    I have a videos I do once in a while, but thought I would introduce my gang.
    First up is Femka- She is 8 years old, a rescue and we have had her for 3 years. She has some health issues, but doing well. Queen of the castle so to speak, and loves the pampered life.
    In most dog breeds, this color would be called a " tri-color". In Borzois its called a "self black with tan and white" ( or self black with tan as white is a given in borzois.)

    and her video I made ( sorry its not very good- I was just learning to do music videos.. lol.

    Here is Zubin. He is a "tri color" meaning white, with black and his case silver on his skirt. He is 3 years old, a show dog but also a therapy dog and works with kids with cancer at two hospitals.

    Here is a silly music video of him. There is another " tri " in the video ( his sister Galina) and more on that later. Zubin is the taller one with the straight thin blaze on his nose.

    My avatar is Logan. He is almost 2 years old and a new arrival to our home. Just starting his show career, and filled a void left in the passing of my older male Hottie.

    I started working with him for his therapy dog test.
    The video attached to my signature is dedication to Hottie. He passed away in March.

    Logan has more color on his body than Hottie did but yea- its amazing how similar. When I went to get him his pictures it was not as obvious how much he looked like hottie. When I first saw Logan on my arrival, I broke into tears. Its the same white heart on the head etc. Alot of the white with red has similar markings on the head- including the eye liner. However- Logans body is like a combination of ( takes a deep breath)- red, silver, black, tan, and auburn. He also has more black on his head as well.
    However- Logan is his " own man" for sure. There is still some puppy in him, but its amazing to see how he moves. He is more mature in body than Zubin as Zubin is a late mature type and Logan is not.

    I'm sorry about Hottie. I remember that handsome man.

    Beautiful Borzois, though!
