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.

Another Anniversary

A couple of days ago, Tani and I celebrated our first year together. In honour of this very special event for us, I'm sharing some photos from our trip to the Pyrenees to get puppy Tani, taken exactly one year ago. Most pictures were taken while she slept, because that was the only way to have her still for a couple of seconds, LOL!

Three blondes driving through France with 2 GPS devices, a map and directions from Via Michelin ... We still got lost :)

We met a real legend on a gas station!

We arrived to the hotel in Pau so tired that we didn't feel like going anywhere that evening. So our dinner was onion soup from a machine in the lobby of our hotel.

In Ljubljana it was still cold winter, but in the Pyrenees it was already spring. This ladybug stopped by to bring us good luck.

The next morning we continued our way from Pau to Gan. I first met my little puppy in a parking lot :) From there we followed the breeder to the kennel. This is the first picture Tani and I took together. I was very tired but so happy that I cannot describe it and Tani was ... suddenly very sleepy :)

We went for a little walk around the property to get to know the dogs and their way of life in their natural surrounding.

Tani and her sister Razz took another nap while we were taking care of the documents, signing the contract, filling out forms and doing other incredibly boring stuff :)

I still have to look twice to understand which leg is which :)

After lunch it was time for our long way back home. Tani behaved very nicely in the car.

And some of the first pictures in her new home with me :)

Running Contacts

Here is Tani's first running contacts video. Now that she can do a normal dogwalk, training will be a lot easier:
