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.

Winter Fun

Once again, I've been horrible updating Xsara's blog. A lot has happened since my previous post. First of all, I have successfully graduated from college and now I have even more time to spend with my dogs. They are both doing very well and I'm incredibly proud of them.

Xsara and I participated in European Beagle Agility Cup in Slovakia. It was a lot of fun, even though it was incredibly cold. Xsara ran very well and was leading the competition from the first run until the end, but we had a little mishap in our last run. As she came onto the dogwalk, something got into her ear and she started shaking her head so hard that she lost balance and fell off the dogwalk. Luckily she didn't hurt herself, but we lost our prime spot and finished on 2nd place.

We also participated in a Rally Obedience trial in Koper. She really likes rally a lot! She worked very nicely and placed 2nd in a tough competition. Next year we're planning on taking the exam for RO-III.

We have a lot of snow and very cold temperatures in Ljubljana at the moment. Xsara likes playing in the snow a lot! But currently we are enjoying holidays in our beloved Strunjan by the sea, so we got away from extreme temperatures and the snow for a while - even though there even was some snow here for a couple of days! Here are some snowy photos of my sweet little beagle, taken mostly by Polona again (thanks :)):
