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!
You can fetch the Go Go Dog Pal for $230.

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)
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!
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!
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!
Mostly I’m just enjoying the warmth…..all before I have to break out my cool weather wardrobe!
What are you going to miss about the summer once it’s gone?
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.
While progress on Trooper’s new home is moving along, this weekend’s goal was to continue tiling.
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.
And good news, it held up just fine to our playtime antics.
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!
What sort of projects did your pup help you with this weekend?

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‘ 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.
So after running around on the farm all day Trooper and I couldn’t wait to test out our new chews.
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!
Now you may notice that Trooper and I have some nice pearly white smiles, and we’d definitely like to keep it that way!
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!
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:
And guess what, even with all those fancy things to keep your teeth clean, they still taste yummy.
Who knew keeping your teeth clean could be as easy as eating!
And now for the best part….
ONE LUCKY WINNER will win a package of Minties Chews!

I stumbled across the super fun pet company, Alcott, the other day and instantly knew they were my kind shop! Carrying all kinds of awesome adventure gear from the first aid essentials, to pup tents, sleeping bags, backyard pools and more – I couldn’t help but want it all! Here’s a few of my favorite Alcott finds:

Our goal, to make as many people smile as we could!
My pal Minnow is pretty good at helping us draw a crowd, I mean just look at his super model pose!
And when he starts to paint everyone can’t help but to be captivated!
Myself included, as I love watching Minnow create his special works of art.
Minnow painted several works of art throughout the day which should be available on his website very soon.
Finally it was my turn to perform, and I showed off some of my expert hoop jumping skills.
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!
And for my final heroic stunt, I dove head first though a solid hoop (don’t worry, I wore my helmet for safety!)
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.
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!
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!

And now onto my August Adventures…
I took my new Park It Mat on a shopping trip to the hardware store!
I got kicked out of the clean plate club when mom and dad’s new dishwasher arrived.
I took my new gal pal, rescue pup Maya, to the lake for her first paddleboarding lesson.
I got to help mom frame my very own birth certificate!
Trooper and I got our zoomies on in the basement of the new farmhouse.
I shared some cookies with my good buddies.
I shared a throwback to my very first introduction to hunting underground.
I showed off my awesome chewing faces.
I watched a movie in the park.
I announced my next big appearance.
I spent an awesome day at the beach.
I made friends with my new napping partner.
I took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and even donated too.
I shared how my mom helps me and Trooper overcome shop dog boredom.
I offered moral support when my ponies got a visit from the dentist.
Wow, I’m always amazed looking back at how much I can pack in to 30 days! What sort of adventures have you been on in August?
Recently my new friends over at Spreadshirt.com offered me the opportunity to design a custom t-shirt just for me (well I guess technically my mom) from their website.
To start my t-shirt design process I visited Spreadshirt.com and picked out a shirt I thought my mom would love. She’s a sucker for American Apparel T-shirts because they are so ultra soft, so I knew I couldn’t go wrong with this one!
Next you can use their handy tools to customize your shirt and I decided to uploaded my logo along with my favorite saying “Adventure Awaits”.
A few days later my Spreadshirt T-shirt arrived in the mail, and I couldn’t wait to show my mom!
Well, I think it’s safe to say that my mom loves her new t-shirt, because she’s been wearing it on all our adventures. Whether it be taking a ride on Boomerang…..
….or going for a bike ride! This shirt is definitely going to be getting a lot of use with all the adventures we go on!
Even though Spreadshirt has all the tools you need to customize your own clothing, they also have lots of fun designs to choose from too.
I even spotted these fun dachshund designs that can be printed on anything from shirts, to hoodies, tote bags, mugs, and more!
And now for the best part….
ONE LUCKY WINNER will win a $25 Voucher to Spreadshirt.com (includes free shipping)
