My New Adventure as a Big Brother

Ammo the Dachshund Celebrates Becoming a Big Brother

Over the weekend mom and I arrived at the farm to find a celebration! Mom said it was a baby shower for my soon-to-be little sister, although the way I saw it was a celebration of me becoming a big brother!

It was the perfect combination of ponies….

….and food! (My favorite).

Of course it wouldn’t have been a celebration if I didn’t break of my bowtie! The brother-to-be always has to look his best.

Even though my buddy Minnow was just outside in the pasture, we certainly had to include him in the festivities too. So he was inside in spirit for a pin-the-baby-on-the-pony game.

Eventually it was time for my favorite part of the day! Opening presents!

I’m an expert at gift unwrapping and I was super excited to see what all my friends and family brought to celebrate my “becoming a big brother”.

There were lots of sweet dachshund (and pony) related gifts that were opened but I was starting to realize why mom said it was a “baby shower”.

Eventually Trooper and I started to loose interest in the baby gear so I decided to checkout what fun games there might be for me to play instead.

I was in luck, because not only was there was a stinky inspired game just for me, but it also included candy bars in a “guess which candy bar/dirty diaper game”. I may or may not have gotten in big trouble for trying to steal one of them! 😉

I sulked for a bit about not being involved as much as I would have liked in this “baby shower”, but mom told me not to worry…

…for she says soon I’ll have to test all the baby gear for my sister before she comes. And something tells me mom and dad will be practicing carrying me around in this baby carrier pretty soon!

After the shower I helped gift all our special friends these cute little horse shoes to show how much I appreciated them coming to celebrate my little sister.

Mom, Dad, Minnow, Me and Boomerang (who just happened to be in another pasture for this picture) are super excited for my little sister to get here! I can’t wait to show her where all the groundhog holes are on the farm, she’s going to love it!Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

    You will have so much fun being a big brother Ammo. We have two skin sisters and they are pawesome – they let us lick their faces, they make all kinds of funky smells, and sometimes they feed us their food (sitting under the high chair is the best spot in the whole house!!)
    Congratulations to you, Trooper, mum, dad, Minnow and the rest of the gang.

  21. Roco Roco05-28-16

    Hey Ammo you and I have something else in common – I am a big sister (which is just a girl big brother). It is a really fun job with a lot of responsibilities but so worth it. I just know you are going to be the best big brother a sister could ever want. If you have any big sibling questions, just ask. sending best wishes to you and your family on this new adventure!

  31. Mary Grace Alarcon05-31-16

    Hi ammo, be nice to your baby sister… love yah ammo

  32. Leanora Smith05-31-16

  33. Donna Lauer Bucelli05-31-16

    Great family picture.

    • Donna Lauer Bucelli06-01-16

      Ammo, you must be very patient when our new little sister arrives. Babies need a lot of attention so your mom and dad won’t be able to do or spend as much time with you. Just be patient. I know that’s a difficult thing for my doxie.

  34. Christa Harrell05-31-16

    Congratulations to Mum and Dad, and to you of course, you will be a great big brother!!! Loved this post, and your Mum looks awesome!!!

  35. Faye05-31-16

    Congratulations, it’s going to be so much fun watching you and your family grow! I can’t wait for Christmas this year… if baby arrives by then will there be a family photo with coordinating outfits??? Awesome!!

  36. JanSteve Strickland06-05-16

    You’ll be such a great big brother!! Muskie kisses from your past pal Buddy boys mom!

  37. JanSteve Strickland06-05-16

    So cool congrats !
