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.

Happy Birthday, Xsara!

I can't believe it's been exactly 6 years since Xsara's breeder called me and told me she had a puppy for me. It seems like yesterday. And yet, Xsara and I have been through so much together, that at the same time I feel like she's always been with me. I only have one wish for her birthday. I wish she would stay exactly as she is - my healthy, happy and sweet little dog who likes to cuddle under the blankie even when it's 40°C outside, who howls like crazy when I bring her to the startline and always gives her best, who loves all people and animals, specially her family, who has the cutest puppy-like expression in the world and who would trade anything but her green ball for a piece of cheese :) I promise I'll do everything I can to keep that tail wagging for many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many ... years to come!

Summer is defenitely Xsara's season. She loves hot weather and wants to be in the sun all the time. Of course, I don't let her do that. Every time I tell her to go in the shadow to cool down a bit, I get an annoyed look from her. But she's a good girl and she listens to me. She's having some really good runs this season, and she obviously enjoys every second we spend doing agility - and so do I :) Here are some beautiful pictures from one of our summer walks. Thank you, Polona!
