When we first brought Basso home, Stella our
Rottweiler, would not let him near her. When
he would try to lick her she would run up
the stairs and sit there so he couldn't get
to her. On the 4th day, out of nowhere, she
started running the yard in circles like a
greyhound; whenever she would get to him she
would jump over his head ...with the final
jump, she knocked him down and licked him a
few times. They have been inseparable since.
He is the sweetest puppy we have ever had.
Don't let Stella know I said that! We can't
wait to get up in the morning to be with
I was just telling Geo the other morning
that whenever I tell people the puppy is a
Cane Corso, they think I mean Presa Canario
and with all the scary press on those dogs,
even my vet, having never met a Cane Corso,
thought I meant a Presa and asked me why
would I want a dog like that! That was over
the phone. So, I started saying Italian
Mastiff. But then I thought Basso is so
Sweet and Amazing, I am doing a disservice
to Cane Corsos. He is a great ambassador.
I'm sure there will eventually be some bad
press when the wrong people get these
amazing beasts but what you are doing for
the breed will rise above all that.
I will continue to send photos as he grows.
He is in puppy school, just for puppy
Have a great weekend.
Jackie and Geo
P.S. - I forgot to tell you the funniest
thing, Basso is truly Italian. When I have
Jazz, Blues or Country on, he sits quietly.
As soon as I put Opera on, he starts howling
and doesn't stop. Especially to Caruso! I
might have to get him on the Letterman show!
Kidding of course.
