By Far The Most Successful Nationals!
10 years ago, Michael convinced me of getting my first puppy and we went check out a dog show. 10 years later, we brought Quinn and Rumba to Nationals both shown by myself.
It is a truly incredible week where both did super! Quinn took Award of Merit at the Regional Specialty II and made the second cut at the main event. Rumba took Select Bitch, Award of Merit, and back to back Owner Handled Best In Show at both regional specialties. She also took Award of Merit at PreNational and made the final cut at the main event.
The Unstoppable: Quinn.
People say, dog showing is so political and owner handlers rarely win anything big. We say, a good dog will always win some!
The first two weekends out as a young special owner handled all the way, Quinn (CH Aces-Up You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet) won Best of Breed at two of the most competitive Akita events in US: Fort Worth (TX) and Greeley (CO). Two of the largest Akita entries with more than 10 specials including some well recognized and top ranked specials.
Spectacular comeback: Tien!
A few months shy of 5 years old, our proud son of Fraser and Couture, Tien (BISS GCHB Aces-Up Live and Let Die) has never looked better. So we decided to show him off at one of the largest summer shows in Oklahoma City, OK.
Not a surprise that Tien brought home 2 Best of Breed out of 4 days over a large and beautiful entry. Only two wins put him in Top 20 immediately.
The stars are born...
Our Rumba & Tien litter turns out to be absolutely exceptional! Out of 8 pups (2 longcoats), 4 made it to the show prospects and all 4 are possible specials.
The pick male, Geralt, will be heading to Spain to our co-breeder. Let's hope he will have a bright future there!
They are here: Rumba & Tien babies!
Our Spanish princess, Rumba (BISS CH Kyodai Only For Braves), the first time bred, whelped 8 healthy and strong babies with blessings!
The lucky daddy is Tien (BISS GCHB Aces-Up Live and Let Die), US’s Top 3 Akita 2020. This is the 2nd litter sired by our Fraser son, Tien. Out of the first litter, he has produced CH Quinn and Sora. Quinn is the only boy out of that litter:
Shined at the Largest Specialties!
First time out as a special shown by Wenny, Quinn rocked! At the largest Akita specialties by far in 2022 hosted with the Fort Worth KC shows, Quinn did not miss a placement! Entered for 3 shows out of 4, he brought home Select Dog and AOM 1st at the double specialties and a highly competitive BOB win the following day, also 3 straight OH Best of Breed!
His son, Whiskey, at 14 months also did well by winning Best In Sweepstakes, and back to back Best Bred By at the specialties, and Reserve Winners Dog to a major the next day!
New Girl in Town: Sora
Like her brother, Quinn, Sora shined the minute she entered the ring! First weekend out, she took two Winners Bitch out of 3.
Newest BISS Winner!
Rumba is not our first BISS winner. But she's the first one who finished CH on the first day of the largest cluster shows on west coast and the next day she won Best of Breed at the prestigious Puget Sound Akita Club Specialty!
Type, balance and soundness. She is the total package and she proves it in the ring with or without coat. Very proud of this stunning girl's first few weekends shown in US. Go Rumba!
Mission Impossible: Palm Springs Shows!
The kennel club of Palm Springs shows in Jan have been one of the largest and most competitive shows in US. This year was no exception. Over 3,700 entries including many top contenders.
Our Spanish import, the Crufts BOB winners, Rumba, even though completely out of coat, smashed the two day shows by winning WB & BOS over special the first day for a major, and WB & BOW & BOB over some top specials the second day including the newest AKC National Championship BOB winner!
