Risin’ Star of the Month for February 2017 ~
Blue first started coming to the Ranch in
September of last year, but Dog Star Ranch has been seeing Blue and other
members of his furry-family for as long as we can remember. It was a great

called Dog Star Ranch to share a compliment that his vet gave him, they were
just so impressed with Blue’s behavior! Goes to show that hard works pays off!
Congratulations Blue on being nominated for
the Risin’ Star of the Month for February 2017!
