Hi, I’m Thunder aka Bubba! I was the orginal
pittie of the team but now I spend my time
working as a therapy dog. I get to go to foster
homes, hospitals, nursing homes, etc to bring
a smile to those in need. You can follow me
on my own Facebook page "Thunder the
Therapy Pitbull"!! My hobbies include playing
with my toy piggy, annoying my big brother
Storm, and going to work. I have a smile like
Elvis and the energy of the energizer bunny. I
keep going and

Fostered and adopted by Eric & Dana - 2015
Eric is the founder and head pitmaster at PITTY QUE.
Eric grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and has spent
most of his career in the technology field but he has
always loved to cook and even more to barbecue! Eric
and his father, Fred, started out doing competition
barbecue contests together a couple years ago. This was
started as a hobby but grew to so much more.  Eric’s
main objective at the competitions was to make sure the
sauce was the best. In trying many different recipes he
finally got the perfect combination! All of this started as
a way for a father and son to spend more time together
and it has become that and more.
Fred is Eric’s right hand man at PITTY
QUE, they make a great father-son team
when it comes to smoking and
barbecuing. Although Fred lives in
Florida, it's truly an honor to see both of
them together whenever they can be.
Since the first competition that Fred and
Eric did together, everyone knew they
would be a success. One being that the
food and sauce were delicious and second
the teamwork that both showed to each
What can we really say about Dana? She
has a contagious smile and her attitude
is one in a million. For 2020, she has
stepped back from PITTY QUE but will
always be considered part of the great
team and company that was formed. She
is always promoting the team and
making friends at every turn. She will be
working with Thunder on his Therapy
Dog projects and helping bring smiles to
children in need. As you can see in the
picture, she never stops smiling! She is
by far the social butterfly of PITTY QUE
and always will be!
Hi, I’m Storm! I’ve had many foster
brothers and sisters. Sometimes they
annoy me but mommy and daddy say I’m
a good boy because I play with them
anyways. I have allergies, so please don’t
think I’m weird if I rub my face on the
couch when you come over! LOL

Hi, my name is Rayne. I am my
Daddy's baby girl and a spoiled little
princess! I love to chase bunnies and
spend time outside. I have been a great
mommy to all the foster puppies we
have had but most of all I love to steal
my dad's pillow at night!

Adopted by Eric & Dana - 2010
Hi, my name is Munchie and I am the
southern bell of the group. I live in
Florida with my daddy and I love to

Hi there, I'm Maggie and I am just one

I get and also protecting my house

samples and keeping Eric on the
smoker where he belongs!! LOL
