Going for walks, getting treats, being left alone by her brother, sleeping under our bed

People that she doesn't know trying to pet her before she gets to sniff them; when her brother Theo won't leave her alone, getting her nails clipped

Favorite Toy:
A pink bunny called Bun Bun that she got from her friend Riley

Favorite Food:
Anything human. Thinks dog food is beneath her.

Favorite Walk:
Right next door to get treats from her uncle; going to see her friend Sinatra; to the Italian restaurant down the street to get meatballs

Best Tricks:
Making people think that she can still see.

Arrival Story:
My husband and I fell in love with the Akita breed after we adopted our first Akita few months before. We wanted another one to make our family complete. She was our first internet purchase.

Xena went blind during the summer of 2008, and she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and went through a course of radiation in January and February of 2009. She did wonderfully and although her sight did not come back, the radiation shrank the tumor and she was happy and pain-free for a few years. As she started getting older the health problems increased (seizures, hypothyroidism, her back legs giving out, loss of appetite, etc.) and she had no quality of life. We sent her to the Rainbow Bridge on December 4, 2012.
