Tani ...

... was born in a litter of 4 puppies on December 25th 2008. She spent the first two months of her life in the Loubajac kennel in the French Pyrenees. Her mother is Pecquelette de Loubajac and her father Hob-Nob's Victor.

When she came to stay with me, we started Silvia Trkman's puppy school, followed by Sivia's tricks class and later on agility handling classes in LoLaBu training center. We do everything using only positive training techniques. We are very fond of Silvia and her dogs, specially the crazy little La who is Tani's 3/4 sister. We also attended handling classes with Daša Zakotnik and Polona Bonač.

Tani has many passions in her life. The biggest one is agility, of course, but she also loves playing with her beagle sister and BFF Xsara, hiding her toys in the most odd places, running through the fields and meadows, playing with sheep and eating.

A Walk With Polona And Her Gang

Yesterday we went for a walk with our agility friend Polona, her super sweet and super smart toller Wi and Bamm Bamm, who is staying with Polona while his mom is on vacation. Polona took some amazing pictures of my girls, so BIG thanks to her. Here are Tani's pictures at almost 7 months:

We had a lot of fun together so we already agreed to go for another walk when we return from EO.

Tani Swims!

My very big wish came true: Tani likes to swim :) She is still a little insecure when she cannot touch the ground, but she goes to swim anyway, my brave little girl.

We were at the seaside for a week with many of her canine friends. At first, she only went in the water up to her tummy and watched the others have fun. But one day she decided to give it a try and she followed the gang deeper and deeper. She swam with them for about 15 minutes. The next day she ran into the water as soon as we arrived on the beach, but wouldn't swim much, so we just played on the shore for the rest of the time. Then it was time to go back home and we couldn't try any more swimming for a week, but yesterday we went for a trip to the seaside again and she ran into the sea as soon as we came to the beach. There were waves so she couldn't swim normally, but she kept trying so I decided to take her to another beach after lunch. With no waves there, she swam for about 15 minutes.

We are going to EO on Thursday and then on vacation again (I am working on my diploma and our house by the sea is the perfect place for writing). We will stay there for 3 weeks, so she will have many opportunities for swimming this summer :)
