July 21, 1990 - March 9, 2004
Scarlett was an opportunity of
a life time. Its not very often that your first show dog is as
wonderful and actually becomes a champion all the necessary health
clearances. She finished easily with three majors and earned her
Register of Merit title from her first two litters. Scarlett
produced ten champions. She produced a Best in Show winner from her
first litter and her puppies had awesome personalities. She produced
the following champions:

Scarlett's type and pedigree
have been the greatest asset as a foundation bitch. She passed her
gorgeous Akita type to all her puppies and you can still see her in my
newest puppies. You will see her name in nearly every Akita at
I still remember Scarlett like
it was yesterday. She loved sleeping the bed. She loved
Milk-Bones, once she ate an entire box and had the most horrendous gas for
the next three days (she was kicked out of the house). Another time
she attempted to open the cookie can (a Christmas Popcorn Can) and instead
of opening it she sealed it all the way around with her teeth. I
wasn't able to open that can until a man came to the house and pried it
open with a screwdriver and a hammer. She and Nikko once stole three
pounds of beef I was cooking off the stove (a gas stove) and ate every
piece and licked the floor clean (so clean it wasn't even sticky).
Those two were partners in crime.
Scarlett was spayed in 1997
and enjoyed retired life raising and training the other Moonlight
Akitas. I choose to let her go when she had a hard time standing in
the rear. Its always a hard decision to make, when a dog is
ready. Duke had had his stoke and I choose to let mother and son go
together because I didn't want to have to suffer twice. It was a
very sad day, as everyone who has made this decision for a loved companion
She was bred by NorthStar
Akitas, Chris Weatherman. Scarlett was OFA Good, eyes clear and
thyroid normal. She lived a healthy and complete life as my girl.
