Cesar Millan discusses ‘naturing and nurturing,’ and ‘Cesar 911′

cesar-millan2015 The temperature was in the single digits here in York County, PA, when I spoke with Cesar Millan via phone recently. “It’s 75 degrees here (in Los Angeles),” he said. “Yesterday it was 90.”

(Ugh! Note to self: Look for a job in California.)

We were discussing Millan’s show, “Cesar 911,” and how people can avoid having “problem dogs.” Millan said it all comes down to naturing and nurturing, and that one of the most important things for people to remember is that puppies and babies are not the same.

“Puppies are walking at 2 months, babies are not walking at 2 months,” he said. “At 6 months, a puppy has the strength of a 5-year-old child. So we can’t really treat them the same.”

Not feeling the love this Valentine’s Day? Maybe ‘the one’ for you has four legs

From Best Friends Animal Society:

KANAB, Utah — Flowers. Candy. Declarations of love. For those happily coupled, Valentine’s Day can be one of the best times of the year. For some of the 102 million singles in America, according to Census.gov, the holiday can be awful.

perfect time of year to adopt a pet.”

Declawed orange cat found in Spring Garden Township

found-orangecat0131 A front-declawed male orange cat has been found in the area of Ludlow and Virginia Avenues in Spring Garden Township (York County, PA), near the firehouse, Parma Pizza and Azteca.

lost-orangecat0131b The person who found him said he has a loud meow and he has been hanging around shrubs in the neighborhood for approximately two weeks. A few days ago, he came into the house and went to the basement to hide. He eventually came back upstairs and jumped onto the bed, purring and sucking the corner of the pillowcase. The finder said the cat is clean and has no fleas, mites or worms; uses the litterbox and is not aggressive with other pets — a very polite guest.

If you know where this cat belongs, or if you’re interested in adopting him if his family is not found, email Beauxpurdy@hotmail.com.
