    **** Zu. No, no, no, no, no.

    And it irks the ever living snot out of me that our "breed" labeling that we use at work doesn't have an option for American Pit Bull Terrier. It is just pit bull. Not even Pit Bull Terrier. pit bull. UGH.

    Cane Corso I would say 90 % of the time is pronounced incorrectly. Most people get Rottweilers fine here now.

    The first word "CANE" is pronounced as you would read the following letters "KAH-NAYE" and not like "Sugar Cane". The second word is pronounced as it is read "Kor-so"

    And I agree that someone breeding the breed and not being able to pronounce the name correctly is just disheartening.

    I said Mal-In-Oi for agesssss... *hides in corner*
    Daschund is another one I got wrong for ages longer than I should have.

    Boerbels, Griffon Bruxellois and Bouvier Des Flandres I avoid saying in public, anyone care to educate me?

    I'm proud of being able to pronounce Xoloitzcuintle even if I have to google it to spell it. I havn't got a chance to pull that one out in public yet to show off.

    Yeah, like people who try to say Weimaraner in a cheesy faux German accent, right?

    If I remember correctly, according to the Animal planet's presentation of Crufts they said it "Griff-on Broo-sell-wah". And I say it "Boo-vee-A deh Flah-n-drah". And I just say it Mexican "Show-Low", screw the rest, lol.

    I've been pronounce Karelian Kuh-ril-li-en, but then again I don't own the breed, and I don't know anyone who owns one in real life. So... am I pronouncing it wrong? Haha

    But seriously, I tend to pronounce things wrong, especially when it is something I have only read, and never heard talked about, but I can pronounce Kuvasz (Hungarian pride!), Malinois, etc.

    But why do I keep seeing dachshund spelled daschund? And vice versa? I don't know how to spell it, so every time I look it up I get confused, haha.

    On the plus side, a lot of Bouv people abbreviate to Bouv or Bouvier. At least the ones I know.

    It's Pem-brook.... I hear Pem-broke (as in fixed vs. broken)a lot from other people.

    Ever been to "Pembroke pines" FL? Seen a "babbling Brook"? But the way some people emphasize the "OO" get's really annoying, almost more I guess like "Brewk". But the "Welch" and "Cor-jeez", UGH! The worst.

    I've never heard any say Pembroke differently than Pem-brook, but I just realize that I've really only ever heard anyone around her say "corgi" they never distinguish...in fact I don't think I've ever seen a Cardi here.

    wait...how do you say Boerboel? I say BO'R-BO'L...er IDK how to type it out even. I guess closest to like BOAR-BUL?
