Ammo the Dachshund // Super Hero with a Heart of Gold

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 8

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol 8

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol. 8

Well, another month has passed and suddenly Baby P is 8 months old! My bestest buddy is growing up much too quickly, and already so much has changed in the last month.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol. 8

With everyday that passes Miss P’s personality comes out more and more. And she definitely takes after her big brother (me), because she’s got a whole lot of sass and spunk!

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol. 8

We’re still thick as thieves, and since Baby P started crawling just after she turned 7 months – we’re both getting into lots of mischief now.

Adventures of Ammo + Baby P: Vol. 8

While we both like a lot of the same things (eating, exploring, and chewing on stuff), we do still differ in our love of naps. Miss P can go all day long with only two 30 minute naps, and I still need my 7-8 hour long naps! They might be pushing 9 these days though, because Miss P could run circles around me and she’s oh-so-exhausting.

But that’s ok, because when she’s awake she’s so much fun to play with. She even has a special name for me, “Nano” – pretty soon I’m sure it will sound more like Ammo, but for now Nano it is!

Love you Baby P, can’t wait for even more fun as Mom and Dad say you’re getting closer and closer to walking everyday! Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Dog Toys that Help Widows & Orphans + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by WO Design. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love.

A Dog Toy that Helps Women & Children in Ethiopia + A Giveaway

As dogs there are only a few things Trooper and I think about on a daily basis: Eat, Sleep, Play. Repeat. But what if I told you by doing one of those things there is a way you could help others? Pretty cool, right?

A Dog Toy that Helps Women & Children in Ethiopia + A Giveaway

See my friends over at WO Design have come out with an interactive chew toy (the WO Bone) and a flying disc/tug toy (the WO Disc) that help provide meals for widows & orphans in Ethiopia with every purchase. As of the fall of 2016, WO Design has successfully provided over 13,000 meals for widows & orphans in Ethiopia and has plans for providing aid in other parts of the world (with your help) as well.

A Dog Toy that Helps Women & Children in Ethiopia + A Giveaway

With each WO product you purchase it directly funds meals for widows and orphans globally. WO Design has partnered with an organization in Ethiopia called Bring Love In (BLI) to help feed orphans and widows in their organization, and these meals often represent the highest amount of nutrition that these folks get in any given day.

A Dog Toy that Helps Women & Children in Ethiopia + A Giveaway

Now while I love a company that’s mission is to help others, we have to address the important stuff in this review too….like the toys!

Trooper and I got to test out the WO Disc and the WO Bone.

A Dog Toy that Helps Women & Children in Ethiopia + A Giveaway

Both toys are made from a soft and durable WO pet material that is BPA-free, phthalate-free, non-toxic and FDA compliant.

We even took laps around the house with the WO Bone just to be sure.

A Dog and His Girl

A Dog and His Girl

While it’s true that Baby P and I have already been on so many adventures together (I did after all take her on her very first 14 hour road trip), it wasn’t until fairly recently that she REALLY started taking an interest in me. Yes, she’s loved me from day 1, but now she actually plays with me!

A Dog And His Girl

I’m so excited to have a playmate, and I’m teaching her all of my favorite games (barking and tug of war mainly), just see for yourself:

I’m going to have to order her a super hero cape to match mine soon, because boy are we going to have lots of super things to do in our future together!

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Disclaimer: This post is an advertisement. All opinions are my own, and I only share products with my readers that I think you and your pets will love!

On The Move - Keep Tabs on all the "kids" - Trax GPS

With every day that passes my little sister becomes more and more mobile.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

While she may technically be moving she’s not exactly great at the whole “mobile” thing yet….especially the backing up part! Which means mom has to keep her eyes glued to Baby P pretty much all the time.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Now I’m a good dog 90% of the time (hey, we can’t all be perfect), and that other 10%….well, I sort of like to push the boundaries a little bit. What can I say, I am a stubborn DACHSHUND!

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Mainly though, I just like to run (well and hunt, and dig, and roll in stinky stuff….but that’s a story for another day). So when mom has eyes on Baby P, she can’t keep tabs on me too – especially when I’m enjoying my time out on the farm.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Lucky for my mom she has had a secret weapon for many years now, the Trax GPS Tracker for Pets. While you might remember me mentioning Trax before, this time I got to take the newer Trax Play for a spin. Being the World’s smallest and lightest live GPS tracker on the market, it’s perfectly sized for a little dog like me!

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Mom breathes a little easier when I’m wearing my Trax Play because she can worry more about making sure my sister doesn’t drive off a cliff, and less about where I’m wandering. Moms…..they are always worrying about their “kids”!

