Emine- the Livestock Guard Dog

Emine is a Turkish Kangal. The Kangal is the "Royal Dog of Turkey". These dogs are on coins, and there are statues in tribute to these wonderful guard dogs. On our farm, Emine (pronounced Em*in*a, the Turkish word meaning "trustworthy") is the Royal Guard Dog of Ewe Win. Here she is pictured on her "throne" as she surveys her Kingdom.

Or talking to her "subjects" who are no doubt complaining that all they would like to do is "chase the sheep for a few minutes, please, please, can we, huh, huh?" No- is the final answer. Sheep herding is a civilized and important activity not undertaken by unruly puppies!

That is some dog! How is she with the Shelties?

She is great with the shelties. Actually, she has been great with all of the dogs she has met, but she barks and has a fit when she hears coyotes howl.
