I'm a recovered attorney. She walked away from Wall Street and devoted herself to her passion. Always makes me happy. And that is dogs. Nacho is her loyal six-year-old sharpei mix. He was found in a parking lot down in Puerto Rico. I didn't intend to adopt them. He was one of our many foster dogs, and we just kind of fell in love Nacho is the unofficial mayor of Eisenstein Upper West side, doggy daycare and boarding facility camp canine, which also doubles as a temporary shelter for other rescued dogs from Puerto Rico. She says before hurricane Maria. There were close to half a million strays on the island since the hurricane that number has only gone up as families abandoned their their pets. They lost their own homes. They often couldn't keep their pets. But also, there's a different culture around pets down there than there is here. It's not a big spay and neuter culture as chair of animal lighthouse rescue Eisenstein recently brought four Puerto Rican pooches to the US, including Mario Cipollini. That's why I ended up taking him because I picked him up down in the shelter. And he just hung onto me by put them on me. And he clung as we have to take this guy back. I can't leave him here. Mario just loves to be cradled like a little baby. He was scared. He was drooling. Uncontrollably shaking. Uncontrollably. Now, you know, he walks on the leash he knows how to go to the bathroom outside in just a week. She says in spite.
