Rain, rain go away
Come again another day
Rain, rain go away
Molly had a bath
And you know she'll want to play
Rain, rain go away
You're making large puddles
And you know the puppies will
Wanna play
Rain, rain go away
Come again another day

A Day at the Beach

A day at the beach
What could be
More fun
Than playing in
The sand
The surf
The sun

Building castles
And rivers
And splashing
In the waves
There's no better
Way to spend
Hot summer days

DayStar of the Month for June 2016 ~ Brunhilde (Hildi) Gunther

The Germanic meaning of Brunhilde is: Dark or noble
The Teutonic meaning of Brunhilde is: Armored battle maiden

In Icelandic and German mythology, Brunhilde was a strong and beautiful princess who was cruelly deceived by her lover.

In the Icelandic version, Brunhilde was a Valkyrie – a warrior maiden of the supreme god Odin. Because she was disobedient, Odin punished Brunhilde by causing her to fall into everlasting sleep surrounded by a wall of fire.

The hero Sigurd crossed through the flames and woke the maiden with a kiss. They became engaged, but Sigurd left to continue his travels. However, Sigurd was given a magic potion to make him forget his love for Brunhilde, and he married Gudrun instead!

Gudrun’s brother Gunnar wanted Brunhilde for himself and persuaded Sigurd to help him. Sigurd disguised himself as Gunnar and pursued Brunhilde. Later, Brunhilde realized that she had been tricked and arranged to have Sigurd murdered! When she learned of his death, however, she was overcome with grief and committed suicide by throwing herself on his funeral pyre. In that way, she could join him in death.


The things you learn when you search Google for a name meaning! Our DayStar of the Month for June 2016 is definitely noble, and she could definitely be a beautiful armored battle maiden!

Our spunky Hildi and her brother Will first came to Dog Star Ranch in September of 2015! Hildi wasn’t quite sure what to think about all of this. She’d never seen so many dogs in one place before, but as long as she had her brother (they are litter-mates), she knew that she could take on anything!

The next day, Hildi’s Dad was waking her up early for her first day of Daycare…and boy did she have fun! So much fun that Hildi and her brother have been coming to Dog Star for Daycare ever since!

Let me tell you a little bit about our beautiful DayStar of the Month for the month of June 2016! Hildi is just a hair or two shorter than her brother Will, but that doesn’t stop her from keeping Will in his place when he tries to playfully pick on her. I mean…after all, she is a warrior maiden princess!

When Hildi first started coming to Dog Star she always wanted to be with Will and his group of fur-friends, but after a short while of coming to Daycare, Hildi was brave enough to venture into her very own group of fur-friends! Hildi found a really great calm/active group of fur-friends that matched her personality perfectly! Every now and then she likes to rejoin Will with his group of more active fur-friends, because that is the great thing about Hildi (and Will), she is such a social butterfly! Loved and liked by all!

Some of Hildi’s favorite things to do with her group of fur-friends is chase each other up and down the hill, and definitely on nice days, she and her fur-friends LOVE to go to the pond!

Brunhilde, there are so many things that we love about you!
-        Your always happy attitude
-        Your wonderful personality
-        Your enthusiasm when you come in for Daycare
-        Definitely your boss name
Really the list could go on! Thank you for being a part of our Dog Star family, Hildi!

Sunny Days
by Latorial Faison

Oh how we love
Each sunny day
We get to run
And jump and play


At home or school
On slides or swings
Inside, outside
Alone or in teams


We laugh, we dance
We sing, and shout
What sunny days
Are all about


On sunny days
So filled with joy
We're always ready
To play some more.
