Cesar Millan’s dog Daddy passes away

Posted in Uncategorized on February 22nd, 2010 by katie – 2 Comments

I have enjoyed watching Cesar Millan work with Daddy at his side on The Dog Whisperer for several years. Daddy, a stocky red pit bull, was a wonderful role model for other dogs of all breeds. His tail was always wagging while he helped Cesar create a calm, submissive atmosphere while dealing with troubled dogs. As a pit bull, he made great strides for the reputation of the breed.

Daddy succumbed to his battle with cancer on Feb. 19, 2010 at the age of 16.

Over the past week, it’s snowed about 45 inches here in Ellicott City, MD. Everything shut down for a whole week and people are still digging out their cars and roads. Here are some fun photos of my pets enjoying the snow!

report was put together recently that contains anti-animal abuse recommendations for Baltimore City. Following the incident with Phoenix, a dog that was doused with gasoline and set on fire in West  Baltimore last spring, a task force was put together to create these recommendations which include stricter laws and punishments along with a plan for creating stronger ties between law enforcement offices, and increasing and public awareness.  It also includes plans to beef up the budget and services available at BARCS, which would be great!
