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.

EO 2010

Tani's first EO is behind us and I have to say that running there was a great experience for both of us. I learned a lot about my young dog. Now I know for sure that she is the type of dog who is always more than happy to work, in any environment. I also learned that she gets extra hyper when she has a big audience, which makes it harder for her to concentrate. And I once again got the confirmation that I have a little tunnel maniac :) I'm sure knowing this sort of things will be very useful in the future.

Camping with friends, hanging out in front of the tent until small hours, meeting old friends and getting new ones ... we sure had our share of fun. But weather was so bad this year that we are kind of happy to be back home. Our tent was leaking, everything we own was wet and muddy, and after two days I am still a little cold. Luckily, I can say that the atmosphere in Slovene team was so nice this year, that despite horrible weather conditions, this EO will always have a special place in my heart.

Here are some Tani photos taken by our PyrShep friend Olga Kwiecień-Maniewska:

Action Photos By Several Photographers

I am lucky. So many great photographers enjoy taking photos of my pretty dogs, and I always smile when I look at them. Xsara is a very pretty and photogenic dog, she has bright colours and flying ears and her photos are always stunning. Taking a nice action photo of Tani is however more difficult, she is fast and with all that hair flying around getting a clear shot of her is more of an art. Well, Valerie Teppe, Iztok Noč, Andraž Cerar and Petra Bernik apparently have no problems with it, and here is the result:

I'm also posting two videos from our competition in Vrbljene. In agility, the teeter was waaaaay to slow for her :) She missed the A-frame contact although she usually has no problems with this obstacle. But the contact on the dogwalk was very nice, which of course made me extremely proud :)

Tour de France

Tani filmed another TV ad, and this time I'm extra proud of her. Her commercial for Tour de France (cycling team AG2R La Mondiale) will be transmitted on French TV stations very frequently during the 3 weeks of Tour. The ad is very beautiful and funny at the same time. You can see it here:
