Star Buddy:
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Sniffin' all the time
You ain't nothin' but a hound dog
Sniffin' all the time
Well, I ain't got not treats, so I ain't no friend of yours

Charlie:
Well, I thought I smelled snacks
Well, that was just a lie
Yeah I thought I smelled snacks
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain't got no treats, so you ain't no friend of mine

as summer comes to an end
before the first day of autumn
we take every opportunity
to splash in the pond,
dance in the sun,
and soak up the warmth
before the leaves change color
our mornings and nights get cooler
and our days get darker sooner.

It's Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Fall (It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas)

It's beginning to feel a lot like Fall
Everywhere you go
Take a look at the Biggby menu
With PSL's and Caramel Apple Ciders

It's beginning to feel a lot like Fall
Everywhere you go
Take a look on Instagram
With everyone posting about flannel and bulky sweaters

It's beginning to feel a lot like Fall
Trees are losing their green
But the prettiest sight will be, is all the leaves
You'll have to rake in your front yard


"The calendar might say that Autumn begins September 23rd, but others would disagree and say September 1st. I'm just happy that I can still see the grass and the temperature is still reaching the 70's." - Axl

DayStar of the Month for August 2018 ~ Newt Johnson

Unanimously voted by his beloved hoomans at Dog Star Ranch, our DayStar of the Month is truly one of a kind and like no other. Do not be fooled by his tiny stature because although he is short, he is also tough! Our DayStar of the Month for August 2018 is THE ONE AND ONLY Newt Johnson!

Newt first started coming to Dog Star Ranch in December of 2016 and we have been enjoying hanging out with his spunky little self ever since!

Not only does Newt have good looks (I mean, have you seen the pictures he takes! #model), but he also has a good heart! He loves all his fur-friends and Dog Star hoomans VERY much!

One of Newt’s favorite things to do at Dog Star Ranch is go for his Star Buddy Walk out in the park with his fur-friends (including all his GIRL fur-friends #ladiesman). He loves to run around and play with his friends (including his brother, Gandalf). He enjoys rolling around in the grass and dipping his toes in the pond. When he comes inside he likes to be held like a baby to receive belly scratches, and when you are done scratching his belly, he’ll roll over so you can get his back too!

Newt would never say that he has favorites here at Dog Star, but he sure does love Diane (his bus driver) and Tyler (his trainer) very much! It always makes Diane smile when Newt does circles in his crate on the bus: first, when she puts him in there to come to Dog Star and again when he gets to Dog Star; secondly, when he gets put in there to go home and again when he gets home (it’s his excited circles dance!). Newt also enjoys his one-on-one time with Tyler (mostly because he has the best treats), but also because Tyler helps teach him new things!

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

Love,
Your DSR Family <3 o:p="">

It was raining, it was pouring,
Rusty was snoring.
We woke up
And jumped out of bed
And couldn't go outside in the morning.

We sang...

Rain, rain, go away
You rained enough yesterday
We want to play
Rain, rain go away!

Although it was hot and humid this afternoon we are just happy that it was dry so everyone could go play outside!

So Much Happiness
Naomi Shihab Nye, 1952

It is difficult to know what to do with so much happiness.
With sadness there is something to rub against,
a wound to tend with lotion and cloth.
When the world falls in around you, you have pieces to pick up,
something to hold in your hands, like ticket stubs or change.

But happiness floats.
It doesn't need you to hold it down.
It doesn't need anything.
Happiness lands on the roof of the next house, singing,
and disappears when it wants to.
You are happy either way.
Even the fact that you once lived in a peaceful tree house
and now live over a quarry of noise and dust
cannot make you unhappy.

Everything has a life of its own,
it too could wake up filled with possibilities
of coffee cake and ripe peaches,
and love even the floor which needs to be swept,
the soiled linens and scratched records...

Since there is no place large enough
to contain so much happiness,
you shrug, you raise your hands, and it flows out of you
into everything you touch. You are not responsible.
You take no credit, as the night sky takes no credit
for the moon, but continues to hold it, and share it,
and in that way, be known.
