The History of Ens Lumens
First time I saw those dogs when watching the movie “Revange”. I liked a yellow dog that belonged to the main hero – strong, friendly and playful dog. I felt very sad when the dog got killed in the middle of the movie... One day I was taking a walk in a park and saw a dog that looked very much like that dog from the movie. We stoped to talk with the owner of the dog and I found out that the dog was a labrador. Labradors are very cute and cheerful dogs, they can work really hard and they are good hunters. People who owned labradors in the USSR (now former USSR) – either had a successful career, or were very famous. Those days labradors were rare to meet in the street. Mostly there were black and yellow labradors.
That lady told me a lot about her Chanel and let me pet her favourite dog. And suddenly I realized I wanted the same dog. I wanted a dog with a soft hair and affectionate look and wonderful temper. I called a chief of a kennel club in Moscow and shared with her my wish to own a yellow labrador. But they showed me some new chocolate puppies brought from Novosibirsk . When one of the puppies buried his nose in my hands and then licked my lips and he smelled like coffee and buckwheat I knew I found my treasure.
When this puppy appeared in our apartment we had a feeling she's been there with us all the time. Walks and feeding and playing with our puppy were so natural for everyone in our family, nobody felt bored.
We did not find a single spoiled shoe or damaged peace of furniture. Our puppy always had a keen appetite and during walks many people could not pass by without stopping and expressing their admiration.
Very soon we discovered that our dog was a true lady. She was intelligent, smart, clean and very beautiful dog.
Mellany's ancestors were great dogs: Champions of GB and Belgium, Luxemburg, USA, India and Russia. In her pedigree there are blood lines of very famous dogs such as Baron, grandson of the Champion of England, Othamcourt Shane of Saddie, brought to the USSR in 1984; Raj (Hedlyday Grant Marnif – Inde) brought from India in 1989, Eva Kinley Star (Brandy Snap from England – Zenta) owned by N.V.Teslenko; Silver Cloud's Borg brought from India in 1993; Sweettrees Mac from Belgium born from the US Champion Sweettrees Dark Sensation and Sweettrees Justso. All those dogs had a big influence on formation of the breed in Russia.
The history of our kennel can be defined as a further evolution of black and chocolate labradors in Russia. In dog shows Mellany took prize places but her truly loved and favourite hobbie has always been hunting.She had a real hunter's passion, she had no equal in duck, black grouse, hazel grouse and hare retrieval. Mellany appeared to be a great breeder and her puppies inherited best breeding qualities and a real labrador's temper.
Our first puppies were born in 1997 from Mellany and chocolate Lorts Harvey - Interchampion, Champion of Russia, Belorus, Lithuania, Estonia.
Zagrace Nord was the best chocolate puppy – he became a Chamnpion of Russia.
