BALTA LETENA golden retrievers




Skipe, Gelma and Bora, summer of 2008

Skipė (Nenuoramos Arica) was the first our dog. This golden girl came to our home
 in the middle of summer 2002.
Skipe wasn't a show dog. She was only our friend, a curious and agile golden.
 Living with her we learnt so much and understood how strongly sympathetic,
tender and irreplaceable the dog could be.

Gelma Vanile

(Gelma Vanile) is a calm, reserved and obedient golden. She is Dovilė's true friend:
together they attended Junior Handlers School, took part in Junior Handlers Competitions.
Gelma Vanile is the first our dog with a champion title and the foundation bitch of our kennel.

Dovilė and Bora, Spring of 2007

Bora Balta Letena was a "child" of our kennel. She was a nice and sweet girl from the first our
kennel litter (Gelma Vanile X Voyage du Bois de la Rayère).
 Bora brought to our life lots of remarkable moments.
Bora became Inter Champion (C.I.B and C.I.E), Baltic Junior Champion, Baltic, Finnish, Russian,
Belarus and Poland Champion.
She was the first golden retriever of our country, who got working certificate in Lithuania,
who took a very strict exam of Lithuanian Hunters Organization.
Lithuanian Cynological Society announced
Bora Balta Letena as TOP DOG 2009 in Lithuania.

Bora was the most empathic, the sweetest and the most beloved dog in our family.  It was a huge
pain to lose Bora at her 8 years old because of an inoperable tumour.

Bora Balta Letena

Miss Rumba Balta Letena
is the only one Bora's daughter from her 2 litters,
 a sister of her thirteen brothers. There are a lot of famous ancestries in Rumba's pedigree,
many of them made a great influence on the breed development.

3 generations: Gelma, Rumba, Bora in autumn of 2012

Certainly, the dogs oblige us: we try not to linger after work, we go for a walk in any weather,
 even nasty or cold, we bathe and brush them. There are concerns, but all of them wear down
 compared with the good emotions, which our goldens' quietness, dignity and liveliness give us.
It is so lovely to touch their fluffy fur, feel their head gently placed on the lap,
look into calm and clever eyes.
Our retrievers live in house with us, they are treated as family members.

We have named our kennel Balta Letena (FCI registered, FCI No 133/07).
"Balta letena"
is the white paw. "Balta" is a symbol of everything good, clear and optimistic.

The first litter of our kennel was born on 8 of January, 2007: puppies of
LT JCH, LT, LV, RUS CH Gelma Vanilė and NordJW-05, FIN, RUS CH Voyage du Bois de la Rayère.

We seek that our kennel puppies would be healthy and golden by nature.

We hope some of them will become show winners, champions, but the most important thing
for us is that everyone, with a title or without it, is loved.
