Well, guess what?...I
finally got my brindle girl! Okay, its a Boy! Really, I cannot thank
my good friend Alicia Meyer enough for making the decision to allow
this bundle of humor and energy to make his home here at Sondaisa
Akitas. I am realizing all of the potential this dog has to offer and
if I can ever convince him that I am not his play toy, we may get
around the ring with all 4 feet on the ground. His favorite thing in
the world is his huge water trough on his 2 acre wooded exercise
area. Rather than drinking from it, he swims in it!
thrilled us by attending his 1st show and earning reserve winners dog
to a major from the puppy class and then attending the 2003 National
in St. Louis, Missouri, and winning 1st place in the 6-9 month
puppy sweeps class, the regular class and the futurity
class. He also earned Best Opposite Grand Futurity Winner.
This dog is a stallion in a dog suit. Watching him cover ground
effortlessly and free stacking himself is an incredible sight.
I love his bone,
substance, strong top line, beautiful feet, dark
eye and over all balance... Ohhh, did I mention the CHROME?!!!
He has a wonderful combination of both his sire and his dam's
temperaments, although highly energetic, he is sweet, sweet, sweet! I
am certain this boy has what it takes to make his mark in the breed
and the show ring... Here's to your future Chrome!
The summer of 2004
has been wonderful for Chrome. He has earned several
Best of Breed wins from the classes, including his first major
win from Judge Robert Moore. His second major was earned going
Best of Winners for 5 points at the Akita Club of Puget Sound
Specialty under highly respected Judge Donna Buxton.
Chrome finished his CHAMPIONSHIP with a
3rd major under Judge Louise Van Alstyne. We are going to try out the
obedience ring winter 2005/2006. We should get some laughs if nothing
else! Oh yes, we did get some laughs and as of 2008 Chrome has
only been entered in an AKC obedience trial one weekend. If I get the
strength and guts enough to embarrass myself again, you may see us in
another obedience ring. Chrome has decided to take up fishing
and often goes out with Vince for Sturgeon. He loves it and
often tries to pull the fish into the boat...what a goof!
