Happy Birthday, Ayla!

Ayla has been guarding for us for 11 years! Way to go, old girl. (check out the goat action in the background). Our goats are safer because of the Anatolian Shepherds. Ayla is our second Anatolian.

Some of you have seen the video, below, but if not, it’s worth a watch, when Ayla was a puppy with our first Anatolian.

Note: David and I look a bit older now because of course we are, but we have always half-way joked that Ayla took years off our lives because she was always such a night-time barker. She has amazing hearing, even mice in bushes 100 yards away would set her off. She has a number of raccoons under her belt and also survived a fight with a pit bull (it was her fault, she wandered onto its property one day when she decided to just go check out the neighborhood after nine years of staying within fences. Never did figure out what that was all about.
