May 24, 1987 - July 7, 1997

Sondaisa Akitas became reality when we purchased Champion Skylake's Tokyo Rose ROMP "Rose". I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on her... she was everything I had hoped she would be and more! She became our Queen because she demanded it, but also deserved it! My whole breeding program revolves around her and it is obvious in the consistency of type, temperament and health we at Sondaisa produce.

Rose finished her championship before the age of 12 months, attaining 6 Best of Breeds and a working group 2 along the way, beating her sire for best of breed. Her sire at the time was the #2 Akita in the country. You will see several of Rose's kids, grandkids and great grand kids on our site.

Rose has produced 8 champions, she currently has 18 grandkids and several great grandkids that have attained their championships. We at Sondaisa Akitas are proud to have been owned by the incomparable Champion Skylake's Tokyo Rose ROMP... We love you and will always miss your style and grace!

A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And, as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide~
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side...

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted the rose blooms there~
Its beauty even greater now,
nurtured by God's own loving care.
