Saturday we delivered our little Red to his new family. I was not sure how the day would go and how I would feel after.

He was suppose to be our baby, right? He was suppose to love us and not want to leave us, right? He ran to them and was giving kisses. Wait…what is he doing? I helped clean him off when he was born, worried about him nursing enough, gaining enough and now he runs to a new family.

Don’t misunderstand me, this family is fantastic. I know they will be able to spend more time with them then I’m able to. But he’s my puppy. As a breeder, this is the best and hardest time. We put a lot of love and care into our pups and want the best for them. …


In the short time since I started breeding the Bolonka I have experienced all sort of things.

I’m a small in home dog breeder, and I started this blog to educate and answer any questions about the breed we raise or small dogs in general. A little about Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka, the plural first off is Bolonki. The name translates to Russian Multi Colored Lap Dog. They are an old breed from the 1800’s. A French Ambassador gave the dog as a gift to a Russian Czar. Russia fought over who actually had the rights to the dog breed. During that time they wouldn’t allow anyone to breed them outside of their borders.

Finally in the 1960’s Europe was able to breed them. Due to the lack of numbers they had some inbreeding. The older lines aren’t as pure but we are getting there slowly. In the 1980’s everyone was finally able to breed these amazing dogs. As far as my knowledge, the US didn’t get a Bolonka until around 1999 or 2000. …
