Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I wanted to take a second and ask you all to send out some prayers and happy thoughts. Guy, a little black and white terrier, is a park member and he was hit by a car on Wednesday. He is still with us, but not doing well so keep him in your thoughts.

Its a big day for one of our pups here at DSR!

Happy Birthday Gus!
We hope you enjoy your first birthday with us!

All this change in weather has got all the dogs here talking! Whats better for cold weather than hot cocoa and running, weellll...maybe just the running for today. And with all this extra running around all the pups should be tired out by the time they get home so they can cuddle with their moms and dads.

Spring has sprung at Dog Star Ranch!

Gotta love weather in Michigan... You can never be quite sure what you are gonna get! We started the morning off a bit on the dark and dreary side... which soon changed to lightning and thunder. To keep everyone (boarding guests, daycare kids, and Star Buddies) safe and dry, we took advantage of the big Wag-n-Train arena. That provided protection from the "elements" and allowed the dogs a chance to play! I know, all of you know what that means... No photos for the blog for today. I may not be able to show you how much fun they had, but I can tell you that the 22 daycare dogs joined with the 69 boarding dogs to have a fun filled day! It kept all the Star Buddies on their toes. Thanx for another great day at the Ranch!
Here's a fun quote to send you off for the day...

Daycare 4/5 and what's happenin' at Cody's Cove?

Happy Monday to all our Daycare pals! They all had a great time interacting will all the boarding guests as well!
* * * * *
We also wanted to take a sec and explain what you may be seeing out in Cody's Cove. Over the past week or so, Pat has been out there giving it a good aireation and check over. He has caught some fish and taken some samples to the County just to have them double checked. This will let us know that the pond is happy and healthy to start the spring/summer season! No worries, after the Spring Break rush is completed the pond will be open and ready for park member use. Have a great start to the week!

It was a Happy Easter weekend at Dog Star Ranch!
