DayStar of the Month for July 2015 ~ Greysen Terpstra

Our DayStar of the Month is one in a million! Her bright eyes sparkle with excitement every time she comes in for Daycare. And it is hard to believe that it was only two short years ago that this sweet girl came in for her temperament test full of energy, ready to play! We are so happy to share that Miss Greysen has been voted as the DayStar of the Month for July 2015! Greysen started coming to the Ranch in November of 2013. She enjoys running in the park with all her fur-friends, especially all her boys! Greysen definitely has that tomboy attitude, and she isn’t afraid of getting dirty either! Greysen loves to race to the pond, and the only way she knows how to get in the water is by doing a cannonball! Greysen, you are such a joy to have at the Ranch, and we are so honored to be able to have watched you grow into the beautiful, intelligent young lady that you are today! Congratulations, Greysen! We love you!

About the Authors:

Foxy and Mort are quite the duo! Both are Chihuahua mixes who enjoy lap, nap, and play time. They love writing love stories together. Mort prefers to be the typist while Foxy is the brains of the operation.


Pawfect Together
By Foxy and Mort

Buddy wasn't looking for love, but when love wants to find you, it just does. And it did. On a beautiful June afternoon Buddy met her. She danced around the yard, entranced him with her bubbly personality. He watched her from the yard over hypnotized by her beauty, and then she stopped suddenly. His eyes met with hers and he felt the arrow go through his heart, sending a tingling sensation throughout his whole body. He wanted to be with her, be her everything. The fence that separated them threw him into an adorable 7 month old rage. He wanted to be with her, near her, playing with her! And he could tell that she wanted the same. She drew closer to the fence, smiled, he felt himself turn into a puddle. Buddy began to shout "Star Buddy! Star Buddy! Trainer! Anybody! Help me! Help me!" In minutes it felt like days had passed since he'd seen a human. And it felt like it took weeks for the Star Buddy and Trainer to emerge from the building. It felt like years had passed as they unlatched the gate and proceeded to unlatch and open the other. Her yard, he was being transferred into her yard. The sky instantly looked bluer, the sun brighter, and as if heaven opened up, Buddy heard angel's singing. There was a glow about her, she transformed his being in that single moment. He was hers, she was his.

Oliver: Mom mom mom mom! Mom! Mom!
Gracie: I am not your mother!
Oliver: Mom!
Gracie: ...what?!
Oliver: Piper splashed me!
Piper: I did not! I just ran into the pond!
Oliver: You ran into the pond NEXT to me. You splashed me.
Piper: Did not!
Gracie: Oliver...Piper...you're in the pond, you're already wet. What does it matter that you get splashed? I try fishing and all everybody does is splash in and out of the pond, but do you hear me complaining? No. Kiss and make up and go swim and have fun. And how did I get stuck being the mother?
Oliver: Because we love you!
Piper: We love you temporary mom!
Gracie: Love you too...now let me fish.

Marlon Brando starring in "A Streetcar Named Desire"

If you've ever seen (or read if you're a literature nerd like me) the play "A Streetcar Named Desire," or watched the film adaptation, then you might remember an iconic scene in which Marlon Brando, playing Stanley Kowalski in the film, is standing at the bottom of a set of stairs shouting up to his wife Stella, played by Kim Hunter, and Stanley shouts up "Hey, STELLA!" And if you are anything like me, which is an English nerd, then you've probably at some point in your life reenacted this scene from the play/film. I don't know very many Stella's, so I've never been able to go full out "Hey, STELLA!" dramatic hand gestures and all. Until today.



Stella, peeking around the corner in this picture, provided me with the perfect opportunity today to complete this dream of mine. Now, this isn't a picture of the moment, the moment happened at the end of our run when Sampson and Brody had already gone through the gate and into the walkway, but Stella remained hopping among the weedy flowers on the hill.A grin on my face and excitement in my voice, I took my stance, placed my hands up to my face and shouted "Hey, STELLA! STELLLLLLLLA!" And with an equal amount of excitement, if not more, Stella bound down the hill and raced her way to me.

Best. Moment. Ever.

Thank you for making my day, Stella. And for allowing me to nerd out just a little (like a lot).

Like a fish
she comes to life
in the water.

Splashes
in and out.

Swims around
her fur-friends.

She could not be
happier
to be at Daycare!

