Cesar Millan’s pit bull Daddy passed away Friday at the age of 16. Even if you aren’t a fan of Millan’s philosophy of dog training, you cannot deny Daddy’s impact on the hearts and minds of people around the country. He helped dispel the myth that these dogs are uncontrollable, untrustworthy, and unsafe. He was a big, crop-eared, rough looking pit bull who calmly entered millions of homes (whether physically or by way of Cesar’s popular TV show) and showed people what dogs are capable of. Thank you, Daddy, for making the world a better place for my boys to live in.
You can read more about Daddy at Cesar’s website.
And so, even though Dexter ate a chocolate cup cake this weekend and Ernie spent the night in the bathtub whining at whatever feral animal is making itself at home underneath my house, I’ll hug them both extra tight tonight.
