The Anatolian Shepherd Dog originated in Turkey. There are many variations in color and white is one of them. The white Anatolian is also referred to as an Akbash and the discussion and disagreement as to same or different breed continues in the US as well as Turkey. As with the Anatolian, the coat of the Akbash can be either rough (long) or smooth (short or medium).
Tattie is from an all white litter. Both her parents are white, however both parents come from mixed color backgrounds.

Tattie is a bit intimidated, meeting strange people and Grandma Dallas checking her out!
At 8 weeks, Tattie was over 20 lbs. Bear was just 18 lbs at 8 weeks! Then, three short weeks later, Tattie weighed in at 32 lbs 2 oz!
Meeting Brinks and Minnos was a little daunting, to say the least, but when we tried to crate Tattie for that first encounter, she literally threw a temper tantrum to come out and go nose to nose! I knew the girls would be gentle - at least in the house!
It was a long day starting with a three and a half hour drive and then meeting her new big sisters. Time for a well deserved rest with "full" protection! Minnos, at 23 months immediately adopted Tattie and is just exceptional with her. Brinks has an even softer relationship, but let's Minnos do the initial mothering. She only steps in when needed!
I know that the white dogs are different, but I guess I shouldn't have put that Sihirli in her name!
Magical - HA! Should have been magician!
At eleven weeks, she's beginning to show her true nature! I went out to sweep the front porch.
I put the dustpan down and began to sweep (hung the trash bag from a plant hook to keep Tattie out of it). All was going well for about half the porch. Tattie decided that the dust pan - which is over-sized, was just right for her. I sort of ignored her, thinking that she couldn't really go far. Well, she picked it up like it was a popsicle stick and pranced to the edge of the porch and dropped it over the edge and then jumped down. I turned back to my sweeping, picking up a rug, shook it out and as I dropped it, Tattie pounced on the rug. Okay, no problem - it's her rug. At this point, I had a pile to sweep up and I went to get the dustpan (it is black, heavy duty something or other - better than plastic - expensive, industrial type. No dustpan! I went around and looked all through the bushes and then spread out throughout the yard. Now, she has yard space that's about 1/4 of an acre or maybe a bit more. Anyway, I searched for a good 15 minutes - of course, with Tattie trying her best to pull my sweat pants off. No dustpan! I think she mumbled something like abracadabra and poof! It disappeared! I've since been back all over the yard, in and out of the bushes - met several large spiders up close and personal and still - no dustpan! Guess I'll have to wait till she decides to play with it again - whenever that might be!
Several hours later, the mailman delivered the mail and I went out to get the mail. While out, I looked for the dustpan again!
When I returned from the mail box, I looked and SAW THE DUSTPAN in the
very spot where I had stepped off the porch! Now I KNOW this little
girl is a magician! She came with me to the mail box! She had to
move that dustpan where I could find it telepathically!
November 17, 2007 - Tattie says: "Come on Bear, let's RUN!"
"Hey, what are doing with your feet? What's gaiting?"
"Hey WAIT - too FAST! I'm going to FLY!"
Tattie and Brinks have become great friends! Their relationship is different from that of Minnos and Tattie.
Tatlilik turned four months old on December 29, 2007 and weighed in at 63 pounds. She sits on command, having taught herself from watching the other dogs!
Still very much a puppy, when Tattie's tired, she wants comfort and her own pillow!
Outside play is restricted to time with Bear. He's so tolerant and patient with the pups, but he does have a line!
Discipline from Bear is accepted without an argument, but Tattie does have to push him pretty far before he reacts!
