When you talk to Cesar Millan about dogs, your conversation is never really about dogs. It's about life. "Dog Whisperer" Millan was in South Philadelphia on Friday for his new show, Dog Nation , premiering on Nat Geo Wild early next year and costarring his 22-year-old son, Andre. This is not Andre's first on-camera gig. He's the host of an animal-themed talk show, Pet Talk . "I always wanted him to be a part of this because I love it so much," Millan said. "But I didn't know if he wanted to, so sometimes you have to let your kids go and hope that one day they join you in something you've built.

At 68, Yusuf Islam, the artist better known as Cat Stevens (a.k.a. Steven Demetre Georgiou), has entered the taking-stock/legacy-curation chapter of his life, which explains why his current tour, nicknamed "A Cat's Attic," is sort of a live-action memoir with a classic, precision-rendered soundtrack. Thursday night at the Kimmel Center, the stage set depicted the bifurcated attic of Stevens' home, looking out at the rooftops of London, beneath a gently smoking chimney, in the glow of a full moon.

With nothing to play for but good old fashioned pride, the Phillies dealt a blow to a team that is still playing somewhat meaningful baseball. Jimmy Paredes' RBI single over a drawn-in infield with one out in the 13th inning provided the Phillies with a 4-3 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Besides wiping out the sour taste of Thursday's 15-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Phillies also hurt the Marlins' ever slimmer postseason chances. Miami began the day four games out of the second wild-card spot.

For art museums, this season is all about the Big Picture, in more ways than one. The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts is providing a visual panorama of how Americans responded to one of the most catastrophic events of the 20th century. And at its heart is an epic, CinemaScope-scale painting of a grotesque event, Gassed by John Singer Sargent, on loan from the Imperial War Museum in London. The great 20th-century Mexican muralists also produced some big pictures, often on big subjects, such as The Epic of American Civilization , by José Clemente Orozco.
