By Sue Nielsen Before Rico, my long-haired Chihuahua, came into my life, I would take long vacations to see nature at its finest. I’ve been scuba diving in the Baja of Mexico with hammerhead sharks, kayaking amidst a family of Orca whales in British Columbia, and experienced Humpback whales singing and breaching in Hawaii.
