I think I have seldom met a dog who so well suited her name. Pearl is just that - a pearl, with her almost translucent colour, the soft texture of her silky hair, her classic looks, her class and grace without being ostentatious. She is one gem of a dog.
Pearl is one of the Wednesday walking group. A Borzoi, she is a sighthound - gracefully athletic, yet calm and quiet and gentle. Originally bred in Russia, the name borzoi comes from borzaya which means "quick dog".
Pearl is perhaps one of the most photogenic dogs I have met , second only to Oliver. It's almost impossible to take a bad photo of her.
What I can't figure out is how a dog with such fine white fur stays soooo clean after a day on the estuary!
