I had such a difficult time choosing
Shimmer. I actually had my heart set on her sister, Rave,
who immediately brindled. Shimmer chose to brindle much
later and ruined all of my plans... ha ha. I kept both sisters for
a very long time. I finally told my friend Alicia to just take one
of them and run like hell... just kidding! I am very happy with my
decision to keep Shimmer. She just looks so much like her
Mother, Fashion, how could I not.
Shimmer will be making her debut in August at our regional
specialty. We know this girl holds a lot of our future dreams.
Shimmer attends the Akita Club of Puget Sound as her very
first show and takes Best In Sweeps. Her 2nd weekend out she
attended the Lone Star Akita Club's Specialty. She earned Best In
Sweeps under breeder Judge Carol Evans. The next day was a
supported show and Shimmer again earns Best In Sweepstakes
under breeder Judge Barry Elliott. She went on to earn back to back
MAJORS! All of this at barely 9 months old. Watch her Shine!!!!
Shimmer earns her 3rd major going Best of Breed over specials
from the 9-12 month puppy class under Judge Patricia Craig Trotter.
