The "Chopper Love" - Magical 'Therapy-Dog' Tour
Part 1 was a SUCCESS!!!
Tour 1 was dedicated to and Inspired by Katie
Barber Pittaway who passed away recently.....
losing her 6 year battle to cancer. Chopper was not able to get to KC in time to give her his "Chopper Love" :(
(Scroll down, read story below)
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,
We want to come meet you, visit your loved ones and friends..... and Share some "Chopper Love"

The Tour was a HUGE success, thank you to all those who helped make this possible.
Unfortunately, this was my first road trip and trying to take on a Blog page and website, along with my travels and stops, it was way to much for me to keep up on my posts..... and I feel REALLY BAD for that.
I learned a lot from this trip, and my next one will be better organized for my fans to keep up with me :)
As this is
Chopper's first "Road Trip", it will be a "Trial Run"
A BIG Thank You to
San Diego Harley
Davidson as well as ALL of Chopper's fans
for being a part to help make this trip/dream possible for Chopper and I.
MUCH Appreciated! Thank You EVERYONE!!
