I have to be quick, Mr. Stan doesn't like it when I get on his computer, and he's just in the next room and will be calling for me soon. But Ms.Teri told me she was helping Mr. Stan make a website and I just wanted to say "Hi" and welcome to Hemert Kooikers. I love living with Mr. Stan and Ms. Judi, they treat me well and I get to eat real meat for my meals and not that dried stuff some humans buy at the store. It's yummy!!!
Mr. Stan just called me, so I better go see what he wants, I hope he has a yummy treat for me.
Mr Stan says I weird because my wiskers on one side of my nose are white and the other side they are black. Do any of my relatives have this? If so I won’t feel so weird
Hey mom, will I ever catch on of these pests? I chase and chase and zero. Being Dutch I won’t give up because we are hard headed and I will win. The day I do you will hear me howl all the way to your house. Can’t wait until June when I can see you and my birth mom. Huck
Going for a walk...
Hey mom, Mr Stan told me about an interview for something called the KCUSA. Is that a big deal? Is it as big as liver treats that my new mom makes for me. Oh my are they to kill for. They brought me to my first puppy training last nite. They were told I did very good but I wanted to because I got more treats last nite than ever before.
They other day Mr. Stan took me to get the mail and a BIG black lab came over and scared me to death. I took off for home. Mr Stan many times walk along not paying to much attention to me because he says I always have my nose to the ground and doesn’t watch every time I stop and he didn’t notice that Big dog. He told me that when he turned around I was half way home running for all my worth. I didn’t want to be dessert for that dog. Mr. Stan went ahead and got the mail and wouldn’t you know it that that dog followed him home but Mr. Stan tied him up to a tree and I told him for 20 minutes what I thought of him. They then brought me into the house but I could still see that dog and continued to let him know. Mr. Stan said that she just wanted to make a new friend.
Today while out for our walk he again went and got the mail and I went along but I didn’t like the idea but in past walk I had visited with a Golden Retriever, Scotch, and I like her a lot. As I walked past the labs driveway I looked and looked but no BIG black lab and when we got to Scotch’s house I liked the smell in the yard and had good memories.
Ops here comes Mr. Stan, I don’t know why he is coming because the dog show is on TV.
You won’t believe this but Mr. Stan’s computer hasn’t worked for over a month. Even I could have fixed it but you know how it is having a Dutchman in charge of things and a Dutch dog trying to explain things. It was just best or me to keep quiet.
First of all thanks for the Christmas package. They were overwhelmed by all the kookier stuff. Is stuff a good work to use. Any way when Ms. Judi was trying to open the package with the treats in it the bottom split open a little bit and a treat fell out and I was all over it before she could say a think. Boy that was good. The calendar with all the picture gives me an idea of what I should grow up to be.
I’m almost done with my vet visits, I have only one to get my rabies shoots. I like Dr. Bret a lot better now even though he thinks he has to take my temp every time I’m there. The last time he gave Mr. Stan a name of a lady that gives puppy classes and we are to go to a meet and greet class a couple time before the classes start on Feb. 3. I forgot how many classes there will be. She also has a therapy dog so she is going to help me get a cert. By the way I weigh 14.4 pounds and they say that I am well proportioned. Last week we had 8 inches of snow and it got cold. Night b before last it was -21F and I had a hard time keeping all my feet on the ground but I found out if I run fast it doesn’t bother me so much. When Mr Stan takes me for walks he laughs a lot. Especialy when I am bounding through the snow and stick my head into a clump of grass that is covered with snow.
Everyone that comes here is TOTALLY surprised with one of my tricks. I guess it’s no big deal. When I need to go outside to do my business I ring a set of bells hanging by the back door. Sometime it’s only 15 minutes apart and I usually need to do the other business. I’m going to tell you something but you have to promise to keep it a secret. Once in a while I ring the bell so I can go outside and play in the snow. Remember that’s between us.
Mr. Stan has fashioned a toy. He attached a bungie cord to the ceiling and tied a toy to it about 6 inches above my head. I jump up and grab it with my mouth, pull it down to the ground and try to chew the bungie cord off so I can play with the toy without having to hold it down.
OH OH Mr.. Stan just walking in and caught me on his computer but he says it’s OK being Christmas. He wants to says something to you.
Ann and Jac Merry Christmas to the both of you. We might have told you this in the past but Huck was our Christmas present to each other and we have been so blessed having him in our life.

Hey mom, I meet Dr. Brad yesterday and I didn't like him at all. He took my temp. and I yipped, howled and may such a loud cry I think it was heard into the next county. I felt so violated and I let everyone know. After that he let me kiss him all over the face and he told me he was sorry but that had to be done and I kinda forgave him but we will see. He noticed that I was scratching a lot and asked me to ask you if any of my litter mates had the same condition. Other than that Dr. Brad said all was well. I gave him my microchip info. He wants to see me again in 4 weeks to continue my puppy shots. I got mom (the new one) up this morning at 4;30 and did both business but I was bad I did #2 business again in the house within an hour. Mom I mean the new mom wasn't upset at all. I think it was because she was making a lemon pie. We brought that lemon pie to Grandma Van Hemert's house this afternoon and I made friends of them I of course was on my best behavior and I didn't have an accident
must go, you know why
Hey Mom, Why do I scratch myself so much here. My skin just itches all the time. I/m going to see my new doc. tomorrow what should I tell him about this?
I was kinda lazy this morning maybe because I got up so early. Now I sometimes tear around the house and they laugh at me. You don't think they are making fun of me do you?
I've been good haven't had to spend time in "THE" box. When Mr. Stan gets home we sure play hard but he doesn't like that I like to play with my mouth. He's gives me little slaps with a finger when I bite him. I think I'm catching on. He told me that his boss was coming over Sunday afternoon and they are having apple crisp. Is that as good as Jaarsma stuff? His boss has twin boys maybe 18 months old, maybe that is why he doesn/t want to play with my mouth.
Last night I had a wonder dream. It was about you and Jac. Will I always remember you? I hope so. That was a fun part of my life
Oh Oh I hear Mr. Stan coming.
Bye and I love you.
Hey mom. I slept last from 9 to 5 and I so proud of myself. Their grandson Blaize came over today and I overheard him say I was so smart. That made me feel so good. I played hard today with my new mom and Mr. Stan came home and we played so hard. Mom took me outside around 3. She takes me outside about every hour and a half. She was getting ready to take me outside at 4:30 but I beat her to it and did my number 1 business on the carpet. They took me right outside but I was empty and when they brought me back in the house I now know what they are talking about. "THE" box wasn't fun. I had to stay in there for a hour and a half and when they took me outside I did my business right away and I didn't have to back in "THE" box. I'm starting to understand that maybe humans can't be fooled so easy. I have an appointment with their vet on Friday afternoon. I promise I will be good and make them proud. Something else I overheard today while my new mom was making the appointment. Mom had to explain what a Kooiker was and they looked it up on google while they were talking and I think they are anxious to see one. Are we that unusual? I felt like I was just normal at your house but people seem to be a little uneducated here I must go how. I think Mr. Stan is coming and I don't want him to know that I'm using his computer.
PS sometimes my paws hit the wrong letter
Hey mom. I arrived safely to my new home and did #1 business outside. Boy it is really easy to please humans. They said I had to stay in my kennel all the way home but quess what!! They took me out within 5 miles. You taught we well on how to get my way.
My name is Huck and I am a Kooikerhondje. I have fun sneaking onto Mr. Stan's computer and writing letters. Sometimes my paws hit the wrong letters, so please be understanding if something doesn't look quite right.
