Queen is a fifth generation Moonlight Akita and she has produced three litters as follows:

Queen is my special Akita.  The moment she was born I knew she was the one to watch.  At six weeks I knew she would never leave.  She is my housedog and my girl.  I couldn't ask for a better companion or a more beautiful Akita to share my life with.  My "Queen Bean", "Q" or  "The Queen" is all an Akita should be: dignified, stoic, occasionally silly and always THE ONE.  She brings me much joy and happiness.

 


 

The photos below are of Queen becoming a champion.

Special thanks to Ree Keca for providing me this ringside snapshot.
Unfortunately none of her national "official" photos were particularly good. 

Queen is shown above at the 2005 Akita National, standing naturally with the most awesome Akita handler that exists, Mrs. Rusty Short.  Queen was definitely the crowd favorite as she showed herself time and time again to be a "hands not required" show girl.  I thank every single person that complimented Queen and offered to take her home with them and everyone that provided the great applause and cheering.  She is a breeder's dream girl, one that I knew was special at 6 weeks old and its awesome to have so many breed experts (ringside spectators) confirm my opinion of my Queenie.  

I thank all of Queen's fans for thinking highly of my girl and making me realize that I wasn't a breeder wearing rose colored glasses when it comes to evaluating Queen and thinking so highly of her.

THANK YOU breeder judges for awarding Queen her wins at her first Akita National.
