Max at Dog Star (Parody to "George of the Jungle")

Max, Max
Max at Dog Star
Smart as he can be.
Climbed into a tree.

Max, Max
Max at Dog Star
Lives a life that's adventurous
Climbed into a tree.

When he gets to Dog Star
he makes his "escape"
with the help of his friend,
an human named Star Buddy.
Then away he'll go
on his way to the Park
While the other fur-friends
Stay in their yards.

Well...Max, Max
Max at Dog Star
Fur-friend to you and me.

Climbed into a tree!

Buddy repositioned himself to where his backside was touching Ben and quickly drifted back to sleep. Ben, who woke up to his picture being taken, stretched out his back leg to get more comfortable. And Nova, who started out on the other side of the couch, crept closer to nearer to Ben and Buddy. It was absolutely adorable.

Runnin' (Parody to "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire)

They see me runnin'
They walkin'
Star Buddy they tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
My bark so loud
They hopin that they gonna catch me rollin' in a puddle
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Tryin' to catch me gettin' dirty
Star Buddy think they can keep me clean
I'm quick so it ain't that easy
When you see me run by you can see my smile gleam
Because I'm at Dog Star
Having too much fun to care about stayin' clean!

Hi, my name is Rugar and I like sunny days, sitting on your lap while you scratch my back, and long walks in the park! Oh! And giving kisses. I LOVE giving kisses!

This one time I went Bear hunting, I scared the Bear away with my bark. This one time I ran with wild horses, and they were really fast. I couldn't keep up. This one time I chased a cat up a tree. This one time I became friends with a Squirrel. It invited me to live with it and its family, but I had to decline because I can't climb trees. This one time I rode a donkey, it smelled. This one time I tried bull riding. I stayed on for a whole six seconds. This one time I raced a goat, it lost. This one time I raced a Greyhound, it won. This one time I raced a rock, it won.

Betsy: "WILSOOOOOOOON!"
Wilson: "Betsy! What?!"
Betsy: "I have the best news ever!!"
Wilson: "What is it?!"
Betsy: "It's SPRING!"
Wilson: "Uhhh. I know."
Betsy: "But I didn't tell you!"
Wilson: "Thank you, Betsy, for telling me."
Betsy: "You should be more excited!"
Wilson: "I'm smiling."
Betsy: "ENTHUSIASM!"
Wilson: "IT'S SPRING!"
Betsy: "Much better!"
Wilson: "Why are Lily and Winston just staring at us?"

Winston, Lily, Betsy, Wilson, and all their fur-friends had a splendid day today at Daycare! The weather was beautiful and our fur-friends found a few mud puddles to play in! Spring sure is here!

It's flirtin' weather
roll in the mud
lay in puddles
bask in the sun weather.

It's eat the last of the melting snow
say goodbye to winter weather.

Shed your bulky coats
put away your snow boots
pull out your shorts
and play in the sun weather.

You Know It Is Spring When...

- Sampson, our "any body of water" hunter of a Saint Bernard, finally has a puddle to lay in

- Our Star Buddies no longer have to bundle up from head to toe!

- Spring poop pickup!


Another Bag
by Francesco Marciuliano
from "I Could Chew on This: And Other Poems by Dogs

Love
True, unbridled love
Is looking at what I just did
On the sidewalk
And then picking it up in a bag
I can only imagine as a treasured keepsake
Wow, the collection you must have by now


Swap "picking it up in a bag" for scooping/scraping it up with a poop scoop and add layer after layer of melting snow and puppy land mines, you know Spring is here. Our fur-friends watch with a little delight, slight confusion, and most definitely wonderment at the amount of "treasured keepsakes" we keep finding! It would be quite the (stinky) collection!

Happy Spring!

A Letter to my Best Fur-Friend
by Beauregard

Dearest Max,
My world wouldn't be nearly as bright and Golden if you were not a part of it. I know how fortunate I am to have you as a fur-friend. You put up with my big bodied-ness and don't make fun of my awkwardness. Batman and Robin ain't got nothing on us; we're an invincible team. We wrestle the world with sheer force. We conquer Dog Star's parks in enormous leaps and bounds. Max, I couldn't ask for a better best fur-friend. If I'm being honest, which I am, you're my brother. Sure we aren't the same breed and we have different parents, but we are of the same species and that is enough for me to say that we are practically actually related. Thank you for being my brother and my best fur-friend forever.

