A Good Fight @ HOT Specialties, TX

The Heart of Texas Akita Club Specialty has been known as one of the largest and most competitive regional specialties for years. This year it welcomed an outstanding entry of 30 Akitas! The 12 specials included the National BOB winner, PreNational BOB winner, and a total of 7 BISS winners. The class dogs included the National BOW winner, National Best of Sweepstakes winner, National Grand Futurity winner, and quite a few Regional specialty winners. Most of the class entries already earned their major(s) and have excellent show records.

Although Quinn decided to blow coat the day before the trip and was bothered so much by Texas's allergy season this time, we were able to pull it off with both kiddos and brought home a few much appreciated trophies. Quinn took Select Dog and OH BISS, Crimson won back to back Reserve Winners Bitch and Best Bred By In Show.

The Sweeps @ Phoenix, AZ

After a long pause in showing for 6 months, team Aces-Up went back to the ring and smashed our goals with two beloved members. Over the 3 day showing, Quinn (BISS GCH Aces-Up You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet) took Best of Breed two days while Crimson (Aces-Up I'm Not Shy with Kyodai) took Best of Breed one day. They took BOS when not winning Best of Breed. Quinn also was awarded Owner Handled Group 2 all three days.
