I'll never forget the first time I saw a Borzoi - time and everything around me stood still while I watched this magical creature move like something from a dream. It was like when King Haggard from The Last Unicorn said: '..nothing makes me happy but their shining and their grace. They fill me with great joy. The first time I felt it, I thought I was going to die.'
Except I don't want to drive all the Borzoi into the sea and keep them for myself. But I still feel the same way about them, and all sighthounds, actually. I feel it every day as I watch my greyhound, wondering how anything this beautiful can actually exist.
