Honor was the most gregarious and sassy AKK I had ever met. She never did anything half way, and was incredibly bold and fearless. She was our first AKK, and we had her spayed at an appropriate age as we hadn’t intended on showing her. She instantly proved her ability to be a great sports dog, and was the first Alaskan Klee Kai to earn a rally title. She then went on to earn rally titles in two venues, with some great scores including an all time high of 200 in APDT rally.
Along the way, we kept running into UKC judges who were exhibiting, and they shared their opinion that she was a very nice AKK. Once UKC offered the Licensed Altered program, we jumped at the chance to show her. She got her ALCH in five shows, including an Altered Northern Group 1 and four Best of Breeds. Honor went on to dominate the altered champion class, winning it with competition in 8 of the 9 showings. At the UKC Gateway Nationals in October 2011, Honor received her last Grand leg and is not only the first Alaskan Klee Kai Altered Grand Champion, but the first for UKC as well!
Honor trained and competed in agility, rally, obedience, weight pull, and canine freestyle. She really was the versatile dog that I always dreamed of! Unfortunately, cancer viciously interrupted her life at the young age of 7.5, and she left me and this world far too soon. She is incredibly missed, and always and forever loved.
