28th St.).

While talking, she floated the idea of making a dog park out of the vacant lot on W. 29th and 10th Ave. I’m sort of taken with the idea and am looking into it. As for Macchia, there are reasons to be taken with him besides his grasp of two languages.

Other Skills Include:


—Laying down


—Active listening

—Negotiation and nonverbal communication.

Interests include eating random things on the street.

—He never wears the same thing twice.
