the writer has heard hundreds of times at shows : " Those dogs are so delicate." This is not the case. Once over distemper troubles-and the breed certainly does suffer badly if it contracts the disease-the Borzoi is as hardy as most breeds, if not hardier. Given a good dry kennel and plenty of straw, no weather is too cold for them. Damp, of course, must be avoided, but this applies equally to other breeds.
The adult hound, like the puppy, should never be kept on chain ; a kennel with a railed-in run should be provided, or a loose box makes a capital place for those kept out of doors, otherwise no different treatment is required from that of other large breeds.
