hey candace, good to hear from you...... our girl Kiko is about to turn twelve and she's doing well, a little slower but she hasn't lost any of her sweetness..... unfortunately, she lost her everything in july, we had to put Kendo down. He was almost 13 and had fought displacia for over a year ...... here's a link so you can read about it, sounds like you may have to face the same situation we did..... most of all, enjoy your time together! take care and stay in touch!
I don't know if you remember me... the last time I was in Playa was 2006 and I was on the forums a lot back then. I live in San Diego and have an Akita. I was just wonderig how your Akita's were doing?? My boy is now 13. He is still doing well for that age but is slowing down pretty fast. He is still healthy but he is slow to get up and his walks are shorter but take longer. Since he is too old to breed I am wishing I could clone him since he has such a great temperment and has been so healthy for so long. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and ask about your pups! Take it easy! - Candace
