Sharing Cookies with Good Buddies

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

When Chewy.com sent me some of their Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies recently I knew exactly what to do with them.

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

Since I’m the nicest guy around I decided to share them with my own Good Buddy, Trooper!

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

These made in the USA treats are packed with healthy ingredients, so I knew I was sharing something my best friend would love. (he’s a stickler for eating healthy)

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

As you can see, Trooper was ecstatic when I told him he would get to help me eat these yummy Good Buddy treats.

Trooper and I scarfed our cookies so fast that we didn’t realize until after that our other pal Blitz the pony was feeling a bit left out on the cookie front.

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

Since these Good Buddy treats are made from Whole Wheat Flour, Rolled Oats, Canola Oil, Peanut Butter, Whey Powder, Garlic Powder, Eggs, and Dried Kelp – mom said it would be fine if we wanted to share with Blitz the pony too.

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

After tasting a bite, Blitz agreed that the Peanut Butter Good Buddy cookies are better left for the dogs.

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

And I won’t lie, I’m a bit relieved, because the bag is starting to weigh a bit less!

Chewy.com Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies // Ammo the Dachshund

And I’m starting to get concerned that my buddies might need to go on a diet! Or at least find someone else’s cookies to share, because the rest are mine, all mine!

You can fetch your own Good Buddy Peanut Butter Cookies from Chewy.com for about $4. Ammo the Dachshund

My Happy Park Dog Birth Certificate Review & Giveaway

In my house I’m treated just like any other member of the family, and my mom and dad care for me just like they would any human child (with the exception that I have to do my business outside….what’s up with that?).

So when my new friends over at My Happy Park offered to send me one of their dog birth certificates I thought to myself….I should have had one of these a long time ago!

Since my birthdate is known I decided to choose one of My Happy Park’s Birth Certificates in the Stormy Monday design.

Once it arrived I couldn’t help but get straight to work picking out some great matting and frames to display it in, on account that I work at the best frame shop in town!

My Birth Certificate showed my name, birth location & date, breed, birthstone, zodiac sign, flower, as well as a few dachshund characteristics and hobbies & interests.

After spending some time helping mom to pick out the perfect matting and frame, a few weeks later my Birth Certificate was ready to hang on the wall!

Friday Fetch: Iota GPS Pet Tracker

Friday Fetch: Iota GPS Pet Tracker

My mom has been on the lookout for a GPS tracker for me for a long time. I’ve yet to make the plunge into having my every move tracked 24/7 (aside from mom and dad keeping a hawks eye watch on me at all times), mostly because mom claims she hasn’t found the perfect one for me yet.

Then I stumbled across the Iota on Kickstarter, which is the smallest, longest-lasting GPS tracker in the world with a lure of a new nationwide network with no monthly fees (unlike most of it’s counterparts). With only 5 days left to help push the Iota into production on Kickstarter I think I might be ready to take the plunge into having my every move monitored (if only to help my mom and dad sleep sounder)!

Check out the video to find out more about the Iota.

Lake Dogs

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

By now you probably know that hanging out at the lake is one of my favorite things to do in the summer. I love it so much that whenever I can I like to bring my dog friends to the lake with me too. You might remember a few summers back when I introduced my gal pal Shilah to the lake when she was just 1 year old.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Well it seems my gal pals keep getting younger and younger (*wink*), and this time I brought along my new friend Maya the rescue pup to the lake.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

It was a bit more of an overcast type of day, and I was a bit worried we might get rained on, but you know what…..when you go to the lake you gotta expect to get wet!

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

This time I decided to rent a double kayak with my mom and dad. Since the water was a little cooler I didn’t feel like getting as wet so a kayak seemed to be the way to go.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Maya started out on the kayak too so that she could get her sea legs.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

And it didn’t take long for her to take the obligatory accidental lake plunge. Don’t worry Maya, we’ve all been there!

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

But Maya didn’t let a little dip in the lake discourage her, she hopped right back on and even tried her paw on the paddleboard too.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

She even got brave enough to take a purposeful plunge later on in the day (which my camera crew totally missed!)

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

And incase you’re wondering, life guard Ammo was on duty the whole time and I kept a watchful eye on my young puppy friend.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

Needless to say I was very glad she figured out the whole swimming thing on her own, because I was much too comfortable to perform any daring rescues!

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that this won’t be Maya’s last time on the lake.

Lake Dogs // Summer // Ammo the Dachshund

After all, how could you not come back with a view like this! Ammo the Dachshund

Clean Plate Club

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

You may recall my shopping trip a few weeks ago with mom and dad to pick out a new dishwasher for my kitchen. Well, fast forward to this past weekend and my dish washing replacement finally arrived!

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

According to mom and dad this is the year of the new kitchen……which by my best guess will take probably about a year to complete at the pace my parents go! But who’s rushing. And since the dishwasher has been leaking all over the floor I guess it was the very first thing to get the big boot.

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

While mom and dad seemed excited to have a new appliance (the first one ever!) I on the other hand found myself sulking that it was here.

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

Not only did it come with a whole new set of rules for me (no more standing on the dishwasher door to lick plates to name a few), but it didn’t even smell like anything great, like cookies, bacon, or peanut butter!

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

Dad got right to work installing the new dishwasher, while I looked on with distain.

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

The only real fun thing I can say about the new appliance is that the packaging made for a little entertainment. Although it would of been more fun if mom had let me shred it to bits!

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

Before my new dishwasher was completely installed I tried my hardest one last time to convince mom and dad that the only thing they needed for clean plates was me! Trust me, I can do the job better than any fancy dishwasher.

Clean Plate Club // Kitchen Remodel // Ammo the Dachshund

But alas, the thing got installed anyway. Sigh. I guess you win some and you lose some. Ammo the Dachshund

Mom really liked the idea of training me to use the mat to “park myself” when we were out and about (like at a restaurant).

Park It Mat Review & Giveaway // Peach Industries // Ammo the Dachshund

In fact, I even took my new Park It Mat on an adventure over the weekend.

Watch This

Watch This // Training Horses Through Mimicking // Ammo the Dachshund

Whenever it’s time to work on training the ponies I’m never too far as I love offering encouraging words to my ponies as they learn new skills and tricks.

Watch This // Training Horses Through Mimicking // Ammo the Dachshund

My buddy Boomerang here is learning how to be more comfortable on a teeter totter.

Watch This // Training Horses Through Mimicking // Ammo the Dachshund

Sometimes though, the ponies learn best by watching someone else do it first. So I offer up my skills, and tell Boomerang to watch this as I plod effortlessly across the teeter totter. In theory, watching someone else do it helps my ponies to realize it’s not as scary as it seems.

Watch This // Training Horses Through Mimicking // Ammo the Dachshund

Although it would also help if Boomerang was actually paying attention instead of sneaking grass behind me! Sigh. Ammo the Dachshund
