I live in Wisconsin and am retired. I manage to scrape up enough energy to train and show my Keeshonden, an arctic breed of dog that originated in Holland a few hundred years ago. My husband is Joe. Our dogs are Green and Plum, 8 year old littermates, and their little brother Seal, who is 13 months younger. Green is a GRAND Champion in the U.S., and is an American and Canadian Champion, Plum completed her GRAND Championship in early April of 2016 and is an American Champion as well. Seal is in training to be an Obedience and Agility star and earned his Rally Novice, Beginners Novice and Canine Good Citizen titles in just 2 1/2 months near the end of 2014. For the calendar year of 2014 he was the #9 Keeshond in Rally out of the 59 Kees who qualified in the U.S.!! This year, 2015, he earned his Am. Companion Dog, or C.D. title and was the #10 Kees in the U.S. for the year! The dogs provide endless love and laughter, as well as cuddles. Joe suffered a stroke in May of 2011, and I swear the dogs help him keep active. I can't imagine life without them. All 4 of them, counting Joe! My avatar is a shot of me with Tigger, my first Keeshond........the one that began my life. My girl Plum just completed her GRAND Championship on April 3, 2016, so now the littermates are BOTH GRAND Champions!!
