Leabashiba Delta Force 'A' (0:0) Z (0:0) BSC.1, E.T
Sadly PK passed away with lung cancer in 2011, but she did live out
the rest of her days as the beautiful pet she was bred and born to
be and not as a breeder, she gave my mother and father in law so
much love and companionship also on the many weeks at Norval Park
beach per year.
Pk like her mum Karma (Tairnbacher Winkie Woo) was a friend and
companion first and foremost the things she accomplished in the ring
was just a added bonus.

In May, 2006, we were
pleased to announce PK had come back home to Leabashiba. Typical of
PK, she has come back into the Leabashiba pack, with absolutely no
problems and now shares her life with our other dogs. Her nature is
testament to what we hold very dear to
our goals, no character, no GSD.
When PK returned, it was hoped to have her debut in
the trial ring late 2006-2007, I had her attained her Endurance Test
title by July 2006 and was working on her obedience knowledge. My
intention was to achieve another goal, Dual achievement (winner of
obedience and conformation section) at GSD National level, before
having her speyed, but the enjoyment of this was scraped by a
Pk has now been speyed and I have given up the next
goal I had set myself and my dogs aiming for Dual, as speyed females
are not permitted to be exhibited in the show ring, but she is
enjoying herself, playing with her mates, PK is the essence of what
truly makes the GSD the most versatile breed in the world.
As you can see from her page, PK has an excellent
character and nature, beautiful with our children and excellent with
our other dogs, as is her mother,
Karma and is dam typical.
PK was consistently critiqued in the show ring:
"she won this award on her absolutely beautiful movement, what a
lovely bitch", as was her dam, Karma, at breed survey.
