I was so like a slim young borzoi yapping at the nose of a bloodhound.
borzoi Books are good books and there is one for every taste worthy of the name.
Nothing of a really seditious character was said until the borzoi commenced to address the meeting.

But the quickness of the wolf's lope and the borzoi's slower pace made it plain that Karay had miscalculated.

Olive was feeding a calm-eyed borzoi from the tea-table when Larssen and his little boy arrived.
A curve downwards (as in the borzoi) should be an absolute disqualification.
"borzoi" stands for the best in literature in all its branches—drama and fiction, poetry and art.
Russian wolfhound, 1887, from Russian borzoy, literally "swift, quick" (cf. Czech brzy, Serbo-Croatian brzo "quickly," Lithuanian bruzdeti "to hurry").
