The borzoi, also called the Russian wolfhound, is a breed of domestic dogs. It is descended from dogs brought to Russia from central Asian countries. It is similar in shape to a greyhound, and is also a member of the sighthound family. The system by which Russians over the ages named their sighthounds was a series of descriptive terms, not actual names. "Borzói" is the masculine singular form of an archaic Russian adjective that means "fast". "Borzáya sobáka" is the basic term used by Russians, though "sobáka" is usually dropped. The name "Psovaya" derived from the word Psovina, which means "wavy, silky coat", just as "Hortaya" means shorthaired. In Russia today the breed we know as the borzoi is officially known as "Russkaya Psovaya Borzaya". Other Russian sighthound breeds are "Stepnaya Borzaya", called "Stepnoi"; and "Krimskaya Borzaya", called "Krimskoi". The plural "borzois" may be found in dictionaries; however, the Borzoi Club of America maintains that "borzoi" is the preferred form for both singular and plural forms. LESS
Note: I did NOT film this because I found it amusing in any way, I filmed it because I wanted to show people what it can look like when a poor dog is stressing out because of fireworks. Also, I am so "neutral" with Tetris here because if you pity a dog in a scary situation, it may hurt them even more since that validates that there really is something to be afraid of etcetera. So... We were out on a walk in the late afternoon, and since people here are f*cking retards they light fireworks and crackers randomly so you can't prepare for it or avoid it... I hate it! On new years eve, I will be on the countryside with Tetris and give her some medication so she don't have to be so stressed. As you may now, there are dogs (and other animals) that DIES because they are so scared of the noices from the fireworks. In my opinion, they should be forbidden. Except from hurting animals, they are not good for the environment and can cause fires and hurt people aswell. When Tetris was 1, 2 and 3 years old, she wasn't bothered with fireworks, but last year she did. She is not scared of other loud noices. I feel so bad for her... Last new years eve was a mess. She was so stressed that she was hiding in my bed, shaking, couldn't relax and peed herself.
