This is an oldie, but a goodie...
"I Believe I Can Fly" by R Kelly

I believe I can fly
I believe I can touch the sky
I think about it every night and day
Spread my wings and fly away
I believe I can soar
I see me running through that [off-leash park]
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly
I believe I can fly

"Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus
...but Ridge's version

So I put my ears up
They're playin' my song, the butterflies fly away
I'm shakin' my head like, 'yeah'
Waggin' my tail like, 'yeah'
Got my tongue out, they're playing my song
They know I'm gonna be okay
Yeah, it's a party at Dog Star Ranch
Yeah, it's a party at Dog Star Ranch

Gracie: Can we help you?
Human: I was just checking to see what you guys were up to...
Gracie: Yeah...umm...this is a private gathering, so we're gonna have to ask you to leave.

sun reflecting in the pond
shadow reaching out in front
ear tips dip into the cool water
as body wades to shore
sunny and 80°
not a cloud in sight
the perfect day
to take a trip to Cody's Cove
for a swim

mostly cloudy and 75°
we called to the sun at 6am
watched it rise at 6:21
it sat in the sky
and watched us play
from 10am until into the afternoon
as fur-friends go home
between 2:30pm-6:30pm
reminder to boarding dogs:
dinner is served at 3:30pm
last community play before 9
until tomorrow morning
it is goodbye, goodnight, & sweet dreams
to all of our fur-friends tucked in tight

Mochi: Lilly, the very second that I saw you I knew that it was love at first sight! The very second that I sniffed you I knew that you were my soul mate. The very second that we played together there was such an undeniable energy between us. When we are at Dog Star together we are inseparable. When I am away from you my heart reaches for you. My love for you is a light that will never burn out. You are my world, my everything. Today I get to marry my best friend. From this day forward you and I will go through life as husband and wife. Lilly, you mean the world to me and I will forever honor you!

Lilly: Mochi, I am over the moon in love with you! I love that you don't mind when I eat all my snacks and then yours too. I love that you don't mind when I hog the couch...or all the snacks, oh wait, I already mentioned that part. You have made me a better pup and I cannot wait to move forward with life with you by my side.

Star Buddy Officiant: Mochi, do you take Lilly to be your lawfully wedded wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health...

Mochi: I do.

Star Buddy Officiant: Lilly, do you take Mochi to be your lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health...

Lilly: I do.

Star Buddy Officiant: I now pronounce you husband and wife! You may kiss the bride!


We wish the happy couple nothing but pure bliss!

*Lilly dances as she sings...*

"Chapel of Love" by The Dixie Cups

Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love
Spring is here, the sky is blue, whoa-oh-oh
Birds all sing as if they knew
[Tomorrow's] the day we'll say "I do"
And we'll never be lonely anymore
Because we're goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married
Gee, I really love you
And we're gonna get married
Goin' to the chapel of love
Bells will ring, the sun will shine, whoa-oh-oh
I'll be his and he'll be mine
We'll love until the end of time
And we'll never be lonely anymore because...

Star Buddy: Who are you getting married to?
Lilly: Mochi!
Star Buddy: Looks like we are having a Dog Star Ranch wedding!

*Lilly starts to hum "Goin' to the chapel and we're gonna get married" as she twirls around and 'round and 'round*

Love is in the air at Dog Star Ranch!

Ask Lily!

Dear Lily,

Help! I’m worried that my hooman no longer loves me as much as they use to. Ever since we went to the vet they’ve started feeding me less and stopped giving me so many treats! I personally blame the vet for corrupting my poor, dear sweet hoomans. The vet told them that I needed to go on a diet! How do I get my hooman to start feeding me more and giving me treats again?

Sincerely,
Hungry

Dear Hungry,

You are going to have to just trust me on this with what I’m about to tell you…stop eating. Yes, I said it. You need to start a hunger strike and here is why. Once they see that you are not eating they will become concerned and when they become concerned they will do whatever it takes to get you to eat. Here are a few things that they will try: broth, chunks of chicken, yogurt, pumpkin, burger, etc. The more you hold out, the more desperate they will become. I’m talking about steak and bacon! Home cooked meals! Not only will they be feeding you more, but also I dare say that those are also some pretty good treats!

Sincerely,

Lily
