Halloween is one of my favorite times of year! I love getting to dress up as something I’m not, and each year my parents help me to make a very special homemade costume. Over the years I’ve been some creative characters like….
And while I can’t spoil this years Halloween costume just yet, I did round up some of my favorite DIY Halloween Pet Costumes from around the web to inspire you.
So here’s some of my favorites…
7. Mad Hatter
9. Beanie Baby
What costume does your pet have planned for this year?
Since last week I celebrated my 8th Birthday I thought I would share just how I decided to celebrate.
Now my sister is only 2 months old, so she doesn’t even know what a Birthday is yet. So I decided to show her exactly what you do on Birthdays…
If I can help it, my sister is going to be the very best present unwrapped when she grows up!
How do you celebrate your dog’s birthday?
Well it’s been a couple months since you’ve gotten to check out where I’ve been sleeping. Not to worry though, because although I haven’t been sharing the photos, I’ve definitely been sleeping the day away! So here’s a few of the spots I’ve been napping in…
What’s your favorite spot this month?
Check out where else I’ve been sleeping in my “Oh the Places You Sleep” series!
Today is my 8th Birthday! A day of celebration!
Just as in previous years I love to take this day to look back at all the amazing adventures I’ve had over the past year. So mom helped me whip up my year in review video, with lots of never before shared pictures and videos of me and my sister!
This year I’ve got a new Birthday buddy to share all the fun with, who coincidentally also turns 8 weeks old on the 7th!
So kick up your heels and join me in celebrating my 8th Birthday! Something tells me this next year is going to be full of fun and I can’t wait!
So It’s been a little while since I’ve checked back in with all of you, but it’s been for a good reason! Many of you may have already seen the good news on Facebook, but on August 7, 2016 the newest member of my family made her long awaited appearance!
While I couldn’t be there for the actual birth (apparently even well behaved dogs like myself aren’t allowed in the maternity ward at the hospital) Mom tells me she weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 21 inches long. That’s almost as long as me!
And from the day she was born she had these super long beautiful eyelashes, you know the kind only girls are supposed to have.
Nearly 2 months have passed since Pyper was born, and we’ve already gone on lots of adventures together. I can’t wait to share more about what we’ve been up to lately, but there’s a reason it’s taken me so long to even share with all of you on the blog that she’s finally here …
….sister never quite got the newborn memo that napping is fun! Obviously she doesn’t take after her big brother, but don’t worry, I’m trying my hardest to teach her how fun naps can be.
So while during the day my sister is up and ready for fun most of the time, she mostly gives me my beauty rest at night by sleeping 7 – 8 hours! But this also means Mom, Dad, and I are stretched pretty thin trying to get things done at the shop during the day (while also taking care of sister) as well as all the usual fun activities we like to do that take up time.
I plan to share more of our adventures with all of you soon, but it just may take me a little longer than normal to keep the blog updated at a regular pace. But incase you were still missing your daily dose of Ammo, I have been, and always will be updating my Instagram and Facebook Pages. So make sure you’re following me on there!
Adventure Awaits! So stay tuned!

And now it’s time for my July adventures…
I kicked things off by celebrating the 4th of July.
I shared my adventures over the long holiday weekend.
I helped get ready for my sister’s arrival by testing out all her baby gear.
I updated the security at my shop!
I got excited waiting for my best bud to arrive.
I caught up on as much sleeping as I could before my sister arrives.
I had a little trouble with my new toy basket.
I got Beary excited for the impending arrival of my sister.
I had some happy tail-wagging fun.
I got ready for my big family adventure.
August is here now, and I can’t wait to start my new adventures with my family! Don’t worry, I’ll share all the news about my sister soon (about whether or not she’s even here or not yet too!) So stay tuned!
What sort of fun did you have in July?
The time has come for my next big adventure! With just a short while before my new sister gets here I’ve decided to take a little blogging break to spend time with my family. I don’t know when exactly I’ll be back, but don’t worry, I’ll be sure to share the good news of the newest member of my family when she comes.
You can catch up on my journey to becoming a big brother with these previous blog posts:
And just for fun, take a guess on the date you think my sister will arrive in the comments below and we’ll see who guesses right!
I’ve always been the type of dog that knows how to have fun. I can make a bad day into a good day with the flick of my tail and a toothy grin.
And sometimes it’s just an average day lounging on the couch, and you just can’t help but wag your tail and smile. It’s infectious…
So whether you’re having a bad day or not, just remember, keep that tail wagging and everything will be ok.
Does your dog make everything better when you’re having a bad day?
Not that long ago I received a very special package in the mail from my pal Sharkie‘s grandma.
Not only did it include this adorable handmade sweater for me, but also some super fun items for my sister and I to enjoy.
Seriously how cute are these poncho, booties, and cowgirl boots for my little sister? I just know she’s absolutely going to love them once she gets here.
But my favorite thing of all was this super awesome bear cowl!
Does it make me look ferocious and bear-like? Well not too ferocious, you know, because I don’t want to be scaring my sister.
Speaking of my sister, Sharkie’s Grandma made her one too! How cool is that!
Since I knew these beautifully made items would be so much fun for my sister and I to wear, I thought it would be appropriate to start practicing my story-time skills (with a bear theme of course) for when she gets here. Unfortunately I don’t own Goldilocks and the Three Bears (you better get on that mom!), but I do have this really fun book about National Parks*, and you all know how much I love the great outdoors!
And of course it has bears! Maybe someday I’ll get to take my sister on a fun road-trip to visit these national parks in person (some of which I’ve already visited myself – and saw bears in too!)
Now I just have to wait for my sister to get here so I can actually read it to her!
Thanks to Suzanne for her amazing crocheting skills. My sister and I will treasure these items always!
Do you have any recommendations for fun bear-themed books I can read to my sister when she comes?
A few weeks ago mom picked me out a new toy basket*.
Once I got over the initial confusion on it’s intended use (I mean it “could” double as a dog bed don’t you think)….it was time to test out it’s real function in holding my toys.
This is going to be a much bigger adjustment than I thought. Perhaps some new toys for my basket with help me with this big change… *wink*
Have you ever caught your dog on camera doing something goofy like me?
