Take Your Dog to Work Day

Take Your Dog to Work Day

Today is take your dog to work day. For me, it’s just a normal day, because every day in my life is “take your dog to work day”. So today I thought it would be fun to share with you what a typical day at work in my family’s custom frame shop looks like for me.

After the car is parked I make the grueling trek from the parking lot to the shop – and in the winter this means through the snow, and it’s slightly up hill too! I keep telling mom I need a shuttle, I mean seriously, these conditions are terrible!

Once inside I do my morning stretches to get ready for the day. 8 hours of work does it’s tole on you!

Before the shop opens for the day I find the optimal position to greet customers (belly side up for maximum belly rubs).

Sometimes I get bored of waiting by the front door so I have to move around a bit in order to get enough belly rubs to keep me going throughout the day.

By mid-morning I usually get a burst of energy so I sometimes shred things, or bark at mom until she gives me something to chew on.

Then it’s back to the shop door to watch for any dogs walking by that I can bark at.

If it’s a good day, then there will be a good stream of people stopping by that I can wag my tail at, and beg for food.

On slow days I just turn into a sloth and sleep the day away in the backroom.

Well, that is unless mom puts me to work filing paperwork. Sigh.

Then before I know it, it’s time to pack it all up and head home for the day.

I always look forward to the car ride home because when I get home…..

First Steps

First Steps

You are my Sunshine

This first year of my sister’s life has been filled with many firsts (holy cow can you believe she’ll be a year old very very soon), and just like any good brother I’ve been there for most of them. I was there when she laughed for the first time while watching me shred up paper and when she crawled for the first time towards me – so it’s only natural that when she finally took her first steps they would be in my direction!

At 9 months and 28 days Baby P took her first steps across the room to bring me a pair of her cowgirl boots. While no one was able to capture these initial first steps on camera, they did get the next few after that!

In just a few weeks she’s already cruising all around the house now – and I’m the one that can’t keep up with her!

I can’t wait to see what she learns next. Perhaps it will be how to get the cookies out of the cookie jar for me.Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Adventures at the Devon Horse Show

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by RedBarn Products. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love!

Devon Horse Show

Just as I have for the past 8 years, I took a trip to the Devon Horse Show at the end of May. Only this year I got to bring along my sister too! I guess technically she got to go last year as well (inside mom’s tummy), but I feel like when you can’t actually see the ponies – it doesn’t really count!

Devon Horse Show

While I always love sniffing new smells and seeing all the pretty ponies, sometimes Devon can get a little overwhelming for a small dog such as myself. It can get VERY crowded, especially in the evenings – and even on Grand Prix night (when the horses jump super super big fences for the chance to win big big money). Usually mom would end up carrying me around (all 20lbs of me!) when things got a little crazy, but this year we had a different option!

Devon Horse Show

Rewind to a few weeks before the Devon Horse Show, and mom decided that I needed to learn how to ride in the bottom of my sister’s stroller!

Devon Horse Show

So armed with my current favorite treats, these Vanilla Flavored Bully Slices from Redbarn Products, mom made me a comfy spot in the stroller so I could practice riding in it.

Devon Horse Show

Arguably it’s not my favorite place to be, but since these Bully Slices require some intense chewing effort on my part I was able to relax enough that mom could push me around the driveway.

Made with natural beef these chews are a natural source of protein and antioxidants too. I enjoy snacking on them everywhere, from work to home, and even on my adventures.

Devon Horse Show

So how did I fair at the Devon Horse Show when the crowds got bigger? Well the first struggle was convincing my sister that my training chews were for me and not her!

Devon Horse Show

While I did ride around in the bottom of the stroller for a little bit, I still have some work to do to be extra comfortable in there. But it’s a start!

I much preferred to chew my bully slices under a shady tree at Devon anyway!

Devon Horse Show

You can snag your pup some Bully Slices from Redbarn Products they even come in some really fun flavors like French Toast, Peanut Butter, and Vanilla. And be sure to check out my full review on their products too!

Hopefully by this time next year I’ll be a real pro at riding under that stroller!

Little Ones On The Lake

Little Ones On The Lake

Little Ones On The Lake

I bet you can tell by my excited zoomies here that I recently got to go on a lake day adventure!

Little Ones On The Lake

And yes, I brought along my favorite little sidekick, Baby P! Of course she met the lake and powered right in (girl after my own heart)!

Little Ones On The Lake

In fact, she acted like the cold water didn’t even bother her!

Little Ones On The Lake

I was slightly worried she might just start swimming away…..without me!

Little Ones On The Lake

So I had to jump in too. Just so she knew I wasn’t a total wimp.

Little Ones On The Lake

After my fun in the lake I met a new friend. I was so excited to play with him I could hardly wait.

Little Ones On The Lake

Only neither of us could get it together properly and he ran one way and I ran the other way, and our fun playtime ended up with both of us confused and lost. Sigh.

Little Ones On The Lake

After all that fun in the lake I started to get a little chilly. My towel wasn’t quite doing the trick but that’s ok, because….

…rolling on your back in the sun always fixes everything!

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 10

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 10

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

It’s happened again. My little sidekick turned a whole month older! And a whole lot has changed in just one month.

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

Baby P suddenly doesn’t seem so “baby” anymore. She now waves hello and goodbye to me, can give me high-fives, and even claps when I do something extra goofy. (which is like all the time apparently).

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

But the biggest change….Baby P is now WALKING! Yes, that’s right. Just a few days shy of turning 10 months she got those first few steps in. And can you guess what she was walking to? That’s right, me! (I’ll have to share the video later….although my camera crew missed the very first ones…shame on them!)

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

Baby P’s favorite thing though….if you haven’t already guessed….dogs! She loves to “bark” woof woof excitedly whenever she sees a dog (or me), or even a picture of a dog. We should have expected nothing less, because I’m the coolest dog there is and it’s no wonder she thinks she’s a dog too!

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

Now that she’s getting increasingly mobile I definitely have to watch my back…

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

..because her big bear hugs….

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

….and kisses seem to come out of nowhere!

Not to worry though, mom and dad are always right there yelling “gentle” the entire time. Hopefully soon she will get the hang of “closed mouth kisses” and “pinch-less hugs” so I won’t have to be on guard so much. At least I know she means well!

Adventures of Ammo & Baby P: Vol 10

I have a feeling by next month I’ll have my backyard running playmate that I’ve been waiting for! I can’t wait!

So for everyone that wagered a guess last month as to when Baby P would start walking, it was June 5th!Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity
