Origin of the borzoi, by Inna Estrina


Introduction to the article:

In Vladimir, on the wall of The DmitrievSky Cathedral, in ancient times, a dog-bird was painted and an inscription was made. An inscription that will shed light on all our relationships with dogs dear to our hearts. According to Russian popular belief, the dog was given to a man to “bring it to the People”, i.e. to teach the unselfish feeling of love.

“Love is the main thing in the spiritual evolution of man. After such words, everything falls into place, t. K. each of us, evil and good, treacherous and simpleton, stupid and intelligent, needs the selfless love that our pets give us. Whether it is sighthounds or, some, other dogs that many centuries ago accompanied us through life, accompany and will accompany as long as life exists on our planet. “
