  21.11.2009 I Special show, Zagreb, Croatia

Sky's breeder Neda, her 3 collies, Sky and me went to Zagreb to be part of British Sheep Dog special show. It was very nice and relaxed show as the judge Brenda Banbury is a really nice land friendly lady. She gave Sky excellent grade and second placement as she saw Sky didn't really enjoy this show. Sky was tired from the long drive and kind of nervous in the ring...which was, as usually, mostly my fault. But the judge really admired her colour and nice expression, so I am happy with the result. First placement and junior cac went to Neda's new girl, Moon, who is a beauty without a doubt and has no problems being in a ring ;) Neda's othergod, Dandy got very promising and was second best puppy of the show and her youngest girl Lexy was very promising 2. What an evening :)

  7.11.2009 I Picnic at my place

5 rough collies and their owners came to visit me and Sky. It was a great afternoon and we had a lot of fun watching all this beautiful collies run and play!



  29.10.2009 I Sky is 1 year old! Happy birthday my dream girl!

One year ago, on that day, something wonderful happened - a little blue merle girl was born into Holy collies kennel. She was the 1st of seven beautiful puppies. When her breeder Neda called me, I started jumping and screaming of joy! I was all crazy for whole two days!! I would later visit my little Sky and her siblings every weekend and patiently waited for her to come home with me. When she finally arrived, I was so happy. That was the second best day of my life(the first was when I got my first collie, Gaja). Sky was something special right from the start, not only sooo cute and beautiful but also really smart and so full of energy. She was, and still is, much more that I could have ever dreamt of. She is filling my days with felicity and joy and I am so happy destiny has brought her into my life!



  17.10.2009 I Picnic of Holy collies

We all met up at Sky's breeder Neda and enjoyed an afternoon at her ranch. There were more than 10 collies and it was a true joy watching them play and run. Also Sky's sister Glory and brother Zorro where there and I am really happy to have seen them. Too bad the other half or our A litter couldn't make it, but hopefully I will see them soon on some of the upcoming shows!

  26.9.2009 I 11 months and CACIB Celje

For Sky's nearly 11 months birthday we went to the Cacib Celje dog show. That was our 1st indoor show and Sky was fantastic! She didn't mind being stuck in a closed-space with loads of dogs, she performed really well in a ring and she got a fantastic description along with grade Excellent1, JCAC and even Junior BOB!

The judge Josefina Gómez-Toldrà owns a kennel  Del Gran Kahnn  and has been breeding rough collies for 30 years, so her opinion means a lot to me!

  13.9.2009 I The afternoon with Katarina, Ruby and Lord

We visited Sky's friend Ruby, who is a 7 months old tricolour girl, and Lord, a three old handsome sable boy. They have great fields for running and our collies had the best time. It was a pleasure waching them run and play :)

  6.8.2009 I A trip in the mountains

We went for a all day trip to the waterspring of 'Soča' river with Sky's sister Glory and her family. The girls had the best time and so did we.

  15.8.2009 I Cac Gradisca - Isonzo, Italy

After a little break, we are back in the show world! Sky was in the class of young dogs for the first time and the judge liked her very much. She got excellent and very nice description so I am very proud of her! Also her behaviour was much better, she was not afraid of the judge and did not try to run away. We have to practise some more, but I am very satisfied with the progress we have made :)


With the judge Montenau Petru

Also her beautiful sister Toffe was there so the girls had the chance to see each other again.

  29.7.2009 I My beauty is 9 months old!


  17.7.2009 I A visit of sister Glory

 We finally took time to visit Sky's good friend & sister Glory. Princess Glory lives in a real paradise.The place is surrounded by green fields and loats of trees, there is a little pond and she has a company of 52 rabbits, 2 cats and a few chickens.


First thing Sky did was falling into water! At least we know she knows how to swim! ;)

  6-14.7.2009 I A week in Maribor

We stayed in Maribor for the Lent festival and Sky really enjoyed the long walks along the Drava river. Everyday we also met some old or new friend so it really was a fun week.

  5.7.2009 I CACIB Lendava and visit of Unique's Diamond collies

This time we went to a show just as visitors and to cheer for Sky's siter Glory. It was a nice show but the day was way too hot and humid and some dogs, including Glory, felt really bad. She still did great and it was really nice watching her great presentation in the ring.


