I forget to mention in my earlier post that my friend Randi had to put her beloved dog, Tiga, to sleep this past weekend:If any of you know anything about Akita's, then you know how it takes a certain type of person to own an Akita. They are beautiful dogs however, can be dog and/or people agressive. I have owned two Akita's and my first was a male and he was/is dog aggressive. I now own a female named Hana, and she is the sweetest, gentlest Akita I've ever met in my life.
Tiga, Randi's dog, bit Randi's friend this past weekend. This was the third time Tiga had bitten someone and Randi told me that if your dog bites a person more than twice in the state of Texas, the owner of the dog can serve jail time. She had to make a very difficult decision and decided to put him to sleep. I feel so very sorry for Randi because she is one of the sweetest, most genuine girls I have ever known. I know she loved her Tiga so very much (I know how much I love my Hana).
Randi, I am so sorry this has happened to you. I love you very much and everything will turn out just fine. Please don't be sad. Tiga's in a good place and I know he misses you!
