SAN DIEGO - A local therapy dog celebrated his 5th birthday Sunday.
Unleashed by Petco held a party in Hillcrest for Chopper the Biker Dog. Kids got a chance to meet him and see his signature motorcycle, and Chopper got to enjoy some cake.
His owner says Sunday was about more than just a birthday celebration.
"Chopper's all about doing positive things in the community, giving back, doing special things for people that need it, so what we've incorporated in his birthday celebration is that we're collecting clothes for our local homeless veterans," said Mark Shaffer.
Donations were also collected for some of Chopper's favorite animal rescue groups.
