Love the picture!

Italian friends!
Nino's son in Italy with a gorgeous Anatolian female pup, Hasir. Doesn't she have a bit of mischief in those eyes? ;)
I couldn't resist posting this! To see more of Nino's stuff, visit his blog!

Alas, this is happening way too much. I have truly been totally snowed, abducted by life and all that booooring yadda yadda... I'm trying to get back to my backlog of postings so I'll make a few tonight or this morning or whenever the *$&#^ server lets these upload. (sigh)

Italian Anatolian Blog

Umberto, Nino's son, with some rascally puppies (in Italy).

Nino (in Italy) has started blogging! :)
I've added him to the Anatolian blogroll -- testing to see if it will "roll" if I use a translation link (probably won't but it might be handy for me anyway).
His blog has some pics and comments about his Anatolians. It is in Italian but machine translations from Italian are not nearly as bad as some. (Turkish machine translations are horrid!). ;)
See his blog here and use your favorite Italian to English translator. Here's one I use.

His current blog comment mentions Hakim (above) who is going to South Africa to help his new owner in the effort to protect flocks from predators and thereby assist in wildlife conservation. (here... for the translated Italian link)

Nino has the above handsome Anatolian, named Kartal, who was born on a goat farm in Texas. Kartal rated perfect hips normal elbows at maturity and will be a very important part of the future Anatolians in Europe and looks like Africa too. Kartal represents an infusion of new bloodlines in Europe. Kartal's registered name is Old Glory Kartal. :)

This is Ayri, the mother full sister of the mother of the litter (Frida). She is a first generation homebred of Nino's foundation stock.

Here is Hakan, a Kartal x Ayri son. Isn't he cute!

More pups! I love this expression! The rough coat is awesome!

And here's Umberto with one of the little guys.

Here is Nino's website.

Spaghetti Western

There's a little bit of Texas in Italy. :)

Old Glory Kartal is a young male from Texas. Nino is raising Kartal with hopes of introducing fresh working bloodlines into the future of European Anatolians.
Old Glory Kartal
...isn't he handsome? :)

The future looks good!

Anatolian Puppies in Italy

Nino Azzolin of Italy has some beautiful puppies.

The mother is Ayri, a daughter of World Show Winner Cappadocia Faikh (bred by Maureen Charnstrom). The sire is Racham, a male bred out of Sophie Licari's Kennel in France. Nino is a Code of Ethics breeder and has hip certified all his breeding stock. He also encourages hip checks on the puppies that he has placed, even when the owners have no plans to breed. What better way is there to learn more about one's bloodlines? Currently, he is the only Anatolian breeder in Italy.

He has some puppies available right now. Some photos he recently sent to me.

You should visit his site at the link above and note the phone numbers, and give him a ring! (this might be better since his computer misbehaves sometimes and he may not be able to access email all the time).

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.
