Borzois at Francehill

A short film from the Francehill kennel. Comment from Christina Rafton ;Francehill Parti Piece (later “of Jonwin”) being handled by Robin Searle at the Old Vicarage, Acton, Sudbury Suffolk in 1975.

“Hunting with Borzois in Atkarsk”

atkar

         This story was written by Elena Badikova and published in the newspaper “Atkarsk News”     Olga Zilberman published it and Andrus Kozlov commented on the article:  “About Nikolai Mikhailovich Karakozovs dogs (1809-1866) and about the Borzoi Kosmach written in the book by L. Sabaneeva – so this is not a journalists fiction”.

                                                                                                          Aristocratic dogs

Many people remember the scene of a hound hunt from the film “Peculiarities of the nationality of the hunt” Under the sounds of a hunting horn, a pack of elegant greyhounds drives a wolf through the snow, a hunter in a red Hungarian coat knits a predator alive with his bare hands. Borzoi, these amazingly beautiful dogs of a traditionally Russian breed, were once bred in Atkarsky district.

The endless Atkar expanses with an abundance of beasts were the best suited for the favorite noble fun – hunting with greyhounds. She was considered a noble occupation that required courage, daring, passion – after all, they hunted with greyhounds without a gun, in a frantic race through the fields. Hares and foxes were poisoned with greyhounds, but the pinnacle of hunting skill was to take a wolf alive. Packs of wolves raged along the banks of the Bear, slaughtered flocks of sheep and attacked foals.

Each wealthy Atkar landowner kept dozens, if not hundreds, of Russian hound dogs on his estate. Elegant aristocratic dogs were the pride of the owners. Breeding and training greyhounds was considered a special art. They were served by a whole staff of hounds, and each had its own functions: the rider raised and trained the dogs, the scruffy led the pack on the hunt, the stirrup led the pack of the owner or guests of honor.

In the first half of the 19th century, the village of Lomovka, the estate of Nikolai Mikhailovich Karakozov, was the center for breeding greyhounds in Atkarsk district. Atkar police chief Karakozov (as the police chief was called in the 19th century) was a passionate hunter and devoted his life to breeding a special kind of hunting dogs that got his name. Greyhounds of Karakozov were famous far beyond the borders of the Saratov province – tall, fast, powerful, with thick hair. They were famous for their particular viciousness and the owner brought them out specially for hunting a wolf.

Hunters wrote legends about the famous Karakozov wolfhound named Kosmach. Usually greyhounds worked in a pack, but Kosmach did not hunt with other dogs, did not chase hares, he hunted hungry hardened wolves alone and took them one on one. The brave Kosmach went down in the history of Russian hunting, and the Russian writer Dmitriev sang his duel with the wolf in the hunting story “Pari”. So the glory of Kosmach outlived the fame of his master.

Along with the abolition of serfdom in 1861, the “golden age” of Russian hound hunting ended. Greyhound owners lost their serf dogs, and the number of dogs dropped dramatically. But true Atkar hunters kept the traditions of hunting with greyhounds for a long time. Even before the First World War, large canine hunts were organized on the estate of the leader of the nobility of the Atkar district, Nikolai Viktorovich von Harder.

The revolution put an end to the history of the Atkar greyhounds – aristocratic dogs disappeared simultaneously with their owners, the kennels were destroyed along with the manor estates. And the centuries-old tradition of Russian hound hunting has irrevocably sunk into the past.

The Nederlandse Barsoi Clubs 85th Anniversary at Castle Vorden

Karen van Antwerp has kindly supplied us with text and photos from The 85 Year Jubilee of the Nederlandse Barsoi Club.

 

On January 19, 2020, the Nederlandse Barsoi Club began the celebration of their 85th Anniversary at Castle Vorden during the annual New Year reception and dog walk.  

Karen

 

 

Castle Vorden and its owners welcomed club members into the castle and their Borzoi to celebrate this special event. Several members dressed up in historic costumes to honor the aristocratic themed festivities. We had the opportunity to have coffee and a snack with our three Borzoi in the magnificent Red reception room, admiring the guests, their dogs and the beautiful artwork and antiques.

Vorden Castle dates back to 1315. The moment we walked up the stairs into the castle we could feel the 800 years of history with the beautiful antique furniture, paintings, sculptures, armor and other antiquities dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries. In the dining room were several paintings that are reminiscent of the hunting castle Pershino of Grand Duke Nicolai Nicolaivitch of years past.

Ellen

The schedule for the celebration began around 11:00 – 11: 30 with a warm welcome and speech by Inge Fakkert, the club´s Chairman.  Then we took a few memorable photos of the Borzoi on the front steps of the Castle, with several members in historic costumes.

The hour-long dog walk through the trails on the castle grounds was breathtaking as you watched 50 Borzoi and their owners progressing through trails. It was very picturesque.

After the dog walk, there was a lovely lunch which began with a toast for the 85th anniversary year of the club.

During the delicious meal, we continued the celebration over conversations on our Borzoi.  Old friends shared stories and several new friendships were made. The Borzoi present enjoyed the day´s activities as much as the owners and everyone felt welcome and relaxed.

It was a `moment in time`in my own life to celebrate this lovely Borzoi breed with the club members in such a grand, elegant location of Castle Vorden. I am thankful to the Club and the committee for organizing such a memorable day.  I have had Borzoi over 25 years and our dogs have lived in 3 different countries. We are glad to be a part of this lovely club and to help celebrate its anniversary celebration.

As the late afternoon sun began to shine, we left lovely Kasteel Vorden. My husband and our Borzoi were so happy to have such a special day together meeting up with our Borzoi friends old and new.

Canadian database

Canadian database first version.

Where dogs names were gained from published show results, the year refers to the first date the dog was shown.  It is not a year of birth.  For puppies, a guess was made for a birth date in the year before or sometimes in the year the dog was shown.  In this database it was helpful to add the town or state for unknown dogs to give them a location in the vast country of Canada.  Generally the areas are east coast around Toronto, Ottawa etc then the major area in the middle of the country with the states of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.  Several breeders in the early years lived here and used their dogs as wolf hunters but showed them as well.  Many of these dogs survive behind modern lines.  The isolated west coast on the other side of the Rocky Mountains has Vancouver and British Columbia with few dogs.  In the early days there were 3 separate kennel clubs which registered dogs in Canada.  For about 5 years the west coast combined with California to create the Pacific Coast group. I do not have any registrations for dogs here but some dogs were imported and litters were bred in Vancouver.  In the Mid West states of Alberta etc, the Dominion Kennel Club was active for several years registering dogs.  These are shown in the database with DKC numbers.  These registrations were published in a kennel magazine in opposition to the Canadian Kennel Club but I don’t have many issues of this magazine so dogs for DKC are mostly missing.  Some dogs were registered with more than one club.  From 1915, all Canadian registrations were done by the Department of Livestock Records until 1984.  Annual studbooks were printed and these are in the 3 libraries in America as well as the CKC.  It is these stud books which need someone to go in and copy the relevant pages.  Most Canadian dogs in this period are missing from the database with some exceptions as a lot of breeding stock went to America.  All the AKC numbers on Canadian bred dogs are for those sent to America and re-registered with AKC in their studbooks.  Some AKC numbers are for American dogs that were sold to Canada and have (Imp USA) at the end of their names.  As many American dogs were shown in Canada to get an extra title but didn’t live there, sometimes it is difficult to tell whether they were just visiting or imported.  These dogs just have (USA) on their names until further information is obtained.

 

The historical database is interesting for the early years but it also shows the many unknown dogs at the end.  Hopefully one day a lot of this missing information will be discovered.
