AKC National Championship, presented by Royal Canin is now just around the corner. Elea Warf and I have started getting stuff together for the Meet the Breeds booth.

Last year we had such a great turn out of our ACA breeders and their beautiful Akitas, I hope that those of you that will be in Orlando showing will do the same this year!! Last year we won best in group! Very exciting!!

This will be the last year I will do this event for the Akita Club of America. Since I am kicking 70 in the arse, I feel it is time for the younger folks to take over. They have more stamina than I do!🤣

It has been such a joy for me doing this event year after year with my Kibbi. She is like her Mom….to old to do it any longer.
Elea WarfJennifer Aasa,and Melinda Harbaugh will be taking over, with Elea as the Meet the Breeds AKC liason.

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that has supported this effort over the years from working the booth, helping set up on Friday’s, as MTB is so important for our breed and the public. Education, education, education!!

I know that everyone will do all they can to support Elea and the new team Akita!!
