Like many women, Darlene often enjoyed a gossip with her nail technician while getting a manicure. So, when the conversation turned to the manicurist’s dog, Darlene thought nothing of asking to see a photo. But, confronted with an image of a starving pup, she knew she had to do something.
California native Darlene had always been an animal lover. She also loved getting her nails done, and regularly visited her local technician in Marina del Rey. The retired interior designer always went to the same manicurist, and she got on well with the woman who fixed her nails.
