How I Spent My Christmas

05 Jan Posted by in Adventure, Dog Days of Cheer | 4 comments

So I’m back from my mini holiday vacation, and I don’t know about you, but mine wasn’t far long enough!

And while I very much enjoyed “unplugging” for a bit, I just couldn’t wait to share with you all the adventures I had while I was gone. I have so much to share from hiking trips, to airplane rides, and adventures with friends, but before I get to all that, lets start off where I left off….Christmas Eve!

So on Christmas Eve, after I finished working a 1/2 day at the shop with mom, it was time for a little adventure.

First stop on my adventure, was a pit-stop at the Pretzel Factory. My only gripe, they didn’t sell dog cookies.

But not to worry, because we arrived at my local Pet Valu just in time to do a little pre-Christmas shopping.

And guess who was doing some last minute shopping himself? That’s right, I got to whisper my Christmas list into Good Old St. Nick’s ear on Christmas Eve! And he assured me that I didn’t make the naughty list……phew!

And boy was he right, because when I awoke on Christmas morning there was a whole pile of goodies under the tree for me!

I’m pretty much an expert at present unwrapping, and I wasted no time diving right into my gifts!

The first item to reach my wrath – my December Barkbox! And just like every other month it has arrived at my doorstep, it did not disappoint!

And if your pup is wishing it received these goodies (plus the adorable bandana you’ll see me wearing later), don’t worry, you have until January 10th to snag your pup a Barkbox for 10% off with code AMMO5

Under my tree was also this super cool Himalayan dog chew with a Ruffhides wrap from the Barkshop.

Curses that Ruffhides wrap really slowed down my chewing, to which mom said yay! and I said aw man!

Santa must have been peeking over my shoulder when I was in Pet Valu on Christmas Eve, because he snagged me one of these mini Benebones….my favorite!

My mom and dad also got me one of these nifty travel bags for my dog food from Harry Barker – I can’t wait to take it along on my next camping trip!

They also got me a package of my very favorite treats, these organic chicken treats from Plato.

Santa also brought me a couple of lounge collars in my favorite color teal, so I can keep a few in all my favorite places – the farm and the shop.

And last but not least, my friends at Chewy.com sent me these Texas Toothpicks. They are made from pure beef tail and provide both a crunchy and chewy treat that help keep teeth and gums clean. So while I’m munching away on a tasty treat – I can feel good knowing my teeth are getting sparkly clean!

After a fun morning at home with my family I packed up and headed out to the farm.

I was so excited to spend Christmas day on the farm with my pal Trooper, especially because he FINALLY moved into his new house!

Of course I couldn’t show up to my buddy’s house empty handed, I also brought along a few goodies for him too like a Ruffhides Chew toy just for him.

Trooper needed a little help breaking it in though, so like the best friend that I am, I offered to show him how it’s done. I’m so sweet like that.

I also gifted my buddy this handmade pet id tag from Tag Me Pet Tags, which I had custom made with his name and the farm logo on it – on account of that he now officially lives on the farm.

Trooper really loved it, and if you want to snag your pup one too you can use code HOLLYAMMO for 10% off your next purchase.

The best part about spending Christmas day on the farm though, that my furry little pony friends were just right outside the door.

It made it that much more special that I could spend time with all of my friends on Christmas day.

Before my holiday festivities could come to an end I packed up at the farm and headed over to my MomMom & PopPop’s house for some more fun with all my cousins and Aunts & Uncles.

I had a blast opening presents with my family.

And even took a few selfies with my cousins!

P.S. Santa if you’re reading this, I really want a pair of those spiffy storm trooper & darth vadar pajamas next year too!

Happy Holidays friends! Ammo the Dachshund

    Boy Ammo! You have been very busy over your break. It looks like you had a lot of fun with loved ones and received many nice presents. I am glad to hear Trooper is finally in his new house. I bet he thought your dog tag gift to him was extra special too. Happy New Year!
