BR-NC’s Pride & Joy

Here are the rescue and referral dogs of BR-NC through the years. Each and every Borzoi pictured here is our Pride and Joy. They are what we are all about and the reason behind everything we do. BR-NC does not find dogs for people – our mission is to find good people for wonderful Borzoi.

Baggage

By Evelyn Colbath

Now that I'm all home, bathed, settled, and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage lest I forget,
There is so much to carry, so much to regret.

Hmmmm, Yes, there it is right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough: for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things and take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage,
To never repack?

I pray that you do; I'm so tired, you see,
But I do come with baggage.
Will you still want me?
