KKBN Pet of The Week(5.26.15)

This is Leon, our 2 year old Belgian Malinois – Tervuren. My family adopted Leon from Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. Before his adoption, Leon was being trained as a military working dog. Leon was put up for adoption by the Department of Defense because he would overheat in extreme humidity conditions, making him a liability to the government, and his future missions. We actually drove to Texas to pick him up! Because he was in the military for a time, he has a tattoo in his left ear that says W024. That was his ID number. Leon is a very hyperactive dog. Adjusting to civilian life was steady for him as he discovered the television (he would bark at it for the first few weeks), windshield wipers (he would bark at them too) and house rules. He loves to chew on things and chase any kind of bouncing ball. His favorite toys are his rubber KONG and tennis balls. When he sees his toys he starts salivating! He’s so easy to please. When you look at him he emanates affection and love no matter what your mood is. He is very therapeutic to have a round on those days when you feel down and out of sorts. We all love Leon! After having three dogs that have blessed my family, he was a welcomed addition to the family that keeps us on our toes.

KKBN Hard Working Man(5.20.15)


Kele LaNier

I would like to nominate my husband Kele. He is an amazing man, husband, friend and uncle.He works many hours, sometimes 12 hour days, at Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) as the swing shift stacker operator, and than comes home and works on our home remodel and takes care of our 33 animal small ranch. He’s kind, patient and loving to anyone he meets and will always put others first. I couldn’t have asked for a better man to spend the rest of my life with.

KKBN Makes A Frog Jump Spa Visit

Along with sending our congrats to Riley Kitchell, of Angels Camp, for his second big Frog Jump win (click here for details) this past weekend, thank you, Frogmeister Dave Gallagher, for the hospitality and tour of the Frog Spa tucked away under the Calaveras County Fair stage. We got some Frog 101 learning there, just ahead of the Frog Jump finals Sunday, along with assurances these amphibians won’t be turning up on any menus, anywhere, not by a long shot.
