  • berty: Hey Natalia! Tell us a few words about you and your pup.
  • Natalia: Hey, I'm Natalia, the founder and designer of the Kopi jewelry brand. Boni, my faithful companion, is a red toy poodle, she has a sweet caramel nose 😍, she turns 2 in a month. She’s incredibly clever and lovely plush ball. It’s impossible not to love her :).

     

  • berty: Have you always wanted a dog? How did it happen that you decided to choose Boni?
  • Natalia: I've always wanted to have a dog! In the past I didn’t have the right conditions for that. But then the moment has come and my decision matured. I started to think about the right breed for me. I was looking for hypoallergenic rather small breed, because many people close to me suffer for allergy. I started reading about the different breeds and their character and I fell on the poodle! Despite the fact that people stereotypically think of this breed as not very smart, haughty, and like a candy with pompoms, it is actually one of the smartest dogs that exist:). They are very friendly and devoted to the owner and they live long!

     

  • berty: Do you think that time spent with Boni influences your creativity at work?
  • Natalia: For sure! She is a great friend and my little furry antidepressant :). When she sees that I am working and I am focused on something, she immediately feels it and lies politely right next to me, watching over me;). Her company has a positive effect on me, I am always smiling with her :). Boni is quite a calm dog, but also very cheerful :).

     

  • berty: Many pet parents emphasize strengthening relationship with their dogs during a pandemic. It was probably because we spent more time at home. Did Boni's presence make it easier for you to survive the lockdown?
  • Natalia: No doubts! It was exactly like that :). I can't imagine sitting totally alone without Boni. However, the dog is very motivating! You have to get up, walk the dog, play with him, spend time and pay attention. I think that if I was alone for such a long time, it could end badly;).

     

  • berty: And the last question - where did the name come from?
  • Natalia: When I was a kid, I had my beloved dog named Boni, so my Boni is actually Boni II, although I usually call her Bońcia or Bonita;).
