Helping keep happy pets in West Michigan...


The Pet Pantry of Michigan is a great organization that provides low income residents with pet food and supplies. Even though the economy has been struggling they are trying to make sure no pets are forgotten or abandoned. To learn more about how you can help their cause visit their website. Also check out this great event that they are having August 8!
Also, Dog Star Ranch is a local donation sight for the Pet Pantry of Michigan. If you would like to make a donation to the organization, please let us know! We want to make sure to give all dogs somethin' to bark about today!

Good bye to a dear friend...

Today we say good bye to a Daystar that we have come to know and love. Miss Pippi will be leaving this West Michigan town and heading back to California. You will be greatly missed by all your daycare pals, including your sister, Miss Phoebe, and all of us at DSR. We wish you the best on this journey ahead of you. If you ever find your way back to West Michigan, stop by!

Summer time at DSR

Splishin' and a splashin' the day away...
Lots of summer fun was had by all... A roll in the dirt or swim in the pond... What ever you enjoy most...

The sun is back!

It's a beautiful day today. The pond is open for our summer time splashing and the parks are bright and green from the summer sun. What shall we do today, how about a little bit of everything. Lets go run in the woods, wrestle in the long grass, play fetch in the sand, and splash our best pals in the pond. Once our energy is out and our star buddies can actually keep up with us we will go back inside for nap on the couch, or maybe some quiet time in our rooms. FEWW what an amazing day. All thanks to the sun and warm playful weather. :)

Daycare 7/14/09
Today we journey through the life of a dog at Dog Star Ranch Daycare.
Our day begins as we head out to the parks for our daily exercise. Today, everyone that was able, got to go as a HUGE group because Kevin said we all get along great with each other! During our run…

We ran
We got dirty
We made new friends
We took breaks
We strolled through the parks
We took it easy
We played in the woodchip pile
We sniffed around
We took time to stop and smell the roses
And last but not least,
We had a blast!

After all our exercise we relaxed underneath the canopies and refreshed ourselves by drinking lots of water. Then we had a delicious, well-deserved, lunch, and headed back out to the community yards to have fun with our friends till our families came to pick us up. It’s a tough being a dog.
