    Dave's Bio:

    I moved to Vermont in 1992 with my wife Susan.  We live in the Champlain Islands with our Australian Shepherd Bentley.  I began selling cars in 1990 eventually working my way up to being the Owner and managing partner of 802 Toyota, Twin City Subaru and 802usedcars.com.  Outside of work, family and being outdoors are the things I enjoy the most; and, oh yeah, beer!  I am one of 10 siblings all born within 12 years of one another, I have 25 nieces and nephews, and both my wife and I still enjoy the company of all four of our parents.  If it is outside in Vermont, count me in!

  • Bentley
    Chief Dog

    Hi, my name is Bentley and I am the "Chief Dog" at 802 Honda.  I don't take the title too seriously so all canines are welcome here.  Australian Shepherds are notoriously quirky and I am no exception although I prefer to think of myself as a unique individual.   I am extremely friendly so please come and pet me.  Warning, I can't seem to stop myself from kissing just about everyone I meet.  I am always hungry and may seem like I want your donut, but I am on a diet so please don't feed me.

    I want to meet you all!


    Bentley's Bio:

    Bentley lives in the Champlain Islands with his people, the Birminghams.  He is a rescue dog from Aussie Rescue and is four years old.  He is truly one of the friendliest dogs around and seems to love every man, woman, child, cat, dog and you name it.  When Bentley is not working his favorite place is Niquette Bay State Park running the trails.

She has lots of gardens and loves flowers, and her favorite Vermont destination is her home. Why does Melody love working at 802 Honda?
