Sava Sara Brakada, AKA Xsara was born on 06-27-2004. She was raised in Kennel Brakada spending the first two months of her life on beautiful countryside Gorenjska (Slovenia) with her siblings and parents. As soon as she came to Ljubljana we started a puppy class, followed by an obedience class. She passed her B-bh exam with 96 points (instructor Agility EO winner Polona Bonač). We now continue with Rally-Obedience under Polona's supervision. Our biggest passion however is Agility. We started our first Agility class in October 2005 (club Agility Ilirija, instructor Silvia Trkman, two times agility world champion). When Silvia stopped teaching agility classes, we switched to Daša Zakotnik. We regularly participate in Agility trials in Slovenia and sometimes abroad. Xsara also loves to learn new dog tricks, you can see some of them in our videos. Her other passions include long walks, big meals and playing with dogs, specially her pyr shep sister Tani, her crazy agility pals and her sister Sena.

Crazy Agility People

I remember the first time I thought we were becomming obsessed with agility. We had been training for a couple of months and my trainer Silvia Trkman told me I could come again on Saturday. "But Saturday is Christmas Eve ...". She gave me a very confused look: "That's OK, you can come next week then". And all I could think was - I would rather be here than anywhere else. I mean, I was gonna take Xsara for a walk anyway, what difference does it make. We usually go out of town for New Year but not Christmas, I'm never having people over for dinner since everybody knows I can't cook, and most of all "what else would I rather do on my day off"? I guess that Christmas Eve I officially became
The crazy agility person - and proud of it!

This Saturday we had no trials - the season is over and Winter Cup hasn't started yet. We're going to do some trials abroad and train a little more until this break lasts. Fortunately we have a lot to work on!

Thanks to Sandra for this photo.

Xsara, Christmas Eve coming up already? That's fast...You really love agility don't cha? How old are you now btw girl? You look like you're quite mature already but still GREAT in agility! I'm sooo impressed with you...Are there any Goldens competing too? Maybe next time if we two meet up, we both can compete together but I doubt that I will win. I'm not fast enuf...LOL!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

I actually thought of Christmas because I saw one blogger in USA already making homemade Christmas cards.

dory and liza: thank you!

amber-mae: Xsara is not mature at all, she's only three years old. Some people think she's a lot older because she has very little pigmentation and has white hair, but she's always had them. Other people think she's still a puppy because of her baby face, playfullness and energy. We have some goldens in agility here and I've seen a really good one on world championship this year! Anyway, nice to hear from you again!

Hi.... I am a beagle mix, and me and my brother and sister do agility!! We are addicted, too. My sister Katie just started her 2nd year of agility and my brother and I are in our first year. We are glad we found your site!
