The Trouble with FAX Machines...

While organizing some image folders, I ran into an image of a FAX which someone had been trying to send me some time ago. As occasionally happens with old FAX machines, the image ran into an unfortunate slowdown during the copy and transmission phase.

This is the unfortunate result of mangled FAX from a copy of a treasured photo.

Apologies to the judge who has no relation to any of the following fine folks below...

Still... the image is a keeper. :)

Yann Arthus-Bertrand photography

Beautiful photos by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, many provided in huge sizes suitable for wallpaper.

Dozens of beautiful photos of horses from around the world and many great photos of impressive farm animals and landscapes as well as a series of charming pics of French working people - from architect to pizza boy! :)

Some favorites...

There are some dog and cat photos (not presented as wallpapers) in part one of the network of sites. No photos of Turkish dogs but there are some pics of Turkish landscape with thoughtful commentary.

Check out the critter pics here!

Designer Dogs and imutts...

Know anyone that wants a Designer dog?
Here, have them take this test!

Now how about an i-Dog? Man's best accessory?

Looks cute anyway. :)

I think I like my dogs best. :)

Anatolian Halloween Costume - Have a Cow!

Sassy is her name.
A contented and happy California cow of the Anatolian breed.
#-script for cow: *chew cud, bat eyelashes and swivel ears back and forth*

Treva says that Sassy is the two time winner of the Petaluma costume contest - 2005 is the second year in a row that she has won. The prize for the contest is a suite at Sheraton on the River in Petaluma and the cow gets to go!

When I take a look at the pics, I think she definitely looks like a winner! (I've marked the pics with Treva's information... just in case the pics end up all over the internet!)

Sassy, the cow

Another fascinating fact about this unusual cow is that she recently has had a beautiful litter of ...puppies!

#-script for cow: *MOOOOOO!*

What a great bovine.....   

Reminiscing - Sacramento Anatolian playdays

We used to have a nice local group that got together with our (mostly young) Anatolians, back in the early 90's.

Here's a pic of part of the group at the first local group playday. Cindy (Growlsburg Anatolians) and Patty (Shenandoah Anatolians) were the main organizers back when. :)

First Playday
L-R (person & dog): Moises and Vahsi, Patty and Jolly, plus Jim and Annie, Ken and Eli, at our first playday. Gorgeous dogs and wonderful people!

Vahsi was a blue Anatolian. Gorgeous girl. Sadly she passed on this year. She had just had her 12th birthday. Her sire (not pictured) was of my breeding, belonging to Patty. More pics of Vahsi are here along with the subject of blue Anatolians.

Moises had also sent me some of Vahsi's puppy photos. This is one I thought had good clarity.

Vahsi the Beautiful
Isn't she gorgeous!

Here she is again as an older lady...
Vashi as an older lady
Gazing up at the camera gives the illusion that her almond eyes eyes are round.
But she did have correct and beautiful eyes. (Blue Anatolians may have bluish, then greenish to pale yellow eyes which may become a strong amber as they go through maturation phases. Immature Blue ASDs with blue eyes are not disqualified from the breed standard. The standard applies to mature dogs. It can take from 4 months to almost a year before the Amber color sets in.)

I'd love to hear from other owners of blue Anatolians!

Maternal Anatolian- Mom and puppy

Just have to share this wonderful picture of a mother Anatolian and some of her December 2005 puppies.

This is Ayri and she belongs to Nino Azzolin at Aslan Anatolians in Italy. He also has a page in English about this litter.
