  2. A great post! We lived in Tajikistan 95-96 during the civil war and still have friends in Dushanbe. I remember the sheep dogs…whose ears, tail and lips are slashed off as puppies the better to fight wolves with….

    Fred, that’s gruesome. I was under the impression that the carnage was only a result of infighting. There were definitely hunks of fir and skin missing from other parts of their head as well…Perhaps from wolf encounters…? Maybe wild camping wasn’t such a good idea!
