Bellingham couple raise llamas for show, therapy and kisses
The Bellingham Herald
"Would you like to meet a llama?" That's the question Niki Kuklenski loves to ask when she encourages people to experience one up close. Kuklenski, 41, a Western Washington University graduate and substitute teacher in Mount Baker School District, has spent a lifetime training and breeding llamas. She is rated one of the nation's experts in all aspects, including her work with Delta Society Therapy Llamas. She and her husband, Jeff, operate a llama farm, JNK Llamas, near Bellingham.
