Hey Deb,
Just an update on how Piper is doing. Piper showed this weekend and earned her 16th UDX leg, with scores of 190 in both Open and Utility and earned another 12 Obedience Master points. She needs 14 more points to complete her Master title. We will be showing again in a few weeks. I will let you know how it goes.

Someday I hope to have big brags like others here. But for now, we have this! (Gotta start somewhere).

Natalia Dougherty with Carla Boyd and Deborah Karfs.
Yesterday GCH Onyx earned her CA title and had the greatest time doing so! Her first run was 1 minute and 5 seconds! Thank you Chris Karfs for taping it! My daughter Brittany and I went to NJ for the weekend and had a great time talking with akkita peeps Deb and Chris Karfs and Carla Boyd and seeing Lolo, Pawlee and Miss Trible!! Sissy D.



Deborah Karfs with Natalia Dougherty.


Had a wonderful time with Natalia Dougherty this weekend trying some lure coursing. Sissy and Brittany, thanks for coming all the way to Jersey. Here is a picture of us with our fabulous pups, Onyx and Lolo, on Saturday morning after a run. Onyx was a rockstar and titled and Lolo had a ball, managing to even get a Q. Will certainly be doing more lure coursing. Big thank you to the West Coasters for inspiring us. 




a huge CONGRATULATIONS are in order to Envy Rose and her owner Kathy Henderson on earning their last QQ needed on May 1, 2016 to become the very first Akita to earn the RAE2 title (Rally Advanced Excellent times 2)!
