When Maxx Chening’s dog, Dood was going to turn 1, he knew he wanted to do something special. Not only did he want to spent an amazing day celebrating, he wanted everyone in their Texas town to celebrate with them.
So, for the very special occasion, he rented an electronic billboard for the day and put Dood’s adorable smiling face on it! The billboard company had never had a request like it so they were super excited about it, too.
“The billboard company had never heard of anything like this and they were excited for something creative and fun to be on their digital screen,” Chewning told The Dodo.
Not everyone could understand the excitement of celebrating Dood’s big 1 by renting a billboard but Chewning was undeterred. Just because Dood can’t read, doesn’t mean he won’t know it’s his special day and the billboard turned out adorable. Plus, Chewning is single and doesn’t have anyone else to spend his money on (hear that, ladies?).
“I don’t even have a girlfriend so I’m not spending any money on that, so why don’t I spend it all on my dog?” Chewning said in a video on YouTube. “Seems like the better option, to be honest.”
It’s obvious that Chewning and his pup are BFF’s. The two are inseparable:
“Dood is a very energetic puppy who loves to be around people as much as possible,” Chewning told The Dodo. “He goes with me everywhere I go, and I bring him to work every day.”
“Every time I walk through the door he bursts up from the ground and greets me with a bundle of energy and love,” he added. “Dood is a great dog and he truly has brought happiness into my life. He is my best friend.”
For Dood’s big day, the pals stopped at Starbuck for a Puppaccino then drove by the funtastic billboard. Dood was more interested in the things to come than the sign so next they went to the park for a game of fetch.
Having so much fun, created an appetite so next they had peanut birthday cake. That evening he took Dood back to see the sign all lit up and then finished the day with a shopping spree at the pet store.
Dood looks like one of the happiest dogs on the planet and he had such a blast on his birthday. What an awesome dad he has. Such a lucky boy.
Happy Birthday, Dood. Can’t wait to see what’s planned for number 2. Please share with your family and friends.
