Summer is here, I haven't updated Xsara's blog in months, but who has the time?!
Unfortunately, Summer has started badly for Xsara. She pulled one of her nails out on one of our walks and she is limping. It had almost healed and we started training again, but then she managed to lick it through bandages and now it's infected. She's on antibiotics, has to wear a sock or a shoe at all times and is hopping on 3 legs, but she still has the biggest smile on her face. She is such a sweet dog, really! The vets say her leg should be back to normal in a week or so now that she's on antibiotics, so I really hope she'll be back to normal before EO. Before getting injured she had quite a good season and she managed to qualify for the event, so I'm really proud of her.
- 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.
