Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation

You might remember that for the past several years I’ve been helping my mom and dad “kitchen shop”. Oh yes, for year’s I’ve been shopping appliancesbuilding pantries and more, but the time has finally come to demolish my old kitchen for good!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Incase you might have forgotten, here’s what my kitchen originally looked like.

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Pretty retro, but if you ask me, as long as I had a place to lay down and a spot for my food bowls, I was a happy happy dog.

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

But, mom and dad had other ideas and pretty soon my happy little resting spot and my food bowls were replaced with a shop vac.

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

And the demo had begun!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

My dad is a pretty handy guy, and he even started building this new closet, which I’ve already claimed for all of my adventure gear!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

While I am gaining a closet, I’m also loosing one too.

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

But I plan to hide a little secret inside the one I’m loosing. Someday if anyone ever tears down the wall, they’ll find one of my cute little business cards inside!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Next it was time to start demoing the wall between my old kitchen and the dining room, for one big super kitchen!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Things were starting to look pretty messy and then one day when I came home from work….

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

…I saw that Dad had completely knocked down the wall without me!

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

Suddenly there was so much room for activities! (name that movie) But honestly, I really only had one concern, where is my super soft bed and my food bowls going to go?

Mom assures me that this will be a pet friendly kitchen when it’s all done, but for now I’ll just have to wait and see. This kitchen remodel is going to be taking up a lot of my adventuring time for the next few weeks, and this journey has just begun, so stay tuned to find out how it turns out! Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Super Hero Bedtime Story

Super Hero Bedtime Story

Disclosure: This post is brought to you by Barkbox and contains some affiliate links. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you will love!

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

One of my favorite days of the month is BarkBox day. The day when my monthly subscription of goodies arrives at my door.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

Everything is always so yummy and fun to play with that I can hardly wait to dive right in. It’s seriously THE BEST DAY EVER.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

That is until my mom says it’s time for bed! This is what my face looks like when I’m told I’ll have to hold off playing with my Barkbox until tomorrow. I call it the “what the what?” face.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

So reluctantly I get into bed, with my full Super Hero outfit on of course, because real Super Heroes are always ready at a moments notice.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

I fight dreamland for as long as I can, when I suddenly remember….

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

“Dad! You forgot to read me my bedtime story!!”

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

Super Heroes can’t go to bed without a bedtime story!

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

Thankfully my Dad obliges, and reads me my favorite book, SuperDog; The Heart of a Hero. (which by the way, I love this book so much that I even helped read it to an elementary school class).

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

The adventures of Dex the Dachshund drift me off to dreamland and I have visions of saving cats from trees, and helping old ladies cross the street.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

The sandman is about to pay a visit to me, when I suddenly remember…

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

I can’t possibly go to bed without the Star Stuffie that came in my BarkBox! What if he gets scared in that box all by himself at night?

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

And you know what Dad, Mr. Star missed the whole SuperDog story, so you’re going to have to read it again!

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

Goodnight sweet friends! Hopefully the world will continue to be a safe place even while this hero is getting some shut eye.

Super Hero Bedtime Story with Ammo the Dachshund

And incase you’re wondering, my BarkBox was still waiting for me the next day when I woke up!

If you’d like to fetch your dog a reason to fight bedtime too, you can grab a subscription to BarkBox with code AMMO for 10% OFF!

You can also snag a FREE Bully Stick (my favorite) from the BarkShop for all orders with code AMMO.

Dog Agility on the Farm

Dog Agility on the Farm

It’s been a while since I shared much about my ongoing agility training. The fact is, I actually haven’t been to any training classes since last year, mostly I blame it on my mom because her schedule got too hectic to take me.

Ammo the Dachshund // Agility // Teeter Totter

But even though I may not be taking regular classes, that doesn’t mean that I’m not doing a little training on the side, because….

