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.

New Collar

Guess what was in our mailbox today! A couple of months ago we sent a photo of Xsara's floor decoration (I'm sure you still remember it) to Patience who was writing an article to educate people on the bad idea of puppies as presents. She asked her readers to send her photos of doggy disasters, much like Xsara's job on the floor. Every dog who got their picture published won a custom made beauteemous Holiday collar:

Isn't it beautiful?!
By the way: you can read Patience's article here. I know Christmas is over but I think this topic is really very important. Thanks again for the collar, Patience!

Bless you, bless you Barby and Xsara for introducing me to Patience. I went to your link for her blog and am absolutely in love with her writing and stories! She is truly gifted. How did you discover her? I didn't check ... is she on DWB?

Beautiful collar as well! Congratulations to Xsara for having her floor decoration featured.

Beautiful collar!

We too find it painful when we see animals being sold as presents.

But I hope that we've managed to educate more than a few people to think otherwise.

Happy weekend!

Hi Xsara,
We are just returning from reading that great insightful article and saw your great handy work. But with your agility training and your mum's hard work you turned out to be a very smart dog.
That's a very nice collar you got.
