Daddy, the Pit Bull

Crittersister Journal is a blog where one can read about our furry friends and how much they are loved. 

This journal entry is on a sadder note about Daddy, Cesar Millan's pit bull. He passed on Friday, February 19, 2010.

He was so cute and attentive on the 'Dog Whisperer's' episodes and displayed the calm and submissive state so elegantly to other canines.

He was a master and those kind of dogs only come along once in a while.

"I've always seen Daddy as my teacher of life. He brought my family and me so much joy over the years. Personally, he represented what my grandfather taught me, never work against Mother Nature. He will be greatly missed, but his spirit lives on," Cesar Millan said in a statement.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the Millan family and how blessed they were to have a dog like Daddy.

Rainbow Bridge
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...
