It is often said that dogs are able to feel things long before they occur. The story of Maya, Jean-Paul Belmondo’s dog, is a perfect illustration of this. It is reported by Télé-Loisirs this Tuesday, September 7.”

The inimitable Bébel passed away on September 6 at the age of 88. The sacred monster of French cinema had marked generations of moviegoers by starring in cult films such as The Professional, The Breaker, The Magnificent, The Ace of Aces, The Man of Rio, A Man and His Dog or Fear on the City.”

Jean-Paul Belmondo was also known for his love for animals, especially dogs. In an interview with journalist Patrick Simonin in 2001, he reflected on this important aspect of his life and the place his canine friends had occupied since childhood. I was always raised in the middle of animals, recalled the actor, who explained that, in his youth, his mother had cats and he had dogs.”

With the latter, he had lived real love stories, in his words. The ties that united him to Maya, a female Yorkshire Terrier who died a year before this issue of La Grande Interview on TV5, were particularly strong. Their relationship was so intense that one day, when the native of Neuilly-sur-Seine was preparing to perform one of his countless stunts during a shoot, Maya had stood out for her quite unusual attitude.”
