Top Twenty Akita 1997, 1998 & 1999
Multiple Group Winner and Group Placer

"Xena" was an AWESOME akita and my biggest mistake.  The mistake was selling her at 11 months of age.  I was lucky enough to get her back at four years of age and place into into the most loving home with the Wirsbinski family.  Sadly she only had one litter.

"ACA" won 3rd place in the 9-12 puppy class at the 1999 Akita National.  Kim feel in love with him at the national so I decided to let him live with Kim and Mark in South Carolina.  He won Winners Dog at the 2000 Florida Specialty and went on to win his majors easily and was completely owner handled to his championship.  "ACA" will not be available at stud, because he has moderate hip dysplasia in his left hip only, which is very sad because he is one AWESOME Akita and would have made a wonderful compliment to any breeding program.

Sire: BIS Ch Moonlight's Duke of Passion
Dam: Ch Timbersky's Moonlight Desire
Co-bred with: n/a
Owner: Ronnie Brienes

Finished easily strictly from Bred-By Class
Group Placer from the Classes
Sire of Champions

Indi was OFA prelim Good at 7 months and 13 months.
He was OFA'd at 26 months old and received a
mildly dysplasic rating.  This is the reason I think
all dogs should not be bred until two years of age.
Preliminary health ratings can change, Indi's proof.  He now resides with the Brienes family and is a highly spoilt and loved companion.


 

Ch Moonlight's Que

OFA Good, Eyes Clear
Sire: Ch NorthStar's Coors Silver Bullet ROM
Dam: Ch NorthStar's Crime of Passion ROM
Co-bred with: n/a
Owners: Todd Cancilla & Chris Stanley

Que is an exciting bitch that I finished from the Open class.
The judges loved her and placed first or second every time
except once (a fourth) and I think the seconds were
because she's a white.  Judges are seeing more whites now.  Unfortunately, she only had one litter and was never able to conceive after that.  She was spayed in 1999.
