They say don't work with children or animals, but they're obviously not aware of the 405's obsession for all things cat-related. Wait, we mean dog-related. Yes, dogs.

Following our recent feature on Peace and Chili, we sent Irma Collín to hang out with LCC and their dog Obélix on a beach in Northern Spain. What more could you ask for?

Firstly, what's your dog's name and what made you pick it (the name and the dog)?
He's Obélix. It's his given name, chosen by the breeder. We really love this name! It's perfect because Ana is a big fan of Astérix & Obélix and especially because Obélix is also a food lover and a romantic, just like the Gallic. To reduce it we sometimes call him Obi, a gesture to Obi Wan Kenobi. Respect.

When did you get the dog and how would you describe your relationship?
It was on September, 2012. Obélix lived in the breeder's house (he is a friend), but his dog father started to cause trouble because he's a typical alpha-male and Obélix doesn't like fights. So, at the same time, we're looking for a Spanish Water Dog and Obélix appeared! We have to say though, they still meet at the beach and at the countryside and there's no problems. Her father is only a hard guy at the breeder's. Obélix is without a doubt a hippie.

What's your dog's favourite toy?
The slippers!

Do you think your dog likes your music?
Not at all! He doesn't like noisy or dark sounds. Sometimes he goes out of the studio. But, recently he's given up. He loves classical music, especially piano music. And soul music, calm jazz and reggae. He also likes The Smiths.

Has your dog shown any musical talent?
He's very sensitive. When he listens to the piano, he sighs! We're sure if he could play something, he would be a great composer.

If your dog was a famous jazz musician, who would he be?
We think he would be Chet Baker. He's so sweet and melancholic...

Does your dog have any special skills?
Yes, he's like Messi - he's an ace dribbler with the ball!

How many pigeons has the dog "presented" you with?
We have to confess: Obi loves to run after cats but they are so fast. He discovered that pigeons usually eat bread, so, as he really loves bread he's a specialist at shooing them away and hunting down the bread! He never presents it... he always eats it!

What is your favourite celebrity dog (real or fictional)?
Ana: Must to be two, Dino and Scooby Doo! Uge: Muttley!

Lastly, what do you have coming up (non-dog related) that we should know about?
We've just released our album d/evolution, remixed on Editions Mego. We're currently putting together a soundtrack for a film, and creating new music. In June, we're going to play at Sónar Festival at a special Mego showcase.
