A Dog's Life Pets

New Year Puppies

DSCF2393 These Borzoi puppies were born early on Jan 3.  I’ve not been a parent, but I sure understand how parents say, when you hold the new born, the worries and cares of the world melt away, and all that is important at the moment is that new born.

 

These puppies have the pedigree to be great show and performance dogs.  I hope they chase the plastic rabbit around the coursing field, amaze in the agility ring, and behave in the obedience classes, as well as be the beauties they are in the conformation shows.   Even with all my hopes and dreams for these youngsters, first and foremost, I hope they live happy lives.  In choosing to breed the dogs I did, the first priority was temperament.  I want my dogs to just want to love and be loved by the world.  Even at just a few days old, these puppies have what I want, very sweet personalities.

I grew up in Washougal. Our family used to have cows, and so we always had the usual farm animals; cows, chickens, cats, dogs. When I was 11, some one dumped a young, silver point German shepherd near our farm. Unlike almost all dumped dogs, this one was lucky and we took him in. He turned out to be a pretty good farm dog. We called him Charley. My sister decided to enter Charley in 4-H obedience classes, and her little sister (me) always tagged along. One day, while my sister was working with Charley, I went back to the car. Someone had come to visit the obedience instructor, and in the back of the visitors’ car were two amazing, tall, thin, long haired elegant, majestic looking dogs. I was instantly smitten. I did see the person who owned the dogs, and I never learned who it was; but, I promised myself that some day I would have a dog like that. It took me 10 years to learn I’d fallen in love with a Borzoi aka Russian wolfhound. It was another 10 years for my first Borzoi to enter my life. Just how he came to live with me is another wonderful story. He was my love, he was an amazing teacher. He taught me a lot about dogs and life. I’m so glad he was part of my life. Since a lot of people don’t know much about Borzoi, I took it upon myself to learn as much as I could about the breed as I could. It’s only been 15 years now, so I’m still learning, and love to talk dog with anyone willing to listen.
