Who said
You needed sunshine
For a perfect day
When rain
Makes fun puddles
To splishy-splashy in


Although the weather was not ideal today for the start of Spring Break, that didn't stop us and our fur-friends from getting out, getting wet, and having fun!

Eye ball
Eye fetch
Eye chase
And eye catch
All eye wanna see
Is that neon yellow

Springtime

the grass returns
from hibernation
brown and soggy,
thirsting for the sun
empty bird houses
wait for their guests
to return

the fish awake
and bubble
to the surface
feeding on the bugs
that find it warm enough
Robin's snag worms
from the warm dirt

Springtime
where the sweet sun
kisses awake
the earth

#nationalpuppyday

Back in my day
As a Weimaraner puppy
I was a wild child
Rebellious against silly
Human contraptions
Like doors and gates
Opening them upon my choosing
To let myself and my friends
Out of a room
Or back into a park

Back in my day
I was fast
And smart
But who am I kidding
I've still got that fire
To figure things out
To open up gates
I just happen to take
A few more naps...

The Lazy Dogs ("The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars)

Mack: Today I don't feel like doing anything
I just wanna take a nap
Don't feel like getting off the couch
So leave me and Gracie alone
'Cause today I swear we're not doing anything
I'll be lounging on the couch
Just chillin' with my buddy

Star Buddy: Wanna go for a run?
Mack: Yeah, okay...
Gracie: I'd enjoy that.

Bowie: LuLu and I present...
LuLu: Fun facts about Saint Patrick's Day!
Bowie: We should really wear blue.
LuLu: Why is that?
Bowie: His color was actually "Saint Patrick's blue," a light shade. The color green only became associated with the big day after it was linked to the Irish Independence Movement in the late 18th century.
LuLu: Well did you know that Saint Patrick was actually British!
Bowie: What?!
LuLu: He was born to Roman parents in Scotland or Wales in the late fourth century.
Bowie: Did you know that the Irish take Saint Patrick's Day seriously?
LuLu: So Do New Yorkers!
Bowie: It's a national holiday in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
LuLu: New York City's Saint Patrick's Day Parade is one of the world's largest parades! And, since 1762, marchers have traipsed up Fifth Avenue on foot! They don't allow floats, cars, or other modern trappings!
Bowie: In Chicago they dye the Chicago River green! They've been doing it ever since 1962!
LuLu: That was fun!
Bowie: Yeah!
Bowie & LuLu: HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY EVERYONE!

DayStar of the Month for February 2017



DayStar of the Month for February 2017 ~ Lily McGrath-Miller


Our DayStar of the Month for February is nothin’ but a hound dog barkin’ all the time! She is a very special Beagle with a one-of-a-kind personality. When she is not busy searching for lost treats, our DayStar can be seen flying across the parks (after all it is Superwoman’s superpower) to help her best fur-friend Mochi battle imaginary villains and fight imaginary crime!

We are happy to announce that Lily McGrath-Miller is our DayStar of the Month for February 2017! Lily may be small, but her personality (and her bark) is VERY BIG and LOUD!

Lily has been coming to Dog Star Ranch since December of 2015. When this little social butterfly came to visit Dog Star Ranch for the first time, she wanted to meet all the dogs that she passed! It did not take Lily long at all to make fur-friends, and now she has a large group of fur-friends varying in size and energy that she just absolutely loves to play and hang out with!

For being a Beagle, it is always funny when Lily comes in for Daycare in the morning because she doesn’t make a peep! She moseys her way up to the front, searching for missed treats on her way to the door and as soon as she sees her Dog Star hoomans, her tail just starts a waggin’! It is required that Lily get her morning snuggles in as well! She loves to crawl up onto the lap of her Star Buddy and receive lovin’.

But Lily’s favorite part of the day is when she and her fur-friends get to go out for their run in the Park! She loves to fly across the Star Buddy Park running and chasing her fur-friends, her ears just a flappin’, almost like she is flying!

After her run, Lily likes to come back inside and enjoy a nice nap either cuddled up on the couch or a bed on the floor with one or two other fur-friends.

At the end of the day Lily definitely is NOT quiet when she leaves! She has got so much to tell Mom (or anyone else who is willing to listen) that she just can’t stop talking. Once she is telling her Mom about all the fun that she has had, she sits for her treat because how could she possibly leave without a treat! Lily love, love, loves her treats and would never miss the opportunity to receive (or find) one…maybe two…sometimes three…okay, a handful!

Lily, we are so happy to have you as a part of the Dog Star Ranch family! We love seeing your happy face walking up the sidewalk in the mornings! You are such a unique and special girl! Your goofy personality is what makes us smile! Keep on bein’ the hound dog that you are!

Congratulations on being unanimously nominated as Dog Star Ranch’s DayStar of the Month for February 2017!

We love you!
