Poem: Russian Wolfhound “Argos,” 1998-2004 (unpublished)

Russian Wolfhound

Argos was my first Russian Wolfhound (Borzoi). I adopted him as a one-year-old from a rescue group in Indiana. He had been abused and was a skeleton. During our all-too-brief time together he blossomed into a shy but sweet and trusting dog. At six years old he died of a blood clot to the brain following emergency surgery for Lung Lobe Torsion. That was in 2004 and I still miss him.
