ammo the dachshund blogging outdoors

It’s been 7 whole years since I published my very first blog post on this blog. That’s over 1,600 stories and adventures that I’ve shared over the years. A lot has happened in those 7 years, I became a certified therapy dog, I celebrated countless Birthdays, I hunted many groundhogs, and I even welcomed my little sister into the world.

Meet My Sister // Ammo gets a sibling

What started as a Facebook page for me to share my happenings with everyone, turned into this blog as my fans wanted to hear even more about my life! From welcoming customers at the family frame shop, to performing with my famous trick pony friends, and my adventurous weekends with my mom and dad – you’ve pretty much seen it all.

While I absolutely love sharing my daily life with all of you, after 7 years of documenting my every move I’m starting to feel like I need a little vacation.

Thanksgiving Roadtrip: Folly Beach Dogs

So while I’m technically not going anywhere, I am planning to take a little step back from my blog so that I can soak up all the fun with my family without feeling like I need to snap photos every step of the way.

Now this doesn’t mean you won’t see any blog posts from me in the future, it just means for now my regular posting schedule of Monday, Wednesday, Friday every week won’t be around. Instead I plan to share when I’ve got something that I just can’t wait to tell you about. You know, the juicy stuff.

Goats that Race

And even though I won’t have a new blog post as often, you can still follow me on Facebook & Instagram where I still plan to share little snapshots into my life more regularly. If you’d like to be the first to know when I do have a special blog post to share, make sure you’ve signed up for my E-Mail updates. Which means you’ll get an e-mail every time I publish a new blog post.

Finally I wanted to say Thank You. Thank you to all of you who have kept up with my adventures, whether it be occasionally, or every single day. Know that it’s you that have kept me blogging these past 7 years. I’ve read every single comment you’ve left me, and every e-mail you’ve sent. I treasure all of them, even if I don’t always have the time to respond. Hopefully you can understand my need for a vacation from the blog after all these years.

Our journey never ends. My next adventure is just around the corner, and I can hear it calling. xoxo, Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

  73. Jane08-03-17

    Hi Ammo! I guess you need a break to help teach Baby P all she needs to know. Glad you will still post now and then when something big happens. I always liked how you would share your birthday week with all your friends because you are a very giving little dachshund boy. I even won a painting you did a few years back and I love it! I also appreciate how you share where you get your gear. My Sambo has gotten many needed things you have let us know about. Stay safe and happy!
    Jane and Sambo

  74. Terri08-04-17

    Ammo…We have so enjoyed reading about you and all of your adventures.We have been dachshund parents for many years and it is so delightful to read about what you have been up to ie: digging, hunting for whatever, napping, soaking up the sun, rolling in something…the list is endless. Yes we will keep up with you on IG (we did like today’s snap) and FB. And who knows…once a writer always a writer…that pen may call you back! At any rate…enjoy your time…it goes tooooo fast! Hugs to you and your family! The Stavigs
