His father was a Polynesian stick / fire dancer and the family was involved in church.

Learn what not only brought him through the awkward years, but also became his life's passion, assisting those in need, along with their furry kids.

If you've ever felt lonely, isolated or misunderstood - you'll instantly connect with this week's wonderful guest. When he said dogs help us to connect with what's on the other end of the leash, I instantly knew he meant that we connect with others through the adoration of our pets.

Pokini is one of 4 co founders of RuffHaven.org - a crisis shelter to assist dire emergency situations so families don't lose their pets.

A short documentary that is a must view: Kimo and Jazz, a mutual rescue film "Jazz helped me to find my own humanity."
