President's Message

What a wonderful week we had in Denver! So many wonderful Akitas to admire and appreciate. I sure hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did. Big congratulations to all the winners, WELL DONE!!!

I would like to extend my gratitude to several folks that made it all happen: Laurie White, for all the work she does as Show Chair. Many of us attend the Nationals each year, not giving much thought of just how much work pours into putting on this type of venue... It surely was an eye opening experience for me. READ MORE>>
