Canarian (despite her name, born outside the Spanish Kingdom at the late 20th century) is an occasional Wikipedia user, who usually writes articles to Finnish Wikipedia or even more often translates them from English or Spanish Wikipedia. She also sometimes tries to classify/identify images in Wikimedia Commons and merge items or add links to Wikidata. She is also a big fan of Wikiquote, especially Lost and Casablanca quotes.
Potsdam Greyhound pageEdit
With respect, the eleven known dogs, either owned or bred by Frederick, all 'Italian greyhounds' or 'windspiel' are buried next to him at Sans Souci Brandenburg. In German and other European canine literature these dogs are known as Italian greyhounds, the progenitors of the modern 'breed' of the same name. It would be more convincing if this page could offer some German source on this so-called 'Potsdam greyhound' other than the single reference to the English writer Morris - otherwise this article lacks any credibility.--Richard Hawkins (talk) 17:41, 10 March 2019 (UTC)
Please provide some primary (German and or Italian) source on this dog type (not a breed), it can only be the Windspiel, in which case this page is totally bogus. Desmond Morris is not an authority on Continental dog types.--Richard Hawkins (talk) 19:22, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
The name Canarian has been directed from the Canary Islands.
Because Canarian doesn't have better things to do in her life, she can often be seen updating Wikipedia articles or adding photos to Wikimedia Commons even in the middle of the night when normal people are sleeping. Sometimes when she steps out the Wikipedia world, she also enjoys travels to sunny places and listening to music. Somehow she has also managed to receive a higher degree education, despite of dedicating her life to Wikipedia.
