I am happy to run for a second term as Treasurer of KCUSA. My family’s Kooikerhondje adventure began in 2001 when my wife Cathy and young daughters were looking for a family pet. They came upon the breed in some books and we all liked the look and size of the Kooiker and thought having a unique breed would be fun. Little did we know just how unique this breed was in the USA at the time! We imported Sydney on our own from Denmark and he is now one of the senior members of this exclusive group at age 14. His energy, loyalty and intelligence have made him a joy (and a handful!) to care for all these years – not to mention a wonderful companion. As for him, he would probably say that other than a few misadventures he raised a pretty good family….
