Gilles Bensimon/Cesar's Way Magazine The "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan is mourning the death of his cherished pit bull, Daddy, who passed away on Feb. 19 at the age of 16. He died peacefully surrounded by the family that loved him: Millan, his wife Ilusion and their young sons, Andre and Calvin.

Gilles Bensimon/Cesar's Way Magazine In the newest issue of Cesar's Way magazine -- on newsstands Dec. 1 -- famed "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan pens a touching article about finding the right pit-bull puppy to follow in the large, calm paw prints left by Millan's beloved pit bull, Daddy. "Daddy is 15, which means he's getting old," writes Millan in the article. "I've known for a while that I would have to adopt another pit bull."

Cesar Millan, Inc. Have you ever watched "Dog Whisperer" and thought to yourself, "This is a great reality show, but it would make a really great sitcom"? Well, you're in luck. According to Variety, a new comedy based on Cesar Millan's life -- currently the subject of his own Emmy-award-nominated reality show on the National Geographic Channel -- is in development at Fox and will star Wilmer Valderrama, best known for his role as Fez on "That 70's Show," as a successful dog trainer. We hope that, if it makes it to air, the new show will last longer than another popular reality star's attempt at crossing over to the traditional sitcom format. Emeril Lagasse's famously doomed...
