There are many reason why I believe I should have another borzoi but perhaps none more compelling than when I see friends I have not seen in several months, or perhaps do not read the Blyss Blog, and they ask how my dogs are. When I tell them the Blyss Borzoi are all gone now, they express so much shock and sorrow and then ask me if I am getting another borzoi. Of course I am, I tell them, and my goal is to have one by the end of this year. It is then that I introduce “Jelly”, of the Bibikov Kennel in Cross River, NY, a four year old finished champion. Then, I see their faces light up with happiness for me, and I smile back and even laugh a bit. That is how I know I have made the right decision.
One day you awaken and lean into a beam of light that guides your steps – day –
You lean toward it harder in another measure – night –
To find your dreams and destiny
Though others strive to steal your treasure.
I live by resilience and faith to compensate
for that which others have robbed me with some success – betrayal
For others, oh them, they will be so envious.
