Today is another day without Paris, without any of the Blyss borzoi for that matter! However, it is a day full with new problems, since so often isn’t that what a new day brings?
My final and beloved cat, “Sasha”, has died. And ironically, so like the borzoi before her, today she followed them into the animal world of death, a mere three days after Paris, and a year after Mikhailya lead that parade.
I cannot help but wonder, with so much death around me, why am I here? What is my purpose without them? I see the collapse of my life.
Even my LT has found me lacking. A long and lonely day spreads out before me where once love lied making me dizzy with pleasure….. no more …. only the lonely day apart.
I need to think now. If only there was a borzoi to brush or to walk, or a neighbor to talk to along the way. Now there is no reason to do anything at all. Why would anyone want to talk to me? Surely not for me alone. Hopefully I will feel better later. Tomorrow is another day and I am looking forward to entertaining new friends who have a retired Majenkir bitch named “Electra”.

However, there is wonderful news to follow that I expect will lift my malaise considerably. More about this in the days and weeks ahead. For now, I know that the death of Paris and no less, my final cat, Sasha, signifies the end of a great era in my life with the original borzoi as well as the cats, and my beautiful Labrador Retriever, Ebony, for Blyss Kennels. I will be deep in thought and giving the future much consideration in the weeks and months ahead. What shall I do? Will there be an “Encore!”? “A Blyss Kennels Encore Blog?” Will a Great-Grand-Daughter of my much loved Champion Dog “Mikhailya”, a puppy who is also a Grandaughter of her son, the great Champion Dog, International Champion Dog in Japan, Magnus, have a home at Blyss? Today, the future is unknown. An offer has been made and I am dizzy with bliss. And there is one thing I know, I have much to think about.