Love, Beauregard

Gracie and Wilson

You've Got A Friend In Me

Our hearts are tied together
by an invisible string
It can stretch 
far and wide
an unbreakable bond
that goes beyond time.

I've got your back
you've got mine
Paw to paw
You'll be my best friend
furever.

Lefty: Can you believe this weather?!
Zoe: I can literally smell Spring!
Lefty: I'm just glad that I didn't have to put my coat back on.
Zoe: I'm glad that I was able to have my sweater taken off.
Lefty: And we get to run outside.
Zoe: Seriously. I was getting tired of the arena. Being warm is great and all, but I love being outside.
Lefty: And the snow is melting.
Zoe: AND WE'LL HAVE MUD TO PLAY IN!
Lefty: MUD!

Mason jumped with excitement.
Mason leaped with joy.
Mason bounced with enthusiasm.
Mason, rocketing her front paws off the ground and towards outer-space, wagging her tail with beauty pageant form, and her tongue flopping out of her smiling mouth like a fish swimming up stream, couldn't contain her excitement, couldn't hold her happiness still, couldn't, she just couldn't! What she could do was jump, leap, bounce, rocket, run, chase, and roll around in the snow. What she could do was after jumping, leaping, bouncing, rocketing, running, chasing, and rolling outside was to come inside for a few and socialize (or nap) with her fur-friends, and you can bet that after that pup-nap she and her fur-friends were back to jumping, leaping, bouncing, rocketing, running, chasing, and playing again!

Mason, along with our other first time boarding fur-friends Kinsey, Murphy W., Dozer, Mason, and Sobek are making fur-friends and having fun!

Chain Reaction
from "I Could Chew on This: And Other Poems by Dogs
by Francesco Marciuliano

Late one night
I step out in the yard
And bark
Then the neighbor's dog barks
Then his neighbor's dog barks
And so it goes
House to house
Street to street
Town to town
State to state
Coast to coast
Until the very last dog
Tallies up those barks
And that's how we elect our president

Yesterday was a glorious day, an absolutely beautiful day. Okay, so not quite that beautiful, but it was better than this.

*Gilligan dramatically sweeps his head back and forth out at the rapidly falling snow*

And there I stood asking "Mirror, mirror on the wall, will Spring come at all?" And lone behold the mirror showed me a glimpse of Spring to come. And when I went outside, the weather was nice, the air felt warm, and sure there was snow still on the ground, but it felt warm!

*Gilligan plops down with a humph*

And then what did Mother Nature do? She took it right back! Instead, she decides that it would be more fun to dump EVEN MORE snow on us, haven't we had enough? And if you think that it is a compromise to give us more snow while giving us slightly warmer temperatures, you've got a twisted sense of humor Mother Nature.

*Gilligan glares up at the sky and snowflakes kiss his face. With a grumpy face, Gilligan turns back to the Star Buddy*

I'm wearing a hat made of snow. OF SNOW! There is snow collecting on my head. I do not appreciate this. I tried hiding underneath of Rango, but for some reason he seems to like the snow and wouldn't quit moving.

*Reluctantly getting up and wading his way through the snow*

Spring, Spring come again. Come, come and be our friend...we miss you...

DayStar of the Month ~ February 2015 is Buddy Talley!




Who has four black paws, a waggin’ tail that never stops, perky ears that add so much character to that smilin’ face, and a heart of gold??  This is a very special boy that has won over all of the staff as one of the favorite daycare guests!  Drumroll please….  This month we are so happy to share that Mr. Buddy Talley has been voted the DayStar of the Month for February!  Buddy started coming to daycare and the parks in April of 2014.  Every day that he comes he is always so happy to see his Star Buddies and even more happy to meet his canine friends of the day!  He LOVES his run in the park almost as much as he loves his play time in Pup Paradise.  Buddy gets along with everyone and he is happy to show new dogs the ropes of the Ranch.  We are so very ecstatic to announce that Mr. Buddy Talley is the DayStar of the Month for February 2015!  Congratulations and thank you for sharing your special little Buddy with us!
