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.

Back On Track

Once again, I'm really lazy with updates. I actually have some bad news to report. A couple of weeks ago, Xsara apparently pulled a muscle or something similar. Her lower back hurt, and her hind legs were really stiff. Our vet prescribed her bed rest and something to ease the pain, but since Xsara has always had sensitive digestion, it really messed up her intestines. After a week, her back was back to normal and she could run and jump around, but it took us another 2 weeks for her digestive system to recover. Now she seems to be OK (knocking on wood), but I'm still very careful with what she eats and we're taking it easy. Long walks in the woods, home made meals and a lot of cuddling seem to be really working for her. Isn't she cute?!?!
