Well, my adorable buddy Miss P is now 7 months old! Don’t let her sweet little smile fool you….
..she knows how to get EXACTLY what she wants with her little pouty lip. It’s almost better than my sad puppy eyes. Almost.
I’ve taught her well.
In fact, I’ve taught her so well that I think she’s going to start crawling any day now! She’s a smarty pants, just like her big brother!
Baby P and I are also working on her first word. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be “Ammmmo” but mom is trying to edge me out with “MaMa”. We shall see who wins.
And now we leave you with pouty lips and sad puppy eyes, because Baby P and I want some snacks! Feed us please!
Summer is going to be here before you know it, and I want to be totally ready with my summer bod. Which is why I’m not letting a little cold weather keep me from getting my muscles back…..
What do you think? Am I going to be ready once summer rolls round?
Sadly this post is not about “digging”….although I totally wouldn’t complain if it was! No it’s about what I’m currently digging, as in what I think’s cool and what I’m secretly hoping finds its way to my mailbox.
So just for fun (and because who doesn’t love online shopping) I rounded up a few of my favorite things this week:
This Dachshund Tea Towel, because there can NEVER be enough Dachshund paraphernalia in your house. You don’t even want to know how many wiener dog things are in my own home (myself included), and you know what, I’ll never get tired of it!
This Chunky Knitted Pet Bed might be designed for a cat, but you know what, I can totally curl my long bodied self into a tiny little donut to fit into this adorable bed!
Totally loving the simplistic photographs from this online shop, and the really awesome part is that they are only $6.95 for a digital download. Which means you can print them at any size you want yourself and start a collection of framed art at a great cost! You know how I love some good framed art!
Ok seriously, how adorable would Baby P and I looked snuggled up in this blanket? Need I say more?
What sort of things are you digging this week?
This February was amazing, mostly because I had so many warm Spring-like days! So crazy! And I also had a lot of fun adventures, so that too.
Before we get to my adventures though, let me give a shoutout to my special sponsors & affiliates! Thanks to them I’m able to bring you exciting posts, so make sure you give them some love and check out what great products they carry!
And now it’s time for my February adventures…
I finally got to play Dress-up with my sister, and it was everything I thought it’d be!
I shared just how much activity I’m actually getting on a daily basis.
I shared a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Dogs.
I celebrated the fact that my sister is now 1/2 a year old.
I shared my own rendition of a classic kids song.
I popped some tags at the thrift store.
I wrote an ode to my mailman.
I shared my spring to-do list.
I invited everyone in to tour my sister’s castle.
And so begins my March! I’m looking forward to a warm (and super early) Spring, how about you?
It’s come to my attention that I never properly shared my new little sidekick’s bedroom. After all, it took mom and I a really long time to get it just right.
So come on in, and welcome to the Princess’ Castle!
This is the room where my sister’s dog crate resides. I still haven’t figured out why she hasn’t jumped out of it yet!
Although I’m pretty sure it won’t be long before she breaks out of her crate at night, because the artwork above her is totally accurate. I’m also fairly confident in saying that she’s so fierce that her “bark” might even be louder than mine!
Even if she does break out though, I’ll be right here waiting.
Waiting to make sure she doesn’t touch my toys, or my dog bowl, or my favorite pillow on the couch.
Yup, that’s definitely the face of a little sister that’s going to escape her dog crate. I knew it.
Looks like we won’t be getting any sleep again tonight pony.
So what did you think of my little sister’s castle? Do you think she’ll like how I decorated it (as you may notice there are MANY pictures of the one and only me in her bedroom)!
With Spring just around the corner (it’s in the 70’s today…that’s crazy!) I realized I better get to work creating my Spring To-Do List. Because there is soooo much to do to be ready for Spring.
Ammo’s Spring To-Do List:
#1: Get dirt for mom’s vegetable garden. I never pass up the opportunity to play in a big pile of dirt. Bonus if its from the mushroom farm, because then I know it’s extra stinky.
#2: Help Dad rebuild the ramp to my shed. Which basically means that I get to take some more trips to my favorite hardware store…yippee!
