DayStar of the Month ~ February 2013

DayStar of the Month ~ February 2013

We are very happy to say that Mr. Bear Morford has been voted the DayStar of the Month for February 2013!  I don’t even know where to begin with one of our favorite boys!  Bear has been coming to Dog Star since January 2010 all the way from California.  He was picked up by the Shar Pei rescue while wandering in the mountains and found his way to Michigan with the Morfords.  Bear is definitely a one in a million!  We have never seen him anything but happy, friendly, and mellow.  It may be hard to see with that face, but he’s always has a smile on his face.  He loves all his human and canine friends.  We have seen him squish himself into a small ball just to fit in a chair at one of our desks.  He also has this super cute little hop thingy that he does when it’s dinner time!  It will bring a smile to anyone’s face and its common knowledge that the best way to his heart is definitely through this stomach.  Bear has also some great accomplishments that I’d like to share.  Through the DSR training series, Bear has earned his Canine Good Citizen title and is a Therapy Dog!  Bear, we are so blessed to know you and have you as a part of the DSR park family!  We send a big congratulations over to you as you are the Dog Star Ranch DayStar of the Month for February 2013!

February 22

O the snow, the beautiful snow,
Filling the sky and earth below;
Over the house-tops, over the street,
Over the heads of the people you meet,
Dancing, flirting, skimming along.
