We met Kona walking with her friends Bailey and Sarah. I have never met, or seen, an Akbash before. Kona was great. Yesterday when I originally posted this I spelled the breed name wrong, I looked up Kabash, which is an Anatolian Shepherd Dog. Kona is not an Anatolian Shepherd. I had it all wrong. Jeez. The name Akbash comes form the Turkish word "akbas" meaning "white head." The Akbash comes from western Turkey and was developed over 3000 years ago. Kona is three years old. I apologize to Kona and Sarah for getting the name wrong. Dyslexia rears it's ugly head.
