Follow along in my adventures as a Super Dog! Everyday I take you on a journey with me, whether I'm painting a picture, spending time with my Trick Pony friends, greeting customers at work, or chasing ground hogs at home - there is always an adventure to be had!
Whenever it’s time to work on training the ponies I’m never too far as I love offering encouraging words to my ponies as they learn new skills and tricks.
My buddy Boomerang here is learning how to be more comfortable on a teeter totter.
Sometimes though, the ponies learn best by watching someone else do it first. So I offer up my skills, and tell Boomerang to watch this as I plod effortlessly across the teeter totter. In theory, watching someone else do it helps my ponies to realize it’s not as scary as it seems.
Although it would also help if Boomerang was actually paying attention instead of sneaking grass behind me! Sigh.
One of the things that I love about the summer is being able to dine at restaurants with my mom and dad. Occasionally on the weekends we make sunday morning breakfasts (which accommodate outdoor seating that is dog friendly) a priority.
This particular weekend I decided to hit up the Green Street Grill for some yummy breakfast.
As soon as I parked myself at the dining table I began to draw attention from the other diners, in particular those that were under 3 feet tall.
If you didn’t know already, I’m a total kid magnet!
Maybe it’s because I’m the perfect kid-friendly size, but where-ever I go those tiny little hands are bound to find their way onto my fur.
And I’m totally ok with being a kid magnet, because when I’m stuck eyeballing mom’s breakfast (that I seem to never get a bite of)…..
….I know there will always be a kid nearby that has their breakfast all over their face and hands that totally won’t mind if I sneak a lick!
Afterwards, when I thought my breakfast outing was over, we headed out to the home improvement store to do some shopping.
Little did I know that my breakfast wasn’t quite over yet, because I got to meet this little girl with delicious left-over food all over her face!
Being a kid magnet is exhausting, but I wouldn’t change it for anything, because someone out there has to rid the world of sticky kid hands and faces!
Sometimes I like to find a nice sunny spot to dose in for an enjoyable afternoon nap.
Afternoon naps are simply the best, but as I slowly begin to awake….
…I come face to face with the lens of a camera!
Frankly it’s a bit creepy!
And I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather awake to a big bowl of dog cookies!
My new friends over at The Eclectic Hound sent me over this adorable martingale collar to take for a spin.
Now Martingale Collars are all the rage right now, but did you know that they were originally designed for sight hounds, such as greyhounds and whippets, whose heads are smaller than their necks and can easily slip out of traditional buckle collars.
The same can be true for Dachshunds and more and more trainers recently have been recommending them for dogs of all breeds and sizes because of their safety.
Designed to slip over your dog’s head, this collar from the Eclectic Hound should then be adjusted so you can fit 1 -2 fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck.
The martingale loop, which functions by gently tightening around the dog’s neck when pressure is applied to the leash, makes it so your dog can’t back out of the collar.
The Eclectic Hound Shop has so many fun collar designs it can be hard to decide which one to get (or get them all!), but ultimately I chose this preppy alligator design, because I’m pretty sure it makes me look extra tough. Or preppy I guess depending on how you look at it!
So if you’d like your dog to look preppy and tough at the same time too, you can save 15% off your next purchase at The Eclectic Hound with code AMMO15.
And now for the best part…..

P.S. Don’t forget, today is the last day to enter my giveaway for a DoggieLawn!
You may remember that just a few weeks ago my pal Trooper and I took the Sleepypod Clickit Safety harness for a test drive. Designed mostly to fit the larger sized dogs best, small dogs were left wanting one too!
Have no fear, Sleepypod just announced the addition of the Clickit Sport Utility Harness. With the same great features of the Clickit, a new design makes the Clickit Sport light and easy to use, without sacrificing safety.
Clickit Sport also accommodates a larger range of dog sizes too, available in small, medium and large sizes. It will be available for purchase soon!
Sleepypod also announced the addition of more products that are now available in the very popular Robin’s Egg Blue color!
You can fetch these fun new products and more from Sleepypod.
