his childhood friend, approached him with the proposal to
move to the United States, he welcomed it with deep gratitude.
His first years were devoted towards rescuing stray and abused
dogs from extreme situations, and finding loving, caring homes
for them. All the while he knew that there is something dogs
need which only dogs can give to themselves.

and had many cats and one dog. When her dog passed away, she
had painful realizations during her mourning ceremonies. She

at the dog areas and occassional trips to the beaches.
Linda uses her strong political influence and mortgage-free
