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 Photos

Here are some new wonderful action photos of Xsara, taken by French photographer Valerie Teppe (thank you, Val!). Xsara is doing great. She really enjoys summer and extremely hot temperatures. I must constantly monitor her sun exposure and make sure she doesn't get too much of it. Every time I look away, she sneaks to the terrace and tries to catch some sun before I urge her back into the house. I find this obsession very funny. Anyway, here are the photos I was talking about and I guess I'll see some of our readers on EO next week :) Can't wait for the Czech adventure to begin!

Nice photos. Your dogs are always so happy and fun to watch. They are in great shape, how do you keep them so fit? What food do they eat now, I know Xsara had stomach issues, do you still cook for her? A friends dog recently had the same kind of issues. Good luck in coming competitions.

Xsara and Tani said...

My vet thinks Xsara's problems were due to her not drinking enough water. That's why she had problems digesting dry food, because there wasn't enough fluid in her digestive tract. Now she eats food that contains enough moist, and sometimes dry food but served in a bowl of water, so that she is forced to drink. She hasn't vomited in a year and a half, and before she used to have episodes every month! I add salmon oil daily, and enzymes and probiotics in the winter.

Tani currently eats Artemis.

Apart from eating high quality food, they of course have a lot of physical and mental excercise, I think that's very important. They have several walks off leash every day, where they can run free, play and explore. I can't imagine our lives without that!
