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 also works with the Veterans who have served in the arm forces with their handicaps. Chewee is very proud to serve the public as an AKC Therapy Dog.

On this Labor Day weekend Zannee decides he wants to take a dip in the Ocean. He was very happy to go into the water but when he realized he couldn't touch bottom anymore he was very happy to swim into shore. It was a great experience for him but, dad was always only a few feet away at all times.
