In Memoriam: Daddy the Pit Bull

Postby amazincc » February 20th, 2010, 10:04 pm

I just saw a comment on FB and went to check the official web site... it's true. :sad2:

http://www.cesarsway.com/news/daddy-memoriam

Cesar Millan, all his family and friends, his staff and volunteers, and dog lovers all around the world today will mourn the passing of one of the most loyal, trusting, well-balanced, and influential pit bull ambassadors the world has ever known. Daddy, Cesar’s longtime friend and partner in canine rehabilitation, died peacefully surrounded by family on Friday the 19th of February. He was sixteen years old.

He lived each day of those sixteen years happy and fulfilled as Cesar’s right-hand-“man,” helping to shape the behavior of entire generations of dogs by showing them the way to balance. He stood as champion for calm-submissive pit bulls everywhere, and was instrumental in helping to repair their image as violent, savage, uncontrollable beasts. He successfully battled cancer and weathered chemotherapy, and even got the opportunity to present at the 56th Annual Creative Arts Emmy Awards!

His name is now added to that honorable roster of dogs gone by whose influence is still felt today, and which includes some of Cesar’s beloved childhood heroes: "Rin-Tin-Tin." "Lassie." … "Daddy."

He has been immortalized by Dog Whisperer fans in all mediums, from painting, to photographs, to charcoal drawings and papier-mâché sculpture. And, of course, he lives on in his work, reflected in the balance and calm-submission of his protégé Junior, the countless animals to whom he was a positive role model, and in the hearts and minds of everyone who knew him as a calm, sweet, and mellow example of a widely misunderstood breed.

In Loving Memory.


Say what you will about the man - I always adored Daddy. :heartbeat:

RIP you big Hunk O' Love... may Junior continue your work, and try to fill those big paws of yours.

Daddy was truly an awesome dog (whatever the heck Cesar Milan is!), thats for sure :(

Daddy has done amazing things for the image and perception of the "Pit Bull" breed group n the public's eye, for that I thank him.

RIP Daddy.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

I got an e-mail about Daddy yesterday, and he really was a great publicity ambassador for the breed, even with his balls...RIP Daddy
