Chopper and I have this passion, to go out and make a difference in lives, to those people in need. Chopper has been sharing his “Chopper Love” and “Chopper Kisses” with so many people in and around the San Diego area for over 5 years now, it’s now time to take the “Chopper Love” on the road. Chopper and I never ask to be “paid” for what we do, never expecting anything in return. All expenses are “out of pocket”. (with some donations accepted along the way) Everything we do comes from deep in our hearts…. but there are costs.
We are asking the fans, the followers, the supporters of Chopper the Biker Dog to donate, to help us fulfill our dream, to travel, not only to meet Chopper’s fans & supporters, visit nursing homes, VA centers, Alzheimer’s facilities, those with special needs (and the list goes on), outside the San Diego area…. BUT, to visit Chopper’s fan’s family members and friends who may be “In need of some “Chopper Love”, who follow Chopper on Facebook , Instagram and Twitter. Chopper wants to come visit YOU and YOUR families and friends who may be ill or in need of a “Special Chopper Visit”. Maybe your mom or dad has Alzheimer’s, maybe your grandfather is a Vet at a VA Medical center…. Maybe your child has Down Syndrome and needs Chopper to accompany them to the dentist or to have their blood drawn. I receive so many requests asking if I will be in different areas, different states to visit loved ones from Chopper’s fans….. more often than not, I have to say, “I’m sorry…. I will not be able to”. It’s now time to “hit the road”!!!!! This Road trip is about YOU, and without your help and support, this road trip will not be possible.
Although we may not be traveling to your city now, please donate,
as you can help us and be part of us “making a difference”
|***** The “Chopper Love” – Magical Therapy Dog Tour” was inspired by Katie Barber- Pittaway and a private message Chopper received on March 19, 2015 which read in part: “I have a friend in need….she is terminal, at KU med center (Kansas City). A visit from you would mean the world to her….and all of us. She is 39, and has been fighting cancer since 2009. The Dr`s have given her a month to live, and she wants to fight for her life until May when her daughter graduates college.“April 2, 2015, just 2 weeks later, Chopper received another updated message which read, “”Katie died today, shortly after 5pm. Her suffering is over, no more pain.” – “She had been battling kidney cancer for 7 years, and fought her heart out through it.”
May Katie Rest in Peace. This “Tour” is for you Katie! Chopper’s fans will help make it happen!!! I am sure of it. Spreading his “Chopper Love” to those in need, as you were….. where Chopper and I are deeply saddened that we were not able to make the trip to see you.
***** Saturday, April 4, 2015 I posted on my Facebook page, “Do you live in the San Diego area? Do you have a loved one / family member who may be in a nursing home, hospital, medical facility or on hospice care that may need some “Easter Love” from “Chopper the Biker Dog” tomorrow??? Send me a message…. Chopper wants to go give some love tomorrow to those who are in need, on Easter Day”
We received a response that read in part, “We have a friend who is a bi lateral amputee. He is 48 years old and the greatest guy you will ever meet. He lives in a nursing home in Escondido. He loves dogs. If you and Chopper have the time he and the rest of the residents of the (facility name withheld for privacy reasons) would love a visit.”
Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, Chopper and I roll up on our Harley’s to honor this request… to visit this amazing man John and others at the nursing facility. You ask, we come! That’s just how we roll!
