In Gatchina, not far from Petersburg, we saw the Tsar's dog quarters. The kennels make a very luxurious impression. Even the pitches, surrounded by elegant fences, show a certain sober tone, as it has been understood that horticultural art around the long areas can be pleasantly interrupted by delightful groupings, everything is tastefully landscaped in the most attractive surroundings --- a really dazzling frame for the Imperial hunt. For he who wants to create an elegant kennel, here is the classic role model./ Quote from Dr Artur Wegeners article "Studies By A Borzoifriend 1910"
