This was our final show day and I had a good feeling about today! We arrived to the showgrounds and set up as usual. I did something a little different though. The last 3 days, Orso was allowed to hang out in his crate for quiet time before showing, but today I decided to pull him out and let him play a little tug, since he always gets fired up when he plays tug. Wow, I am not sure if that’s what did it, but Orso was definitely alert after our little game! I took him back to his area to clean him up and it was time to go in the ring.
Orso, as in the last 3 days, was alone in the 6-9 months class, so he took first in that class. Argento didn’t show today, so Orso took winner’s class aswell. He then went back in the ring to show for Best of Breed. He was in the ring with Saggio (his dad – now an AKC Champion), a couple of other champions and a grand champion – WOW, talk about excitement for us to see him among these great dogs! We knew he wouldn’t take Best of Breed, nonetheless we were so proud to see him in there! I think Orso was proud too because he was having his best “showing” so far! In the end, Orso took Best of Winners and earned his first 2 points toward his AKC championship! Way to go, Orso!
Below are some shots from today and a link to the Cane Corso results from today’s show.

After we finished up at the show, we headed back to the hotel to pack up our stuff and check-out. We stopped at a very cool salad place in downtown called Crispers before starting our drive home – Orso was laying attentively next to us throughout lunch hoping that pieces of baked flatbread would “mysteriously” drop to the ground. We wrapped up lunch and headed home with smiles on our faces for having had such a great experience at our first shows! Thank you to everyone who made our weekend so enjoyable and productive – ESPECIALLY ORSO THE CANE CORSO – we love you, baby bear!!
