POMEmag chatted with some of the roughest, toughest dudes around and asked them to talk about their animal friends. Here are some cute little buddies and the macho dudes who love them.
“Cute enough to eat or too cute to eat? I go back and forth on it all day long. Haha, I’m just kidding, I love this little guy! We’re getting matching tattoos next week.”

“Well I’m a certified yoga instructor, part time Spirit Cycle Coach, and a lifter by lifestyle. I try to keep Baby Hey… I mean, Herman… fit but that boy is notttttt into exercise.”
Zeke: “In the war, I was known for my efficiency. In the ring, I was known for my brutality. In the circus, for my strength, but it was an unknown part of me that lead me here. Taka’s mother was sold off for ivory while Taka was still very young. Drunk one night, I stumbled and fell next to her cell. The waxing moonlight reflected in her sad eyes. I knew then that nature must not be caged. I freed her and myself.
Now, we wander the straits of Sri Lanka in search of our better selves. As the days pass by, my bones get brittle and I weaken while Taka grows bigger. As my hairs grey, I am finally learning not just how to love, but how to be loved.”
