Tuesday Trivia

Good Tuesday Morning!

So today's trivia comes by way of The National Dog Show which aired on Thanksgiving Day.  I love watching the dog show and seeing all of the fabulous breeds.  There are some truly gorgeous dogs out there.

Question:  Who introduced the first Akita to America in 1937?

Answer: Helen Keller

Pretty cool, huh. 

Have a great day!


  1. Serena, I didn't know Helen Keller introduced Akitas. They're one of my fave breeds. And, I featured two of them in STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME. They were/are Seneca's beloved pets.

  2. I know, wasn't that something, Savanna. With everything that's known about Helen Keller, I can honestly say that was something I'd never heard before. :)

    Cool that they are featured in your story! Akita's are very beautiful dogs...

  3. One thing that appeals to me about them are their adorable bear-like faces.