#3: Help mom pick out plants for the vegetable garden. This time I’m hoping she plants corn, because that’s my favorite!
#4: Locate all the new critter holes around my home, so I’ll know just where to dig when the warm weather hits.
#5: Help out with maintenance around the farm. (Also know as digging holes for fence posts)
#6: Widen all the openings to the ground hog holes on the farm (after hibernation I’m sure those ground hogs are gonna be extra fat and extra stuck)
#7: Roll in the stinkiest stuff I can find. Because when Spring hits I want to be able to blend right into my surroundings.
#8: Scratch my back in the grass. It’s just not the same in the winter!
#9: Take a nap outside WITHOUT a coat on!
#10: Rub my after-bath fur all over the house. Because after all those dirt related things I’m sure mom is going to make me take a bath!
What sort of things are on your Spring To-Do List this year?
Ode to My Mailman
I wonder what it’s like to be a mailman,
To carry all that mail.
I bet I’d look sweet in that uniform,
Even with my furry tail.
I probably wouldn’t want to go outside in bad weather,
So I might not be so great at delivering a letter.
And I’d much rather wait for the mail anyway,
Because my mailman does it so much better!
After all, he always remembers to deliver me a sweet treat! Thanks for all the mail Mr. Mailman!
Does your dog enjoy waiting for the mail?
Just like my boy Macklemore my mom has been hitting up the local thrift store with only 20 dollars in her pocket in search of some hidden gems.
She’s been coming home from the local Goodwill with all kinds of cool finds for my sister. Those dog pjs are super cute I have to admit. Honestly though, I was starting to feel a little left out.
I probably shouldn’t have spoke too soon, because before I knew it mom had popped two dog hats out of her bag that she had picked up just for me. Sigh, I knew where this was going….
Yup, before I could bark in protest it was a full blown dress-up session!
Eh, who am I kidding. I totally love to play dress-up….especially since I look so awesome in this hat!
I might not look as cool in this one, but at least my head will be warm the next time it snows! (And yes, I’m rooting for snow at least once more this winter, because otherwise I won’t get to try out my new sled!)
I’m pretty sure Baby P is chomping at the bit to play Dress-up with me. Soon, very soon, and in the meantime I’m more than happy to practice in my ninety-nine cent hat! And in the words of Macklemore….
I’m a take your grandpa’s style, I’m a take your grandpa’s style,
No for real – ask your grandpa – can I have his hand-me-downs?
Have you ever found something awesome at the Thrift Store for your dog?
Now that I’m the coolest big brother ever, it’s come to my attention that to be EVEN cooler (if that’s even possible), that I need to practice my “nursery rhymes”. My sister likes when I “sing” to her, and she likes it even more when I dig holes. Well, this is perfect, because I have just the song to sing her in preparation of Spring (aka Groundhog season).
A “Cooler” Version by Ammo
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig in my hole the whole day through
To dig dig dig dig dig dig dig is what I really like to do
It ain’t no trick to get groundhogs quick
If you dig dig dig with a paw or a pick
In a hole! In a hole! In a hole! In a hole!
Where a million groundhogs live!
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig from early morn till night
I dig dig dig dig dig dig dig up everything in sight
I dig up groundhogs by the score
A thousand critters, sometimes more
But I don’t know what I dig ’em for
I dig dig dig a-dig dig
Much better than the original song, right?
And don’t worry, if I ever get tired of digging, I can bring in reinforcements. Happy Digging!
Does your dog like to dig as much as me?
I can hardly believe that it’s been 1/2 a year since Baby P was born! She’s growing up much too fast!
While she’s now sitting up and eating real foods, and even attempting to crawl a little….there are some things that haven’t changed one bit…
…and that’s her love for her favorite puppy in the whole wide world, me! (She’s not even embarrassed to kiss me in front of the camera!) In fact she loves me so much that everytime she sees me I get greeted with a high pitched excited squeal. That or maybe she thinks my name is Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!
We’re both already planning all of our Spring and Summer adventures…especially once she starts walking and I can show her all of my favorite groundhog holes. So much to do, so little time.
Happy 6 months Baby P! I’m so glad I get to be by your side while you grow up!
