Tuesday, Sept 29

Only one more day left in this month and the weather sure makes it feel like it is welcoming in the fall season. With the crazy mix of wind and rain that we've had today, the camera was less than successful so today I thought I would add a special note to some of our special guests. Izzy and Jilly are here today. They are foster siblings to Baloo, Buster, and Beau and they are looking for homes to call their own. Jilly is a beagle jack russell mix and Izzy is a young lab. If you are interesting in know more about these sweet gals, let us know. Have a great day everyone. We didn't let the weather hold us back. Everyone had lots of fun!

DSR is Dog Gone Punk for Pet Pantry!

Dog Star Ranch has gone Punk Rock Purple for the Pet Pantry of Michigan. Show your support for the Pet Panty by having some Rockin' Purple added to your dog's style for $3.00 with your next grooming or bath. Dog Star Ranch will match your $3.00 and donate the $6.00 to the Pet Pantry of Michigan! Long or short hair all able to be colored (washed out after 4-6 weeks). What to see what it looks like? Stop by the Wag-On-Inn and see. All the Chins and Buck are fashionably purple! This is our way to kick off the DOGTOBERFEST happening at the Ranch Saturday, October 31.

Thurs, Friday, and Monday's Daycare Entry

Okay, sorry for the delay in posting all our fun filled photos... Jen was up north for the end of the week and left Carol to fend for herself. I think we gotcha all caught up now. Enjoy!

Wed., 9/16 PHOTO CLIPS

It seems like when I do photos and videos on the same blog, the photos don't always enlarge like they should. So today I did two entries - one with photos and one with videos. Enjoy!

Welcome back to Monday!

Can't beat the heat? Hop and splash in the pond with the best of them...
... or you can take a dip in the water trough like Miss Molly. Whatever "floats your boat" is good with us!

Tristan and his mom, Karen, are raising donations for them to do the Crop Walk. This 10 mile walk helps put food on the table in Muskegon and across the world. If you would like to make a donation or pledge to "Team Tristan" look for their donation jar at the Wag-On-Inn! Best of luck you two!

Good Bye to a dear sweet friend and the king of his throne...

Yesterday we said good bye to a dear sweet soul, Pudd Essex. He will always hold a special place at Dog Star Ranch and in the hearts of all the Star Buddies. The memories are countless... We remember the days of you wandering down for a dip in Cody's Cover, making sure to sniff every spot to make sure you didn't miss anything... We remember your grand arrival and departure on your mighty "throne"... We will always remember walking into your special room, Pup Paradise, with Max and Harrison curled up tight next to you... You always had a wonderful wag in your tail that will never be forgotten. No matter who came over to say hello you were happy to greet them and accept a belly rub. Thank you for sharing so many of your days with us. You touched the lives of so many humans and canines alike. You will be greatly missed...
"Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and contenct, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together... (author unknown)"

Tuesday, September 8

Happy Labor Day from all of us at Dog Star Ranch! What a great way to start the week! We had a fun holiday to share with the family and friends giving us an extra long weekend and a shorter work week (I know you canine kids don't worry about that, but it usually makes your parents happy)! Tuesday's after a holiday are always hoppin' because we have the dogs that couldn't come on Monday join all the Tuesday regulars and BAMM... We have a jam packed Daycare day filled to the brim with fun and adventures! What more could a Dog Star ask for?! We don't have many photos to share today (oops, sorry), but we made lots of memories... Today we were joined by Aggie, Arie, Baloo Bear, Beauregard, Beene, Big Block, Buster Bluey (wow, lotta "B's" today), Dash, Finn, Ginger, Izzy, Juno, Lucy, Meleny, Missy, Molly H, Molly E, Phoebe, Rebel, Sami, and Tristan (fresh off the Waggin' today!). Doing Boarding/Daycare combo, we have Konig and Ozzie. Thanx for starting your week with us! Cya tomorrow!

Daycare Fun on Wednesday and Thursday (Combo Entry)

Holly's visit to the Ranch...

Holly (chocolate lab) was a boarding guest from the other side of the state. Her family wanted to see how she played in what she did on her Star Buddy Walks so we video taped her this morning (Thursday, 9/3). You can see that after a while she realized Nick was filming her so she chose to tell him all about the fun she had with her Dog Star friends (canine and human)...
