Cue "Vogue" by Madonna

Strike a pose
Strike a pose
Vogue, vogue, vogue
Vogue, vogue, vogue

Look around everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go (look around)
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know (life that you know)

When all else fails and you long to be
Something better than you are today
I know a place where you can get away
It's called a dance floor, and here's what it's for, so

[Chorus:]

Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music (move to the music)
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow (go with the flow)
You know you can do it

All you need is your own imagination
So use it that's what it's for (that's what it's for)
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door (open up the door)

It makes no difference if you're black or white
If you're a boy or a girl
If the music's pumping it will give you new life
You're a superstar, yes, that's what you are, you know it

[chorus, substituting "groove" for "move"]

"Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" by Lauryn Hill

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off of you.
You'd be like heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived.
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off of you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak.
But if you feel like I feel.
Please let me know that it's real.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off of you.

I need you baby, if it's quite all right,
I need you baby to warm a lonely night.
I love you baby.
Trust in me when I say, "OK." (it's OK)
Oh pretty baby, "Don't let me down," I pray.
Oh pretty baby, now that I found you, stay.
And let me love you, oh baby let me love you, oh baby...


"Blue Eyes" by Elton John

Blue eyes
Baby's got blue eyes
Like a clear blue sky
Watching over me
Blue eyes
I love blue eyes
When I'm by her side
Where I long to be
I will see

Blue eyes laughing in the sun
Laughing in the rain
Baby's got blue eyes
And I am home, and I am home again

 Meet Cooper S.
 and Maybel O.
 our newest fur-friends
here at the Ranch!

Today was both Miss Maybel's and Mister Cooper's FIRST day of Daycare at Dog Star Ranch. Both were a little hesitant about it at first, but it was completely understandable that they were both going to be shy and nervous at first. We wanted to make sure that their first day here at Dog Star was going to be comfortable and FUN!

Cooper S. arrived early this morning to be greeted by his very eager Star Buddy who first took him outside for a quick potty break and then she let Cooper hang out with her while she went about her duties. He really enjoyed her company. He later met up with Rango the Golden to hang out in a yard with for a little while. Rango is a great puppy-sitter!

Miss Maybel arrived on the Dog Gone Waggin' with her big brother Bowie! What a ride! She rolled into Dog Star in style! Maybel spent some time up front being loved on by the Front Office Ladies, but it wasn't too much time because then it was time for her to go out for a run with all her little (and some big) fur-friends!

And guess what! Maybel O. and Cooper S. were in the same group! So our two first-time Daycare fur-friends got to meet each other and play with a really great group of fur-friends that made them feel comfortable!

Maybel and Cooper, we look forward to watching your personalities blossom as you become more comfortable and confident! We are excited to be able to watch you both learn and grow from adorable puppies to handsome and lovely adults!

Words I Would Use to Describe Ridge:

- goofy
- ridiculous
- wild
- lovable
- smart
- mischievous
- goofball
- happy
- dopey

Ridge has been coming to Dog Star Ranch for Daycare since May of 2015 when he was just over 7 months old! We have been very fortunate to have been able to watch Ridge grow (VERY BIG) and learn (how to open the pond gate on his own). When Ridge is here at Dog Star, he is nonstop having fun! Whether he is out in a yard playing with his fur-friends, out in the park running and playing, trying to open the pond gate or asking his Star Buddy to do it for him, Ridge is always finding some way to entertain himself and his fur-friends! He is a big goofball who constantly knows how to make his Human friends smile. Ridge, we love you!

Happy 2nd birthday, Ridge! We hope your day was just as special as you are! We love you to pieces! And here is to being able to celebrate many more! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

#worldsmileday

For those that have Facebook, this morning we were all informed that it was World Smile Day and to SMILE! But how many of you (myself included) didn't know that A. World Smile Day existed and B. what World Smile Day was even about. I mean how many quirky/unique/odd/pointless days are out there? Just this past Monday it was National Boyfriend Day (National Girlfriend Day is apparently August 1st), but according to www.holidayscalendar.com per my Google search for "weird national day celebrations" there are 274 weird holidays. It doesn't help that March 26th is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day. Just some of my favorites that I came across include:

- National Rubber Duckie Day (January 10)
- National Dress Up Your Pet Day (January 14)
- Panic Day (March 9)
- National Alien Abductions Day (March 20)
- National Fun Day/Fun at Work Day (April 1)
- Embrace Your Geekness Day (July 13)
- National Lasagna Day ( July 29)
- National Cheesecake Day (July 30)
- National Watermelon Day (August 3)
- International Lefthander's Day (August 13)
- National Dog Day (August 26)
- Elephant Appreciation Day (September 22)

But that is just to name a few, and I am getting off subject, swept up in the world of weird national day celebrations.

Today is World Smile Day and here is what I learned:

World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday of the month in October every year. It was coined and initiated by Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts. Did you know that Harvey Ball is actually known for having created the Smiley Face in 1963. I'm talk about THEE SMILEY FACE!


Harvey Ball created this infamous Smiley Face. However, as the years passed Harvey Ball became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol. His original meaning and intent had become lost, and with that he created the idea for World Smile Day. "He thought that we, all of us, should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. The Smiley Face knows no politics, no geography, and no religion. Harvey's idea was that for at least one day each year, neither should we" (www.worldsmileday.com).


Much like the Smiley Face, our fur-babies/friends devote every day of every month of every year to making us smile. So on World Smile Day "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile." Together we can improve the world, one smile at a time. Our fur-babies/friends do it for us every day, we can do it for one day, and one more day and one more day and one more day! Spread kindness! It's contagious!

Star Buddy: What have you done today, Egon?
Egon: Well, I've had a rather exhausting day! My Star Buddy woke me up at 6:00 this morning. I was under the impression that I was on vacation and yet here I am waking up before the sun! I shouldn't complain because once I was up I realized that I need to go...well, go to the bathroom if you must know! After, I was served a delicious meal that I gobbled right up! I went for my morning walk, enjoyed the new smells and found some old ones back. After my walk, boy were my paws tired! My Star Buddy brought me to my favorite couch and I convinced her to scratch my back. Puppy dog eyes! I've still got 'em! For the rest of the morning I lounged around, napped here and there, window watched. My Star Buddy took me out for a potty break and I requested immediately after to go back to my favorite couch. I mean, I tell ya, the service here is wonderful! I feel so loved and so pampered! I don't know, Mom and Dad, I think you might need to just move in here because I might never want to leave! I'm only kidding, I promise. I miss you both! So yeah, you see Star Buddy, I've had a VERY busy day!
