Introducing Ch 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 certain person.  


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.
