MBIS/MBISS CH. Nakodo's Reign of Glory, AOM, CGC



When Echo was a puppy I was going to place her at 9 weeks old because I wanted to keep her litter brother. When it came time to make my final decision I couldn't let her go. Her brother did finish easy, but we have no regrets in our choice to keep Echo as part of our show team. Echo finished with ease from the puppy class then sat home while I was campaigning her half sister Blue. When Echo was 17 months old we entered her in a few shows to get her some ring experience before the 2007 Akita Nationals. Her first weekend she won BOB both days. The following weekend she won 2 supported entries and her first Best in Specialty win along with a Group 2 under Breeder Judge Rita Biddle. She went on to the 2007 Nationals to receive an AOM at 17 months of age. We showed her the remaining part of 2007 and she was ranked a top ten Akita all this before the age of 2.
At the end of May 2009 we began showing Echo full time, she quickly moved up the rankings and finished as the Number 1 Bitch in the country and the Number 3 Akita (all breed). In 2010 at 4 years old Echo had matured into a
beautiful bitch and began her "Reign of Glory" becoming America's Number one Akita All Systems. In 2010 alone Echo had collected 10 Best in Shows, 4 Best in Specialty Shows (including winning BOB at the 2010 Akita Club of America National) 44 Group Firsts, totaling 100 placements in the working group for 2010. This accomplishment makes Echo one of the top Akita bitches in the history of our breed.
We are very thankful to all of Echo’s friends and supporters especially Ryan Dillman for showing Echo in 2007 and for pushing me to show her in 2010 and Paul Levesque for his expert handling not just with Echo but all my dogs.

Also a big thank you to Dr. Rebecca Kestle for awarding Echo Best of Breed at the 2010 ACA National in Gettysburg PA a win we will never forget. What more can we say, but Thanks for the memories Echo, and for being such a wonderful ambassador for our breed.
