A beloved pet since he was four months old — and a frequent guest on The Dog Whisperer and four-legged ambassador for Pit Bulls worldwide — the 16-year-old pooch was surrounded by his family at his time of death. Rest in peace!
Along with all the sad news surfacing about his marriage this week, I was stunned to learn that Jesse James reported Cinnabun missing once again on March 15. After Cinnabun's miraculous return (the first time), they were certain to get the pooch equipped with HomeAgain, which tracks microchips. Thankfully, this pittie was recovered on March 18 and it was explained on the West Coast Choppers website:
Here's hoping this won't happen anymore!
We rarely go into our storage room in the production building but Cinnabun found her way in somehow. She’s back in the office and in high spirits.

Looks like some pup is surely glad to be home again! I was happily surprised, too, when the West Coast Choppers' shop dog was found and returned last month, and even though the pittie became a bit skinnier during her time away, she's nearly back to normal now!
Daddy appeared over 50 times on The Dog Whisperer to bring his balanced energy to unmanageable dogs so, to celebrate the pup's life and continue to give back, the Millan Foundation has established an Emergency Animal Rescue Fund in Daddy's honor. It not only provides funding and assistance for dogs who are victims in large-scale disasters (like hurricanes or fires) but also helps those victims of "man-made disasters," such as hoarders, abuse, and puppy mills. RIP, sweet pooch!
Happy endings aren't just for fairy tales, as "Cinny" is alive, well, and back home at West Coast Choppers! Owner Jesse James received a phone call this morning and, shortly thereafter, a woman returned Cinnabun.After his dog disappeared almost one month ago (on Jan. 25), Jesse took to Twitter with his pleas for the pitty's safe return. The pooch may be a few pounds slimmer, but I'll bet she receives some pretty sweet treats as a welcome back meal.
Last week, I brought you the sad news of this pooch's Long Beach disappearance, and she's still on the loose with the offered reward now up to $5,000! Owner Jesse James continues to tweet new pics in the hopes that someone sees the pittie — this sweet one nearly made me tear up.Even his wife misses CinnaBun, reportedly saying that she'd give anything, including her Oscar nomination, to get the dog back. I'm not surprised, since animal-loving Sandra Bullock is already a great doggie mom to Ruby and Poppy.

This insanely adoro pooch is named Harley – personally, I don't see how could you not love her cute face?! Well, seems her owner BloodyFuFu faces the problem that (sadly) many pittie owners see: people who want nothing to do with this breed based on things they've "heard."
Since they're in a pet-friendly office, several people bring dogs and she's worked with several co-workers to help them see how sweet her pooch is . . . but one has been scared of Harley since the pup was rescued two years ago and passed that fear on to her own dog. BloodyFuFu shares in the Pet Peeves group:
I can tell my dog's intentions from the pitch of her bark to her movements to her posture and I know that Harley sees this other dog as a potential playmate. The problem is really that due to fear, this woman sees Harley as a threat, her dog sees Harley as a threat, and she doesn't see when her dog is the aggressor or make any attempts to control her dog. I feel bad for trying to correct my dog for wanting to play, but I don't know what else to do. This woman also recently moved offices so now she is right next door and it seems like this will be a major issue. What can I do about someone that is unwilling to look past stereotypes and be comfortable with my dog? I don't want constant tension between the dogs, but if the owner is unwilling the dog is unwilling.
Please offer any advice below!
Can you pick North out of that picture? Although I consider myself pretty good at naming dog breeds, I'm always shocked by the number of people who get confused seeing my lil pup. He begrudgingly endures "I looove Pugs" or "What a cute Frenchie" at least once a week, but the funniest story comes from our days in NYC.
There was an issue with my tub's leaky pipes so a plumber (supervised by the super) had to come in to fix them. On the afternoon of the appointment day, I get a phone call from my building's management company informing me that he could not fix the problem and had to leave because of my (and I do quote) "vicious pit-bull puppy." Umm, yeah, that would be North. In his crate . . . and obviously freaking out because strangers came in and didn't let him out to play!
Trying not to be outraged at the stereotype behind the "vicious pit bull" statement, I had to explain to management that I had a crated, 15-pound Boston Terrier surely hellbent on "death by kisses" and go home on my lunch break to sit with them while they fixed it the next day. Do you have people misidentifying your pups as well? Share in the comments below!
Copper is an all-adventure type pooch. Here is a pic from his latest outing: he and his crew rowed around Idaho's Ririe Reservoir in a pontoon boat. I can't wait to see the pics of him doing other adventure-type stuff. You know, like rock climbing, skydiving, parasailing . . . those kinds of things.
Congrats to Copper and fleegle for being chosen as our Pet Pic of the Day! Don't forget to submit your favorite snapshots to our Pet Pics group – you may see your best pals on PetSugar!
Puppies, puppies everywhere! First I gush over Aggie, and now I have Rosie pulling on my heartstrings! Lovely_1's new eight-week-old Pit Bull is so sweet! Those my friends, are what you'd call "Puppy Dog Eyes." Oh yes.
