Çapar of Çardak
02-15-06 to 10-31-16
This treasure of a sweet boy had increasing difficulty getting around and when he began to indicate signs of suffering and coming death, we quickly had the vet out to euthanize him in his favorite spot near the shop where he could watch our house and driveway and guard the shop door. To date, this was our most difficult loss because he was such a miraculous discovery and import achievement, as well as being such a huge loving bear! He lives on through stored frozen semen, as well as many offspring, including Shepherds Rest Birnur and Shepherds Rest Topcu Subayi "Gunner."

Durkaya's Kara Panter (brindle import)
3-16-11 to 2-26-19
Cause of Death: Panter, passed away 02/26/2019, the day of her spay. She woke after successful surgery then went to sleep and did not wake again. She never made it home after that spay. She was healthy at the time of spay. It was one of those sedation situations that can be deadly to Anatolians sometimes. So sad. DOB was 03-16-2011, so this beloved Turkish import was a few weeks shy of 8 years old.

Euthanized when back end quickly became crippled and then paralyzed such that he could no longer move his rear end to walk. We miss him terribly! He produced many breeding quality puppies and his offspring now carry his line into the future.
