On Hot Days

On Hot Days

On hot days there really isn’t anything else better than hitting the pool to keep cool.

On Hot Days

Lucky for me my sister loves pool days too, so I’ve got a best friend to keep me company while we float around.

On Hot Days

And with one mention of watermelon by mom…..our hot summer day is complete!

What do you do to beat the heat?

P.S. In case you are wondering, my spiffy life vest is made by Ruffwear and available on Amazon.*affiliate linkAmmo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

I’m Digging: Vol 3

I’m Digging: Vol 3

With summer in full swing I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’m currently digging to get me in the summer mood and help me beat the heat! While I don’t own any of these products currently, I’d sure love to test them out.

*this post does contain some affiliate links

Dog Toy Ice Bar

Dog Toy Ice Bar

How cool is this freezable ice pop! Simply fill with water, stick in the freezer, and let your pup enjoy a cool treat. I was thinking that it might work with chicken broth too for an even tastier time.

Chill Collar

This K9 Cooling Collar is designed to keep your pup cool in the heat. Simply wet with cold water and stick around your pup’s neck. It even has a handy hole so you can still attach a leash.

Dog Summer Shirt

Dog Summer Shirt

So this Summer Dog Shirt is pretty much all you need to put you in the summer mood! This shop also has lots of other fun designs that I wouldn’t mind lounging in too!

Always Be Prepared

Always Be Prepared

Always Be Prepared

Sometimes on shopping trips I start to get that feeling when my feet start dragging, I want to lay down and take a nap, and I just can’t shop ANYMORE.

Always Be Prepared

My little sister gets that feeling too, but she knows exactly what to do to make sure we all can keep going!

Always Be Prepared

Snacks! And since our mom is always prepared with goodies to eat, we never have to worry about the dreaded shopping sleepies.

Always Be Prepared

So while my sister snacked away and warded off those shopping sleepies I started to wonder if I was going to get my little pick-me-up.

Always Be Prepared

I mean just look how happy she looks snacking on her favorite crackers*.

*affiliate link

Always Be Prepared

Sigh. It was looking like I’d have to make it through this trip to Lowes without a snack.

Always Be Prepared

But then, as luck would have it, a tiny little hand appeared over the edge of the shopping cart.

Always Be Prepared

Always Be Prepared

I should have known, Baby P would NEVER let her best buddy go hungry.

Always Be Prepared

Crisis averted. Goodbye shopping sleepies, hello crackers! I’m ready to go another 5 hours (ok well maybe just another 30 minutes).

Do you get the shopping sleepies when you’ve been shopping for too long? Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Pop Your Pup. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love.

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

What if I told you that this stylish canvas portrait next to me was a me! I bet you never imagined I could be so cool. But I knew, I always knew I had this epic greatness in me, so great that when your new friends at Pop Your Pup offer to turn a photo of you into pop art you don’t hesitate because you know it will be grand.

Mattie & Margot Ombre Dog Collar Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

See, I told you I was epic!

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

The cool folks over at Pop Your Pup can create lots of fun items from any photo of your pet. And don’t worry, it doesn’t need to be a professional photo with great lighting, they can make most any image work and turn it into a masterpiece.

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Mom helped me pick out some of my favorite photos to send in, and they turned out so fabulous that I couldn’t wait to share them with all of you!

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

They even have kids sizes in t-shirts too, because you know I couldn’t let Baby P be left out of all the fun!

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Not only am I Baby P’s Big Brother, but I’m also her very very favorite thing in the whole wide world.

National Hat Day with Ammo the Dachshund

I mean who can blame her when you look this stylish?

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

So when I gifted Baby P this pop art t-shirt from Pop Your Pup I was thrilled when she got so excited she started yelling “woof” “woof” (because she can’t say Dog yet).

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Now everywhere she goes her big brother can be right by her side!

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Mom loved her shirt just as much, although I didn’t quite get the same “woof” “woof” reaction out of her – I’m pretty sure she enjoyed it just the same.

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

Pop Your Pup made it simple and easy for me to put these smiles on my family’s faces (and don’t worry, Dad was smiling too behind the camera). Simply upload your pet’s photo to their website, choose your products (you can even choose fun background colors and patterns), and in one business day you’ll get a proof to approve. And with unlimited edits to your design, there is no reason you wouldn’t love it!

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

While I enjoyed all of the products from Pop Your Pup, I think my favorite had to be the 16″x20″ canvas. Immediately it found a home on the wall with some of my other dog art.

