Hello and Welcome to my pages on the internet

     It was in 1962 that I saw my first pair of Akitas.  They were in a shopping center being socialized by their owners.  They were quite young. 

The breed was in its infancy in the USA at the time and I never saw another Akita anywhere until two years later.  There was an advert in the paper for an Akita litter, the Sire and Dam of the litter just happened to be the pair I saw as youngsters two years earlier. 

I bought a male from that litter and from that very moment, my heart fused with the Akita.  I was "hooked".

     I established my kennel and name, Kofuku-No Akitas, in 1964 and have been a devoted student and friend of the Akita ever since. I have always, and will continue to do all I can to help and protect this wonderful breed.

   CH Holly moving out with her usual flare and style!

HRH Prince Michael Of Kent, graced the breed ring at Crufts and met an Akita and a pair of American enthusiasts for the first time.  Whoever would have guessed that a “Royal Command Performance” would be on the cards for us!

Pictured with my dearest friend and mentor Liz Harrell. The reverse of this picture has the following words written;-


I cherished our life-long friendship and commitment to the Akita Dog.  Our shared memories of fun, joy and sorrows are too numerous to count, but by the thousands bound us together.


Goodbye, dear friend,
