My friends over at Pretty Fluffy have announced the launch of their online boutique – the Pretty Fluffy Shop. With six original prints for dog lovers everywhere, it’s the perfect present for any pet lover. (I know what to get my mom for Christmas this year!)
Whether you’re a ‘Crazy Dog Lady’ or believe ‘Dogs are a Girl’s Best Friend’ there is a style and sentiment to suit everyone.
You can fetch these fun prints and more at Pretty Fluffy.
Trooper and I have always been the kind of friends that love to wrestle. So for today’s throwback thursday I dug up this fun video of Trooper and I wrestling (in our patent wiggly way) back in 2011.
But don’t let our quiet little wrestling matches fool you…..we also thoroughly enjoy a game of chase!
How does your dog like to play?
Over the weekend mom and dad took me to pick out my Halloweenie pumpkins.
And oh boy where there pumpkins galore to choose from!
But not to worry, this nose is very experienced at picking out the very best carving pumpkins!
Just look at these beauties I sniffed out! I can’t wait to get to carving them, all I have to do is decide what to carve. Any suggestions?
And if you didn’t know, I’m also pretty awesome at carving pumpkins too, just like these sweet pumpkins from a few years back.
The end result landed a photo of me on MarthaStewart.com – pretty exciting!
The fact is though, mom took so many fun photos of Trooper and I enjoying our new Martha Stewart products – that we had to share all the others that didn’t make the cut!
Especially since they are the PERFECT thing to put everyone in the Halloweenie mood!
Honestly, what’s more Halloweenie than a dachshund dressed as a pumpkin?
Well perhaps a dachshund dressed as a pumpkin in a pile of hay!
Trooper totally had his eye on the Martha Stewart toys, and I bet he was thinking he’d get to take them home with him after our little photoshoot.
Sorry Trooper, I’ll share my Halloweenie collar with you, but these toys are mine….all mine!
What sort of things are you doing this fall to get into the Halloweenie mood?
Disclosure: I received products from Martha Stewart to photograph for their website, but decided to share the fun photos on my blog as well! All opinions are my own.

My new friends over at the Paw Street Barkery thought my tummy was looking a little hungry (isn’t is always) so they kindly sent me over some sweet treats from their organic dog treat line.
Of course when my pal Trooper caught wind of the fact that there were some yummy treats at my house – he jumped at the chance to help me taste test all of them – how thoughtful.
Paw Street Barkery sent over three yummy flavors for me to try. Mom’s favorite part about them was the limited ingredients, which are perfect for even the most sensitive of tummies.
Peanut Butter Pooch
All that talk about peanut butter, sweet potato, and chicken had Trooper and I drooling!
The good thing about reviewing cookies is that there’s lots of taste testing required.
Both Trooper and I agree, Paw Street Barkery makes a mean cookie….and we’re more than happy to vacuum up any and all crumbs should our services be needed to taste test again.
You can fetch these yummy treats and more from the Paw Street Barkery!
And now for the best part….

Every year my mom and dad make me a homemade halloween costume.
Last year I was a Raphael the Ninja Turtle.
And the year before I was Wile E. Coyote. And while this year’s Halloween costume is under wraps for now, I thought it would be fun to round up some of my favorite DIY Halloween costumes for dogs from around the web. Hopefully it will help spark some ideas for your own pup’s costumes!

As you know on Sunday I celebrated my 6th Birthday by attending the Yuengling Oktoberfest Dachshund Races. Well when I go home later that day I got to do my very favorite part of Birthdays…..opening my presents!
I’m such a lucky dog to have so many presents to open, some from my mom and dad and some from some very sweet businesses!
I’m pretty much an expert at unwrapping gifts……my skills even landed me in a google commercial a few christmases ago! Check out how fast I am at unwrapping my gifts in the video below.
So just what did I score? Well mom and dad got me this handy Love Thy Beast Tote (that is plenty big enough for a 20lb dachshund like me), an Emergency First Aid Kit for the car, and this Indestructible Dog Toy (we’ll see how long it lasts with my choppers).
Grandma Lucy’s Treats smelled delicious and even looked like cute little teddy grahams. Full disclosure here, my dad thought they smelled so good that he tried them himself – and considering the ingredients are human grade, and made with no By-Products, no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors, I’m not surprised that he found them very tasty.
But sorry dad, I don’t plan on sharing – you’ll just have to snag your own from Chewy.com.
My new friends over at My Fabulous Puppy also sent me one of their handmade sweaters. It’s cute and snuggly and perfect for fall!
So thanks to everyone who made my Birthday extra special – I can’t believe I have to wait another whole YEAR before I can celebrate again!
Disclosure: I received a product from Chewy.com in exchange for a review, but all opinions are entirely my own.
On Sunday I celebrated my 6th Birthday, yay! And as a special adventure mom and dad decided to take me to the Yuengling Oktoberfest Dachshund Races in Bethlehem, PA.
Last year I attended the races and came up just inches short in the final race, taking home the reserve champion prize. So seeing as how it was my Birthday – I figured luck had to be on my side this time!
Before the races began I mixed and mingled (and sniffed a few butts) with the other racers. I even had fun meeting some of my fans!
But once it was time for the races to begin I put my game face on. Check out the video below to see all of my races…
That’s right, you’re looking at the 2014 Yuengling Oktoberfest Dachshund Race Champion right here! I won all 5 of my preliminary heats to make it to the final against a super fast weiner, Max!
I am so excited that I get to call myself Champion! The best part was when the crowd sang me Happy Birthday (sadly I couldn’t catch it on video).
And if you think these dachshund races look like fun, you can catch them again this upcoming weekend at the Bethlehem Steel Stacks. While I won’t be in attendance, you can still mix and mingle with lots of other lightning fast wieners!
Stay tuned, tomorrow I’ll be back to share all the Birthday goodies I received!

My mom and dad take lots of steps to insure that I’m safe, one of which includes making sure that I always have on proper identification – especially when I’m on the farm.
So when Tag Me Pet Tags sent me over one of their custom etched tags I was thrilled to have a stylish and fun way to wear my id.
As you can see the front was custom etched to include my name and logo (me in my super hero cape), how fun is that!
The back of my tag was etched with two phone numbers (but it can also include an address if you choose). I don’t know about you, but I think this is such a fun and awesome way to ID your pet!
Tag Me Pet Tags has a whole line of pre-designed and etched tags for your pets, and they are also able to make custom designs (like mine) as well. Here’s a few fun ones:
They also make stamped tags as well like these:
Personally I love the etched look!
You can pick up your own fun pet tag design from Tag Me Pet Tags, and be sure to use the coupon code AMMO10 for 10% off your order!
And now for the best part….