Pop Art of Your Pup + A Giveaway

….in the playroom of course! Because I love hearing my little sister bark like a dog when she sees it!

So if you’d like to turn your pet into pop art, be sure to visit Pop Your Pup!

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Once again it’s time to celebrate another month in my sister’s life!

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

I’m always right by her side for all of her milestones, and mom and dad say they even notice how much more patient I’ve become.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Especially now that my sister is pretty much running all over the place (or super fast waddling if you want to get technical), I just have to sigh and take the collar pulls, pinches, thrown objects and the newest endeavor….trying to pick me up!

Mom and Dad do their best to protect me from the wrath that is “11 month old toddler”, but truth be told, I’m not always very quick to get out of the way.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Sigh. Thus is the life of a big brother.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

You wouldn’t blame me for being slow to get out of the way though if you knew how much energy is inside this tiny little person. Coming from a dog who needs to sleep 12 – 14 hours in a day, this baby only takes one 30 minute nap a day and only sleeps 9 hours at night! Can you believe it? No wonder I’m too tired to get out of the way!

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Someday I know I’ll look back on these months with fond memories of baby giggles and smiles, drooling (from all the teething), and stinky diapers….but right now, I’m just very very tired.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 11

Regardless I’m still thrilled to be this one’s big brother, but her next words BETTER BE Ammo!

What do you think, do I have a chance at my name being Baby P’s first REAL word aside from the MaMa and DaDa she already says? Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Ammo’s Lake School

Ammo’s Lake School

Ammo's Lake School

It’s come to my attention that I may need to open my own Lake School. Until recently I didn’t realize how many dog’s I’ve mentored on their very first lake outing.

On the Lake with Friends // Ammo the Dachshund

First there was Shilah, who I introduced to the water and her first paddleboarding experience.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Then there was Maya, who had her first dip and also took to the paddle board under my supervision.

Ammo's Lake School

And then there was Hank! The latest victim trainee in Ammo’s Lake School.

Ammo's Lake School

Being that Hank is a Miniature GoldenDoodle (Golden Retriever/Poodle Mix), it didn’t take much convincing for me to get him into the water.

Ammo's Lake School

Just in case though I coached from the sidelines, ready to swim Hank to safety if need be.

Ammo's Lake School

Thankfully he was a natural!

Ammo's Lake School

Although when he emerged it became apparent that there really wasn’t much dog hiding under all that fur!

Ammo's Lake School

So I did what any good dog would do, I let him borrow one of my life vests*! No drowning dogs on my watch!

*affiliate link

Ammo's Lake School

Swimming was one thing, but the true test of a lake dog is the boating. So we took to the docks for a boat adventure. Hank passed test number one with flying colors, making friends with the boat shop crew.

Ammo's Lake School

I led the expedition (as always) and things were going swimmingly for my pal Hank.

Ammo's Lake School

And after a dip overboard to cool off….

Ammo's Lake School

….Hank was officially a Lake Dog just like me!

Since Hank made my job super easy and passed my rigorous training with ease, it made it possible for me to divert my attention to victim trainee #2 of the day…

Ammo's Lake School

*affiliate link

….Baby P!

After we mastered wearing the uncomfortable but necessary life vest* (thanks to some helpful cheerios that mom packed), I am happy to report that Baby P also mastered my Lake School and survived her very first boating adventure. (with very minimal crying I might add). Although she still has a ways to go in the doggie paddle department, but we’ll get there!

So what do you think, should I open up my own Lake School? Likely we’d need sailor hats (and a captain hat for me) with really cool logos. Good thing I know a great graphic designer! 🙂 Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

A Pet Activity Tracker that Helps Pets + A Giveaway

A Pet Activity Tracker that Helps Pets + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Poof and does contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own and I only share products I think you and your pets will love!

Poof Activity Tracker

When this small box arrived at my doorstep from my friends at Poof, I had no idea that it was going to be able to communicate a whole slew of things about me to my parents.

Poof Activity Tracker

At first I was slightly concerned it was going to giveaway all my secrets. Like where I hide my half eaten bones, and which of mom’s newly planted flowers I’ve peed on. But my mind was quickly put at ease when mom explained that Poof was actually an activity tracker – not a secret spiller.

Poof Activity Tracker

Poof makes two different models, the Pea & the Bean. I decided to test out the Bean because it has a replaceable battery that lasts up to 6 months! (while the Pea is slightly smaller and contains a rechargeable battery that lasts up to 60 days.

Poof Activity Tracker

Mom installed the Poof on my collar with one of these rubitz clips (that is not included – but something I already had at home).

