DayStars of the Month ~ July 2011

This month we have an inseparable duo as DayStars of the Month of July. Our DayStars for the Month of July is Bo and Ramsey Smaardyk, also known by our Star Buddies as RamBo. These brothers are a one of a kind pair who always come in with a wag in their tails and smile on their faces. They enjoy their play trips to the parks and they never seem to stray very far from the other half. They are the “grandpas” of the daycare group, but they keep right up with the young pups. The boys also make excellent office helpers and meet and greet everyone who comes in, humans or canines. Thank you to RamBo for being wonderful daycare guests and Congrats to the boys for being the DayStars of the Month for July 2011!

Are you looking to do somethin' more with your favorite dog(s)??

Are you interested in a Basic or Advanced Obedience Class? We have a Basic course starting Saturday (7/30) and we are in the process of adding a weeknight Basic class and an Advanced class. Please call (231)766-0444 today for more information or to enroll! Help your dog become a Risin' Star and give him/her somethin' to bark about today!

As an FYI, the majority of dogs that complete the Advanced Course, walk away with their Canine Good Citizen titles and Therapy Dog certifications, just like Murfee did :)

Go, Forrest, Go!

Check out this amazing effort that a local Boy Scout is doing! Forrest Bernhardt is fundraising to raise money for a very special swing for those that are bound in a wheelchair, like his brother, for the city of Whitehall. This swing would allow those who are restricted to wheelchairs to be able to enjoy a simple, fun activity we may take for granted. Over the last year, he has raised $19,000 and is just $2,500 shy of reaching his goal!! Read the full article at the link below! Want to donate to Forrest's cause?? Dog Star Ranch will be accepting donations on his behalf.
