DOGS OF INNOVATIVE – FERGIE
My name is Fergie and I am a miniature pinscher rescue. Yes, that’s me winking in the picture above! In my previous life I was referred to as The Dutchess but when I broke into fame with my new family my fans started calling me Fergie and I haven’t looked back sense!
DOGS OF INNOVATIVE – STELLA
Pronounced: /S-tell-ah/ and best said by Elaine in an episode of Seinfeld
Name: Derived from the Old French form of the Latin ‘stella; meaning star/famous
Stella is a real catch. She is a thirteen-year-old dachshund that truly breaks the mold. She is very small for her breed but only in size. Stella is the kingpin of her 3 dog mob and she makes all the rules. She doesn’t love tricks, playing games, or playing with toys. She a noble lady and such menial tasks are far below her. She tolerates her associates at best.
She is, however, a master of many things including, following the human around the house, catching all the scraps from the dinner table, sitting on the human’s feet, burrowing under the blankets, laying in the sun and is strong hoarder of all the bones. Her ideal date would be laying in the sun, enjoying a good snack, and a good book with a gentle pat on the lap of her human.
She is a lovely robust specimen who likes all the treats. She would be a runner but is held back by her short-outturned legs. Lucky for her they are perfectly matched to her long floppy ears. She may be showing signs of gray but those are only signs of experience and knowledge.
She loves her tiny humans and is loyal to their place in the pack. She will protect when necessary (if it suits her and she isn’t too tired), but will cuddle at their beck and call.
JUST ANOTHER INNOVATIVE DAD
At Innovative Real Estate you have probably heard us talk a lot about Family, Neighborhood and Community. That’s because it’s what matters to us and what is most important. We love to share some of our happenings here and hope you will be as excited about it as we are.
One of our Innovative Dad’s has recently retired. Marion Chappell is the real deal. He was a lineman in Southern Utah but his skills go far beyond our Utah boundaries. If you look up Lineman on Wikipedia you will find Marion Chappell. Marion was in the Gulf Coast helping restore power after Hurricane Rita. He had a broken toe and was using only one foot on the pole as he climbed up to restore power. A FEMA worker named Marvin Nauman took a picture of him looking like a super hero and that photo is now the image of the “Lineman”. A lineman is someone you don’t really think about needing until you don’t have power. True hero’s.
Marion is not only a great lineman he is a really great person. He is committed to his family and his community and is willing to help anyone in need. We are super lucky to have Marion as part of our Innovative Family and think he is a great example of what community is. Join us in celebrating him and saying thanks for all the great things he has done.

DOGS OF INNOVATIVE – DUBLIN
I am Dublin, yep as in Ireland, I am an 8 year old yellow lab. I am essentially a 56 year old man, looking forward to my retirement, which is on the horizon. I relocated to Heber in 2012 from Salt Lake for the same reason as the rest of you, the simpler life. In my younger years I was a master bird hunter, but alas as most folks, I don’t get out as much as I used to. I get along with most, except for the neighborhood skunks, those guys really stink! My hobbies include running, relaxing, running, eating, running, sleeping, and did I say running? I can clear a table with one swipe of my tail, what can I say, it is a gift! Due to my large stature, I have spent countless hours serving as rodeo stock to my 2 mini humans. I enjoy catching a fishing show on the Outdoors Channel, but take me to your favorite fishing hole and I will for sure screw that up for you by splashing through the water and get tangled in your line . My perfect date would include a New York strip cooked medium rare, and a full-bodied ale! If you happen to see me taking myself on a walk, honk and wave and then text my mom, she is probably furious!
