An Addition to the Family

As I’ve mentioned before, Martin had his heart set on owning a dog once more once we moved to the country. The original plan was to sign up for a puppy. However, a breeder contacted us saying that she had had a three-year old Labrador returned to her, because the owners were no longer able to keep it, and were we interested?
Naturally, Martin was excited, and so we went to view the dog. Signs were good, and thus we became the owners of the dog last week. So far, despite my rationalism, I find myself reluctantly becoming fond of the beast. Martin is, of course, besotted. The dog is, of course, just a dog. But when it gazes up at you with those big brown eyes… then there’s obviously some deep genetic thing going on between humans and dogs about which I am powerless to protest.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Kai van de Beckenkamp; offspring of Just Brown van ‘t Meijelicht (father) and Fresh Fields Makaya (mother)…







About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
