Just like my boy Macklemore my mom has been hitting up the local thrift store with only 20 dollars in her pocket in search of some hidden gems.
She’s been coming home from the local Goodwill with all kinds of cool finds for my sister. Those dog pjs are super cute I have to admit. Honestly though, I was starting to feel a little left out.
I probably shouldn’t have spoke too soon, because before I knew it mom had popped two dog hats out of her bag that she had picked up just for me. Sigh, I knew where this was going….
Yup, before I could bark in protest it was a full blown dress-up session!
Eh, who am I kidding. I totally love to play dress-up….especially since I look so awesome in this hat!
I might not look as cool in this one, but at least my head will be warm the next time it snows! (And yes, I’m rooting for snow at least once more this winter, because otherwise I won’t get to try out my new sled!)
I’m pretty sure Baby P is chomping at the bit to play Dress-up with me. Soon, very soon, and in the meantime I’m more than happy to practice in my ninety-nine cent hat! And in the words of Macklemore….
I’m a take your grandpa’s style, I’m a take your grandpa’s style,
No for real – ask your grandpa – can I have his hand-me-downs?
Have you ever found something awesome at the Thrift Store for your dog?
Now that I’m the coolest big brother ever, it’s come to my attention that to be EVEN cooler (if that’s even possible), that I need to practice my “nursery rhymes”. My sister likes when I “sing” to her, and she likes it even more when I dig holes. Well, this is perfect, because I have just the song to sing her in preparation of Spring (aka Groundhog season).
A “Cooler” Version by Ammo
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig in my hole the whole day through
To dig dig dig dig dig dig dig is what I really like to do
It ain’t no trick to get groundhogs quick
If you dig dig dig with a paw or a pick
In a hole! In a hole! In a hole! In a hole!
Where a million groundhogs live!
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig from early morn till night
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig up everything in sight
I dig up groundhogs by the score
A thousand critters, sometimes more
But I don’t know what I dig ’em for
I dig dig dig a-dig dig
Much better than the original song, right?
And don’t worry, if I ever get tired of digging, I can bring in reinforcements. Happy Digging!
Does your dog like to dig as much as me?
I can hardly believe that it’s been 1/2 a year since Baby P was born! She’s growing up much too fast!
While she’s now sitting up and eating real foods, and even attempting to crawl a little….there are some things that haven’t changed one bit…
…and that’s her love for her favorite puppy in the whole wide world, me! (She’s not even embarrassed to kiss me in front of the camera!) In fact she loves me so much that everytime she sees me I get greeted with a high pitched excited squeal. That or maybe she thinks my name is Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
We’re both already planning all of our Spring and Summer adventures…especially once she starts walking and I can show her all of my favorite groundhog holes. So much to do, so little time.
Happy 6 months Baby P! I’m so glad I get to be by your side while you grow up!

So I’m the first to admit that I’m no stranger to couch snoozing. I know where to find the perfect spot at anytime, and I have no problems sinking myself into one whenever I feel like it.
As cute and cuddly as I look (I know, I’m just so stinkin’ adorable), it got me thinking….when is too much napping too much? (as if that’s a thing!)
Well my friends, after a little googling (on the couch no less), I discovered that according to an article I found on PetMD the average dog should be getting about 30 minutes of rigorous exercise (or play) along with 1-2 hours of daily activity.
So how am I supposed to tell if my romps on the farm are enough?
Well, as luck would have it, my friends at Pod Tracker have a kickstarter going for their Pod 3 – the customizable GPS tracker for everything in your life, including your dog!
Now I know what you’re thinking, how is a GPS tracker going to tell me how much exercise I’m getting? Well, one of the super cool features of the Pod is that it also has an Activity Monitor. That’s right, you can monitor your dogs activity or set up sensor alerts and even detect unusual activity right from your smart phone.
So not only is your pet’s activity being monitored, but you can also set up geofences to be notified if your pet leaves a specific area, and you can even record and share your pets adventures.
Their Kickstarter campaign for the new Pod 3 is already fully funded, but there are still a few days left for you to jump on board and get your pet one of the newest models at an introductory price. The cool thing about the new Pod 3 is it now has various add-ons such as sound, light, ultrasonic speaker (hello bark control), XL battery and permanent power dock. You can head on over to their campaign to find out more details on their new upgrades!
So just how did I do with my activity levels for my first day of tracking it? Well as you can see by bedtime I had exceeded my walking goal (what can I say, I’m an active guy), and I was pretty close to my rest goal (we all need naps). But 9 minutes of play? That’s sad. Really sad.
Well, there’s really only one thing to do about that.
Tug-of-war ALL DAY LONG tomorrow!
