How Firebird Borzoi Got its Name

I started out years ago with the "kennel" name "Starkwolf." I used to be married to a man named Stark, so it seemed appropriate. After my divorce, I no longer wanted that name for my dogs. Since I had became familiar with the Russian myth of the Firebird, I became interested in using that name for my dogs. I also had heard of the American Indian story of the Firebird, how it represented beauty, endurance, and strength, and I thought, "Wow, a Borzoi does not need anything more than those three things." I really liked it - and besides, my wonderful little Morgana was named Firebird, so I decided to use it. Firebird also reminds me of the mythical Phoenix - who rises from the ashes to glory. I have had to start all over with different dogs, so I, too, am rising from the ashes to start anew.
