Cesar Millan, better known as the Dog Whisperer, suffered a tragic loss when his beloved pit bull named Daddy passed away.
Millan decided to turn to a Mexican tradition to remember the 16-year-old dog by lighting 500 white candles in Daddy’s honor and keeping his ashes as a memento, according to PeoplePets.com.
Although Millan still has another 10 dogs in his care, he plans on adding a new pup to the group, saying that he plans to rescue a dog that needs his help.
"We are going to bring another member to the pack," he told the news provider. "A dog that needs our help, a dog that would be euthanized because nobody understands him."
He added that keeping the pack balanced is exactly the perfect way to remember Daddy, who wouldn’t want to the other canines to feel sad.
Millan is renowned for being able to communicate with dogs and properly train them to behave. According to his Web site, many people refer to Millan as the Doctor Phil of dogs because his practices of proper pet care help him pinpoint why a dog is acting erratically.
