Default How do you pronounce?

How do you pronounce Cane Corso? I always thought it was cane (like a walking cane) Course O (pronounce letter o)

At a Rally-O competition I went to someone had one (She was SO loving) and she said she was pronounced Con ay Course O (as if the e in cane had an accent on it). So how do you say it, I assumed she was right since she does own one.

These recent pronunciation threads have got me thinking. You know, I used to pronounce Bichon Frise "Bitchin' fries"? LOL

I always stumble over Cane Corso. I still want to know how to really pronounce Kooikerhondje too.

oh... and fila? I've only heard someone refer to them in person once. They said "feela" but they're sentence was
"I don't know what mix it is, the person we bought it from said it had some feela in it" so who knows.

And Groenandael (sp?)???

I've always said Cane Course-O. The more you know.

There are heaps of breeds I can't pronounce because I've only read about them, not talked about them.
