BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Monday's Memory-Cesar and Daddy

Cesar Millan

Atlanta Home Show
~March, 2006

Hubby and I arrived at the Atlanta Civic Center 4 hours before Cesar's performance, and were the first ones to purchase tickets. The place was empty as we left for what should have been a quick lunch. When we returned the place was packed and we lost our front row seats. Dog-gone it!

Cesar was warm, friendly, funny, and gracious. He went on stage, wagged his "tail" and then lifted his leg on the artificial tree. After he spoke, he signed autographs for an hour, until his next performance. We were almost to the signing table when it was time for him to take the stage again. He promised to continue signing autographs after the second appearance. We had a 2 hour drive ahead of us, and needed to get home to the dogs. I was very disappointed, but a very nice lady in front of me in line, offered to take the photo I had brought and have Cesar sign it, and then mail it to me.

Aren't "Doggie People" just the best?

(This was BB-Before Buddy)


RIP, Daddy

Too bad you missed out on front row seats, and then missed out on the signing. But what a very kind woman to do that with your picture. Humans that love and respect animals are the kindest, best humans around!

Very nice tribute to Daddy. Very sad to hear of his passing.

I didn't like it, I LOVED IT!!!

What a wonderful relationship they had! My heart goes out to the Milan family.

Thanks for sharing this!

Mango said...

I bet I would listen to that Ceasar guy much better than Momma. i can see he has a nice touch. I liked his pit bull because he really showed everybody how sweet those little guys can be.

You can see love in the eyes of a dog. Daddy must have been a special dog! That was so nice of a stranger to help you out the way she did. People can be special, too!


Madi and Mom said...

How wonderful you met the dog whisper!! I love his show....
Did I hearing that Daddy died? The last new show of his I watched he was selecting a few new dogs for his pack saying it was time for Daddy to rest. When did he die?

Yes, dog people are truly special. I'm sorry, I just couldn't watch the video. Too many losses recently and I was a huge (okay, tiny) Daddy fan.


Oh man... you were so close so close. Daddy will truly be missed.

Hi Kit! I am late to the blogs today, was so busy this is the first chance I had to visit. I too loved Daddy, he had a great life and was a great partner to Cesar Milan. I too saw Cesar in Newark NJ in 2008. He gave a great lecture and was very personable too. xoxo
