We could barely contain our excitement, and the difficulty not to announce this to you all until today! Boy was that tough. So now we are officially introducing, Chocko the Super-bassador, part of the Stubby Dog Superhero Team!
It was about a month ago when we found out and it was published on Stubbydog.org. Here we are, for your confirmation: Official StubbyDog Superhero Squad! So what exactly is the Stubby Dog Superhero Team? It’s a team of amazing dogs from across the country, with a few common goals. Below is taken from StubbyDog.org:
“Superhero, Superhero in Training or Super-bassador: each role plays an extremely important part in the StubbyDog super community.
Together this “super” community is on a mission, specifically to:
Place 5,000 dogs in need of good homes
Reach 25,000 different media outlets
Educate 100,000 on responsible dog guardianship
Inspire 1,000,000 “rediscoveries”… and motivate an infinite number of smiles!
Our goal is simple: for people to no longer view pit bulls as a special category of dog – but, instead, as individual dogs. ” stubbydog.org
I love the goal! It’s so simple, right? I mean a dog is a dog is a dog, but with the program, not only are all these pitbulls dogs, they are superheros!
There are 3 categories. Superheros – extraordinary therapy dogs spreading good cheer and love with big pittie smiles
Superheros in training – Like the elite squad, but just awaiting their certification or a bit more training,
and Superbassadors - super passionate and super motivated advocates dedicated to spreading good pitbull cheer!
Now this boy of ours, who we adopted only 12 weeks ago, should be very proud of himself! He is certainly my partner in crusading around to advocate and help change the minds of people every day. I also have some very ambitious goals for him in the next year… I won’t share those with you yet, but it seems that being honored with the Superbassador-title is a great place to start! I am very proud of him to say the least.
We’ve got some excellent events coming up that we are excited to attend and help spread the good word of the Stubby Dog Superhero mission! If you’re in the area and want to come out and help support our efforts and meet Mr. Chocko, here’s his October line up of events:
- October 14th- Purple Stride MD at Oregon Ridge
- October 20th- Barcstoberfest at Patterson Park – greeting fans and running his first 5k! Supporting the shelter where both he and our late boy Knox were adopted from. (Here’s last year’s post from Barcstoberfest).
- October 28th- Pitbulls on Parade, National Pitbull Awareness Day Edition, hosted by B-More Dog
All of the above events are dog friendly, so if your well-mannered pup is up for some fall fun (and it IS National Pitbull Awareness Month!) bring ‘em on out! And don’t worry, we’ll have the full report on all of those events, and of course there are some others in the works as well!
Happy Pitbull Awareness Month!
Love, Chocko and his support team.
