How it all Began

A Tail of Two Pit Bulls.
The year was 1998. I was living a decadent and careless lifestyle in West Hollywood, California and my primary concerns were with material things, partying and keeping up appearances. Truth be told I was in a very dark place and at a point in my life where there was either going to be a catalyst for change to help me turn things around, or I was going to spiral out of control. Looking back on it now, my addiction and reckless lifestyle had already started me down a path of self-destruction – I just refused to acknowledge it.
It was a mid-Friday afternoon, and I was at work in sunny Santa Monica when I received a voice message from my friend Moneypenny. Yep, that was her last name, but I just called her “Money” for short. Her message rambled on for a few moments and it wasn’t anything that captured my attention until shortly before she hung up. I remember her saying, “you have to call me back. I want to tell you about these two little abandoned puppies hanging out near my work.” At the time I thought it odd. Money was the type of person that stray animals always seemed to gravitate to, and she’d always take them in. Why was she calling me and not helping these pups?
