- Xsara and Tani
- 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.

As promised, I'm going to tell you more about our vacation. We went to Strunjan which is on the Slovenian coast. Our boyfriend's family has a house there, just above the salt pans. The weather was perfect, about 12°C (in Ljubljana it's about -2°C right now). We had no TV and no computer so no distractions - we just walked for hours and hours and I'm so glad we got to spend so much quality time together. I also started teaching Xsara two new tricks, so I think we'll film the part 3 of her tricks very soon. I was kind of happy that it started raining the day we had to go back home, otherwise it would be so hard to say goodbye. But we did miss agility a lot so in a way it's good to be home. We have a presentation of agility on the biggest dog expo in Ljubljana (CACIB Tromostovje) on Sunday. I hope we will find a way to participate since I have to work Sundays.
