I lost my last Borzoi a year and one half ago and vowed I'd never have my heart broken again. While in the hospital the therapy dog came by, a Standard Poodle, and the handler said she sometimes will get on the bed of a patient if she feels a special bond. I tapped the bed and up Chloe came, lying next to me for the next hour so I could pat and love on her. It was then I realized, even if I am 70, I can't be "dogless" so my new 3 year old Borzoi Merlyn will be on his way from Atlanta to Maine this week or next. I'm beyond excited because he's beautiful and beyond the crazy puppy stage.
