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....
