Rocky Kanaka, the founder of The Dog Bakery, is a well-known dog lover on a mission to make every dog’s day out special. In his online series, “Dog’s Day Out,” he showcases overlooked shelter dogs, with the aim of raising awareness about their plight and finding them their forever homes.
In a recent episode, Rocky featured Maple, a pit bull who suffered from severe lacerations and puncture wounds when she was found as a puppy under an overpass in Tehachapi, California. Thanks to the intervention of Marley’s Mutts rescue organization, Maple received the necessary medical treatment to recover. However, due to the stigma attached to pit bulls and her injuries, Maple faced a difficult future.
Rocky dresses up Maple the pit bull to break down stereotypes and showcase her personality
To break down stereotypes and showcase Maple’s personality, Rocky dressed her up in a butterfly costume and took her to a hardware store at dawn. This was a chance for Maple to receive attention and love from people who saw her in her costume. Pit bulls are often discriminated against, so Rocky wanted to use this opportunity to help Maple overcome negative stereotypes.
Maple enjoys a spa day and a giant PB and J sandwich on her special day out
Since Maple couldn’t go to the dog park or hiking due to her open wounds, Rocky arranged a spa day for her. He painted her nails, set up a kissing booth, and offered treats to make her feel loved and special. To highlight Rocky’s recipe for Ooey, Gooey PB and J Cookies, they also visited the set of Hallmark’s “Home and Family” and made a giant PB and J sandwich for Maple to enjoy.
A relaxing massage to end the day for Maple
The day ended with a massage to help Maple relax and relieve the tension in her muscles. Rocky’s efforts to help dogs like Maple are commendable, and his passion for making a difference in the lives of shelter dogs is heartwarming. His online series, “Dog’s Day Out,” aims to change people’s perceptions of shelter dogs and help them find their forever homes, one dog at a time.

There once was a pit bull in pain
Whose future seemed nothing but vain
With love and some care
A transformation so rare Now
a butterfly, she’ll never be the same!