Real Dogs Have Muscles! via Ammo the Dachshund

Agility is a great way to keep me muscled and fit, plus it’s fun too! Early this Spring my mom decided to move all my agility equipment out to the farm so that we’d have more room to practice. And you know what, I completely forgot to share with you this fun little video of me running the agility course in the horse arena giant sandbox.

Obviously I was a bit rusty, but not too bad! I’ll just have to keep up with even more practicing.

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by Jones Natural Chews Co. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you will love!

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

My tail is wagging, because recently I made some new friends! That’s right, the folks at Jones Natural Chews Co. are my new buddies, because they mailed me MEAT!

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Not just any meat, a whole frisbee full of meat (their Spring Fling goodie Frisbee to be exact).

And when you get a Frisbee full of 100% USA made meat products, there is really only one thing to do….

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

….throw on your best party hat and have a Par-Tay!

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Well, a party of one….but still a party! (I didn’t really want to share with anyone else anyway).

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Jones Natural Chews only uses raw product sourced from the USA and does not use any artificial ingredients to keep their products natural. If that weren’t enough to get you drooling, they also slowly oven bake their meats to keep the bones at proper moisture levels and to produce bones that are consistent with raw bone density.

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Jones Natural Chews also tests all of their bones for splintering. They conduct pressure tests and moisture tests to ensure the best bone strength. But it’s always best to supervise your pet when feeding them. My mom never allows me to have chews or treats when she isn’t there to watch me closely. Safety first!

Jones Natural Dog Chews Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

You can visit the Jones Natural Chews website to find a retailer near you, or shop online for these yummy chews and more! Also be sure to check out the JNC Blog for even more fun!

Beltzville State Park Lake with Ammo & Shilah

Beltzville State Park Lake with Ammo & Shilah

Yesterday I shared some of the adventures my pal Shilah and I had during our annual camping trip (once the rain cleared), and today I’ve got even more to share!

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

One of the great things about camping is getting to explore the great outdoors! While I had many fun things planned for my weekend outside, the rain kept me from most of them, but the good news is I still got to visit the Beltzville State Park with Shilah.

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

The fun thing about Beltzville is that they have a lake! I was super excited to visit the lake because they also have a pet friendly boat rental (similar to the local lake I visit in the summer), and I was secretly hoping it had some speed boats because Beltzville has a 45mph speed limit (my local lake is much lower).

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

Sadly because of the overcast day the boat rental was closed for the day when I arrived! But I wasn’t going to let that ruin my fun.

Especially since there were so many things in the lake that needed saving! If you didn’t already know, when I’m around water I become Mr. Lifeguard, trying to save any and everything from drowning.

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

I tried saving people.

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

I tried saving lost shoes.

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

(this particular rescue attempt was a success).

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

And I even tried saving my pal Shilah!

Although truth be told, nothing I tried to save actually needed saving. But life guard skills need to be kept in tip top shape, so it’s always best to practice as much as possible. (although paws crossed no one ever ACTUALLY needs my life saving skills, because I’m not sure I could really pull anyone in from the water, but that won’t stop me from trying!)

Beltzville Lake with Ammo the Dachshund & Shilah the Husky

Visiting the Beltzville Lake was the perfect end to our camping adventure, and I can’t wait to go back again when the boat rental is open!

Don’t forget, this week I’m giving away an awesome life vest from my pals at Ruffwear (as seen on me in this post). It comes in a variety of sizes to fit any dog, and is the perfect accessory for water adventures. Don’t forget to enter!

Wondering where to get any of my great camping gear? Be sure to check out my gear page!

P.S. Special thanks to Shilah’s mom from Mrs. Dailey’s Classroom for sharing some of her camping photos with me (the ones not watermarked with my website)!

Camping in the Poconos with Dogs

Camping in the Poconos with Dogs

Last week I started to recap my annual camping trip with my friend, Shilah the Husky, well now I’m back to share more about all the fun we had (despite the rain). It’s too much fun to fit into one blog post, so don’t worry, there’s even more fun than this to come ahead!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

One of my favorite parts about camping is getting breakfast in bed. It’s one of those few occasion where I don’t even have to get up to enjoy a big bowl of my “cereals”.

