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.

I really became horrible updating Xsara's blog! But well, Summer is our favourite season and we love to spend as much time as we can outside.

Xsara is doing great, she has very nice times on trials lately (4.4m/s, which is great for her). I measure her excitement on trials by the level of her barks and howls and well, she's very loud :)

EO was not her favourite thing this year, it was cold, muddy and it rained all the time. She has a strong preference for higher temperatures. But we were together and she really likes agility, plus most of her friends were there, so it was OK.

After EO we seriously needed to defreeze so we went to Corsica where she met tiny little rabbits. She was only interested in them if they were moving, once they stopped she didn't know what to do with them any more. She doesn't like to swim, but apparently the places we visited were just too tempting so even she decided to get a little wet :) She also loved hiking, camping and being outside all the time, so we're defenitely going back!

She and Tani are best friends, they play together, sleep together, cuddle together, they are inseparable. I'm very happy that they get along so well, and Xsara is defenitely very happy to have company.
