The Borzoi Connection Magazine
The first issue of the Borzoi Connection was published in October of 1997. It was the brainchild of Shen Smith and Barbara O'Neill, who thought it would help the small clubs if they didn't have to pay for a stand-alone newsletter, as well as benefitting Borzoi people all over the world. It was published quarterly for 52 issues, with the final issue (#53) comprised of tributes to Fred Edlin, Ridgeside Borzoi, and Lorraine Groshans, Loral Borzoi, who passed away in 2010.
Currently there are still some back issues available for purchase through the BCOA Shopping Cart. Proceeds from the sale of these backissues will benefit the BCOA Health Fund.
