August 31, 2015

No way, we can't really be closing out the month of August!?! 
Where did our summer disappear to so quickly?!? 

Let's make the most of the warmer weather while we still have it because you know that the fall season will be knocking on our door soon ...

Today is a special day for two reasons:
1. It's Sparky's Adopt-iversary
2. It's Sparky's Birthday

Sparky's actual birthday is unknown, so his Mom picked his special day, and what better birthday is there than the day he found his fur-ever home!

Word around the Ranch is that Sparky was named after Sparky Anderson, a great in the Baseball world. I don't know much about Baseball, or the Detroit Tiger's (who Sparky is a fan of), but after finding out that Sparky was named after someone famous, I did some investigating. What I found out was that Sparky Anderson was given the nickname "Sparky" for his feisty play, and what do you know! Our little Sparky is a kindred spirit to this Baseball great, sharing with him that feisty characteristic!

Packed inside Sparky's small self is a larger-than-life personality! Every time Sparky comes in for Daycare, he lets that adorable smile of his sparkle! Hence the reason that some of our staff have come to call Sparkles or Sir Sparkles/Sir Sparkselot (if he is acting like royalty).


Your Ranch Family wishes you the happiest of Birth-Adopt-iversary-Day!

We wish you a HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY, and are so happy you found your FUR-EVER family!

We love you!

HAPPY NATIONAL DOG DAY TO ALL OUR FURRY FRIENDS!


What do #nationaldogday and Dog Star Ranch have in common? ELEVEN years and a whole lotta LOVE for DOGS! How cool is that?!

So in honor of #nationaldogday, celebrate your fur-babies with all the hugs and kisses, give treats galore, and extra-extra cuddle time is absolutely necessary!

We love each and every fur-friend that has made the Ranch their home-away-from-home; their place to run free and roam! So many fur-friends have left special paw-prints on our hearts, ask any of our staff and they will have a story (or two) to tell! In eleven years, we've had a multitude of fur-friends, some as old as the Ranch that visit us still to this day! We are so incredibly lucky to have our days filled with kisses, cuddles, puddles, poo, treats, and tricks! From our puppies to our oldies, we LOVE you all! To our fur-friends who make the Ranch so special, Happy #nationaldogday!!

Share with us your favorite picture of your fur-baby in the comments below!

"So what do you do when it rains?"

Rain Is A Good Thing (Luke Bryan's "Rain Is A Good Thing")

(Star Buddy)
I spent the morning lookin' at the radar
Fussing over the storm brewing on the screen
Dark clouds up in the sky, will there be a thunderstorm?
But in this heat, rain is a good thing
(Luka Interrupts)
Rain makes puddles, puddles make mud
Mud makes us feel a little frisky


A little rain doesn't stop us from having some fun at the Ranch!

Shake It Off (Brody has T-Swift's "Shake It Off" on the brain)

But I keep swimming
Can't stop, won't stop moving
It's like I got this music
In my mind, saying Dog Star Ranch
Cause the dogs gonna play, play, play
And we gonna swim, swim, swim
I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Star Buddy I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
Shake it off
Next to youuuuuu!

Summertime At The Ranch (Parody to Ella Fitzgerald's "Summertime")

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Pond fish are jumpin' and the dogs are runnin'
Star Buddy is sweatin' and fur-friends are swimmin'
So hush, little Izzo, don't you howl
Tomorrow mornin', you're gonna rise up singin'
You're gonna stretch your legs and take to the parks
But 'til tomorrow mornin', Daycare you'll do
With Star Buddies and Staff hanging out with you
Don't you, don't you howl

When you tell me how tired your fur-baby is, I as a Star Buddy feel a sense of accomplishment.

There are several different kinds of tired that can occur after spending the day at Daycare or after they've had a vacation here at the Ranch.

Here is a list I've compiled:

1. "Fall asleep in the car before Mom and/or Dad can even leave the driveway" tired
2. "Fall asleep in the car on the way home" tired
3. "Need to wake me up to get out of the car" tired
4. "Fall asleep as soon as I get in the house" tired
5. "Not even food can make me budge from my slumber" tired
6.  So tired going outside to go to the bathroom is a real struggle
7. So tired staying awake is a struggle
8. So tired being tired is tiring
9. "Sleep for days" tired
10. "Cuddle me" tired

What kind of tired is your fur-baby?

LET'S PLAY BALL!

The collectible card of:

Bentley Goryl
of the Goryl Family

Breed: Chocolate Labrador Retriever Age: Under a year Hobbies: Fetch

The most lovable Chocolate Labrador of the decade, Bentley went into the record books as the most adorable puppy to play fetch with at the pond. The handsome Labrador Retriever crashed into the pond, making splashes during his day of Daycare at the Ranch!

PLAYING FETCH IS A HABIT

Bentley was a natural at fetch from the first time that he came in contact with a ball.
