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! 

Chrome has 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!



We want all to know how well Chrome has done as a producer.  He has 14 Champions thus far out of 6 breedings.  We know that the girls he was bred to had a lot to do with his success as a producer, but nonetheless we are extremely happy with his contributions to our breed.  Chrome is definitely a clown in character and a delight to have in our home.
