Same Breed, Same Day

Cesar Millan's much-loved and gentle Pit Bull, Daddy, has gone to the big kennel in the sky. He was sixteen years old.
Like so many Pit Bulls, Daddy was a dog acquired in haste by a young person -- this time the rapper Redman.
When Daddy was four months old, Redman decided the dog was more than he could handle, and he took it to Cesar Millan who ended up keeping the dog.
Daddy was raised it in a calm, assertive manner (I had to say it) in a pack of more than 30 other dogs of every size, shape and demeanor.
In his 16 years on earth, Daddy showed what is possible with a Pit Bull in the right hands.
Sadly, too many Pit Bulls end up in the wrong hands.
Every day of the week, more than 2,400 Pit Bulls are euthanized in America because -- like Daddy -- they were acquired in haste, and unlike Daddy, they were unable to find their "Cesar Millan."
