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.

Catching Up!

Uf, I'm waaaay too behind with Tani's blog, but with this beautiful weather I always have the same problem - I want to enjoy Summer outside and spend as little time behind my computer as possible.

So, Tani is now in A3, she is doing great, she is still crazy, fast and LOUD :) She enjoys every moment and I really love that about her. It's impossible to stay serious with a dog like her, and as a very wise person told me once - you shouldn't try to!

As some of my readers know, I really enjoy swimming with my dogs, but her obsession with water is ... well, sometimes a little bit over the top :) I love to watch her jump from docks and rocks and dive, swim and fetch sticks from water, but if there is no water where we go for a walk, she'll try to find some mud to throw herself into that. Better than nothing, she probably thinks but, oh well. I admit I have to laugh at her, she has the happiest face ever when she does it so I just let her be :)

June was a really exciting month for us. First we went to a big competition in Geel (Belgium), where we also attended some seminars and learned many new things that we're now trying out. She had one clean run in Open, but not a very nice one because I almost sent her into a refusal. She was still 2nd. Only a couple of days after we returned from Belgium (1200km in one direction), we went to another trip. We visited Tani's breeder Catherine and her wonderful dogs in the Pyrenees (another 1600km in one direction). Now we're back at home and ready for new summer adventures ahead of us!
