Rest In Peace.

Also, by the very good people who was throughout his life with all those who were lucky and honored to share time with him, people and his own dogs. Mr. Dwight Stubbs, a real example to follow for the new APBT generations.
Mr. Dwight Stubbs was a great devotee of the day on July 4th, he celebrated with passion and love every year because he loved everything about peace and freedom. Probably by this subject, was the reason why the same fate led him to find his own spiritual peace and freedom on the eve of that same day July 4, 2014. Mr. D. Stubbs was a great dogman, exceptional person, a gentleman and a pattern to be followed for all good people with good intentions, whom my wife and me we have many things to be thankful him like all the American Pit Bull Terrier fans. Thank you Mr. Stubbs!!!
In the 90's every time that Mar and me arrived to Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. Stubbs received us at the airport with a endearing and big smile, a strong hug, with the open door of his home and his heart, he care us like if we were his family, did everything in his power to keep us entertained, happy and enjoying everything and everyone. Since the morning till dusk, he was outstanding to us to give us everything that we needed during the day, we talked about dogs, showed us all details of his old dogman memories, experiences, he was very proud to have been fortunate having known and been a friend of the Reverend Howard Heinzl, who learned almost everything that he knew about dogs.

"Ollie” was the father of very good dogs such as Nowell's “Lil Independent”, (Stubbs) "Mrs. Heinzl”, etc. "Ollie" was still alive at that time, was one of the best American Pit Bull Terrier bred by the Reverend Howard Heinzl.

You must had saw the very much proud that Mr. Stubbs was showed when talking about his dogs. The way like he took care his dogs showed how much he loved them, his dogs were part of his family. He could spend hours and hours sitting in his chair, which was prepared to enjoy being comfortable and near of his dogs (the same chair where he was found when he died), especially when he finished the work to take care of his dogs and ended with all daily affairs. He watched it enjoying them, was with them and they with him. Mr. Stubbs never was alone, he was very happy with the life he had chosen.
I was happy when I went to help him with the dogs while Mar was waiting inside the house accompanied by the dogs that living indoors with Mr. Stubbs, “Cody” and “Norma Jean”, under the order of his pack chief Mr. Stubbs, take care of her. This made me laugh the first time I saw it thinking it was a joke, but then I saw that they actually really obeyed the command of their leader when a occasion Billie, the neighbor of Mr. Stubbs, tried to enter the home as was his customary at that time while Mr. Stubbs and me we were taking care the dogs out, then “Cody” and “Norma Jean” jumped the couch to defend Mar, preventing entry to the house under serious threat Billie aggression if he try it, the dogs obeying faithfully in this way the orders of its pack chief, which were to protect Mar, even if it was someone known as was in this case. What intelligent and great dogs were “Cody” and “Norma Jean” (RIP), worthy representatives of the Reverend Howard Heinzl dogs.
Mr. Stubbs took us to meet virtually most of Phoenix; The Grand Canyon; The great Indians Road; Typical malls of the area; Quarter horses; The Superstition Mountains, etc..Unforgettable moments forever with Mr. Stubbs!!! It was a very good person, very kind, considerate, he think that he can not do enough to make us feel good, like we were in our own home, touring the most popular and typical places of the earth so that we could to know this places personaly and enjoy the time in each place and along with him...
Mr. Stubbs knew that I would wish to have one of his dogs. Without hesitation, in one of our trips he gave to Mar and me like gift to a special doggie female named “Mrs. Heinzl”, which during the time he was with us until the end of his life, was the apple of our eyes. What good dog was in every way!!! ... We have so much to thankful to Mr. Stubbs...
One day came to visit to the Mr. Stubbs Yard another good friend, Ruben Valenzuela, and which after a couple of hours of conversation, he invited us to go to his house to meet and to know his family and their dogs. Ruben Valenzuela like Mr. Stubbs, we opened the doors of his house, his beatiful family and his great heart like only the good and great people know do it. Ruben Valenzuela, another great breeder and dogman in the history of the breed dog American Pit Bull Terrier, besides being an extraordinary person and all a gentleman.
One day Ruben Valenzuela, Mr. Stubbs, Mar and me, we were ready to go to visit the old breeder and dogman Jhon Fonseca, but we had to cancel it because unfortunately he had just died the day before. I think to remember that he died with 92 or 94 years old, a lifetime. Jhon Fonseca, another great breeder and dogman in the history of the breed dog American Pit Bull Terrier, which together with the Reverend, Colby, Stubbs, Al Brown, Valenzuela, Tudor, R. Peña, etc., they made amazing things in the breeding with this doggies.
I could write for hours and hours without stopping, recalling anecdotes and experiences with Mr. Stubbs, but for not to dwell too much I think I'll leave it here, because what I wanted to show publicly for all those that not had lucky enough to know him, I think that with that has been reflected enough well to give an idea of the great breeder and great person that we have lost within the international community of the American Pit Bull Terrier. Thanks for everything Mr. Stubbs!!!
Mr. Stubbs, right now you can talk about dogs with your friend the Reverend, you have many things to talk about.
Mr. D. Stubbs, Rest In Peace. We will never forget you!!!
