Simple stories N10 - Brixi, Lio, Darcy etc etc etc



  Back in  1214  a small Romanian town  Zolonta was founded near the border with Hungary.  Until the XVIth century  it was only a small village of about 300 inhabitants and

began to have a more important role in the region after 1606, when the prince of Transylvania, Stephan Bocskai settled 300 soldiers here and appropriated land for them. They built their own farms, but had to keep their arms ready to repel an attack by the Turks. 3 June, the day in which the soldiers were settled, is nowadays declared "the day of the city". However, Ottoman Turks captured the town in 1660 and as "Salanta", it became the sanjak center of Varat vilayet until 1692.



The XIXth century Hungarian poet János Arany was born and lived in Salonta for most of his life. Lajos Zilahy, another noted Hungarian author, was also born in Salonta in  1891. In 1920 Salonta  along with all of Transylvania  became part of Romania. Today Salonta - very cute and charming agricultural town with kind and helpful people and  good ancient traditions.


And that in Salonta almost  nearly 100 years first Leonberger in Romania appeared.  It was Valentina and Istvan  Bagosi with nice boy named Lio, who became a part of their family without  thinking of a dog show career for him and without knowing much about the breed. He was born in January 2009, but did not have a dogshow carreer.

      As he grew  so did their knowledge of this gentle giant and in the spring of 2010 they brought Brixi home  ( Berljon Opusmagnum  x Carol Najmurská Cesta )  from  the Hungarian  kennel  “Löwe von Blumengarten”.  It was love at first sight for them as well as for Lio.
      “Brixi developed well – said Valentina - and we got good results at dog shows (Romanian and Serbian Junior Champion), but unfortunately, at 17 months of age, she suddenly passed away leaving a huge hole in our hearts. We started this kennel in her memory, and we hope we can contribute to the popularization of this less-known yet wonderful breed not only in Romania”.

Than Ditta   came to Valentina and Istvan. Ditta  - Hungarian Pearl Aphrodite Venus   (born20.08. 2011   Dante vom Dreiburgenland x Kőhegy Kincse Kleó ) - 9x Best Puppy, European Junior Winner 2012 Bucharest, World Dog Show Salzburg 2012 Best Puppy, DAC Moloss Club Timișoara 2012 BiS Puppy II, CACIB SRB 2012 BiS Puppy III, 4x BoB, Ukrainian, Romanian, Serbia and Hungary Junior Champion.   

The yearly Champions' Show took place on the 19th of January 2013 in Timisoara. Ditta was in better shape than ever and won the CAC, CACIB, BOB and Champion of Champions title. Valentina and Istvan were very happy and proud. The Euro Dog Show took place last year in Bucharest between the 5th-7th of October. There were a lot of beautiful dogs, so the competition was fierce, but  Ditta managed to win the European Junior Winner title. Ditta handled herself beautifully and won both the CAC and CACIB in August 2012.

Than Darcy appeared in their family. Darcy Löwe von Blumengarten   ( born  23.03.2011, Wotan vom Matthiasberg x Jessyka Löwe von Blumengarten -  2x Best Puppy, 6x Best of Breed, 2x HPJ, DAC Moloss Junior Club Winner – Timișoara 2012, Romania, Moldova, Cyprus and Serbia  Junior Champion.

And at last On the 6th of June 2013, Darcy (Darcy Löwe von Blumengarten  and Kwenobe Balfen Shiku) gave birth to 9 healthy and beautiful puppies, 4 males and 5 females. Valentina and family are very proud of her!


A lot  of thanks to Valentina and Istvan - Brixi  Angels Leonberger kennel from Romania
