    Great looking dog and I agree with you on the ears as I've never been able to understand that at all along with bobbing the tail.

    What a cutie!!! I much prefer dogs in their natural state too. I like the floppy ears and tail.

    He's adorable and looks like he will be a huge handful. Kind of reminds me of Hooch. I hope he won't be a drooler, for your sake.

    If later his size proves to be crazy big, let me know, I may have a saddle that fits him. kidding.

    he's had a second one, a female, I think a few months in age apart, He's kept them in daily, extended contact with a number of other dogs and are both quite playful, Neither one has gotten into any real problems other than normal results of rough housing and don't seem to need any more watchfulness or correction than any other dog. They are far from shy about approaching other dogs or people and haven't displayed any anxiety over strangers approaching them or the owner. they are extremely energetic, playful and will run around the island non stop with others. Like I say though these dogs have been around lots of people and dogs since the get go, quite impressive actually considering the owner is so mellow lol.
    If you lend someone $20 and never see them again, It was probably worth the 20

    I have not posted here in quite a number of years 2007, and the last replies were in 2009. I should have kept you guys up to date.

    My boy Coraggio passed away yesterday morning around 10:45 am February 22 2016 just over 8 1/2 years old. Born July 11 2007 both Coraggio and Roma (brother and sister). He always wanted to be close to me. He suffered an apparent heart failure.

    I took them to the new dog park for the first time beside the Humane Society just a few days ago. A friend was there with his dog so I thought I would stop in and let my dogs out. They had a great time.

    Coraggio was my first dog with Roma to follow him 2 or 3 months later. They were purchased from Bella Conbrio in Minnesota. They wanted to get Roma in a house soon as possible. She was the last one of the litter. Her picture was adorable and the price was great. I also got Roma as a companion for Coraggio. They were always together, inseparable.

    The breed has a life expectancy of 10-11 years. Coraggio went out on me a little earlier than I would have liked. I will miss him dearly.

    Most of my pictures of the dogs were from earlier in their life from months to 4 years old on an SD card at the house. I was thinking the other day I don't have much for later pictures and I should get some. Time ran out on me. I will post 3 or 4 in my next post. It is a very sad day for me and Roma.

    I tried to make the pictures small. Hopefully you guys with slower internet service don't have a problem.

    I wanted to inform everyone my baby girl Roma has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge along with her brother on December 21 probably shortly after 10pm. Ten months after her brother. She wanted outside around 10pm and when I noticed she wasn't back at the door longer than normal I feared the worst and found her on the side of the driveway at 3am December 22. It appears she had passed not long after letting her out. I am guessing heart failure like her brother common in these large breeds.

    I am still trying to get over the loss of Coraggio 10 months ago. It will be very hard not having them around any longer as I sit here alone once again thinking of them. Words can't describe the joy and happiness the 2 dogs brought me. I would do it all over again.Both will be dearly missed. It has been a sad year.

    Picture of Roma looking and waiting for her brother shortly after his passing.
