Cone of Shame

Shame on you
For taking my picture
In the Cone of Shame
Do I look amused?
I will now stare angrily at you!

Poor Bernice...it's for your own good!
(Really thought, she doesn't actually mind it too much)

caution when walking
shuffle your feet
snow-coated ground
hides the ice beneath

bundled up from head to toe
the star buddies venture out
inside they come with rosy cheeks
warming their hands
with hot mugs of coffee or cocoa

droolcicles on furry faces
snowballs stuck to their coat
our four-legged fur-friends
frolicking around
scooping up mouthfuls of snow

come inside, come inside
warm yourself from nose to tail
enjoy a nap on the couches
sit for a snack from the staff

Oh Captain! My Captain!
There is snow on the ground
And it's time to play!
Let's run and roll around
in the white fluff!
Oh Captain! My Captain!
It's a Dog Star Ranch day!

DayStar of the Month for October 2017 ~ Sam Ayotte

Our DayStar of the Month for October 2017 has been coming to Dog Star Ranch since April of 2014! She may be small, but she sure is feisty. She is sassy and sweet. She is independent and tough. She can play it rough with the big boys. She has a heart of gold and all the boys at Dog Star love her. She is Sam Ayotte!

There are many boys in Sam’s life, but some of her favorites include: Bowie, Cash, and Sampson. She is always excited to see their waggin’ tails when she comes for Daycare. Sam A. is never afraid to put them in their place either. If they start playing too rough, she knows how to tell them to knock it off. She is a no nonsense kinda girl, which is exactly why we love her! Not only is she a great fur-friend for being able to play so well with others, but she is also helping some of her fur-friends who don’t necessarily know how to play so well with others; she is helping them to understand when enough is enough and how to play properly! Thanks for being a great fur-friend to all of your fur-friends, Sam!

There are many parts of Sam’s Daycare day that she enjoys such as: playing with her fur-friends in the yards, going out to the park for a run, swimming at the pond, and napping on the couch in front of the window in the loft. She also enjoys belly rubs from her Star Buddies. She really knows how to pack her Daycare day FULL of activities!

Sam, you are an absolute joy to have at Daycare! You always put a smile on our faces! We love seeing the excitement that you have for not only Dog Star, but for all the fur-friends you get to play with as well. Whenever you are excited your entire body gets into it; not only is your tail waggin’, but your butt is wigglin’ too.

Thank you for being a part of the Dog Star Ranch family! 

Congratulations!

We love you!

Dearest Demon,

Tomorrow is your birthday. And you will be six. How is that possible? Soon-to-be six-year-old Demon, your name is deceiving because you really are a sweet angel...especially when food is involved.

You give the best kisses. You have the cutest little paws. You are so patient waiting for your treats. And you are so gentle at taking them too. You are a small dog with a big dog personality. And we love you for being you!

Happy birthday soon-to-be six-year-old Demon! We love you!

Rain, rain
Don't go away
We'd rather have you
Than s**w any day!

Although we prefer
sunshine and highs of 70°
S**w is just plain yucky.

Mother Nature, Mother Nature
send some good weather our way
Give us some more beautiful fall days!
