2017 AKC Meet The Breed - New York City

Published on March 12, 2017 by Diane Lynch

The 2017 AKC Meet and Compete, Meet the Breeds event was a little extra special this year for those who manned the booth with the Second Place win for the Working Group for Best Booth!

ACA members Frank and Linda Ingemi with the effervescent Monstress brought together another great group to see us to the finish! As always a crowd pleaser with her wiggle dance - oh Monstress - how many laps did you sit in at the event??? Veteran Team MTB member Britt LaCroix,her right hand man, Jason Ferrar and their boy wonderful Orien brought down the house. Orien is always a show stopper with the big beautiful head and the ever wagging tail! Members Matt and Joann Dimon of Big East Akita Rescue share not only their vast knowledge of Akitas but their sweet heart Japanese Akita Amaya. Amaya never ran out of kisses to share! Also thanks to Jerid Ahrens and Yumi MacDonald for their help!

Thanks to all our great Akitas who represented our breed with pride and a sense of humor; to their outstanding, knowledgeable handlers and to our booth organizer Diane Lynch.

Hope to see you all next year!
