Akita dogs have become a passion of mine
and I absolutely love the breed. By nature, I don't understand dogs
and that is surely attributable to the fact that I'm afraid of dogs.
I know, sounds nutty, but I am. Hank, my first akita, helped me get
over that fear. We spent almost the entire first two years of his
life in obedience; bonding. I'm also fortunate in that I had a great
breeder who helped me and spent countless hours talking with me about
akitas and dogs in general.
My love affair with Akitas started in December
of 1987 when I brought Hank home. That is over fourteen years that
I have spent with an akita in my life. Today, I'm still struggling
to fully understand the nature of dogs and the two akitas who currently
live with me, Mikki and Angel. Sherry, of Sherob Akitas, is still
hanging in there with me too. She, along with other members of the
Lone Star Akita Club, give of their time and tolerate my qustions
as a pet owner. I would also like to thank Jeanette, of TR Akitas
for all her help and time when I am having a crisis!
This site is dedicated to Hank's memory
and was built to try to assist in collecting information on Akitas
and dogs in general, and is targeted at the pet owner or those who
aren't born understanding dogs. Not all akita owners have the resources
I do with several breeders at my disposal. My intention with this
website is to make it easier for those of us, who just love our dogs
and want to provide a happy, safe and harmonious environment. In honor
of the pet akita, I feature different dogs on the home page. Check
back soon, there will be another wonderful pet listed here.
