Description

Regal Duo is featuring two Borzois. They are Russian Wolfhounds. During the centuries of Romanov rule in Russia, wolf hunting was an all-consuming  passion of the Russian aristocracy. Nobles would stage ritualized hunts—festivals, really—on their vast estates, with their guests, horses, and hounds ferried in on special hunt trains. It wasn’t unusual for a hundred Borzoi and just as many servants to be employed in these extravagant affairs, which traditionally concluded with a great feast at the manor house.
