A Dog’s First Day of School

A Dog’s First Day of School

Rumor has it the first day of school is just around the corner.

Ammo the Dachshund gets ready for the First Day of School

Since I’ve never been to school (well technically I did visit a couple of elementary schools, one time my pony came too!), I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

So I put on my bestest school outfit and my reading glasses. Packed my lunch and filled my backpack with all my important school supplies (like cookies and toys).

Since I’ve never ridden the school bus before (aside from that time I went to the goat races, oh yea and the Fair Hill International Event), I decided to park myself outside my house and wait for it to come pick me up for my very first day.

All that waiting for the school bus was starting to make me hungry, and my lunch was starting to look pretty darn good.

And you know what, waiting for the school bus isn’t all that interesting. In fact, it’s kinda boring.

After I waited for about an hour, mom reminded me that school didn’t actually start until NEXT WEEK, and I still had an entire weekend of SUMMER BREAK!

Officially Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Thank goodness!!! Because Summer was starting to sound a lot more fun than going to school anyway.

And it’s a good thing school wasn’t starting yet anyway, because I wouldn’t have had any lunch left!

HAPPY ALMOST FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL EVERYONE! Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

End of Summer Harvests + Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs

Disclaimer: this post is brought to you by the honest kitchen. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your dogs will love.

Healthy, Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs from the Honest Kitchen

While Trooper and I may look hot in this picture, the truth is the warm summer weather will be leaving us soon. With it we’ll have to say goodbye to our lush veggie gardens and the summertime harvests that have been so abundant this year.

Healthy, Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs from the Honest Kitchen

Eating healthy, fresh ingredients isn’t just important for the humans, it’s important for us dogs too. While mom can’t grow everything Trooper and I need to maintain a healthy diet, I want to share with you the newest addition to my healthy diet that’s available all year round!

Healthy, Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs from the Honest Kitchen

My friends at the Honest Kitchen are makers of all natural, human grade dehydrated dog and cat food. Their foods are produced in the USA from non-GMO produce and hormone-free meats.

One of the newest addition to their healthy food line is called BRAVE. This limited ingredient diet contains only six ingredients: MSC certified pollock, organic coconut, chickpea, celery, pumpkin, spinach, plus vitamins and minerals – which is perfect for dogs that may have allergies, or prefer a more simplified food.

Brave had a great fishy smell, which I picked up even before mom opened the shipping box it came in! And all you have to do is add water to this food to get it to puff up to a full (and filling) meal. I look forward to scarfing it down at mealtime.

Healthy, Limited Ingredient Diets for Dogs from the Honest Kitchen

While neither Trooper nor I have any food related allergies, we can certainly appreciate a simplified diet with only the healthiest of ingredients.

Weekend Update – Big Kitchen Renovation

Weekend Update – Big Kitchen Renovation

I know you’re all on the edge of your seats waiting to see how my big kitchen renovation is going….I know I certainly am! Things are moving along at my house. Nothing fast. Nothing overnight. But thus is the reality when your parents DIY 80% of it! It’s a lot of waiting around (on my part at least), and watching crew come and go. I can see the end in sight though, and last week my new cabinets arrived, how exciting! I gotta give a big shout out to my new friend John who did an awesome job making sure my new dog food storage boxes were installed properly. Boy am I gonna be able to fit a ton of dog food in my new kitchen. And when this is all over…..I think I might need a vacation! Until then, enjoy this sneak peek into my life as kitchen renovation inspector! xoxo,

GPS Pet Tracker To Keep Your Dog Safe + A Giveaway

GPS Pet Tracker To Keep Your Dog Safe + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by Trax and does contain some affiliate links. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love.

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

You might remember that at the beginning of this year I started testing out a new GPS Pet Tracker on the market to keep pets (and anything else you want) safe called Trax.

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

This tiny little device that gets attached to my collar has changed the way I get to enjoy time on the farm. Not to mention it keeps my mom from worrying ALL THE TIME (She’s a bit dramatic if you ask me) about what I’m doing.

Dachshund Life Struggle with Ammo the Dachshund

Now for those of you that are dachshund owners – this is a common scene I’m sure you know all too well. You trust “dachshund” to stay close, you unhook leash, dachshund takes off and pretends they can’t hear your frantic yelling, you chase dachshund down, you tie dachshund up again, no one is happy.

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

Now while a good recall is always a good idea, I (nor any dog) wants to listen all of the time (life is just too short for that), and being tied up 24/7 is just oh so sad. So enter the Trax GPS Tracker.

Trax Review - A GPS Tracker for Dogs // Ammo the Dachshund

With this around my neck my mom feels better about letting me roam the farm (which is not fenced) because she can check in on me any time she wants. I’m happy because I don’t have to be tied up as much, and I still get to go on my coveted hunting excursions!

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

Mom sets up a “geo-fence” around the areas she would like me to stay and anytime I cross the invisible boundary she gets a text to notify her and can check in to see where I’m at using the free Trax mobile app.

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

And guess what, it even works underground! Thanks to Trax I’m able to enjoy my time outdoors without the restrictions of a leash. If you haven’t tried it, it’s heaven!

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

Mom even leaves my Trax on me when I’m home alone, and it’s kinda fun to check it later to see where exactly I traveled inside the house. Now while the farmhouse is still too new to show up on the aerial view of the map, you can sort of still decipher that I only traveled to check the side doors and to my dog bed while mom was gone.

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

A fun little tip for all you Trax wearers out there is that since Trax is only water resistant (not waterproof), mom slips mine into one of these tiny little bags before putting it on my collar to make sure it doesn’t ever get too wet on dewy mornings or rainy days.

Thanks Trax for helping set me free, and making sure I get to check EVERY SINGLE ONE of my ground hog holes!

Trax GPS Pet Tracker to Keep Dogs Safe + A Giveaway

My pal Minnow is thrilled that I can keep those pesky critters at bay so he has no scary holes to fall into when he’s playing in the pasture.

You can fetch your own Trax GPS Pet Tracker for $249 + 2 years of free service ($5/month for each additional year). Which is much cheaper than many of the comparable trackers we have researched.

Make sure you check out my full review from back in January with even more nifty features that are available when you purchase the Trax GPS Tracker.

Cat Scratch Fever

Cat Scratch Fever

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

Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy

Recently this interesting looking thing showed up at my door from my friends at Chewy.com.

Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy

Initially I thought maybe it was a new pedestal for when I perform all my amazing tricks, but then mom informed me that this little goodie wasn’t for me at all, but for my farm cat friends instead.

Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy

I’m not so sure they were convinced it was for them either, that is until mom sprinkled a little of the catnip that came with it on the cardboard bench.

Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy

See the Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy.com just instantly draws a crowd! My gal pals Cricket & Spider couldn’t keep their paws off it!

My outdoor cat friends have been using their new scratching bench everyday on the farm. Cricket has pretty much claimed this one, while Spider is still totally in love with the cat play mat they got last month from Chewy.

Catit Bench Scratcher with Catnip from Chewy

Mom said who knew all it took to keep them from scratching up the walls of the barn was a cat scratching bench!

And the really good news is that it even kept my pal Trooper occupied enough that I got to sneak into the barn and steal all the cat food!

You can fetch your cat pals a Catit Bench Scratcher from Chewy, ON SALE for $8!
