I'm Leo, a Dutch expat living in Denmark.
When I looked into the eyes of a Hovawart puppy almost a decade ago, the left-over of the litter because "it" was not show-material, I couldn't in my wildest imagination grasp the change he would bring into my life. My suit-and-tie are long since exchanged for all-weather gear. The frequent-flyer card lost its mileage and a long line of dog books replaced the Michelin guide.
That puppy, we named him Kenzo, sadly left this world in December 2015 only 8 years old, like we also lost Viva before him. But even in the abyss of grief there can be new beginnings. Today I have Tilde at my side and together we live life as Kenzo taught us.
We chase sunsets, play on the beaches, meet with friends. We hike the dunes, the wide and open heath fields, the forests and the hills of the rugged and relentless Danish West-coast. Always close, keeping each other safe, living in the moment, and honoring Kenzo.
