Dana de Bernardo, Service Writer & Accounting:

Dana de Bernardo has been the bookkeeper and a service writer at State Automotive since 2004, and she can usually be identified wearing a shirt with Andrew's name on it. She grew up in western Michigan, but Dana has lived in Massachusetts her entire adult life. Whenever she visits her family in the Midwest, she is careful to tone down what they call her "Boston Driving Accent." She was an avid, though unremarkable, cook, knitter, and reader. Now that small children have appeared on the scene, she spends most of her free time building exceptionally tall Duplo towers, singing the ABCD song until everyone falls down in a pile of giggles, and reading "Just for You" by heart. As far as hobbies go, she couldn't ask for a better upgrade.

What’s with the BullDawg in your Logo?

Genesee "Genny" de Bernardo. March 17, 2002 - April 21, 2015.

Genny, and her sister, Scout, were part of a litter of English Bulldogs born to a breeder outside of Buffalo, NY. The irony of English Bulldogs born on Saint Patrick's Day is not lost.

Genesee was named after the river and valley in my native Rochester, NY.

Genny was always an affectionate, but stubborn companion. She always liked to be close to her family, cuddling, licking & lying on her back. She seldom liked long walks, or runs and preferred her time inside the most. Although, she never passed up a chance to lay in the sun.

When Genny was just a pup, we visited Plum Island, and seeing all the sand, and not knowing what it was, she proceeded to eat much of the beach and in our family lore, we blame her for the rapid erosion of the Island that the Army Corp of Engineers is trying to save a decade later.

Genny was always well mannered - sit, stay, paw, other paw - and when we went to obedience class it wasn't until week 5 that we/she actually learned anything that we/she didn't already know - it was nice that she was head of her class. Why? Because when we tried doggie day care months later, she was kicked out on her first day for pinning a couple of small dogs down. You see, Genny felt she was an equal to all bigger dogs, alpha to all smaller ones and there was no teaching her otherwise.

Genny was a legendary snorer. Louder than anyone from the extended family, which is really saying something. Often her snores would wake us, and it was not uncommon for her snores to actually shake things on the wall.

Genesee was part of our family for thirteen (13) years, and she will be missed. Our logo ensures us that we will never forget her.
