Que was an exciting bitch that I finished from the Open class. The judges loved her and placed first or second every time except once (a fourth) and I think the seconds were because she's a white.  Judges are seeing more whites now.  Unfortunately, she only had one litter and was never able to conceive after that.  She was spayed in 1999 and retired with my friend Todd.  Que lived to be over 14 years old.

Indi was OFA prelim Good at 7 months and 13 months.
He was OFA'd at 26 months old and received a
mildly dysplasic rating.  This is the reason I think

Zara was a lovely red female.  She moved like a dream, effortlessly, due to her balance and correct front and rear.  She earned all of her points from the Bred-by Class.  Zara was more like a Labrador than an Akita.  My precious Zara passed away at five years from tularemia bacteria infection she acquired from an infected rabbit she caught.  It affected part of her lung and her heart, my vet removed 1/4 of her affected lung but nothing could be done for the heart.  The surgery gave me another ten days with my girl.  She was the first Akita that I lost with choosing the moment to say goodbye, but I was with her during her last moments.
