About the Author

REUBEN E. STREICH grew up on a dairy farm in rural Minnesota. His grandfathers and great-grandfathers were also dairy farmers. At the age of 21, Reuben began his own farm with 6 dairy cows he milked by hand. Eighty acres of oats, corn and hay were farmed for feed for the cattle. Reuben farmed for over 60 years, and animals on the farm included Holstein dairy cattle, horses, pigs, chickens, and always dogs and cats. Reuben is currently "Retirement Farming" 40 acres of corn, oats and hay. In addition, he rents out the pasture for heifers and steer young stock to graze. When not taking care of the farm and machinery, Reuben enjoys fishing, puzzles and family.

Mr. Kaboodelboo came about when Reuben and Joan's five children were young, he would tell them stories - something different each night. These short stories revolved around the farmer character
Mr. Kaboodelboo and his Big Fat Dog. Together they helped neighbors, handled machinery problems, and rebuilt buildings blown down in storms. Remembering his childhood, the stories always involved taking care of animals and assisting neighbors. Reuben hopes the stories will continue to be an encouragement for children to help others, and reflect the two greatest commandments - to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself.

Reuben and Joan Streich are blessed with five children and eight grandchildren.
