It’s no secret that I’m a dog with style. True, I may roll in stinky stuff on the farm while wearing each and every one of my stylish outfits – but at least I’m looking fly while doing so! So when Penn + Pooch offered to add some super cool new gear to my “roll in stink” wardrobe I said yippee!
Penn + Pooch – style for a (wo)man’s best friend, is an online shop filled with the most lovely clothing for your bestest pal, just like the Emerson Hoodie I’m wearing.
I took to the streets in downtown Downingtown to get the verdict on my new Penn + Pooch gear….
I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that I look super adorable – even though I’m pretty sure I was going for the gangster look. But hey, it’s hard not to be adorable when you’re a dog wearing a hoodie.
One of my absolute favorite parts about all the Penn + Pooch gear is their signature back flap. Designed so you can always easily hook a harness through it, this thing is genius…..because who wants to wear a harness over their hoodie? That’s just ridiculous!
Penn + Pooch also sent me their Babe Tee in Tangerine + Native Aztec Print. Their clothing designs not only come in trendy colors, but in fun patterns too!
Bright and fun, it’s the perfect way to kick off the warmer weather!

Seeing as how when I travel mom stores my kibble in a plastic water bottle, I thought the new Ruffwear Kibble Kaddie was something that could totally come in handy!
The top-loading, roll-down closure secures contents and reduces volume of the bag as food is consumed. Kibble is dispensed through the side-mounted food chute. External stash pocket fits collapsible bowls and other adventure essentials.
You can fetch the Kibble Kaddie from Ruffwear for $39.95

Since it’s now Spring I thought it would be fun to make a new downloadable wallpaper for all of your devices!
Featuring one of my original, one-of-a-kind, watercolor paintings in the background this is sure to put you in the Spring-time mood! You can check out more of my original paintings in the Painting Pony Shop!
As many of you may already know, I’m headed to the Spring Doxie Fest this weekend in Maryland on Sunday. I’ll be making the 2 hour trek south to meet all of my friends!
I will be performing my fun tricks for everyone at 11:15am and 2:15pm, so if you’re attending – you won’t want to miss it!
I’ll also be setting up my booth with lots of fun goodies from prints and cards to magnets, notepads and more!
But the best part is that the event will be benefitting the Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue!
So if you’re looking for a fun way to spend your Sunday with a bunch of dachshunds – I hope you’ll stop on by. And don’t worry, for those of you that can’t attend I’ll be back next week with a full recap of all my adventures.
Yay for helping dachshunds in need!
The last few weeks I’ve been busy helping with construction at the farm – most specifically the site of Trooper’s new house.
From helping to install insulation…..
…to helping to make cuts on the table saw, I’ve pretty much become a house building expert! (don’t worry, I don’t actually use the saw, I simply bark at the operators to not cut off a limb!)
Trooper on the other hand is becoming quite skilled at holding boards in need of nailing. He may or may not be sneaking off with a few that he “claims” need shortening with the help of a few skilled gnaws!
When I signed up to help build this house I really was not informed about just how many hours it actually takes to build a house from the ground up. It’s a good thing Trooper brought along his construction bed, because I must admit it has come in handy during long work hours on the farm.
Working into the wee hours of the night to keep the house building on schedule is apparently now in my job description.
With a few power naps tossed in here and there.
Don’t worry though, Trooper and I are quite good at encouraging our workers to KEEP WORKING when it comes down to it!
And thankfully due to our hard work progress is moving along rather quickly now, with the drywall installation going in just this past weekend!
Yup, definitely starting to look like a real house now! I’ve already “marked” my bedroom for when Trooper lets me sleep over.
And I’m proudly wearing my badge of sawdust to prove just how much of a hard worker I am!
Now you’ll notice from here on out there aren’t any photos of me with my Bully Stick….and the reason is I was so excited to chew it that mom didn’t even get a chance to take a photo of me with it before I snatched it away to have a chew. At least not one that wasn’t blurry! What can I say, I love a good bully stick!
Now before I get to my other fun treats I wanted to tell you about how Bartley’s isn’t your average online pet boutique. They have a special way of sharing their purpose – which is to help rescue dogs.
With each order you will receive a tag like this with a cute picture of Bartley on the front, who by the way is half-dachshund!
On the back of each tag is a unique number that can be used on their website to find out exactly what rescue dog you have helped to save!
After inputting the number you will see some cute photos and a story about the rescue pup (and the rescue they belong to) and how you have helped to save them. What a special way to help the animals in need!
One of my favorite toys that came from Bartley’s was the Crinkit Water Bottle Toy. This toy is unique in that you can fill it with an empty plastic water bottle so your dog can crinkle and crunch it without the fear of them breaking off pieces of the bottle.
I’ve been having a blast crunching my new toy, especially when my mom and dad sit down to watch tv. *wink*
In fact all my toys from Bartley’s have been keeping me company these days, mom even spotted me napping with all three of them just the other day.
If you want to get your dog some new toy friends (or even some yummy treats) from Bartley’s (and help a dog in need too) you can use code AMMO2014 for $5 off any order over $20.
And now for your own chance win some fun items from Bartley’s…..

I spotted a cute line of Peruvian Dog Wear from Alqo Wasi (meaning “Dog Home” in Quechua, the language of the Incas) and was immediately drawn to the pretty designs and soft looking styles. They even have dog ponchos!

My ponies recently got a new toy to play with in their pasture.
Mom fills it with bits of hay and horse treats, and the ponies proceed to bite, kick, and roll it around the pasture in the hopes that one will eventually pop out of the hole.
It was quite obvious they had no idea what they were doing. So being that I’m so well versed in the art of interactive toys, I offered to show them how it’s done.
Alright fine, I rolled and kicked it too! Apparently pony toys are built to last!
How is your dog at mastering interactive toys?
Sometimes you just need a little happy dance, especially on rainy days like today…

Wow, that was some March! Exciting as it was, I can’t wait to kick off April. Speaking of April, how did you guys enjoy my little April Fools Day Joke? That’s right, the Toshiba Petbook I mentioned at the beginning of this post was a clever little April Fools Day joke thought up by the funny folks at Toshiba. I thought it was just too hilarious not to share (although I secretly did wish it was real). If you click on an of the “learn more” buttons at the bottom of their page you can see their little ruse!
Happy April Fools Day! Did I fool you?
