Cannon's Accomplishments

Shown only on a limited basis as a young dog, Cannon returned to the show ring as a mature male in the summer of 2007.  He very quickly earned his Canadian (CKC) Championship, and has made up for lost time, winning a Best in Show and CFC (Canine Federation of Canada) Championship as well, in October, 2007.  The same month, Cannon proved that he is not only beautiful, but  has an outstanding character, by earning his Temperament Test and Canine Good Citizen designations at the Akita Club of America Specialty in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky.  In June 2008, he was awarded his CFC Elite Championship.  Even more special than his wins and awards is the recognition and kind words of praise and admiration that Cannon has received from Akita breeders and fanciers from across North America and internationally.  We hope to work towards a Versatility Certificate and also do therapy work with Cannon, whose "official name" now reads:

BIS/CFC Elite Ch./CKC Ch. Kireisa's Phantom Image, T.T., C.G.C., C.G.N.
