But that passion became even greater when she introduced her dad in 2008 to the golden retriever Niinmah. “This dog changed everything in my life, it was my soul mate relationship. I died at just 5 years old, from a disease in the womb, and I almost died together. After that, animals became more important to me,” he recalled, Farah.
