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.

Xsara in International Press

I have to share two articles with all our readers :)

The first one is a really cool article about a Beagle called Levi from South Africa. Levi and his human Annaret are our cyber friends, we only get to meet in person on World Championships. They are really good in agility, in fact they are so good that a magazine Dogs in Africa decided to publish this article about them. Xsara is mentioned in the article as well together with the link to our blog. I'm really proud of both, Levi and Xsara because beagles who work with their humans and are loving it always make me smile :) Here is a photo of the article, click on the photo to enlarge it enough to read it. Blogger keeps rotating the photo making me insane, I hope you can read it anyway!

The second one is an article about agility that was published in a French newspaper. Valerie Teppe took this photo of Xsara when she was on holidays in Slovenia and they published it together with the article. How cool is that!?

Corsica ... Again :)

We liked Corsica so much last year that we had to return this year as well. Xsara is not much of a swimmer, but she really enjoys hiking, sleeping in a tent with us and spending so much time on fresh air. She is now even more full of enthusiasm, happy and playful and totally ready for the competitions ahead of us!

Can you find Xsara here? :)
