Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov has designated the last Sunday in April as a national holiday to honor the Alabai, a local dog breed.

The Alabai is a Central Asian shepherd dog loved by the leader, who has published a book and written a song about the breed, The Columbian reports.
