Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon

Many of our four-legged friends of the canine persuasion were out and about enjoying the April air on Saturday, April 9th for KLBJ’s Dog Day Afternoon. This event was held at the Triangle Courtyard from noon to 4 pm to benefit dog rescue groups. The rescue groups involved were: German Shepherd Rescue of Central Texas, Chris’ Rescue Angels, Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Paws of Austin, Small Chance Rescue, Texas GSP Rescue, Weimaraner Rescue of Texas, and Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue. This event was enjoyed by dog lovers as well who attended to show their love and support. Activities included weinee dog races, doggie pools, and doggie agility training, with music being played in the background from the KLBJ Rock of Austin tent. There were also many fun vendors, like Dogdration, a peanut butter flavored snack water for dogs and Tomlinson’s Pet Stores handing out Frisbees! This was the second annual event for Dog Day Afternoon and Austin Subaru was able to be a proud sponsor!

“As dog lovers, Austin Subaru enjoys being part of as many activities as we can to help as many dogs as we can. Dog Day Afternoon was a great event to help many dog rescue groups and hopefully make a huge difference!” said Brent Baker, General Manager of Austin Subaru.

Austin Infiniti Facebook iPad Winner

Austin Infiniti Facebook iPad Winner

Alex Franco, a long-time radio talent in the Austin area and producer of the hit morning show “The JB and Sandy Show” and Austin Infiniti came up with a fun and interactive way to give one lucky Infiniti fan an iPad for Valentine’s Day this year. The rules were simple: write on Austin Infiniti’s Facebook page why you love your Infiniti or why you would love to own an Infiniti and post a photo of said Infiniti. Then Alex would pick his favorite and announce the winner on February 14th. Never did we imagine such a heartwarming story. Here is what Pam Mathers-Johnston, the iPad winner, posted: “I had a 2003 G-35. My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. I thought I needed a minivan I traded it in and have been sad ever since. Now I have a new G and just put custom rims on it! I LOVE MY G!!!!! I wont be getting rid of it anytime soon!!!” Alex, like many of us, was moved by the story of such sacrifice for a loved one and then with an obviously hopeful and joyous ending. So, when she came in to pick up her spoils, I had to ask here how her daughter was doing. “She is doing tremendous. I was in a state of panic when she was diagnosed. I thought we would have to be carrying around all of these supplies and that she might have trouble getting in and out.” She added that her daughter has been wanting an iPad for awhile, and that she is going to surprise her with this one for her 13th birthday that is coming up in March. This contest was a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Austin Infiniti and we are happy that the prize went to such a deserving winner. For updates on future giveaways, be sure to check out our Austin Infiniti Facebook page!
