Chewee attended the East Rockaway 911 Memorial Service. He stood proudly while the Ceremony began and he was so proud to be a part of a great community. While each town supervisor said their speech, the crowd was quiet and reflecting on 10 years ago. The stories of "where were you" came out and everyone sang together and pray together. It was a very moving ceremony and Chewee always adds that special canine bond with the crowd.
A lot of people came over after the ceremony to get their picture with Chewee. He also got many hugs and kisses which he loves so much.
Chewee went the the Adoption Day at the Pet Smart in Valley Stream, NY on the morning of 9/11. He meet fantastic people who were from the organization "Bobbi and the Strays". These people were working hard to find homeless dogs a happy place to live. He met Ellen, Kristina, and Michele working very hard and he wanted to help out in any way to promote the adoption of all the dogs.
Big Chewee strutted his stuff in front of all the people in the store and then outside the store to get as much attention as possible. It was a great success and they invited Chewee to come to the next adoption day in October.
Chewee received his official Therapy certification from the AKC. He also received a silver Medallion for his many hours of Therapy work. Chewee visits Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Homes, Hospitals, Schools and private homes to work with the elderly in recovering from an illness.

Chewee films a segment for the Martha Stewart Show. Here's Chewee waiting for his cue to be interviewed by Marc Morrone for the show. Marc is an animal expert and a very funny guy. He loved Chewee the moment they met. The interview was a success and Chewee enjoyed all the animals he was introduced to. You will be seeing this segment in early Sept on the Hallmark channel/station in your area.
A trip to the pet store is always a favorite thing to do. The boys love to go up and down each isle and check out all the animals. They are taking a a little brake here before they pick out a bone they want from the bone isle.

WPLJ had a bean bag toss and Chewee wanted to play in the worst way. He was so excited he jumped up on me and kissed me all over my face saying, "thanks for bringing me here mom". Chewee now has a new girl friend he can listen to everyday on the radio. It was a wonderfully exciting day for Chewee and COOPER.
Chewee leads the Huckleberry Parade to the Village Hall with the East Rockaway's Ladies Auxilary. It was a very hot morning and Chewee was a champ marching in the parade.

Chewee was very proud to march for his Village and he was treated with water and a hot dog when he finished the parade.
On 6/5/11 the last performance of Oliver Twist was performed. Chewee was a magnificent "Bullseye". He received a standing ovation from the audience and everyone cheered at his fantastic performance. The audiences gasps were heard when he leaped into the air twice in the scene, when Bill Sykes was killing Nancy. Oliver, played by Noah worked together with Chewee to create a true magical stage moment when they had to cling together on stage. Chewee loved working with all the actors and he had a special bond with all of them. At the cast party, the producer had wonderful things to say about him and said he looked forward to working with him again. It was a very exciting night.
