Our lengendary superstar dog turns 13

September 2, 2009

Pepper_bday_IMG_3377The stunt dog that started it all, turned 13 years old yesterday on Tuesday September 1st.  Extreme Pepper is the one responsible for the origination of the “Extreme Canines Stunt Show”.  He is a legend in the Frisbee dog and performing dog world. He made it big in the NFL on ABC’s Monday Night Football and appeared on the CBS Early Show live from New York. Pepper has starred in commercials and was even featured in Sports Illustrated magazine back in his day. He and his furry companions have entertained millions in the past 10 years as animal rescue advocates. Their mission: to promote animal rescue, pet adoption, and encourage spay and neutering nationwide. Pepper has also inspired many to spend more time with their dogs at home over the years. He is the 2000 National Champion Frisbee Dog as seen on the Incredible Dog Challenge and was the second runner up in 2001.

Pepper spent his birthday yesterday greeting the audience prior to all the shows, while chomping on his favorite tennis ball.  He was sporting a red bandanna with a yellow star on the front when he pranced out on the field with pride. He pulled off some fun tricks and caught a couple flying discs. Pepper amazed the audience with his “in-motion signature spinning” (chasing his tail) while catching a butterfly throw. As soon as he made the catch Chris proudly stated, “Ladies and gentleman look at that; he’s still got the stuff!”  Kids then guessed his age and the highest guesser said he couldn’t be more than 9 years old. The audience roared with amazement when they found he was now 13 years old.

Pepper_bday_IMG_3382After the shows it was time for a road trip. Pepper made his way to Taco Bell and had a little bean burrito and some Mexican pizza. He had more dog gone fun when he headed over to the nearby Petsmart to celebrate his birthday. Pepper trotted around the isles and sniffed out his favorite toys. He enjoyed carrying each one around until he found his next selection. He had a fun ride last night and ended his evening playing with all his new toys. He even shared some with his favorite pals.
