Morgandell Borzoi and Silken Windhounds
Morgandell Borzoi was founded in the seventies as a small hobby kennel dedicated to Borzoi.  Bill and Cyndi met at
the 1986 Nationals in Olympia Washington and so 20 years later when we both found ourselves single, it was
decided to pool our resources. Cyndi joined Bill and his Auburn Borzoi in the Sierra foothills in 2004. We are just a
hop over the hill from Reno.

The last Morgandell Borzoi litter was whelped in Washington before the move to California. Three of those,
CJ and
Kennedy amd Harmony came to California. The two girls have now traveled back to the state where they were

Silken Windhounds had already captured Cyndi's attention in 2003 after meeting a few of Chris Swilley's youngsters
in Minnesota. While they will not replace our love of Borzoi, they are here to stay.

Kalamazoo MI, March 17, 2011 – The United Kennel Club is pleased to announce the recognition of the Silken
Windhound, which originated in the United States, to our registry.

perform as therapy and service dogs.

UKC welcomes the Silken Windhound and its fanciers and look forward to seeing this exciting breed compete in
