nothing brings a smile
to a dog's face
like daycare
at dog star
running through the pond
splashing in the water
tongue hangin' out
tail waggin'
ears floppin' in the wind
dog star ranch
where we give
your pup
somethin' to
bark about!

"Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off" - Taylor Swift

Weekend,
you have been good to me.
Rain or shine,
we had a good time.
I went to the pond,
rolled around,
at snacks,
took naps...
It was a dog gone good time,
but now you're gone
and I gotta get back
to my weekday play dates.
It's a ruff life being a dog,
but don't worry,
I'll be seeing you again.

The Dog Gone Bachelor

First Date Card:

Jessie, I've been chasing my tail looking for love far too long. Do you have the energy to be my furever playmate?


Jessie: Oh my gosh! I got the first date card!
All the other girls: Have fun! Good luck! Be yourself!


*Walking up to Finley*
Jessie: Hello!
Finley: Hey! How are you?
Jessie: I'm great, and yourself?!
Finley: I'm great! Are you excited for today?
Jessie: Yes! So what will we be doing?
Finley: We are going to play a game of chase!
Jessie: Are you sure you'll be able to keep up?!
*Jessie winks at Finley*
Finley: OH! Is that so?
Jessie: Not only to I fall fast, but I run fast too!
Finley: Alright, well if you are ready, let's get started!
*Finley and Jessie have a really good game of chase*
Finley: You weren't kidding!
Jessie: I told you that I was fast!
Finley: I didn't mind coming in second! How 'bout we head over to the doggie fountain for a drink?
Jessie: Sure!
*Both take a hearty drink from the fountain*
Finley: So earlier, you said that you fall fast.
Jessie: Yes...
Finley: Tell me a little bit about that.
Jessie: I'm very vulnerable, I am able to open myself up easily, so it is easy for myself to let someone in. I fall quickly, and in such an honest and pure way...I don't know if it is necessarily a good thing, but I feel like in this situation it is because of having limited time with you...
Finley: Right, right...and I think that that is important. Definitely.
*Awkward silence*
Finley: So as you can see I have a dog biscuit here, so Jessie, will you accept this dog biscuit?
Jessie: Yes, yes, of course!

Stay tuned for next weeks episode!

The Dog Gone Bachelor


Good evening, I'm Rango the Golden (equivalent to Chris Harrison) and welcome to The Dog Gone Bachelor! For the first time ever Dog Star Ranch presents The Dog Gone Bachelor! After interviewing several contenders, we finally narrowed it down to one!And tonight we get to sit down with our first ever Pupchelor, Finley!


Finley: Thank you, thank you!
Rango: How are you?!
Finley: I'm great!
Rango: How are you feeling about being the first ever Pupchelor on The Dog Gone Bachelor?
Finley: Ever since I was picked, it has been a roller coaster of emotions.
Rango: Good emotions I'm hoping...
Finley: Of course! I'm excited and nervous and ready to fall in love.
Rango: What are you nervous about?
Finley: *chuckles* ...that that won't like me!
Rango: That's nonsense! What are you most excited about?
Finley: I think just really allowing myself to open up and take part in the experience of it all.
Rango: Now, we are still searching for ladies lucky enough to vie for your heart, what are you looking for in a soul mate?
Finley: Just someone who is down to earth, full of energy, ready to play, and willing to share a ball!
Rango: Well...if you would like, we actually have someone who is going to be on the show here. Would you like to meet her?
Finley: Yeah! How do I look?!

Jessie: This all just feels so amazing!
Finley: It's so nice to meet you!
Jessie: Same!
Rango: It's a little awkward at first, isn't it?
Jessie: It feels like a blind date.
Finley: Have you been on a lot of blind dates?
Jessie: Haha, only a couple!
Rango: And were they successful?
