A few weeks ago this interesting looking pool* showed up in my
beach ponies’ arena.
I thought, well isn’t this nice, how did they know that no beach is complete without some “ocean”. Just as I was about to take a dip I had a thought…
…what if the real fun was UNDER the pool? Naturally I’m an inquisitive fellow, and you can’t help but wonder.
So a digging we will go!
Sadly the only excitement was in actually digging the hole. So it looks like my new pool will just have to wait for warmer days this summer when I can sun bathe on my beach and take a dip afterwards.
And I think I’ll have to share my pool pass too, because Blitz has been waiting patiently for his turn next!
Are your dogs inquisitive in nature just like me?
It’s come to my attention that I never really properly introduced some of my new friends on the farm. (those two frosty gals behind me).
Now if my friends Etna & Aldis look a bit chilly, not to worry….they actually LOVE the cold because they hail from Iceland!
That’s right, these Icelandic Horses are a unique breed of smallish horses that came to Iceland with the first settlers from Norway 1100 years ago. Archeological digs in Europe have revealed that they are descendent from an ancient breed of horses that is now extinct outside of Iceland, where it has been preserved in isolation.
To be honest, in the beginning I wasn’t really sure they were horses at all with all that wild hair.
But eventually that sassy pony stink eye emerged, and I knew, yup….horses for sure!
One thing is for sure though, it must be pretty nice to not be bothered by the cold! I admit, I’m pretty jealous of their ability to thrive in the cold. At least summer is on it’s way!
Disclaimer: this post and giveaway is brought to you by Bully Bundles. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your dogs will love!
Recently my new friends over at Bully Bundles sent me a package of their 6″ Bully Sticks to try. Now if you’ve never heard of Bully Sticks, then you are missing out my friend!
Now I admit, when I was a young pup I used to snack on rawhides (before my mom knew any better), but Bully Sticks are a type of chew that are MUCH better than rawhides. Not only are they safer because they are 100% digestible (much lower risk of choking compared rawhides), but they are also healthier because they are made of 100% beef. Rawhides typically contain harmful chemicals and are treated with a long list of ingredients.
So I can attest, when you’re looking for a chew for your dog, Bully Sticks are definitely the way to go. Not only will your dog love them, but your humans will feel good knowing they are safe and healthy.
Now the cool thing about Bully Bundles is that you can sign up to have your dog’s Bully Sticks delivered monthly. When you’re a busy shop dog it’s nice to know there will always be a snack around for your work breaks (even if your mom forgets to pick some up at the store!).
In fact, I have a fun little game I like to play to earn my bully sticks while at work…
I’ve gotten so good at finding those hidden Bully Sticks that mom has had to get pretty creative in hiding them now!
The Bully Bundles come in 6″ or 12″ sticks that are between 5/8″ – 7/8″ thick (which are thicker than most I’ve seen on the market).
They’re also made with no preservatives or chemicals and are produced in a USDA approved facility. Hailing from free-range, grass-fed Brazilian cattle, and No growth hormones or antibiotics are used on the cattle.
So if you’re ready to set your dog up with a monthly subscription of bully sticks from Bully Bundles, you can choose between 6, 10, 15, 30, or 60 6″ sticks a month or 5, 10, 15, or 30 12″ sticks a month.
And don’t worry, you can even skip a month or cancel at anytime! The best part is you can save 10% OFF your Bully Bundles order with code AMMO.

Some dogs are born with it, some dogs aren’t. And I can’t help that I was
cursed blessed with this amazing nose that can lead me to a groundhog hole deep in the woods, through thickets and brush, where no one else knows it exists.
My poor pal Trooper doesn’t have this gift, sometimes I’m surprised he even knows which way is up. (love ya Troop!)
Without me the world would be full of unknown groundhog holes, unattended, and unwatched.
And for some reason, I don’t think my special skills are very appreciated around here!
Sigh. It’s an uphill battle for me every single day. The struggle is real my friends. #DachshundLifeStruggle
Does your dog like to follow their instinct?
Over the weekend I visited the park to shoot some hoops. Before I get to who exactly I was playing basketball with you have to first play this happy music while you read the rest of this post:
Why you ask must you play that music? Because not only did I shoot hoops with Dad, but also the lead singer to the band CRUISR….who also happens to be Dad’s old college roommate.
I tried to play it cool and not look like too much of a groupie, but in reality I just wanted to scream and say “Andy States touched my fur!!!” like all the fan girls that meet CRUISR on tour.
Hopefully I came off a bit cooler than that tough!
Not only did I get to shoot some hoops with Mr. States, but I also got to eat SnoBalls with him!!
Pelican’s SnoBalls is this brand-new frozen treat spot that opened up in my hometown, and I was excited to get to try them out.
Not only do they have treats for the humans, but they have dog friendly Pup Cups too.
The hardest part was waiting patiently for my frozen bowl of goodness to be ready.
It was worth the wait though!
Mom made sure to only let me eat small bites of the ice, in case of brain freeze….can dogs even get a brain freeze? Better safe than sorry I guess!
Overall it was a fantastic way to spend one of the warmest days so far this Spring. Do you take your dog for frozen treats in the summer?
Don’t forget to check out the super catchy summertime music from my friends at CRUISR!
