Ooh, very interesting indeed, thanks for explaining! I like names that aren't very common - it makes them more interesting.

Lovely pup! And so much poise already. She must come from working lines with that attitude she's showing.

So, when it's time to trim her coat, will you be using Occam's Razor?

Congrats to your mom & Occam for finding each other! Occam is so cute!!!!

Max says he wants to meet his new sister; he doesn't have many Anatolians to play with on this board.
