Yes, I know, another Tequila name... I just could not help myself.  For those of you who have seen the movie, The Cowboy Way, you will know where the registered name comes from.  Sauza is an incredible combination of her sire and dam, and also resembles her beautiful granddam, Ch. Sondaisa's Golden Gait, ROMP.   If she can do half the winning her sire and dam have accomplished we will be more than pleased.  Sauza is co-owned with our wonderful friends Rick and Teresa Witte of Stardust Akitas. 

Sauza earned her Register of Merit in 2 litters.  A huge thank you to Dan and Danielle, Ron and Tracy, Carol, Monica, Rebecca and Stuart, Brett and Chasity, Carlos and Javier.  All of you have been incredible owners and friends.  I cannot thank you enough!

FLASH - Sauza finishes her championship at the Rose City Classic major shows in Portland, Oregon, January 2005.  

Sauza reminds me so much of her Dam, Fashion.  Her sweet disposition, obedient loyalty, show attitude, and flawless elastic movement.  Not to mention correct breed type. Sauza and I have become quite the team and I look forward to specialing her a little bit in the near future.

May 2005 Sauza earns her Canadian Championship in 2 days.  This was her first visit to Canada.  A big Thank you to Judge Richard Beauchamp for her Best of Breed over 3 Specials.  Also for her Group 3!A wonderful Best Bred By Exhibitor in Show from Judge Ann Hennigan.  Thank you also to Judge Dr. John Reeve-Newson for Best of Breed over 4 Specials and cut in the group.  Also Judge Albert Holobach for the Best In Specialty Show win at the Akita Action Association Specialty over several Specials from the Bred By Exhibitor Class.  Thank you to everyone in Canada for their kind words and hospitality! 

Sauza attended her first ACA National Specialty in 2008.  She earned an Award of Merit at the pre-National and Best Brood Bitch at the National.  We are so very proud of this girl.  We are blessed to have an amazing show dog, and producer of many champions.  Not to mention her amazing talent of befriending all she meets.  Currently we are preparing Sauza for competing in the obedience ring and attaining her Therapy title. I am certain she will excel there as she has done in every ring and every thing.

March 2009, In one weekend Sauza earns 2 of her 3 legs in obedience. We look forward to adding her obedience title to her name.  Sauza earns her obedience title on March 28, 2010 in Bremerton, WA.
