And the week comes to a close...

Hey everyone. I appreciate the patience. With Dogtoberfest coming to the Ranch this weekend it's been a crazy week. So this entry has photos from Wed, Thurs, and today. Next week we'll be back to normal... We hope to see you all here tomorrow. Rain or shine, Dogtoberfest is going to be a big event. We are getting the Wag-N-Train arena ready for all the excitement!
Yesterday, Rusty was here to celebrate his birthday with his friends! He had a great day and we all wish you a very happy birthday!
MUAAAHHH... HAPPY HALLOWEEN from all the Star Buddies at Dog Star Ranch. Make sure to stay safe, visit us at Dogtoberfest, and eat lots of yummy candy (okay, no candy for the dogs, but maybe some extra treats instead of tricks...)
Today was definitely a rainy muddy day, but you all definitely enjoyed yourself. It's a good thing many of you are headed to the grooming room by the end of the day...
Again, have a Happy and Fun Halloween and we'll see you at Dogtoberfest tomorrow! Thanx for another great week of Doggie Daycare!

The countdown continues...

Don't forget! This weekend is Dogtoberfest and it's gonna be a fantastic day!!! We currently have 6 rescues and 15 vendors scheduled to attend (and we are accepting paperwork all week long so that number is going to continue to grow). We hope to see you all there! There are going to be costume contests along with trick contests (with lots of awesome prizes) and a color tour through the nature trails. Just keep on praying for okay weather. Cya there! Don't forget to get your Punk Rock Purple before Friday so you'll be ready for Saturday!

Rain, rain, rain...

Again, we start our weekend off with more rain and cold... Definitely has been a weird fall season. Well, the rain has prevented us from full use of the camera so no photos for today. Couple things to mention though, don't forget to go Punk Rock Purple for the Pet Pantry. Only one week left to show your purple side. This promotion is leading up to the big event we are all talkin' about... DOGTOBERFEST! We hope to see you all there. Don't forget your costume! They'll be lots of prizes to give away and the more creative the better! Also at Dogtoberfest will be the first day that the Dog Star Ranch 2010 Calendars will be available! Need more info? Let us know!

Even the "humans" of Dog Star are going Punk Rock Purple for Dogtoberfest!

Today Pat spent his morning visiting Clear Channel and his radio contacts to promote the big event hitting the Ranch on Halloween! Dogtoberfest will be happening here at the Ranch on Saturday, October 31 from 10am-2pm. He made sure to sport the awesome Punk Rock Purple for the Pet Pantry! Only one week left to add a touch of Punk Rock Purple to your dog's style. And we hope to see you all here for Dogtoberfest! There will be lots of rescues, vendors of all kinds from pet products to arts and crafts, food and snacks, costume contests (the more creative the better!), agility and obedience demonstrations, and end the day with a color tour through the Canine Frontier.

Tuesday, October 13

It looks like Matthew is starting to get the hang of the camera :) Today he brought back lots of great photos, they may not have all the daycare dogs in them, but it's a step in that direction. Everyone had a great day. Some had the perfect day to work on their manners with Kevin while some finished off the day with a good grooming with Carrie. It definitely looks like fall is here and winter isn't that far behind...

A very chilly Monday, October 12

Okay, please be patient with us... We have a new Star Buddy on staff that you may be starting to see. He will be doing the early bird shifts and his name is Matthew. He is doing a great job with all the dogs, but he is still getting the hang of the camera on his runs. The other Star Buddies will bring back the camera with any where from 100-250 photos for me to look at in a given day... Today, Matthew took 2 photos... He's been a great addition to the DSR family, but be patient with his camera abilities. We may need to work on that a bit :) Welcome aboard Matthew!

Crop Walk for Hunger 10/4/2009

Tristan and Karen,

All of us at Dog Star and the Dog Star Ranch families would like to wish you the best of luck on Sunday as you do your 10 mile Crop Walk for Hunger! It's a wonderful thing to help those in need. We made sure to give Tristan a fresh bandana so he can walk in style!

Punk Rock Purple for Pet Pantry...

Today started off with super showers and dark skies so we didn't want to risk damaging the camera in the water. So today I wanted to remind you of the Punk Rock Purple for the Pet Pantry. Add a little purple to your dog's style or if you want a less longterm donation, we have bandanas and bows to show your support. It's just a $3 donation and Dog Star Ranch will match your $3. We have only had this promotion going for about a week and already raised $40 for the Pet Pantry of Michigan! We will do this promotion up until our Dogtoberfest event at the Ranch on October 31! We hope to see you all there sportin' your Punk Rock Purple!
