Happy Thanksgiving from Nat Geo WILD, who brings us the rags to riches story of Cesar Millan "The Mexican dog guy" and some unlikely pals in the animal kingdom for your holiday viewing.
Nat Geo WILD dishes up “Friendsgiving” programming on Thanksgiving weekend:
First, Cesar Millan: The Real Story, premieres Thanksgiving weekend and follows Millan’s journey from impoverished illegal immigrant to international dog whispering superstar.
Unlikely Animal Friends – hours of gratuitous cuteness (you should have received a screener recently). Think dolphins and dogs who are swimming buddies, playful cheetahs and puppies who are best friends, owls and kitties playing leapfrog. SOOO cute J I included a few of my favorite clips below. Let me know what you think!
Cesar Millan: The Real Story
Sunday, November 25 at 9 PM ET/PT
Follow Cesar Millan's incredible rise from impoverished illegal immigrant, to celebrity dog trainer, to international superstar.
Unlikely Animal Friends
Three night event starts Friday, November 23 at 8 PM ET/PT
Four hours of frolicking, friendly fun with unlikely duos – including a dog who swims for hours with his dolphin pal, a man who gives up eating poultry after befriending a goose, a house cat who has play dates with a barn owl, and a baboon who fosters a bush baby. These friends show us the emotional power of animals to bond with other species. They'll warm your heart and put a smile on your face.
Kasi the Cheetah and Mtani the Puppy
An orphaned cheetah cub and a rescued lab puppy really know how to play.
The Owl and the Pussycat
In Spain, an owl and a cat while away the hours with harmless flying and leaping games. Billie the Badger and Pixie the Fox
These two best friends run and roll around to their hearts’ content.
