Welcome Monday!

Now this is what happens when you give Jen the camera... I can only go so far from the Welcome Desk to not miss phone calls or clients, so the photos aren't as exciting as they could be. Sorry guys. I ran through at lunch time and got as many photos as I could, but they are all boring, inside ones rather than the usual park ones... I was also able to add a couple videos in just for fun... Enjoy!

(CC, I'm sorry but I forgot to add your name to the photo, but we know it's you!)
Thanx for another fabulous day everyone! It's always a great way to start the week!



This is always a fun way to spend the day (as a human)... Watching two happy puppies play and make friends. Gus and CC had a blast today! These will be two life long buddies here, that's for sure!



Jola, Michelle always talks about how much you LOVE your bath, so I thought I would try to video it and share it. Who could argue, a nice warm bath with a good soapy massage... Any dog would love that!

Want a yummy summer snack for you canine friend before summer is gone for good? Try our Yoghund Frozen Yogurt! We carry two flavors - Banana/Peanut Butter or Blueberry/Vanilla. You can purchase them by the case (6 individual cups) or let them have an individual cup for the Daycare snack! They are only $8.00 per case or $2.00 per cup. Grab them before the fall season!

We don't have all the details lined up yet, but mark your calendars. There is going to be a super special event happening at Dog Star Ranch on Saturday, October 31. It will be in partner with the Pet Pantry of Michigan. Be looking for more info soon!

A rainy Thursday at DSR...

Since it was a bit on the rainy side today, it was a little complicated to get outdoor photos, even though it wasn't thundering and you were able to play outside, that might be asking a bit much from the camera. I think we are on camera #3 or #4 over the years, so we're trying to make this one last... So I tried to catch your smilin' faces after you came back inside from your fieldtrip. Juno and Meggy are very predictable and grab their couch spots right away. The photos don't do you justice because many of you had super sandy noses and wet feet!

Small and POWERFUL!


Quieter day here at DSR, but that didn’t stop us from having loads of fun in the water, sand, and dirt! Today in daycare Chopper, Franklin, Lilly. Lola, Meggy, Missy, Molly, Molly H., and Tucker all had lots of fun with Kevin on their run. Phoebe, Pixie, Tarby, Tristan, and Frankie also had lots of fun playing on their run and hanging out with their favorite office buddy, Carol. What a great Friday =)

Hope you all have a good weekend! – DSR staff

A wet and wild Tuesday

What a great day Tuesdays always seem to be! Lots and lots of happy dogs ready to play and swim and run and roll arond in the sand (Jola). Ready for the roll call? We have Baloo, Beau, Beene, Bo, Buster, CC, Dax, Deacon, Frankie, Goliath, Hans, Izzy, Jola, Juno, Koda, Lilly, Lucy, Meleny, Ramsey, Rebel, Red, Rock, Rocket, Sammie B, Scooter, and Tristan. Let's not forget the Boarding/Daycare combo dogs of Fletcher, Frodo, Rusty, and Sugar along with Boogie, Buckstar, Kora, and Sasha. (See if you can say that three times fast...)
A couple notes that I wanted to make sure to share... Frankie was here for his first real day of Daycare and he did great! He spent a lot of his day getting to know Kevin and learning "dog communication." It won't take long and he'll be runnin' with the best of them. Dax has also been making some good steps. Last Thursday when Dax was here, Kevin did take him on a run with Bo and Ramsey. So he's starting to learn how to make friends! We also wanted to welcome home Dax's dad from Iraq. Thank you for all that you do! Deacon is another one we want to mention. The first day he came to Daycare he was so nervous and didn't want anything to do with his Star Buddies. Now he's making friends with everyone! We always love to see when the dogs get comfortable and are able to enjoy the Ranch!

Starting a new week and remembering a dear friend...

Today was a bit on the cloudy/rainy side so I thought I would dig up some of our fun photos of the Daystars that are here today when it was shiney and sunny out... I didn't find photos of everyone, but I found some happy smiles! Today we had Faith and Hope, Juno, Missy, Phoebe, Sugar and Fletcher, along with the Yarnold kids and Boogie.

Today we were expecting to have some dear friends check in to board with us ~ Henry and Boyfriend. Over the weekend there was an accident so we wanted to say good bye to Boyfriend. You will be greatly missed by all your Star Buddies and friends.

Livin' Up The Rest Of The Summer Sun!



Sorry it took so long for the birthday boy pictures. Happy belated birthday Goliath :)

Happy Birthday Goliath!

Sorry this is a little late, but Happy Birthday (yesterday) to our buddy Goliath! He turned 3 and came to share his special day with his friends! I'm working on getting the photos on here too, but I wanted to leave a little note until they were up.
