The WebRing is a circular journey through member websites
having a common theme. The idea is that once you are at one site in the webring, you can
click on a "Next" or "Previous" link in the same ring to go to
adjacent sites in the ring and--if you do it long enough--end up where you started.
Basically this is a circular journey to all the websites within a particular ring theme.
In this case, the theme is dedicated to the Anatolian Shepherd
Dog - the Turkish breed of Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) known world-wide as the Anatolian.
What is the Anatolian Shepherd?
This breed, originating in ancient regions of Anatolia in
Turkey, appears in a variety of types, which like all historic working breeds, has not
been stagnant over time. Some of these varieties have been designated as separate breeds
over the last quarter of this century. In many countries, there are a variety of names for
different specific phenotypes of the breed and it is with this understanding, that the Anatolian Webring bases
its breed definition.
Information about WebRings.
WebRing is a free service allows web sites with similar
interest to form "rings" of sites, allowing netizens a fast and efficient way to
find content and a great way for sites to build traffic and gain exposure for member web
sites. Note: Occasionally the webring server is a bit
dysfunctaional or especially slow, be patient and try again at a later time to do whatever
you were trying to do. Unfortunately, this downtime also applies to those that are
attempting webring management!
To help unify our various groups and to help educate
those interested in these dogs, so that informed decisions can be made by those seeking to
This WebRing hopes to inform and entertain those who already have one or more of these
magnificent dogs AND those "just looking" and surfing the web will get
an opportunity to see some of these dogs via use of this forum.
Helpful information includes that which helps the webring surfer to understand that these
primitive guardian dogs have breed character of a type that requires a level of
responsibility that not all are prepared to assume.

Submit your site to the Anatolian Shepherd Dog WebRing Queue, via the JOIN button of
the Anatolian Webring.There are two types of fragments you can use in the

very specific about the address of your website so if there are minor changes, the entire
code needs to be changed.

automatic. Your site will first go into a group queue. This gives you time to
complete the coding and do your self-critique. The WebRingmaster does NOT code your pages for you, so if after about 30
days of submitting your request to the Queue to join the ring, and if your page content is
not yet ready, your request is automatically removed from the Queue. You can resubmit your request for
addition, if you just needed more time to 'get it right..
After Ringmaster gets your email stating that your site is ready for critique; if
the HTML fragment is up; if the Anatolian WebRing logo is on your page, and your site has
appropriate content--the Ringmaster will add your site to the WebRing. The ring is not
checked on a daily basis, and occasionally one or more functions of the WebRing service
may have server problems, so there may be some waiting involved. Patience helps!

The Anatolian Shepherd Dog WebRing Logo
The AnatolianRing is represented by the logo of the fawn dog. If this code is not on
your page, your ringcode is definitely broken.
This is the Larger Logo used by the older sites and those that want the two-dog
Logo. And apparently, this is the most stable version of the webring code -- especially if
you make frequent changes to your site.
BELOW: this is the JAVA ring code that is automatically generated from the
location of your website and other parameters. Therefore, the java code version is easily
broken when you make changes to your website and unfortunately, it can also give false
positives if other ring code on your page uses similar off-site code. The two-dog version
above is more stable and much easier to find on a busy page when ring surfing.
