Nico is an affectionate, loving dog looking for a home. Nico has the unfailing ability to brighten anyone’s day. A sweet little ball of love, he can’t wait to find a family to cherish.
Nico came to us as a stray with bite wounds to his chest, and this resilient little pup has won over the hearts of our entire Veterinary Medicine department! Nico has fully recovered and loves spending time with people friends that he knows and trusts. While he can be a little shy at first, he warms up quickly. He gets along very well with other dogs and enjoys interacting with them.
Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (mix)
Breed: Shepherd mix

Social Diary Magazine's
(SDM's) Fundraiser for Japan's People & Animals Held at Cafe Milano
& Party for Alpha Phi Supporters with Extreme Pizza
In response to the tsunami and earthquakes that hit Japan in March of 2011, Social Diary Magazine's (SDM's) Margo Schwab, Scott Johnston and Kima decided to invite a few friends to donate while having a little fun too. A suggested $20 or more per person to support rescue and relief effort in Japan was the request. Guests were encouraged to give directly....and they did!
The Menu, and On the right, the inspiration for the event, Eiko Sunayama Williams.... Scott's mother who was born in Kyoto, Japan. A self-less inspiration to us.... and yes she looks like a Bond Girl!
Happily over $3,000 was raised. As a thank you back to the generous supporters, Social Diary Magazine hosted guests for a private supper at Cafe Milano in La Jolla.
The menu included fresh and fabulous Cafe Milano Bruschetta, Carpaccio and Del Bosco (Pear) Salad for starters. Entrees were Chicken Picata and a Penne Vodka Pasta.... delicious. Desserts were an Italian Gelato, and homemade Ricotta Cheesecake. Actually all the dishes are homemade. Wine poured included a crisply chilled Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, and Chianti Classico.
Cafe Milano Chef / Owner Pasquale with Sondra presided. And they were superb hosts!
Among the guests present were SNAP's Candy Schuman and Dee Snow, Connie and Ed Basterache, On Demand Workout Founder Bonnie Saldivar-Jones with her husband Peter Jones, Cristull Hasson, Doreen and Myron Schonbrun with their fascinating friend Dr. Maurizio Seracini, aka the "Da Vinci Detective." More there to support Japan and have a great time doing it were Sarah Nicole-Dolgen (Body Sculpt by Sarah in LJ) and Pablo Chavez, Shirley and Paul Schwab, Chris and Craig Andrews, Susan Ulevitch and SDM assistant Meg Blaich with her Alpha Phi sister Lindsay Reuben. That's the USD’s Eta Rho Chapter of Alpha Phi.
The Alpha Phi element became another, informal party.