After the show we went to see Lea and her rough collie Adria and smooth collie Sena. Sena is the 1st and only smooth collie in Slovenia. The girls are great, really beautiful, nice and ful of energy. They got along great and played the whole afternoon while we were drinking coffe and chatting :)

  4.7.2009 I Visit of Holy Collies

We went to Sky breeder Neda's ranch and spent a really nice day there with her, her sons and her collies. I finally got the chance to met her new tricolours, Moon and Dandy, and they are both so adorable!

  1.7.2009 I A weekend in Maribor

We went to Maribor to meet a 3 months old rough collie Naya and her owner Ana. The little pup is really sweet and we spent a nice afternoon with her and with Sky's old friend, border collie Mimi. 


  29.6.2009 I Sky is 8 months old!

  Happy birthday babe!


  6/7.6.2009 I Dog Shows CACIB Portorose and CACIB Alpe Adria, Slovenia

This weekend was our third dog show. On the first day Sky was great, she was a little bit afraid of the ring because a big piece of cartoon feel on her when we were practicing earlier that day, but she got very promising and later came among the finalists in BIS puppy. So I was very proud of her!


                                                                        (c) Katarina Petrič                                                          With the judge Beata Petkeviča     

The second day was a little bit less successful...We got a judge from Venezuela, who was very nice but also very big and Sky got really scared of him. She doesn't trust strangers at all and she doesn't want to be touched if she doesn't know people. So she almost ran off the ring and even if we got a really nice description, she got only promising because of the funny presentation. So I decided to take a little break from all these shows and focous on more fun stuff like agility and learning tricks. We will also work a little bit more on socialization and try again when she grows a little older. I know she is a very beautiful and smart collie-girl and I am so happy she is mine!

  31.5.2009 I Dog Show CAC Hrušica, Slovenia

  9/10.5.2009 I Sky's first dog show

We went to out first dog show in Umag, Croatia. It was a two days international cacib show. Despite our lack of experiences and my nervousness, we did great. Sky was evaluated very promising baby on both shows and received great description from an Irish judge SEAMUS OATES ( who judges also in world's dog show Crufts) and Croatian judge SINIŠA CUJAN . You can read those fantastic descriptions in Shows

Sky was even the forth most beautiful puppy on the first BIS puppy show! More photos in  gallery

  26.4.2009 I Sheepdog

Today I took Sky to a Test of Sheepdog Natural Aptitudes at the Sheepdog Isontino with Martina Bossi.

She did great, she knew right away what she was expected to do any really enoyed herding those sheep. The tainer sees great potential in her and invited us to come back and practice some more.

She got 67 points out of 70, but she wasn't evaluated for obedience and balance as she is still a puppy. 

And that is Sky in the act.



(C) Maja Rokavec

Also her sister, Glory, was there. They haven't seen each other for more than 4 months, but it looks like they are still great friends. Glory was amazing at the herding and got the highest score of all rough collies!


  10.4.2009 I Sky at the seaside

We took Sky to Slovenian seaside for the first time. The weather was great and we all enjoyed the walk on the beach. A photographer Gregor Kervina joined us on the way and he took some truly beautiful pictures. 



  29.3.2009 I My baby is 5 months old!

Happy birthday my beautiful girl!



I took her for a nice walk with her favourite friend, As :)


  22.3.2009 I Puppy school in Ajdovščina

 Today we went to check puppy's training in Ajdovščina. There were a lot of puppies and Sky really enjoyed meeting them. But of course she loves spending time with her friends Riva and As the most.



She was full of energy that day and since it was a beautiful sunday afternoon, I took her with us to her first real hike. She absolutely loved it!

  16.3.2009 I Puppy school in Ljubljana

Today we went to our first puppy school meeting with Silvia Trkman in KD Ilirija.

Sara and Riva joined us and the trip was much easier with them. The school was great, we met a lot of super adorable puppies and we learned a few new tricks. We also saw a very beautiful 3 months old sable rough collie Melly. She is just like my Gaja used to be as a puppy!

  15.3.2009 I Dog training school in Ajdovščina

  We went to the opening of our dog training school in Ajdovščina. Also Polona and As went with us and they played with Sara's Riva and a border collie Glen.

They were getting to know water...                                                   ...and enjoyed each other's company

It was a great, sunny day, so we went for a walk along the river Drava.
