Elka vom Schonenberg SchH 3 IPO 3
Feus v. Nymphenburg SchH 3, IPO 3, FH x Barbel
v. Haus Erlich SchH 3
Elka was imported from Germany at 7 weeks
of age. Little did I know then the impact this wonderful dog would have
on my life. We worked together in obedience and Schutzhund, obtaining
SchH 3 easily by 3 years old, with many high in trials and twice 100
points in protection.
I think her trademark was her exceptional focus at
all times, even in protection yet she never missed the bite!! Most of
her puppies display this same intense focus and concentration as well.
I actually had people ask me "what's wrong with your dog's neck?"
as she was looking at me most of the time, unless she was asleep!
Elka was my once in a lifetime dog, my best
friend, companion, protector and teammate. She taught me about life,
love and devotion. She was the foundation bitch for Kaiserhaus Dobermanns
and has many progeny working in all types of dog sports. Dayma is a
daughter from her last litter.
I will always miss her.
"Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware,
of giving your heart to a dog to tear."~Rudyard Kipling
