Judaism as a Group Evolutionary Strategy:
Yoruks and Kangals first published in Choban Chatter This map shows the relative elevations, but not the hills. You can see the altitude by following the colour from Ankara to Sivas or Kayseri, however the land between those two-three cities is rather flat.
Sheepdogs in Turkey All the dogs in Turkey are related to each other; there are not sharp distinctions. Nevertheless, it is impossible not to see the variations or strains. These dogs are ecotype dogs and their general structure is shaped by geographical conditions and by the culture of the people who bred them.
What I mean by ecotype is an existing species created by natural selection and adapted to a particular habitat. Since these are not wolves, there is a cultural selection as well. There are two terms that I am going to use. Kirik is a short coat, but it is not like a pit bull short hair. It literally means,"broken", which can be interpreted as "something does not grow enough".
Kaba is for long coat, but it does not necessarily mean that all kaba dogs have long coats. It means "wooly" or "a substance that is light yet it has volume". All the kaba dogs have thick, bushy tails, An analysis of different culture some kaba dogs have longer hair on their body coat as well.

Toward an Operational Definition of Cross-Cultural Competence from Interview Data (), by Ross, at the Institute of Simulation and Training, University of Central Florida, for the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), Spring Anatolian Perspectives by Guvener Isik Comparative Analysis of Two Different Strains of Anatolian Shepherd Dogs: Yoruks and Kangals (first published in Choban Chatter). Synovial fluid (joint fluid) is a liquid that acts as a lubricant for the major joints, such as the knees, shoulders, hips, hands, and feet. Laboratory tests on synovial fluid help diagnose the cause of joint inflammation, pain, swelling, and fluid build-up.
When one touches a kaba puppy and a kirik puppy, he can feel the difference. I have some photos which may underline some of the differences. However, I do not have any taxonomic values about these dogs.
Most of the time I saw these dogs in the villages and not with the intention of taking photos. I started taking photos regularly since Even so, it is hard to see the dogs any time one wants to see them, because they are not in the village and one has to find the flock in order to see the dogs.
The flocks come down to the villages with the sunset. The yoruk dogs that I have seen when I was 8 to15 years old are not present in the same locations any more. Nevertheless, some of the photos may do. I did not take the photos in order to compare them later, but to record them in the form of raw data to be interpreted later if necessary.
These are all nonsense commercial moves. How about the dog owners in Kayseri and Konya? They can breed their dogs as usual, but can they call them kangal? One has to get permits in order to breed kangal outside Sivas.
The rights of doing research or publishing papers, or representing kangals, all belong to the Sivas Kangal Shepherd Dog club. The kangal standards have changed so many times in the last 20 years.
That is why one is forced to look into this issue and that is why it is too tiresome and boring. It is like only the Greeks can produce Feta. I can produce it, but I cannot call it Feta.
If kangal is bred in Ankara and sold to Istanbul and then this dog is exported to the USA, what does it become? There are some French cheeses which have been traditionally made only in a few villages and they have the rights to use the name, but neither is "kangal" a traditional name nor is the breeding limited to Sivas.
I guess I have to talk about kangal. There is a saying in Turkish, "One mad man throws a stone into a well, hundred wise men try to take it out". I do not know whether there is this kind of "right to patent" for the German Shepherd Dog in Germany!
Basic Strains The first type of dogs in the photos below, Yoruks have relatively square bodies with pointed muzzles. The second type dogs, Kangals have rectangle bodies with square muzzles and rounder skulls.The Pop Culture ESL Teacher. Articles. China accuses US of trade bullying as new tariffs imposed – BBC News.
