This is Maxx Chewning and his puppy Dood
Maxx knew he wanted to do something great for his dog Dood’s first birthday.
Not only did he want to show his puppy an incredible moment, but he wanted his whole city of Texas to know about it.
The best way to get your message across? Maxx Rent an electronic billboard for a day and put Dood’s photo on it. “The poster company had never heard of anything like this and they were thrilled to have something creative and fun on their digital screens,” said Chewning.
But not all of Chewning’s friends were so positive about his plan. Some have wondered why Chewning would really pay the rent for a billboard for his dog’s birthday, especially because Dood can’t read. But for Chewning, it was an interesting investment.
Since Dood entered Chewning’s life, the two have been inseparable. “Dood is a very energetic puppy who enjoys being with people as much as possible,” said Chewning. “He goes with me wherever I go and I take him to work every day.”
When the big day finally arrived, Chewning filmed it from start to finish. First, he brought Dood to Starbucks for a Puppuccino and stopped near the billboard. Dood didn’t seem too interested, so they continued their plans.
They played a search game, and then Chewning gave Dood a personalized dog cake. At night, Chewning brought Dood back to the billboard to see him turned on. Look at that, Dood! Everyone is very happy to see your face up there, “he said in the video.
Dood’s big day ended with a trip to the pet store: “I let him choose what he wanted,” said Chewning.
