What is a Dog Whisperer – Pet tip 215

These days you hear a lot about the term ‘dog whisperer’ and most people associate the term with one particular dog trainer, Cesar Milan. Many people think that he created the term when in fact this is false. The term dog whisperer is actually a term borrowed from horse training, where certain trainers or horse whisperers seemed to be able to get horses to calm down and accept training or accept a rider on their backs. Their methods were often ‘quiet’ (as opposed to more traditional punitive techniques) to an observer as these trainers seemed to get results from quiet whispers. These days though, the term has been diluted and many people use the term loosely.

My parents adopted Gypsy from the Ottawa Humane Society in January 1979 (when my mother was pregnant with me!) when she was about 2-3-months old. When I was a toddler, I would not leave Gypsy alone! I used to chase her and pull her tail. I don't think she forgave me until I was maybe 10-13-years old. She was very affectionate (especially with my mom), but was a bit of a loner and she definitly had her bad moods! She was an indoor/outdoor cat her whole life but never went too far from home, especially in her older years. Unfortunately, after the "Ice Storm" in January 1998, she acted differently and seemed to be in a bit of pain. Before we could take her to the vet (who she hated with a passion!), she died peacefully (she almost seemed to just "fall asleep") on the floor of the family room one evening while everyone was watching TV. She wa the first cat to be buried in my parents' garden, the "unofficial pet cemetery". Gypsy we love you!
