The Hokey Pokey

You put your paws in,
You put your paws out,
You put your paws in,
And you shake them all about,

You do the hokey pokey
and you roll yourself around
That's what it's all about.

Puppies

Puppies and puddles
licks and hugs
soft and lovable
just look at their mugs.
A smile on their face
a twinkle in their eye
they're just so sweet
no need to ask why.
Little wet kisses
soft gentle nuzzles
not very complicated
like crossword puzzles.
They arrive with love
and joy in their heart
just wanna share
not be apart.

- Patricia Walter

Happy 1st birthday to Miss Daisy!

Daisy is a first-time boarder at Dog Star, and although she was a little nervous at first, all of her fur-friends (both Daycare and Boarding) have made her feel very welcome and comfortable! Daisy has made so many fur-friends, she loves her walks out in the park and her Star Buddies are so sweet to her!

Happy 1st birthday, Daisy! We hope that we've spoiled you good today!

Rain In Summer
How beautiful is the rain!
After the dust and heat,
In the broad and fiery street,
In the narrow lane,
How beautiful is the rain!
How it clatters along the roofs
Like the tramp of hoofs!
How it gushes and struggles out
From the throat of the overflowing spout!
Across the window-pane
It pours and pours;
And swift and wide,
With a muddy tide,
Like a river down the gutter roars
The rain, the welcome rain!

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882).

Throw Your Paws in the Air ("Throw Your Set in the Air" by Cypress Hill)

Throw your paws in the air
Come on
Roll around like you just don't care
Throw your paws in the air
Throw it up Star Buddy
Roll around like you just don't care

From "She's All That"

[Barks] It's a tennis ball.
[Drum Beats Rhythmically] - [Clears Throat]
[Drum Continues]
Woof! Tennis ball.
Tenn-is Ball.
Toss.
Toss.
You gotta keep tossing.
Can't let it stop.
Never let it drop.
Come on, Star Buddy.
I'm watching.
Expecting.
Never... let it...
drop.
I'm counting on you, Star Buddy.
Don't stop.
Don't... ever...
let it...
stop!
[Panting Heavily]
Sooner or later,
it has to stop.

Today is a very special day for Ligety! And it isn't hard to guess why based on his attire! Because today is his birthday! Yes, yes, Ligety is another year older, but he is still just as young and energetic as he was when he first started coming to Dog Star a mere six years ago!

When asked about he felt about turning a year older, Ligety responded with "At least I'm not no old fart like Bode!" Younger brothers...can't live with them, can't live without them!

Ligety, we have loved being able to watch you grow and learn throughout your years of coming to Dog Star! You definitely hold a special place in our hearts!

Let's see what we can tell you about Ligety...

- he loves all things food
- he wants to make sure that I mention food twice because he really likes food
- no, but for real. Food is life.
- he loves loves loves the pond
- he loves seeing all his fur-friends that he gets to hang out with at Daycare
- he enjoys fancy collars
- his Mom and Dad are his most favorite hoomans in the world
- he loves his big brother Bode
- he loves to get dirty
- and even though they make his tummy feel no good, he just loves to eat mushrooms (not on our watch though, mister!)

Ligety, we love your spunky personality and your love for life! Keep being you!

We hope that you had the best birthday ever being surrounded by all your favorite fur-friends!

U is for urinating on trees
N is for nose sniffing, sharing couches and licking Star Buddies
Here with my best buddy!
