  1. Nelson is also very much a dog man…and his dog is a music lover:

    • Rosana Martins says:

      It is true that Nelson has 3 boxers in Rio, where he has a garden. In Paris, he has Süss who also likes music.
      The dog in the documentary made about his life was called Danuza. Unfortunately, she is no longer in this world, but all his dogs are music lovers!

  2. Cats are amazing.
