Love is in the air at Dog Star Ranch...

"My Girl" by The Temptations
Serenaded by Buddy to his Sophie <3 p="">
I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.
When it's cold outside I've got the month of May.

I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (Sophie).

I've got so much honey the bees envy me.
I've got a sweeter song than the birds in the trees.

Well, I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (Sophie).

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
Ooooh.

I don't need no money, fortune or fame.
I've got all the riches, baby, one man can claim.

Well, I guess you'd say
What can make me feel this way?
My girl (my girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my girl (Sophie).

I've got sunshine on a cloudy day
With my girl.
I've even got the month of May
With my girl
Talkin' 'bout
Talkin' 'bout
Talkin' 'bout
My girl
Ooooh
Sophie
As long as I can talk about my girl...

"Dancing Queen" by ABBA 
**slightly modified by Mochi in order to serenade Lily**  

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

Wednesday afternoon and the sun is bright
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play in the park, getting in a run
You come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
The day is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only 5 years old (36 in human)
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only 5 years old (36 in human)
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen

That's right! We got in on the Solar Eclipse hype!

In honor of The Great American Eclipse here are some fun facts:

1. This will be the first total solar eclipse in the continental U.S. in 38 years. The last one occurred February 26, 1979. Unfortunately, not many people saw it because it clipped just five states in the Northwest and the weather for the most part was bleak. Before that one, you have to go back to March 7, 1970.

2. A solar eclipse is a lineup of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth. The Moon, directly between the Sun and Earth, casts a shadow on our planet. If you're in the dark part of that shadow (the umbra), you'll see a total eclipse. If you're in the light part (the penumbra), you'll see a partial eclipse.

3. A solar eclipse happens at New Moon. The Moon has to be between the Sun and Earth for a solar eclipse to occur. The only lunar phase when that happens is New Moon. However, solar eclipses don't happen at EVERY New Moon. Eclipses only occur when the Sun lies at one node and the Moon is at its New (for solar eclipses) or Full (for lunar eclipses) phase. During most (lunar) months, the Sun lies either above or below one of the nodes, and no eclipse happens.

4. Solar eclipses occur between Saros cycles. Similar solar and lunar eclipses recur every 6,585.3 days (18 years, 11 days, 8 hours). Scientists call this length of time a Saros cycle. Two eclipses separated by one Saros cycle are similar. They occur at the same node, the Moon's distance from Earth is nearly the same, and they happen at the same time of year.

5. Everyone in the continental U.S. will see at least a partial eclipse. In fact, if you have clear skies on eclipse day, the Moon will cover at least 48 percent of the Sun's surface. And that's from the northern tip of Maine.

6. Totality lasts a maximum of 2 minutes and 40.2 seconds. That's it.

7. The end of the eclipse for the U.S. is not on land. The center line's last contact with the U.S. occurs at the Atlantic Ocean's edge just southeast of Key Bay, South Carolina.

8. This eclipse will be the most-viewed ever. This proclamation is based on four factors: 1) the attention it will get from the media; 2) the superb coverage of the highway system in our country; 3) the typical weather on that date; and 4) the vast number of people who will have access to it from nearby large cities.

9. Only one large city has a great view. Congratulations if you're one of the 609,000 people lucky enough to live in Nashville. The city center and parts north of it will experience 2+ minutes of totality.

10. Totality is safe to look at. During the time the Moon's disk covers that of the Sun, it's safe to look at the eclipse. In fact, to experience the awesomeness of the event, you must look at the Sun without a filter during totality.

11. Nature will take heed. Depending on your surroundings, as totality nears, you may experience strange things. 

12. The future is bright but long. The next total solar eclipse over the continental U.S. occurs April 8, 2024. It's a good one, too. Depending on where you are (on the center line), the duration of totality lasts at least 3 minutes and 22 seconds on the east coast of Maine and stretches to 4 minutes and 27 seconds in southwestern Texas. After that eclipse, it's a 20-year wait until August 23, 2044.

When it comes to manners
Sharing is caring
Unless it is with your brother
And over a stick
Then you wanna make sure
That you steal it back
At every chance you get

DayStar of the Month for July 2017 ~ Maybel O’Donnell

According to Wikipedia, “Irish Wolfhounds have a varied range of personalities and are most often noted for their personal quirks and individualism.”

That’s right!

Our DayStar of the Month for July 2017 is the one and only Maybel O’Donnell!

Sweet Maybel started joining her big brother Bowie the Rhodesian Ridgeback in Daycare at Dog Star Ranch in October of 2016. And although Maybel was only 4-months old when she started coming, she has always been sweet and lovable. This only makes sense because the name Maybel means “lovable”.

As far as Wikipedia’s definition of Irish Wolfhounds goes, Maybel is certainly quirky and she definitely stands out as an individual! Maybel may be the tallest of her fur-friends (and that is really saying somethin’ because she plays with a Great Dane), but her fur-friends are not the least bit intimidated by her height! And even though Maybel is big, she always plays gentle with her smaller fur-friends.

Maybel and her fur-friends enjoy chasing each other up and down the hill out in the Star Buddy Park, as well as splashing in and out of the pond to cool off on hot summer days!

When we first met Maybel she was at first very quiet and nervous towards all the sounds of Dog Star Ranch, but it did not take long for Maybel to come out of her shell and find her group of fur-friends!

Maybel, you are an absolute sweetheart! We love having you as a part of Dog Star Ranch! You have a one-of-a-kind personality that shines as bright as the sun!! We look forward to continuing in watching you grow and learn!

Congratulations!

We love you!

There are two ways to enjoy the pond:


1. Elsa prefers to quietly relax in the shade, observing all of her fur-friends...


2. Or if you prefer to be like Jed and Vlad...JUMP RIGHT IN!
