I LOVE this show! Cesar Millan has helped me become a much better dog owner thanks to watching his show for the past few years. He’s going on a cross country tour, but he’s NOT coming to Winnipeg! The gang at Urban Canine Doggy Daycare hope we can change that by starting a Facebook page. Please join the cause and show Cesar that we’re pack leaders and dog lovers!

How cute?? Meet Robyn, one of two baby Red Pandas born at The Assiniboine Park Zoo this past June. Unfortunately, the Red Pandas are not on display to the public due to exhibit renovations and the two recent newborns will be placed in other zoos as soon as they are weaned. So get a good look!
