finding nemo

Whenever Michelle Kuo is having trouble “finding Nemo,” all she has to do is check outside. “He loves to forage for food,” laughs Michelle. “Anytime we go for a walk he’ll eat anything he finds. He loves tree bark.” Despite living in the suburbs, Nemo takes every opportunity to connect with nature. “Just the other day he took a big chunk out of a mushroom!” exclaims Michelle. Nemo’s “natural” diet (and unnatural vomiting) led to a bout of  gastroenteritis, so Michelle switched them to a chicken diet, until Ching Ching developed dermatitis as a result of a food allergy! Despite their troubles, both are absolute character. “Ching Ching has always been smart – he’s a little prince. But Nemo, on the other hand, is so naïve and innocent – he’ll do (or eat) anything.” When he’s not foraging for wildflowers (a.k.a. lunch) on the trails of Anza-Borrego State Park, Nemo is working towards being certified as a therapy dog. “In addition to being in tune with Nature, he’s very in tune with people who are sick, injured, or elderly – he has a gift for that sort of thing.”
