Bonus! Day 33 - Borzoi

Day 33 - Borzoi

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.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your 30 days of Sight hounds! Being the proud owner of a greyhound I looked forward everyday to seeing your next model! I would love to have you paint my beautiful girl Lora one day.

Ladies, thank you so much! I'm glad so many people have been enjoying this series as much as I have.
Joanne, any time you're ready, let me know!
