We always breed only cats at home. In some times we even had three cats and each of them had her favouritre chair, so the other persons of the family couldn´t sit down anywhere. When I was child, I wished for a dog, but my parents told me no everytime, so I soon stopped the vain requests.
Then I almost wasn´t at home for five years, because I spent the most of time at the college and also the weekends and holidays I spent away from home. When I returned back from school, my parents moved and I began to live in our family house with my boyfriend. Because my boyfriend sometimes goes drinking with his friends to parties and festivals, I stay at home alone. Of course I was afraid and so we began to think about purchasing a dog. We both agreed that we want a large dog. Neither of us doesn´t like those dogs who scream just like a hysterical woman. You can´t almost see them but you can hear them a few miles far.
For the first time we chose between labrador and golden retriever. But I wanted a dog who will guard me and I will not afraid when I´m alone at home. But labrador or retriever aren´t „protectors“, I think they are rather „saluters“. So we began to search again for another more suitable breed. The choice was narrowed down when my doctor told me I´m allergic – each time during the year. We chose the breed which could stay all the year out of home. We still couldn´t find the right dog for us when I read in magazine „Koktejl“ the article about shepherd dogs. We were really excited and we began to look for more informations on the internet.
We found out the breedind station of Anatolian Shepherd Dog called Browny san mar a we were delighted with their dogs who we saw on their web. They had perfect athletic figure – in contrast to other shepherd dogs they don´t seem to be so cumbrous, they have very nice colour of the coat and what was very important for us – ideal temperament – it was love at first sight.
Immediately we reserved a puppy. Unfortunately bitch didn´t give birth to puppies, because she wasn´t in pup. But we had a luck, we got a contact for Mr. Václavík. We contacted him immediately and we find out he has last puppy bitch free.
There was a little complication, because we had to take her a six weeks earlier than we calculated. But finally we made it successfully (although we had to cancel our holiday) and brought our puppy home. Officially she is called Alberta Hammer von Tahlspere, but in regard of her Turkish origin, we renamed her for Inci. In Turkey it means Pearl.
We are really crazy for her, she is our overgrowed baby :-)
Because we were afraid that she will be sleep at night in “arctic winter” we built her “small” kennel with frost protection and with atria. We decided to add a few inches on each side of the kennel to make more space for her and suddenly we found out that we built a small garden house … Because she is really curios and in the kennel she has no survey about the events at the garden, finally she sleeps at the porch.
How I wrote before formerly we wanted dog who can stay out all the year, but man thinks …. Dog changes. When we are in the house, most of time she is there with us, because of house cold in summer and freezing in winter . But she mainly stays at home because of having her sheep under supervision.
