Can You Tell Which Golden Is Yours?



Wanted To Show Mom How Much Fun We Had : )



Fantastic Friday!







Fairwell to a forever friend...



Today we say fairwell to a sweet soul, Gunner. He was a wonderful golden with a loving heart. He has been a park member for years with his brothers. Yesterday he came out to the park for a wade in the pond and played with a stick then went home and passed in his sleep. He will be greatly missed by many. Thank you for sharing Gunner with all of us at DSR and he will be greatly missed.

Gunner is the second one from the right in the picture.

TuEsDaY, mAy TeN

Meet Mr. Cole. He is an Australian Shepherd that is being fostered through Pound Buddies. He is looking for his forever home and family. Could it be you??
I know that the dandy lions are "technically" a weed, but they sure look pretty all over the parks! Maybe spring time is here to stay!!

Givin' every dog somethin' to bark about!





This was too awesome not to share... Meet Lilly. She had a rough start on life and found her way to Pound Buddies and has since been adopted by her foster parents. She had surgeries to remove a tumor (I believe), is completely blind in one eye, and slightly blind in the other eye. She is a 7 year old Chihuahua. When Lilly checked in to board on Monday, she was very, very shy and very reserved. She didn't want anything to do with anyone (human or canine). All she wanted was to sit in her little box with her blankets. The only people that she felt comfortable with where her new human parents. It took some time for her to warm up to us enough to accept a treat and she is a very food motivated girl.



*



(I wish that I had video taped her on arrival) This video was taken after Lilly had been boarding with us for a couple of days and look at how happy and comfortable she is!!! She is running and playing all around the front office! She is excited to run up to me who she has only known since Monday. Everyone at DSR has taken the extra time needed to make Lilly feel comfortable. She now is enjoying herself, running laps around the front office, playing with us. That just goes to show that Dog Star Ranch can give every dog somethin' to bark about!

TGIF :)

Don't forget to check out Miss Sarah. She is a foster girl through Pound Buddies that is looking for her forever home. She is right around a year in age, possible lab mix.
Have you joined us on Facebook yet? What are you waiting for! We have lots of contests and prizes that will only be available through our Facebook page. Join us today for the first in information and awesome prizes!

NEW Star Social Hour! and some DSR updates! (Do I see Agility???)



Don't forget about the DSR My Way Home Program!

Miss Vela joined our Dog Star Ranch My Way Home program back in February of 2011, but she has been a part of the DSR family since she was a puppy. She started coming to DSR with her prior family as a park member, daycare partipant, and obedience class student. Situations changed with her family and they were no longer able to keep her so we took her into our program. She is a wonderful girl looking, sometimes nicknamed "thunder tail" as it continues to wag whenever she sees someone. She is possibly a boxer lab mix, female spayed, just over a year of age. If you are interested in knowing more about Vela or the Dog Star Ranch My Way Home program, please stop out and see us (and Vela), call (231)766-0444, or check out the blog at www.dogstarranchmywayhome.blogspot.com. Thank you!

Even On A Slow Day, We All Have A Reason To Smile!



New Designs!

Check out these three new designs that we have in stock from Yellow Dog Design!


DayStar of the Month ~ April 2011



Mr. Benny “the Beagle” McGrath-Miller has been voted our DayStar of the Month for April 2011! Benny is a very special boy that holds a big spot in all of our hearts. Every winter he spends about a month with us while his mom is in Florida and he just makes himself right at home. Benny has been struggling with his weight and we are proud to say that with the help of daycare, extra walks while boarding, and extra walks with his mom, Benny is down 5 lbs! Benny is a daycare regular and park member that loves to hit the trails and put his nose to work. No visit is complete to the parks without doing a little fishing at the ponds ;) Thanx for being such an active member at the Ranch and we always love to see our Benny!
