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.

I've been sooooooo busy lately, summer is definitely my season so not nearly enough time to do everything one would like ... such as blogging for example. Anyway, bater late then never, so some updates on what we've been up to.

First we attended a Rolli Schiltz seminar and spent some time with Tani's sister Rayas and her Christine. Here are some photos by Jana Dretnik (thanks, Jana!!):

Tani was on the cover of Slovenian magazine Moj pes (My dog) representing the pyrshep breed. More about the magazine HERE:

We spent 17 days in July competing in Scandinavia. Tani did really well in Jutlandia Cup (Denmark), she set some best times, won some rounds, qualified for the finals and was 2nd in the end. I was really proud of her, she listened, she was in a great mood for running and we had a blast. It was a really special feeling to run in front of a crowd cheering for us, I've never experienced that before. I thought I'd be nervous but completely forgot about it as soon as we came to the startline. So we just had fun and it was great :) Unfortunately no videos, only some photos by Daša Zakotnik and Gitte Poulsen (thank you both!):

After Jutlandia we went to EO in Sweden. I wish I could say we did great there too, but unfortunately things didn't go quite as planned. I guess we must have left all of our luck in Denmark :) We had two nice disqualifications and two ugly ones, I could see that Tani was still tired from all of those runs in Denmark (5 days of competitions), swimming in the Northern sea, the excitment of camping and running around with other dogs all day long ... Well, we did our best to have fun anyway, we played a lot, cuddled more than usually and cheered for our team-mates who had some brilliant results - congratulations to Silvia and Bu for 1st place, Polona and Kiša for 2nd place in large and our medium team, woooooow! Thanks to Olga Kwiecień-Maniewska we have some nice photos from there too :)

After the long trip we took some time to relax, swim, play and run, just enjoy summer while it lasts. We're heading for Corsica again next week, Tani is improving her surfing skills so she's becoming a real pro, and she's mastering a few new summer sports so video coming after our vacation. And of course, we have some competitions planned for the future, so yeah - we will keep being really busy, the way we like it :)
