Friday Fetch: Remote Control Chase Toys for Dogs

Friday Fetch: Remote Control Chase Toys for Dogs

Ok this one is for all the guys out there (my dad included)! Check out these super awesome remote control pet toys from Go Go Dog Pals.

Each remote control dog toy is outfitted with long range operation (up to 350 Feet) and variable speed control (up to 25 MPH). The outer shell shape and material is designed so dogs cannot grasp and puncture it. The Pal’s purpose-built sturdy chassis is engineered to operate on most surfaces and land upright when flipped. Sounds like a super fun chase toy if you ask me!

Throwback Thursday: Puppy Trooper

puppy ammo the dachshund and trooper

Ever since I was 8 weeks old my buddy Trooper has been the dog I looked up to. He came to the shop with me everyday, where he was in charge of “training” me for the first year or so of my life. I like to think that I got my sassiness from Trooper himself, and I’m pretty sure these videos of a young puppy Trooper (before I knew him) hanging out at the shop totally prove my point!

P.S. Isn’t it amazing how much lighter Trooper’s coat was when he was a puppy? Now everyone just thinks he’s really old with his mostly black coat with bits of gray. (he’s only 7) Ammo the Dachshund

End of Summer Adventures

Summer is quickly coming to an end (how sad), and although there is lots to look forward to in the fall I’m still going to miss all the summertime fun. So I’ve been packing in as much excitement as I can!

End of Summer Adventures // Ammo the Dachshund

I’ve been spending time with my favorite pony, Minnow, while he munches on the last bits of summer grass.

That Minnow is always trying to hog the camera with his cheesy smiles!

End of Summer Adventures // Ammo the Dachshund

I’m also squeezing in trips to the hardware store – to help mom and dad finish up all our summer projects around the house.

I’m also taking as many trips to the lake with mom and dad that I can. Pretty soon it’ll be much to chilly on the water for me!

End of Summer Adventures // Ammo the Dachshund

Mostly I’m just enjoying the warmth…..all before I have to break out my cool weather wardrobe!

Tiling a Farmhouse

Tiling a Farmhouse // Ammo the Dachshund

Over the weekend I decided to lend a helping paw and help my pal Trooper on the continuing work on his soon to be new farmhouse home.

Tiling a Farmhouse // Ammo the Dachshund

While progress on Trooper’s new home is moving along, this weekend’s goal was to continue tiling.

Tiling a Farmhouse // Ammo the Dachshund

Trooper and I knew just what to do to help too! We started a wrestling match to make sure that all the tile was nice and secure.

Tiling a Farmhouse // Ammo the Dachshund

And good news, it held up just fine to our playtime antics.

Tiling a Farmhouse // Ammo the Dachshund

There’s still lots more work to do, and mom says we better learn how to grout soon because it’s going to be a big big project!

Don’t worry though, I’ve already started taking notes!

Betsy Farms & Minities Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Trooper and I are pretty hard working farm dogs, and when we’re busy with farm chores we can work up quite the appetite. So we were thrilled when we got the chance to test out some of Betsy Farms’ Chicken Jerky Chews and Minties’ Dental Chews.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Betsy Farms‘ Chicken Jerky chews are made in the USA and do not include artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors while Minties Dental Chews are also made in the USA and free of wheat, gluten, soy, corn, artificial flavors and animal by-products.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

So after running around on the farm all day Trooper and I couldn’t wait to test out our new chews.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

The Betsy Farms Chicken Jerky smelled delicious and was the perfect size to break into smaller bite sized pieces, because even farm dogs have to watch their weight.

I’m pretty sure the looks on mine and Trooper’s faces are enough to tell you how much we loved them!

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Now you may notice that Trooper and I have some nice pearly white smiles, and we’d definitely like to keep it that way!

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

My mom is always on the lookout for healthy treats to help keep my choppers looking this clean, because we all know that farm dogs don’t always have time to brush their teeth!

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

These Minties Chews seemed to fit the bill containing five natural ingredients that work in your dog’s mouth and stomach to promote fresh breath and reduce unpleasant odors:

  • Mint promotes minty fresh breath.
  • Parsley contains enzymes that help break down odor-causing particles in the stomach.
  • Dill helps inhibit bacterial growth and helps prevent early stages of gingivitis.
  • Fennel helps control bacteria and is a natural breath freshener.
  • Chlorophyll from alfalfa balances acid levels in the stomach and helps deodorize your dog’s body.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

And guess what, even with all those fancy things to keep your teeth clean, they still taste yummy.

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Who knew keeping your teeth clean could be as easy as eating!

Betsy Farms and Minties Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

So thanks to our Betsy Farms and Minties Chews Trooper and I are now energized and ready to get back to our farm duties with pearly whites to boot!

As a bonus you can save $1 off your own package of Minties Chews when you like the VetIQ Facebook Page!

Adventures at Ludwigs

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Over the Labor Day Weekend me and my best pony pal Minnow, the Painting Pony, attended the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show.

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Our goal, to make as many people smile as we could!

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

My pal Minnow is pretty good at helping us draw a crowd, I mean just look at his super model pose!

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

And when he starts to paint everyone can’t help but to be captivated!

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Myself included, as I love watching Minnow create his special works of art.

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Minnow painted several works of art throughout the day which should be available on his website very soon.

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Finally it was my turn to perform, and I showed off some of my expert hoop jumping skills.

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

I even made it through the flaming hoop of death…..unharmed!

I also shared a few of my circus stunts like rolling my barrel….

….and playing dead!

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

And for my final heroic stunt, I dove head first though a solid hoop (don’t worry, I wore my helmet for safety!)

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

After our first performance of the day a nasty thunderstorm rolled through. Minnow went to wait out the storm on the horse trailer while I hunkered down in our tent.

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

Eventually the sun came back out for just long enough for Minnow to create a few more paintings, even if the crowds had died down pretty drastically!

Adventures at Ludwigs // Ammo the Dachshund

By the end of the day I was pretty beat! But I’m pretty sure Minnow and I accomplished our goal to make everyone smile! Ammo the Dachshund
