I’m so glad I discovered how to add tag searches to my dashboard, because now I can give you…daily borzois!

Dachshunds, adored companions to writers and artists

Don’t even front, dachsunds. The borzoi is the premier literary dog breed.

“From the very beginning we have frequently been asked the meaning of the word “Borzoi” and what it has to do with books. When I started in business the publisher I admired most was London’s William Heinemann, and the sign of a Heinemann book was a windmill… . Since a windmill obviously had nothing to do with books, I saw no reason why we could not adopt the Borzoi as our mark.”
—Alfred A. Knopf, 1948
