The big pointer in the picture is a girl called Zeyno. Zeyno is short for Zeynep, a turkish girls name that somehow gets asociated with wholesome, innocent village girls.
The name couldn't be more appropiate in this sense. Zeyno is 80 pounds of goodness. The small dogs use her as a matrass in winter, and despite her size, she waits patiently for all the others to feed before she takes a turn.
A friend of us found her, maybe six weeks old, trembling in terror on a night when a small earthquake ocurred here. She was tiny, I brought her home with her belly snuggly fitting the palm of my hand. She grew like overnight, we don't even have a picture of her puppy time, it happened so fast!
Big innocent Zeyno, the best natured friend, the true image of tenderness.
