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.  

UPDATEShimmer 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.

Shimmer earned her championship on August 13, 2005 with another major.
Ohhh, how you Shine!

April 2006, Shimmer shines in the specials ring winning Best of Breed 2 days over male specials the weekend of the Las Vegas Akita Specialty.  May 2006 Shimmer wins BOB and a Group 3 under Judge Michelle Billings.  June 2006, Shimmer earns a Group 3 under Judge Linda Reidel, and a Group 4 under Judge Beverly Bonadonna-Vics.  August 2006 Shimmer attends the Colorado Kennel Club Shows and earns a Group 2 under Judge Aramis Joey Lim of Australia.  Shimmer finished 2006 as #11 Akita All Breed System.
