Fern would like everyone to know that she is SUPER HAPPY that the weather was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL TODAY! She enjoyed a nice long run with her fur-friends in the Star Buddy Park, and then to cool off she and her fur-friends took a dip in the pond! She says "Sun keep on shinin'!"

Happy birthday to a special Barkley boy!!



Anyone interested in learning what CHILLITY is all about?

CHILLITY is something that is very unique to Dog Star Ranch.  To get you on the down low, Chillity is Chill (a.k.a. all for fun with your pup) - Agility!  Our two instructors have a strong background in agility both for fun and competitions.  


This class teaches you and your pup how to properly tackle each obstacle individually.  As the class progresses, they will start to put multiple obstacles together as a course and teach you how to navigate it best for what is presented to you.  

** Perk for those who take the class and are DSR Park Members ~  If you are currently taking the Chillity class (or have participated before) you can call and reserve time on the equipment for FREE.  Just call the office so that we know you are out there for safety reasons.  For non-members that want to reserve the course for practice it would be $5.00 for 30 minutes. 

We do need to have minimally three dogs enrolled so call today!  The cost of the class is $125.  The next class starts this MONDAY, APRIL 27 at 6:00 PM.

Dog Star Ranch (California Gurls by Katy Perry)

[Star Buddy]
Greetings, fur-friends
Let's take a trip to the Park

[Bowie]
I know a Ranch
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet and off leash
There's fishies in the water
Sippin' pond and takin' treats
Laying in mud puddles gettin' dirty
The Star Buddy, walking behind
Trying to keep up with us
You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To Dog Star Ranch
Once you hang out with us
You'll be falling in love
Bow-ow-ow-ow!
Dog Star Ranch
We're unfurgettable
Weimaraners, floppy ears
Labradors, goin' swimmin'
Puppies, we'll melt your heart
Bow-ow-ow-ow!
Dog Star Ranch
Gives us somethin' to bark about
Furry, furry, fun
We got it on lock
West Michigan represent
Now put your paws up
Bow-ow-ow-ow!
Fun at the pond
We freak over Dog Star
Doggy Doggy Daycare, oh oh
You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To Dog Star Ranch
Once you play with us
You'll be falling in love
Bow-ow-ow-ow!

April showers
Bring May flowers
Raindrops falling
Puppies sleeping
Cuddled up on the couch
Dee and Mack
Sweetly dreaming.

Miss Daisy, Miss Daisy, Miss Daisy! Is it really possible that you are EIGHT years old already?! You are still such a puppy at heart! You've got so much spunk. We wouldn't guess that you are eight by the way that you rocket off the floor to see out the window in Pup Paradise. You always come in with a big smile on your face, and you are such a hard worker and an excellent helper! We love and appreciate you for all that you do! Happy birthday, Daisy! You are an amazing fur-friend, and fur-baby! Happy happy happy birthday! We hope you enjoyed your birthday party with your fur-friends :)

You've got
Little paws
Big brown eyes
You walk around 
Little nose down
Smelling the ground
Your big ears
Listen to the world
Around you
The sun shine bright
The ground so warm
You love to wander
At your own pace. 

I've got little baby legs
That stand so low
It's all because of my breed
Corgi's are little
Corgi's are short
Corgi's are adorable
We're the sweetest things :)

While I patiently wait for my lunch to heat up, are you going to wipe the drool off my face? I'd prefer it if you didn't, I worked really hard to get it there. Anyways, I have a funny from this morning. So my mom dropped me off this morning, SUPER early by my standards, but I wind up laying on the couch in Pup where I take my post-wake-up morning nap, so anyways, my mom drops me off and I walk into Pup all "Hey, what's up!" and my little lady Star Buddy (seriously she is short, standing on my hind legs I am as tall as her!) is all "Mack!" And the other Star Buddy (she is one of thee best back scratchers, I swear!) is all "We love you! Be our best friend!" Anywho, the Star Buddy goes to check me in and she goes "Mack doesn't exist anymore!" Umm...hello! I'm right here, so yes I do. "I can't find him. His last name is Stuckey, right? S-T-U-C-K-E-Y. I can't find it." I caught on faster than they did, obviously, so I just stood there and stared at them and waited for them to remember. Clearly they both needed more coffee because it took them a while hahaha! As I'm deciding whether or not to let them figure it out on their own the other Star Buddy all of a sudden goes "Oh! His parents got married! He has a new last name!" LIGHT BULB!

It is going to be funny to see how many more times that it throws them off!

 Sir Ben the Beagle turned 8 on the 3rd!
Sir Oliver the Corgi turned 2 on the 3rd!


We had two very special birthday boys last week! Sir Ben the Beagle (who turned 8 on the 3rd) and Sir Oliver the Corgi (who turned 2 on the 1st).

Ben enjoys walks outside in the park with some of his best friends like Kirby, Harrison, Gracie M., and Stella just to name a few! He also REALLY REALLY enjoys taking long (uninterrupted) naps on the couch with his lady, Stella. Ben LOVES anything that he can eat, especially treats! And with that adorable face, Ben sure does get a lot of treats!

Mister Oliver, also called Ollie, or Olligator (I just came up with that one today), LOVES to hang out with his Office Ladies. He tries to help answer the phones and customers when they come in, but they never seem to understand what he is saying, so instead he sits handsome and collects all the compliments that he receives! Oliver is happy to roll over and have his belly rubbed, and he especially loves that it is sunny and warm again!

Happy belated birthday Ben and Oliver! We love you!

Happy Spring Break 2015!


With a fur-tastic bunch of fur-friends vacationing at Dog Star Ranch, some wonder just how the staff does it.  Well, it's a simple answer really.  It's all about organized chaos.  And coffee.  A lot a lot a lot of coffee.

Our fur-friends, your fur-babies are enjoying the pleasant Michigan weather, running along the pond, adventuring around the park, and receiving / giving a bunch of kisses, hugs, and cuddles.  It is a collective "Ahhh, to be on vacation!" from all our fur-cationers!

Jackson on his first day of Daycare, and his Golden Girl's, took a ride in Maggie's Teleportation Device for a quick trip to Furance, where him and his fur-friends tasted all sorts of interesting, strange, and sometimes mighty delicious cuisine! After their picnic next to the Eiffel Tower, Jackson and his fur-friends hopped back in the Teleportation Device and scooted over to South Dogota to check out Mount Pupmore before heading back to Dog Star :)

100 Years

All-weathered
with age
your eyes tell stories
of mischievousness

forever
a wild child at heart.


Happy Birthday, Kirby!

The DayStar of the Month, a daycare favorite since January 2014, is one who always gets a lot of comments on the comedic photos of him strategically placing himself one paw at a time in the muddiest, swampiest puddle in the entire park! It doesn’t matter whether it’s big or small, if it has water in it, this big guy will bound to be lounging in it! You can’t help but chuckle when you see a 100+ lb. St. Bernard wallowing in his own personal sized makeshift pond. We would like to share Sampson Fauble as the DayStar of the Month for March 2015.
