- 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.

Dog Expo And Birthday Gifts
Good news and bad news. The bad news is we couldn't participate on the presentation of agility on dog Expo here in Ljubljana. The show lasted too long and I had to go to work before it was our time to run (unfortunately I work on Sundays). But the good news is, during the short time we were there (we attended the practise before the presentation) someone made pictures of Xsara. And they are published on the most popular website in Slovenia. There were about 5000 dogs at the expo, he took 15 pictures of the dogs and two of them are of Xsara. The man's got good taste, right? You can view the pictures here.
On thursday the human part of our team has her birthday. I ordered myself a gift from my favorite store CleanRun. The gift has already arrived and Xsara was happy with the content: a wide selection of dog toys and treats and some clothes and trial gear for me. We just can't wait to use all of it on the trial on Saturday - there are so few trials in the winter time, we really miss them.