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

Shilah and I were excited to see that the weather had begun to clear up some, and although the rain was on and off, it wasn’t down pouring all day like it had been. Yipee!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

So we broke out the fishing poles again, and had a little contest with our dad’s to see who could catch the most fish. (spoiler alert, none of us caught any!)

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

That’s ok though, because there was still plenty to do on our camping trip, like hiking! We didn’t get to go to any of the great hiking spots we had staked out for our trip, but we did get to take some walks around our campsite.

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

We even stopped to take a few selfies along the way, it’s not often I get to spend 4 whole days with my pal!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

There may have even been an awkward kiss at one moment. It’s still out for debate on who kissed who.

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

Do you blame me though, I mean how can you not sneak a kiss when you’re hanging out with a pretty girl like Shilah!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

Back at camp things were starting to heat up since it was finally dry enough to start the campfire.

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

As our day started to come to an end Shilah and I broke out our Glowdoggies * so we could have our own personal “flashlights” in the dark. Although Shilah questioned, “won’t the bears just be able to spot us way easier with these things on?” I told her not to worry, I packed bear spray!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

As darkness really crept in the campfire started roaring!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

That’s always my cue to hit the hay early, because campfires (or any fire for that matter) are not really my jam. That’s ok though, I much prefer snuggling up in the tent under my sleeping bag anyway.

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

I am a little sad I did miss out on the light writing fun everyone had with sparklers, but mom and dad made sure to include me in their own special way…

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

….it’s my name in lights! I’m famous!

Ammo the Dachshund Goes Camping in the Woods

Even celebrities like me can totally get down and dirty on a camping trip!

Stay tuned this week as I still have more fun to share about our adventures at a nearby lake!

Best Fitting Lifevest for Dogs & A Giveaway

Best Fitting Lifevest for Dogs & A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by Ruffwear. All opinions are my own and I only share products I think my readers will love!

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Every summer I enjoy hitting the lake, sometimes kayaking, most of the time Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP), and always practicing water safety by wearing a floatation device. While I’ve owned several life vests over the years, I’ve finally found one that fits me PERFECTLY, the Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat.

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

Being a Dachshund means that sometimes I have trouble finding harnesses, coats and even life vests that can accommodate my unique body type. Thankfully the Ruffwear Lifevest is adjustable in all the right places making it the best fitting one I’ve ever worn.

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

This floatation device has a sleek design making it slimmer fitting than any of the other vests I’ve tried, but don’t worry it’s still full of plenty of “float”!

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

This life jacket is not only a great design for Dachshunds, but it is also designed for dogs of all shapes and sizes. It even includes thoughtful details like a strong handle, optimally positioned to lift dogs out of the water, and reflective trim for enhanced visibility in or out of the water.

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

I enjoyed how the front of the vest was adjustable, but once set is easy to slip over your pup’s head, and the belly straps are also fully adjustable.

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

The design of this vest allowed me to have great free-flowing movement of my front legs, which is fantastic for swimming (and for all those occasions when you accidentally fall in!).

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

A fun little fact about me, while swimming might not be my #1 favorite thing to do, I do on occasion like to swim voluntarily, but I’ll only do so if I’m wearing a life jacket and the water is bath water warm!

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

I’m a big fan of the Ruffwear K-9 Float Coat, and I can’t recommend it enough for all those water loving dogs out there! It’s now my go-to summer accessory that I never leave home without.

You can fetch your own life jacket from Ruffwear for $79.95. (and incase you’re wondering, I wear a size XS and I’m 20lbs).

And now for the best part…

Ruffwear Float Coat Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

ONE WINNER WILL WIN A RUFFWEAR K-9 FLOAT COAT!
