So I had my first encounter with a Borzoi today on the subway. It took me a while to figure out this creature was even a dog, because it looked so little like any other breed. The twig physique, the long spine and stretched out nose made it look like a snake on stilts wearing a fur coat.

Why even breed something like this?
>>
>thinks borzoi exist

Anon... I... umm....
>>
They're a hundreds of years old breeding standard (maybe even thousands, not sure) and for a big dog really healthy so I think it's alright.

Those huge irish wolfmemedogs with the lifespan of a fruit fly are far worse
>>
I saw a borzoi in real life once. Just once. Such an awesome dog. I didn't go up to it though, because the owner was this stupendously fat woman and I didn't want to interact with her.

if you have a dog bring it to a dog park

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Borzois kinda natural? Like as natural as a dog can be, I mean. I remember reading somewhere that they're not a super human-manipulated race like so many we have today.

To hunt wolves in cold climates

Sight hounds are an ancient race. Borzoi are just another Victorian breeding project, which drew from ancient sight hounds like the Afghan.

>>3137201
I think they're beautiful. Can't believe how long I've lived not knowing of them
>>
I would like to have one, but they are too active for my lifestyle, I wouldn't want to make them suffer in my tiny flat.

I have no issues as long as they are healthy. Compared to pugs, boxers or those contorted abomination pitbulls they dont have any health issues.

They're forest spirits. Every encounter with them is a blessing.

The favorite dog of furry edgelords. Seen too many furry artwork of borzoi wearing nazi uniform.
>>
My sister had three Borzois in a row. The first one lived only about 6 years, the second one only about 4 years, the third one something like 10 years and sired lots of puppies.
Very calm, chill dogs. When very excited, their ropy tails would sway a little side to side. Completely untrainable, not interested in following orders, but affectionate companions.

wtf i hate borzois now

Maybe you should stop browsing furry artwork, you fucking faggot
>>
>>3138589
Why the fuck are you looking at so much furfag art?
>>
reminder
>>
>>3138617
I make money off of drawing adult art for furries, the people in the niche market for niche fetish art will pay a lot of money. Been in the business for almost a decade. Borzoi are popular with antifa furries too, another edgy special snowflake group of people.

Look at dem 'EVUL' borzoi adoptables.

I cant even imagine how rancid and polluted your brain must be by now. I shudder to think of the horror youve conceived and produced inside that diseased and oily sponge you call a brain.

nigger he just said he draws it
if u meet a furry only like a 4/10 chance they actually believe they are a dog or they fuck dogs
6/10 chance they just like the art or are an artist
maybe a 2/10 chance they are actually functioning members of society and with what money they drop on fursuits and commissions they can not be neets or.failures.
i always interpreted furries.as the modern masked societies.doimg.fucked up shit
some of the shit is detestable but that will happen
most of.it is partying and premarital homosexual sex but thats society at large anyway
>>
Stop disparaging Borzoi you polshits.

No, he is right. I draw it, i witness it, and the content/ideas get etched into my mind. There is a good amount of mental illness represented in the furry community as well as a good amount of very very weird porn or violent fantasies.

However it really isn't as bad as the non-furry real life shit that some people get up to. Id rather see cartoon drawn depictions of violently gory cactus rape, not real life images and videos of real people doing those things.

why do they always look so apologetic?
>>
>>3137550
You could take care of one in a flat if you have 20 minutes of free time to spare everyday. They're like cats.

You take them out and they hit escape velocity for 20 minutes or so, make a pass around the sun and then they turn into couch potatoes for the rest of the day.

dog parks are full of disease and retards tho

>>3140305
Your dog should be fully vaccinated whether you take it to a dog park or not.

I’d say it’s about 8/10 people just whacking off to whatever they want or think anthro art is cute and you would not be able to tell the difference between them and a non furry at all, 1.8/10 the actual furries you see talked about online, and at a stretch 0.2 the really bad ones, aka the actual dog rapers, fetish in public, etc.

It’s like most fandoms, tons of people who you can’t even tell cus it’s just in private and not a serious part of their life, then the antics of the bad minority get blown out of proportion.

I dated a ‘furry’ who hated furcons and just liked the art. Was nice knowing we could both make fun of furries. They were legitimately more of a normie than me too.
