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.

Beagle Agility Championship

Last year, Xsara and I didn't have much luck in agility championship for beagles in Slovakia because she fell off the dogwalk in her final run. This year, luck was on our side, so I'm proud to say that she won :) She was in a great mood and ran really well both days even though we had incredibly cold weather: -17°C! I wasn't the best handler she could have, it was hard for me to run two dogs on different courses, having to memorize both at the same time as I only had about 10 dogs between Tani and Xsara. But all turned out well and it was fun.

There is a lot of snow in Ljubljana and we spent a couple of days there for the girls to enjoy snow for a while. Now we're back to the coast where weather is much better. Xsara really likes it here. I am teaching her many new tricks, we go for long walks, we play together and train when we can and we also cuddle a lot. Thanks to Lenka Wami Blachová for beautiful photos of Xsara from Motešice (Slovakia)!

And here are some photos from one walk in the snow:

Congratulations on winning with Xsara! How very exciting!!

I sure hope you will make a video soon of Xsara's new tricks. We are running out of ideas and need some inspiration.
