Brrrr..... It's... Thursday.... Brrrr....

What a completely frigid day we have today! Weather.com says it's 11 degrees but feels like -6 degrees... Sounds about right! The small sampling of warmer weather that we had over the past weekend is definitely gone and we are back to winter here in Michigan! Due to the fact that it is sooooo cold outside, we wanted to make sure that we protected all the dogs from the chill. So we did all our outdoor fieldtrips in the Wag-N-Train arena. Due to poor lighting, we didn't take any photos in there so I don't have any to share with you today. I can share this though ~ the dogs had a great day despite the cold! They ran and played all over in the arena then enjoyed their down times in the warmer rooms inside. I think the Star Buddies were more affected by the chill than the dogs were!

the brrrr... continues...

After a nice "warmer" weekend it looks like winter is back with all it's frigidness... Today we were able to welcome 3 newbies to the group ~ Katie and Sweetie along with Stella. Everyone did wonderful! Thank you for sharing the day with us.

Brrr...



The sun was shinin' but it sure was chilly to the bone! That winter wind just whipped through the parks today. Because it was soooo frigid, not all the runs were done outside so we only have a few photos to share...

Snowy day at the Ranch...

The snow just kept on falling and the dogs were lovin' every second of it! Did you check out the video from yesterday? Make sure you don't miss it! Dog Star Ranch would like to give every dog somethin' to bark about!

Some quick notes from DSR...

Daycare Participants!
On the cold mornings please feel free ring the doorbell a couple times. It tends to freeze up and not always ring on the first try. We apologize for any that we may have missed this morning. Don’t worry about ringing the bell too many times, the more the better and we’ll make sure to get to you!

Welcome to January and 2010!!!

Well, with the holiday season, we are slightly behind on our blogging. We'll catch up, no worries! Today was a great day! The dogs thoroughly enjoyed romping in the snow... even the little guys!

... although King (or Queen) of the Mountain is always a good game too ...

Looking for a canine addition to your family? Misty and Nellie are being Fostered and enjoy their Daycare and Archie is in the DSR My Way Home program. These three are looking for a place and family to call their forever home. Wanna know more? Just ask!


Take a look at Bear! He started in the My Way Home program, flew through with flying colors, and now he has a forever home with his sister, Phoebe. On the top photo you can see Murphy enjoying the day at the Ranch. With the start of the program only months ago, we have two successful new homes. Let's see if we can do the same for Archie!

Learn more about the My Way Home program at http://www.dogstarranchmywayhome.blogspot.com/ or just ask! We'd love to help you find your next dog through rescue and the program.
