What is your dog getting you for Christmas this year?? The game has been EXTENDED!!

How about a dinner out?? Dog Star Ranch is hosting a holiday scavenger hunt that would enter their humans, a.k.a. you, for a gift certificate to a local restaurant (yet to be determined)! It will start on Monday, December 16 to Wednesday, December 25 at 6:00 pm. Monday, December 16 we’ll be posting a list of eight clues to different locations within our 48 acres dog parks. The complete list of clues will be available on our Facebook page and available at the front desk. When you come to the designated locations (they will be marked with some holiday cheer), take a photo of your pup at that spot. The clues do not need to be done in order. Once you have all eight photos, send them over in a jpg or jpeg form to jenn@dogstarranch.com. To make sure that we don’t miss a photo, please don’t send any over until you have the completed eight. We will share completed collections of photographs on our Facebook page. Only one entry per human / dog team. 

You can do them all in one day or throughout the week. You can take as long as you’d like to collect the photos, just make sure to email all the photos over to Jen by 6:00 pm on Wednesday, December 25, 2013 to be entered in the drawing. The winning pet parent will be drawn randomly and announced on our Facebook page prior to the New Year. 

This is open to the public and not just for DSR park members! If you are new to the Ranch, your dog would need to have a passing temperament test (one time fee of $15), but you would also get a free daypass ($10 value) to head out to the parks for your first time! Once the clues are posted on our Facebook page on Monday, the games begin! Happy Holiday Hunting!!

Clues listed below:

Begging for a chance
To break that Winter Funk
Then come join us at the Ranch
For a snowy, while-you-mosey, scavenger hunt!

Clue 1: 
Once out of your car
You won’t have to go far
To find this first stop of many
Continue inside and speak to Jenny

Clue 2:
To add to your tally
Head to this well-known alley
To continue the thrill
Scan around the hill

Clue 3:
This is no small task
You may need to take a break
To have any chance to grasp
What is really at stake

Clue 4:
BoDean’s is the place
You’ll want to be post-haste
So enjoy this little jaunt
But don’t forget to hunt

Clue 5:
Head out the door
Past the previous four
Go around the bend
And you’ll soon reach the end

Clue 6:
To continue your lark
We head to this park
Central to this locale
You may find a holdin’ corral

Clue 7:
If perchance you happen to glance
To the right as you enter the Ranch
You might spy with your little eyes
A park in which a blue shed lies

Clue 8:
This park is attractive
For your hyperactive
Fur babies and mutts
Now grab this photo and strut

Happy Tuesday!


Winter Dog Gone Waggin' Protocol during Severe Weather

I just wanted to send over a note for all our Dog Gone Waggin’ passengers.  Unfortunately it looks like the winter and the snow might be here to stay.  When weather conditions get severe, for the safety of the driver, the bus, and your furry kids the bus will not be coming to your area if schools in your area are closed.  As soon as we check the news and make the call not run the bus, we will post it on the WZZM closings.

If there are times when weather in the morning was okay, but conditions worsen as the day goes on, we may be in touch with you and do the evening delivery earlier than expected.  We will make sure to contact you if this case arises.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  As we are starting to get into the blustery cold, winter weather, I wanted to make sure to send this note out as a reminder for the winter weather bus policy.

Have a wonderful holiday season!!  Thank you for choosing Dog Star Ranch to give your dog somethin’ to bark about today!
