This morning my mind was obviously somewhere else. I forgot Anatolians were in the yard and opened the back door. Carson shot out to go pee and I remembered. I tried to get him back in, but Sentry appeared and attacked Carson.

Carson is bigger and heavier but was no match for Sentry. Sentry was all over Carson. Carson tried to fight back, but his teeth closed on an empty spot where Sentry was and was now chomping on another piece of Carson.

Carson broke loose a few times and ran, trying to get away from Sentry. I had the back door open, calling Carson to run for the door. But he ran the wrong way.

Buford got all excited. His Hero and Mentor in all things important, like crunching turtles and armadillos, was on the attack! Buford barked and got in a few licks of his own.

Finally Carson broke free and ran for the door. I shut the door, Sentry immediately stopped growling and came to me, very calm and happy. Buford continued to bark and Sheba plainly thought they were both stupid.

I checked Carson over, only one small bite mark and not deep. I doctored it up and apologized to Carson over and over. I felt so bad.
Thank God he’s ok. He’ll probably be sore - give him extra snuggles for me.

Yet, Sentry comes in the house for relief from the heat and Carson is there too??? Not like he is a stranger.... just because Carson went out in the territory you had Sentry in... temporarily?

Glad that Carson is not hurt worse.
When Sentry came in the house daily last summer to escape the heat, he went to a large dog crate. He was happy to be inside and in the crate. Carson wouldn’t lay in the middle of the floor, but laid behind my recliner or in the hallway. Carson fears Sentry with good reason. I work at keeping them separate, this morning I just slipped up. I bet I don’t do that again!

Sentry and Carson were raised together. They are a year apart. Then we got Sheba and Sentry adored her. He saw Carson and Trip as rivals and appointed himself as Alpha Dog. He’s only 88 pounds, short in height, has that operated on hip, and a bad a$$ attitude that bristles out through every cell in his body.

He could make Trip back down with an aggressive stance and a hard look. He bullied Carson so bad that Carson hid under the porch and growled at us. One day I witnessed Sentry being a bully to Carson and finally realized what was wrong with Carson. I separated them from that point on.

Sentry is limping on his bad hip, I guess he hurt himself this morning. He let me touch and feel his leg, it is not swollen. He probably pulled a muscle.

It boils down to that “male Anatolian “ that @Ridgetop talks about. Sentry is everything she describes, except for size. At some point I will have to separate him and Buford. For now, Buford grovels at Sentry’s feet while Sentry has stiff posture and growls at him.

I got to drive my car home last night!!!!!
I’ve been leaving it at Peggy and Bennett’s and driving the mule to their house. Then get in the car and go. The county worked on our road yesterday, I was so excited.

I’ve been helping a friend tape and float sheetrock the past 2 days and again tomorrow. My neck and shoulders are sore. He’s amazed that I know how and super happy to have some help. His wife keeps telling me thank you for helping. He’s had 6 brain surgeries and wants to finish the house for his wife.
