World Stray Animals Day: Why This Cause Is So Important To Me

By Cesar Millan I was very honored to have been asked to be the ambassador for World Stray Animals Day and I wanted to take a moment to explain why it means so much to me. People see stray animals going through garbage on the street looking for food and they would just rather not see them. They don’t make the neighborhood look nicer—they just seem like they’re dirty and spread disease. They don’t really care where these animals go, as long as they’re gone.

Can You Afford A Dog?

My wife had just brought our 8-month-old puppy into the vet to be neutered. She calls me about ten minutes later: “It’s going to be twice what we budgeted.” “Why?” “He only has one testicle. The other one didn’t descend.” “So he only has half the testicles and the neuter costs double?” The difference in cost was because the vet had to root around Sam’s abdomen to look for the other testicle. I understood, but it caused some budgetary rearranging that month. I share this story to illustrate the costs that a lot of prospective dog owners fail to take
