|It was just so awesome....I've been giddy since last night!! I've met and known so many dogs and many of what are considered "rare breeds" but never, ever before an Anatolian. What a THRILL!!!
The way I met her was funny! I've been working for friends of mine that own a pizza shop and lately, I've been doing delivering. So I went to the house to deliver food. Saw the dog at first through a leaded glass window in the front door - thought "could it be....?" And the guy answered the door and at the same time said, do you like dogs? And when I nodded he let her out to greet me. Gushing ensued!!
The owner was proud and very happy to talk all about her. Said she's great with other dogs and animals, wonderful with kids. He said she seems to have great instincts about who is an intruder and who's a friendly visitor. She likes riding in the car. He said he's had many dogs all his life and she is "the best animal [he's] ever owned."
The owners are a middle-aged (50's or so?) couple living in a suburban neighborhood. Not necessarily where I'd have thought I'd meet an Anatolian but there she was!!
And YES!!! I love the lean so much! It's funny when we were talking about the lean I mentioned other breeds that seem to do it a lot, Great Danes were at the top of my list (I was thinking also of greyhounds and dobes)(what other breeds lean a lot? hmmm). The Anatolian owner was joking he should have named his dog "Eileen."
