Tuesday DC and Dog Food Information...

Everyone is up at the crack of dawn and out we go. With this heat, it's better to play super early and beat the 90 degree temps that we are hearing about. Summer is definitely here and it came in full force! After everyone has had a chance to swim it's off for a break in some good A/C. Thanx for another fabulous day of doggie daycare!

For the month of June and July we did a special "Did You Know?" We really wanted to hit the big issue that is out there about dog foods and body condition scores/weights. How do you really know what dog food is best for your canine companion? When looking at the ingredients list, what should you or should you not see? How do I know if my dog is overweight? If he/she is overweight, how is that affecting their behavior, personality, and trainability? We wanted to help answer these questions and many more for you. Stop by the Wag-On-Inn and check out our bulletin board or talk to a Star Buddy. Take a guess at what your dog's ideal weight should be then find out the answer. Compare the ingredients of many well known and recommended dog foods to see what's really in there. Learn how to read an ingredients label. You might be surprised at what you find out! If you have any questions, definitely let us know. We are here to be a reference for you so that you can have many happy and healthy years with your canine companion!

It was definitely all smiles today along with waggin' tails! Nothin' beats a good roll around on the ground or a dip in the pond...
With the humidity it was nice to refresh and cool down in Cody's Cove. All the Star Buddies wished they could follow the dogs in...
Don't forget to sample some of our new all natural treats. We are currently sampling the Real Meat Beef variety and the very popular Sweet Potato wrapped in Chicken. Yummm...
Lots of people have been coming in and commenting on the fun new collars we have available from Yellow Dog Design.

Out to play we go and try to beat the rain that may be coming... It's fun to play in the water, but not in a thunderstorm...
And to make the day even more special, we have a birthday today! Today Konig turns three years old. Happy Birthday Konig!
We also had a couple new Daystars join the group today. Luna was here for her first time and got a feel for swimming. Sadie quickly made some canine friends while her brother, Toby, took some time getting to be friends with Kevin.
It ended as another good day in the Daycare books. Lots of happy, smiling dogs and another happy birthday! We always love to see your waggin' tails! Have a good night and we'll be back, bright and early tomorrow morning!

Welcome Back Copper (6/1/09)

We welcomed backed Copper after 3 weeks with lots of fun activities! We went swimming, rolled in dirt, and played fetch. Copper and Franklin really hit it off and became swimming buddies, they swam and swam until the star buddy, Jill, said it was time to come inside. Beene and Izzy wrestled and played like sisters, while Lola had lots of fun playing with her brother Franklin and her new friend Juno. Missy tagged along and played with whoever was nearest. On our second run Ziggy and Zoomer join us. We are so anxious for them to come regularly to Dog Star. Since they were newer, we gave them the DSR welcome, which includes lots of water, mud, and loads of running! Ziggy and Zoomer played with Norton from boarding and crazy Charlie, who was here for a day! Despite the yucky Michigan weather we had a great day at DSR !!!!
