Greetings from Busam Automotive. Did you know that today (Nov. 12) is Chicken Soup for the Soul Day?! According to the creators of the book series of the same name, Chicken Soup for the Soul Day was created as “…. a celebration of who you are, where you’ve been, where you’re going, and who you will be thankful to when you get there!”

At Busam Automotive we are always here to help you get “where you’re going”!

If that is interesting enough, here are a few pieces of  history from This Day in History since 1909

November 7, 1910 – The first air freight shipment (from Dayton, Ohio, to Columbus, Ohio) is undertaken by the Wright Brothers and department store owner Max Moorehouse.

November 11, 1921 – The Tomb of the Unknowns is dedicated by US President Warren G. Harding at Arlington National Cemetery.

I hope everyone had another great week! Everything is great over here. Love a Pet Month at Busam Subaru is barking and purring right along. We have 6 Subaru’s sold so far this month, which equals $600 for local animal rescues.

Our Nissan store is also rockin’ and rollin’ with the Year End Sales Event. Please feel free to contact us for the latest and greatest Nissan products.

The Suzuki store is also excited to show off its brand new website with video walk-arounds and some other pretty awesome features. Check it out today!

Until next week, I’m Andrew Shipp ^AS of Busam Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki


Busam Subaru Visits the Ohio Pug Rescue

Subscribe in a reader

I recently had the opportunity to visit with Teresa Livesay of the Ohio Pug Rescue (OPR). In addition to being the Foster Care Coordinator for the Cincinnati and Dayton area, she hosts adoptable pugs as well.

Livesay started with OPR three years ago, and has seen 113 pugs pass through her home on their way to  adoption. Livesay said, “Pugs are great dogs to adopt because they are always happy and friendly. I think that’s why so many get adopted.”

There are currently two pugs up for adoption at Livesay’s home: Cajun and Trevor. I can tell you from personal experience, they are fun Pugs! Check out these cute pictures:

Cajun is a 2 year old who was pulled from a shelter. He has lots of life and is super friendly.


Trevor is a 5 year old who was an owner surrender. Cajun likes A LOT of attention. He would do best as an only pet.


OPR has been helping pugs find homes for 15 years with a 100% volunteer staff. There is an extensive network of host homes that take care of the pups until they are ready for adoption. Each OPR pug is spay or neutered, given all necessary shots, and microchipped before they are eligible for adoption.

Cajun, Trevor, and other Pugs will be up for adoption at our upcoming Love a Pet at Busam Subaru event. We are hoping for a big turnout to help get a lot of dogs adopted. Please let your friends know about this great event!
