What I saw at San Diego Comic Con 2014

Every year at this time, the San Diego Comic Con rolls into town, brining thousands of attendees with it. I remember going to Comic Con in the mid-90s, when it was small. The biggest star I saw back then was Adam West, who was signing autographs for ten bucks a pop. Now, it’s the West Coast’s center of sci-fi, comics, and fantasy action, with what seems like the whole entertainment industry involved.

I didn’t have tickets to get inside the Convention Center, so I hung around downtown and took some pictures.

La Jolla Photoblogging

Chris and I took some time to head down to La Jolla on today and take some photographs. The coast at La Jolla is home to loads of marine life, and they’re so used to people that you can get pretty close to them without frightening them. Which we did. All the pics are clickable for hi-res versions.

A little Photoblogging

Chris and I went downtown to take some pictures. This time, instead of lugging around an SLR, I took my new Panasonic Lumix FZ200. It’s a 12.1 megapixel bridge camera, with a 28mm-600mm superzoom lens. I wanted to see how it would do as a walking-around camera. I think the answer is, "very well."

Reserve a bundle of canine joy!

My Cane Corso is expecting her first and only litter. Mastiff Cane Corso Mastiff puppies in San Diego.  These Purebred, ICCF/CCAA-Registered puppies will be arriving in the middle of January 2010.  The puppies will be available to go home with you at the middle of March.

Sire is a European Cane Corso import, dame is first generation American born. Both are registered purebreds.

We are located in San Diego, California.  Actually Contessa and her puppies will be residing in Escondido which is San Diego North County. If you are looking for Cane Corso puppies, we are centrally located close to Rancho Bernardo, Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Marcos and more.

See more of Contessa on a video posted on YouTube at the link below.

Contessa is well trained and has a wonderful temperament. Her puppies will begin their socialization and training from the moment they are born to create Cane Corso puppies with fine temperments like their parents.

We have hundreds of photos of Contessa and Vittorio Cane Corso available upon request and more when the puppys are born.

Today, we took Contessa to the vet to get a puppy count. The xrays showed a minimium of 8 puppys.

7 Lucky people will get a wonderful new family member (we’re keeping one).

Be sure to contact us now if you are interested in a puppy, we will send out notifications and updates via email.

We expect that Contessa will whelp around January 18, 2010.

All Cane Corso Puppies will have the following before they are sent to their new families:

1- Puppy tail and dewclaw removal
2- First set of vaccines and health evaluation
3- Puppy Deworming
4- Love, socialization and continous training up until the day they are sent to their new families.

Contessa, the expectant mother.
