Me and Iron with Peter Leitmann and Black Diamond. Peter you have been a rock for me and Iron since I became his new owner. I would like to personally thank you for all you did to help Linda bring this amazing boy into the country, and now for me as his new owner. Nothing has been too much trouble.

The long trip to NSW has been more than worth it. I would like to thank the
White Swiss Shepherd Dog Club of NSW Inc. for inviting me to Sydney to be part of the White Swiss Shepherd breed stall and community in Australia. I have been completely ignored by everyone else. I would also like to personally thank Karen Fallshaw and her husband Craig, the amazing Alison Norman, Peter Leitman and Heather Scott for welcoming me, a newbie, into the fold with my beautiful boy Ironwulf when I had been ignored, ostracised and character assassinated by others around Australia because I am the new owner of Iron Akbo-Parchovany.
After 10 long years of dreaming and planning for a White Swiss Shepherd, Iron is now my wonderful boy. In the two months I have owned him I have struggled on my own with the only offer of congratulations and help (from the Australian WSS community) coming from Peter and Heather, and Karen and Alison. I really feel a part of the community.
What a fabulous training day we had yesterday and we now know what we need to work on with our new handlers and long time friends (from the German shepherd world) when we get home. I got videos Sophie Lawrence....

Hurry up mum ... I'm ready to head off to NSW to visit Heather and my friends at SilverSuisse White Swiss Shepherds ...
This website is dedicated to my White Swiss Shepherd who travelled all the way from Slovakia to live with me in Australia, and our adventures together.
