Paw Prints

At Stapp Interstate Toyota one of the things we take pride in is that we are a local, family owned and operated dealership. Our owners are in the store every day, no matter when you come, you are bound to run into a Stapp. We also take pride in supporting the community we live and do business in. This month we are proud to partner with The Longmont Humane Society and their Paws In The Park fundraiser. It is being held on Saturday September 26th. You can get more information here.

With that in mind, we decided to introduce you to some of the four-legged furry friends that our a part of our family. We asked our staff to send pictures and stories about their pet. So as told by their pet parents, let us introduce you to the Furry Friends of Stapp!

Jacquelyn Joy- Customer Care Manager

Not all dogs live a “dog’s life”.  Read on to see how Jacquelyn met Chancy. It’s a rough beginning, but a wonderful ending.

Jacqueleyn

Ten years ago, I was driving down a country road in Texas when I first saw Chancy. He was just sitting by the side of the road as if he were waiting for someone. I had never seen a dog look so bad. How could I not stop! When I got out of the Jeep, he came right up to me and that was when his state of health really hit me. He sort of looked like a Golden Retriever but I wasn’t really sure. He was skin and bones and he had no fur except on his head and a 4 inch strip running along each side of him. His tail was gorgeous and the rest of him…was just black skin. No fur. He was weak and the odor coming from him was like the smell of death. He was covered in fleas and ticks but still so friendly, a Velcro dog. He slowly followed me back to the jeep and when I opened the back lift gate and told him to jump in, all he could do was put his front paws on the bumper. He leaned onto the bumper and just looked at me. I lifted him into the jeep where he curled into a little ball and went sound asleep.
 
I called Dr. Norma, my vet and told her what I had found and that most likely he would need to be euthanized. I was so sad and angry driving to her office, wondering how such a wonderful dog got in this terrible condition.
 
For whatever the reasons, the stars had aligned when I found him. He tested negative for heart worm, unbelievable for a dog in such bad shape, especially in the Gulf States. His skin was black because he had Demodex Mange and it had gone septic, poisoning his blood. Chancy started on a long road to recovery.
 
You should see Chancy now!  He is still a Velcro dog and loves everyone. He holds no grudge towards people, which is very surprising considering what he had been through.
 
He is crazy with his toys that squeak.  One way or another he is going to figure out how to get the squeaker out of the toy. 
He makes me laugh every day especially when he plays and acts silly as only a Golden Retriever can.   I am so fortunate!

Ali This is my baby, Puppy! I have had him for about 4 years and he is about 7 years old. He loves to play with his toys. sleep/cuddle with me, and eat anything and everything. When he gets really excited he sticks his tongue out. And he snores. He is spoiled rotten, is a momma’s boy and is the happiest little thing ever!

This is Gracie, a lab mix. We adopted her 7 years ago from a local rescue when she was about 6 months old. She is a very friendly, energetic dog. We had her for almost 2 years and never heard her bark. The day we brought our oldest daughter home from the hospital she found her “job.  She now lets us know of anyone and anything that comes around the house.  Gracie loves her girls, which is one of the best things about her.

Brion Stapp- Dealer Principal

This is Maximus Octavius Stapp. He’s 9 years old and we got him for my daughter’s 3rd birthday. Our family has a very unique high-pitched “voice” we use when we speak on his behalf.

 

That’s all we have for now. We hoped you enjoyed getting to know our 4 legged furr friends a little bit better. Feel free to share stories and photos of your pet here, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We would love to see who leaves paw prints on your heart!
