Running over a borzoi with my Volkswagen would not have prepared me for helping a veterinarian treat a dog who ran into traffic.
So next morning I am in wet Carmarthen High Street, awaiting sight of a black borzoi nose held low.
Every breed of dog, from dachshund to Dalmatian, from boxer to borzoi, from poodle to Pekinese, from Great Dane to chihuahua, has been carved, chiselled, kneaded, moulded, not literally as flesh and bone but in its gene pool.
Indeed, they are unusual in that the elongation of the snout begins before they are born, which probably makes borzoi puppies less proficient suckers than other breeds.
I knew a pursun who obedience traind teh borzoi an it is very hard, yes.
I hadda borzoi wunce, an dis was utterly tru bout him.
Maybe Whiskey, the Irish Wolfhound, should meet your borzoi!
Though I wish it could have been a borzoi my breed.
"It is the gold girl who is the borzoi, the only borzoi, in the garden."
The borzoi as I have tried to understand it, as I have striven to breed it, is completely missplaced here.
