Busam Subaru’s Donation to SPCA Cincinnati Goes to the Dogs (and cats)

Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Jim Retzlaff and Kelly Burke from SPCA Cincinnati to donate $500 from the Love a Pet adoption month at Busam Subaru.

Here is a great picture of Jim, Kelly and Bentley ~


I want to thank Jim and Kelly for taking the time out their busy day to meet with me ~ and I was even able to get a quick video clip of Jim.

Karen's Forester is Ready for Sky, Her Weimaraner

Thumbs Up!

I was fortunate enough to meet with Busam Subaru customer Karen Bause. She came to our service department today to have a dog separator put in her 2010 Subaru Forester. Sky, a 3 ½ month old Weimereiner is the family dog who, in Karen’s words, “is getting a little too big to sit in my lap”.

Sky, is her family’s second weimaraner, this is her second Forester, and now this is her second dog separator. Karen cited many great reasons for investing in a dog separator. “The separator is a great safety precaution. It keeps your dog secured in the back, so they don’t jump up and distract the driver. The separator also keeps the dog safe and maintained in the event of an accident.”

Karen, who resides in Mason, Ohio, is a busy woman! She has three children who are in 4th, 3rd, and Kindergarten respectiviely. In addition to having 3 children, and being a wife, she is a 4th grade teacher in the Finneytown school district.

We’re so happy Karen came in today. It’s awesome to see Subaru products used to protect man’s (and woman’s) best friend! We hope you’ll stop in soon and protect your best friend by putting in a dog separator.

Until next time, I’m Andrew Shipp ^AS of Busam Automotive.

There’s nothing more fun than watching some good ole’ fashioned Tee-Ball. The Busam Subaru sponsored Sharonville Shooting Stars were in action last night against Sharonville Ameristop.

One of many close plays during a great game!

The co-ed league is made up of 5 and 6 year olds playing their hearts out. These kids love it, and are passionate just like 5 or 6 year old should be. On one particular play a Shooting Star was called. As she walked off the field I could see her eyes swelling up, she walked over to her mom and started balling… her mom gave her a big hug and said, “it’s ok, everybody gets out sooner or later!”

These parents are the kind you want coaching your child’s team. Coaches Brian Williams and Kelly Meyer are awesome with the kids. Everything always positive, encouraging, and ensuring everyone is having a great time!

The league is structured to be instructional. Teams consist of 10-11 players. Everyone bats and everyone plays the field each inning. The ball is teed up each time by a coach who stays at home base. The batting team also has 1st and 3rd base coaches. For the fielding team 3-4 coaches in the field to control the chaos.

The quote of the night goes to two parents. I heard from a distance…

Parent 1 – “No playing in the dirt”

Parent 2 – (In a little girl’s voice) “But Daddy, that’s the best part!”

Check out some action shots from the game!
