Bolonka Bolonka Bolonka....

This has been one busy week here at Bolonka Treasures.  Our long awaited Ukranian Princess has arrived as well as a new litter of puppies....(a well planned and anticipated litter). 

First things first....our new Princess.  We call her the "Ukranian Princess". 

For several years we have been communicating with breeders carrying this line.  For one reason or another the timing wasn't quite right for us to purchase.  Well....this spring the timing was finally right.  Out of three litters from three different breeders we settled on this puppy.  Funny thing...I was planning to purchase solid black...my princess is solid brown.  Go figure.  :-). This recent import worked out perfectly for several reasons.  One is that her sister was also moving to the USA.  The problem was that the puppies if riding together would arrive in New York.  If they flew separate from the Ukraine..one would fly into New York and mine into Los Angeles.  A very stressful decision as I needed someone to trust if they flew into New York.   The owner of Ragnar offered to forward our Princess to Arizona.  We are very grateful for her help and know it was not easy for her.  It just goes to show how if you want to do something...you do, and she did.  Despite the challenges and without complaint or to seek recognition.

As many of you reading this are aware.  A war rages in Ukraine.  These puppies were purchased before this time and up until recently the breeder was living in a safe zone.  All was well until recently. Their travel to the USA was accelerated when the owner did need to flee her home after the city was attacked.   The breeder needed to send our babies or sell to another home.   The breeder needed to send our babies or sell to someone else.  The puppies were shipped to the USA from an area not in turmoil (Keiv) at the time of shipping which made me feel better.  We pray for the people of Ukraine and wish them safety.  I cannot imagine living in an area under seige.

I would like to now introduce you to our Ukrainian Princess. 

We are continually looking to improve upon our lines and believe this girl is a good addition to our program.  She is from old lines and a good match to our current residents.  She is a solid brown, her parents solid black.

Here are her parents:



Here is our princess.

Here she is home at last

She is a tiny petite girl that looks like she will mature in the same size as our other girls.   WHICH...I will start to feature introductions on my blog.  Be sure to visit often and meet the rest of our gang..

Next post...the new babies!!!! Hint (small black russian)

Show Brag

We are pleased to announce that our very own "Treasures Ragnar at Valar" owned, shown, and loved by Patti Chiaverini in New York is currently the #1 Bolonka in the USA and ranks #5 TOP Dog of all breeds showing ICKC to date. 

This is adult dog ranking; not puppy nor junior.  Ragnar is competing against many other breeds; adult dogs and champions and most importantly he is being shown by a  non-professional owner handler that is new to the breed and is not a breeder.  Which is quite a feat in this competitive field. 

We are very proud of Patti and team Valar for their hard work and dedication.  Ragnar is her buddy and it shows in both their daily lives and his enthusiasm in the ring. 

Ragnar brings our Treasures Champion list to 8.
          Roy, Rea, Ulan, Tihon, Demyan, Jassi, Blekki, and now "Ragnar"

Ragnar's parents are both OFFA health certified. 

Please enjoy our Photos as we celebrate this delightful boy:

Jassi/Willy.  Jassie is a Champion/RBIS/Multi-group winner.

Blakky/Ulan.  Blakky and Ulan are both imports.  Blakky is a Russian Champion; Ulan was shown and championed in the USA. 

These litters will produce exceptional puppies that will be ready for their new families in November.  Contact us now to reserve a baby from one of these litters. 

Enjoy the following photos of their past babies:


This is Jassi and her babies from last year (2013).  Puppies matured 6-9 lbs.  We expect equally good looking babies this year that will mature in standard size.    We will accept 3 reservations.

We expect puppies from Blakky/Ulan.  Blakky is a Russian Champion and. Ulan is American Champion.  Blakky's last litter has matured beautifully.  We expect equally beautiful puppies this year with Ulan.  Please enjoy our photos of Blakky's last litter.

Our Beautiful Beaming Betty

Betty is all grown up now.  She has a super cute little face and her pigment is amazing...black button nose, coal black eyes and full eyeliner. Her coat is like silk! Adult size is about 6 lbs.   Betty was born at Treasures in 2010. 

Betty's look might seem different than other bolonka you find in the USA.  It is a look seen in Russia...follow this link to our friends in Moscow and enjoy their beautiful fawn bolonka.  Volnira in Moscow  

Our goal at treasures is to follow the russian standard; producing beautiful, healthy dogs.  We have worked hard to meet this goal...and are quite proud of the results.

Enjoy pictures of this beautiful girl.....

The Voyager litter...Janeway, Tuvok, and Neelix

On July 17, 2013 Ulan and Rea blessed us with three spectacular RUSSIAN bolonka puppies.  Two amazing boys...one coal black and the other yellow/cream and then...one even more incredible apricot girl.

The apricot coloring is exclusive to Treasures.  Earlier this year we had an entire litter of apricot and blonde with self colored noses.  This  time...in our "Voyager" litter we have the apricot coloring with BLACK pigment.   That is our little girl....Janeway.   I think her name is fitting.

We breed to the russian breed standard; our primary concern is health and temperament.  We have been blessed with the added bonus of the most unique coloring and exceptionally beautiful bolonka in the USA.

Two boys are available.  Neelix is a stunning yellow cream with black eyes/nose/lips.  Tuvok is a tiny boy...coal black with white toes.  It is possible that these boys carry the gene responsible for the coloring in this litter....only a DNA test will confirm this.