Elsa: I look mature for my age. I said look, not act. I am still a puppy ya know! I do all sorts of cute puppy things like: licking your legs, splashing water on you, shaking off next to you, and learning not to jump on you. If I do something naughty, you can't stay mad at me for too long because you can't deny the power of my puppy eyes. I'll show you. See, you melted. And I wasn't even going full on puppy eyes!

The Sun
lies.
When it hides
behind the clouds.
Like a cool blanket
protecting you.
And when the clouds
float away
with a small breeze
you are left
with the rays shooting
down
beating you red.
Jump in the water
run under a sprinkler
dip your toes in a trough
lay in the shade.
Or take a page from Sonny
run into the pond
and roll in the sand.
Whatever you do
to stay cool
enjoy the weather
and have a great day!!

[Star Buddy]
May I have your attention please?
May I have your attention please?
Will the real Slim Sadie please wake up?
I repeat, will the real Slim Sadie please wake up?
We're gonna have a party here...

'Cause she's Slim Sadie, yes she's the real Sadie
All you other Slim Sadie's are just imitating
So won't the real Slim Sadie please wake up,
Please wake up, please wake up?


It's hard waking up when all you want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep. But when your birthday was yesterday and you just turned TWELVE, you deserve to do whatever you please with your days! Especially if you are Queen Sadie.

Sadie lives a simple life. Sleep. Eat. Sleep. Eat. Sleep. Cuddle. Cuddle. Sleep. Eat.
Sadie loves to live for food and cuddles. She doesn't ask for much else.

According to Sadie's Mom, "It's been a lot of years." Sadie has always been her Mama's girl. Sure, everyone thought that Mom was crazy for wanting the "ugliest, homeliest puppy of the litter," but all the more reason to love her. She is definitely one-of-a-kind! Whether she be rolling is smelling things (probably just so she can come to work with Mom so she can be pampered) or stealing wet towels, Sadie is her Mom's joy.

Sadie, you are such a special part of our lives as well. We love you like our own, and we wish you the best (belated) birthday!

Happy twelfth birthday, Sadie!

Charlie: Lemme tell you somethin' about Husky women. They. Are. Tough. Independent. Fierce. Macy with her one blue, one brown; Ska and Nova with those piercing blue eyes. I can't handle it. Their eyes just pierce your soul. One look from any one of them, and you are their servant. They control you...with their eyes! And lemme tell you, you don't mess around with Husky women. And you can hound them all you like, don't mean they'll listen. You listen to them! But even them being their sassy selves, Bronco and I love our Husky women.

Macy's Thoughts:

"My brown eye is my evil eye, and my blue eye is my good eye. So if I'm ever naughty, which I'm never naughty, blame my brown eye because my blue eye is good, and I am always good."

"Does my tongue look fat if I hang it out of my mouth like this?"

"Are you happy to see me? Oh, good! Does that mean I can jump on you because you're excited to see me?"

"Are we going to the pond? Right, but are we going back in the water? You aren't going to come swim too? Why not?"

"Do you love me?"

"Do you love me when I rub my side against your leg? But you looked hot, so really you owe me a thank you. You're welcome!"

"Do you want me to shake off next to you? You just look really warm. You're welcome."

"I love you. Can I give you a kiss?"

"Oh yeah, scratch scratch scratch my butt."

George felt the Autumn-like breeze beneath his flapping ears, giving him the feeling like he was flying. The freedom he felt was exhilarating, like a wild horse roaming the prairies. He couldn't find his brother, who had hidden himself among the tall, weedy flowers. He overflowed with joy when Dougie came prancing out, tackling him. Finally reunited.

DayStar of the Month for June 2015 ~ Bailey Orr


She shines brighter than the sun; her big, brown eyes just melt your heart. And it seems like it was just yesterday that this sweet, puppy-faced girl came through our doors with her big sister by her side, ready to conquer the world. We are so happy to share that Miss Bailey (following in her big sister’s footsteps) has been voted as the DayStar of the Month for June 2015! Bailey still has that adorable puppy face, and the staff here cannot help but give her scratches and cuddles when she gives them her “love me” eyes. Bailey has been coming to the Ranch since December 2011. She enjoys running in the park with all her fur-friends (she is very popular), rolling around in the grass with her sister, and taking naps in Pup Paradise. Bailey, you are a ray of sunshine to everybody when you come in, and we are honored to be able to have watched you grow into the young, intelligent lady that you are today! You continue to be such a joy to the Ranch!