Poof Activity Tracker

Armed with my Poof, it was time to get busy exercising (or not exercising depending on how I felt that day)! Or perhaps I’d decide to take a dip in the lake that day – which is fine, because they are waterproof!

Poof Activity Tracker

At the end of my day of activity mom put her smart phone next to my tracker to sync up to the free poof app so that she could collect all the data it received that day.

I was thrilled to see that on my very first day I had already met my exercise goal – and hadn’t napped near as much as I thought!

Poof Activity Tracker

My favorite part though was seeing how I compared next to all the other dogs out there! I could see my ranking with other dogs my size (and I’ve been pretty consistently in the top 10 since I started using it), and also how I ranked globally too.

It’s a really fun motivator to get me out there running and playing even more than I already do – so that I can beat my high score!

Poof Activity Tracker

And for the days I’m feeling extra social I can even connect with other dogs and dogs owners by sharing some dashing pictures of myself. The verdict is still out on if I can also use this as a dating app to meet some girl dachshunds that have the same affinity for exercise as I do.

Poof Activity Tracker

In case the lady dachshunds are watching my poof ranking, I better start exercising now!

The really cool part about the Poof activity trackers is that 100% of their profits go to animal welfare through the GreaterGood.org program. Their donations help pay for food, beds, vaccinations, rescue missions and many other resources that help to keep animals safe and healthy.

Poof Activity Tracker

So if you’d like to checkout just how much sleep, exercise, play, and calories your pup is getting, be sure to check out Poof!

You can even save 50% off your order with code AMMO

And now for the best part….

TWO WINNERS WILL WIN A POOF ACTIVITY TRACKER!
(1 Winners gets the Bean & 1 Winner gets the Pea)

Containing All Your Friends

Containing All Your Friends

Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Carlson Pet Products. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love!

Containing All Your Friends

A few weeks ago my friends from the south, Scout and Sharkie, came for a visit. Trooper and I always love when we can get the whole gang together.

Containing All Your Friends

The thing about my friends from the south though is that they’re really good at being “beach dogs”, but they don’t know a lot about being “farm dogs”.

Simple Pleasures with Ammo the Dachshund

While there are lots of rules about being on a farm that I won’t get into now, the most important one is to never ever ever get close to a horses’ hooves. Those things can break little puppy toes, and kick you in an instant – something Trooper and I are well aware of and make sure to always be on our most cautious behavior when mingling around the ponies.

Now my friends Scout and Sharkie, well, they never really learned this rule. So after chasing a few horses, and a couple of close calls it was deemed that they were not to be trusted around the ponies. (better safe than sorry!)

Containing All Your Friends

Thankfully my friends at Carlson Pet Products had just the thing to give everyone on the farm peace of mind with their indoor pet containment gates.

Containing All Your Friends

Their Design Paw Auto Close Pet Gate kept everyone from sneaking down the basement steps in search of any doors to the outside world that may have been left open.

Mom’s favorite part was the auto-close feature, so when her hands were full she could just push the gate shut and no dogs could squeeze through.

Containing All Your Friends

Sharkie and I had our own favorite part…

Containing All Your Friends

…the small pet door so that we could have our own secret “little dog” adventures without those big dogs tagging along!

Containing All Your Friends

While it’s true that my pals from the south weren’t very “pony savvy”, there was also another new thing with a whole set of rules (that I also won’t get into), that my friends weren’t accustomed to.

Containing All Your Friends

While the humans all seemed to think the Carlson Free Standing Pet Gate was keeping all the dogs from jumping on, licking, or playing too roughly with Baby P….us dogs know that it was really keeping Baby P from pulling fur, pinching, and jumping on unsuspecting dogs!

Containing All Your Friends

Regardless of the reason, this gate floated all around the farmhouse while my friends were in town since it was so easily portable because it required no holes in the wall or pressure points and could easily expand from 40″ – 70″!

Containing All Your Friends

My visit with my friends from the South was far too short, and I was sad to see them go. But I was also very thankful that they made it to the end of their stay with no wounds, missing fur, or broken bones from the very dangerous ponies and babies on the farm – all thanks to Carlson Pet Products!

Containing All Your Friends

I sent Scout home with a list of rules to work on for the next time she visits. #1 being – do not ever ever try to sniff a ponies’ rump! And #2 being – pony poop is a delicacy that can be found in the manure pile, not in a stall where a pony is still standing!

We have a lot to work on before the next visit! Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

What sort of things would you like to keep your pet contained from?