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

While I’ve tried many GPS trackers over the years, one of the main reasons my family keeps coming back to Trax as their favorite is because of the ability to add multiple custom geo-fences.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Geo-fences are basically “safe areas” that your pet can be, but should I wander too far and leave the geo-fence then mom gets a text alert on her phone to let her know I left the vicinity. Most of the other Pet GPS Trackers out there only allow you to create circular radiuses and only one per unit, but with Trax you can really be custom about your pet’s safe area.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Another cool feature is the augmented reality, where you can use your phone’s camera to locate your pet. When you point the camera in your dogs direction, an icon, with a distance indicator, will guide you to their location. Pretty cool, even if it does give away all of my secret ground hog hole locations!

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

Battery life in the new Trax Play is new and improved too, lasting up to 3 days on one charge! The only thing that would make Trax even better in mom’s eyes is if they added a sound locater (then I wouldn’t have to wear my annoying bells on the farm!).

You can learn more about all the features of the Trax Play on their website.

How the Trax GPS Tracker Can Make Life Easier

You can shop Trax Play which is available with a data plan for as low as $4.00/month – which is much lower than many comparable products on the market. Another reason why we love them!

And what’s even better is you can use code ammo10 for 10% off your purchase! Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

*Please note a data plan is necessary in order to use the Trax Play device.

Memories

Memories

Lately I’ve been very very busy. Not the kind of busy where you have a mile long to-do list, but the kind of busy that just makes you want to drop everything and soak it all in. I’ve been very busy making memories with my family!

From my little sister’s first crawl (which not to brag, but she didn’t crawl towards mom and dad, no instead she crawled towards me!!), and sledding with my cousins and ponies – these are the memories that I’m going to treasure forever.

Family Memories

Yup, this one is totally for the scrapbook!

I hope you’ve been busy making memories too. Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

No Big Woof

No Big Woof

No Big Woof

Just yesterday mom snapped this photo of me while Dad was working on a project at the shop. Some may be surprised that I was able to nap through a power drill right by my bed, but there is a really good reason as to why this sort of thing doesn’t bother me. See, my mom and dad are artists and DIYers, which means that power tools are pretty much NO BIG WOOF to me anymore.

Pet Friendly Kitchen Renovation via Ammo the Dachshund

I made it through an entire Kitchen remodel in 2015.

Ammo the Dachshund // The Building of a Farmhouse

I helped with excavation on the farm.

Ammo the Dachshund // Post and Beam House Construction

I helped Trooper with his post and beam house in 2012.

Ammo the Dachshund // On the Job // Construction

I helped lay radiant flooring.

Ammo the Dachshund // Puppy // Farmwork

And on my VERY first day with my new family I helped build fencing.

So yup, power tools are NO BIG WOOF.

Now vacuum cleaners ….that’s a whole other story. Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is Caring

So every time I turn around lately it seems my sister is eating. For someone so tiny she eats so very frequently. Lucky!

Sharing is Caring

I also started to take note that said eating was very very messy.

Sharing is Caring

Now occasionally this messiness would end up on the floor (score!), but most of the time mom whisked it away before I could get so much as a lick. And more often than not it was the icky stuff anyway (you know, the vegetables).

Sharing is Caring

As the weeks passed I decided to take matters into my own paws.

Sharing is Caring

But I guess they call them high chairs for a reason! And I wasn’t really getting that much closer to my end goal.

Sharing is Caring

But then one day, as luck would have it, I noticed a tiny little hand peeking down from the high chair.

Sharing is Caring

My sister was sharing. IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

Baby P, I love you more everyday. xoxo, your best pal and big brother Ammo. Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with the GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with the GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: This post and giveaway is brought to you by GoPure. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your pets will love.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Water – it’s absolutely necessary for all of us to survive, but have you thought about how safe and clean your own pet’s water is?

My mom has always provided me with fresh water, and even when the public water at work seemed a little cloudy my mom didn’t hesitate to lug in a jug of clean water from home just so I could have the best!

But lugging in a jug of water weekly is a hassle, so I was so excited to tell my mom about a new way to keep my water purified so we could ditch the jug!

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Meet the GoPure Water Purifier for pets!

GoPure Pod keeps your dog or cat healthy by providing them plenty of fresh, clean water. Your tap water may contain lead, fluoride or other chemicals proven to be dangerous for pets. GoPure Pet will remove these impurities and other contaminants.

And the truth is, most pet’s water bowls aren’t cleaned often enough, creating the perfect environment for bacteria growth. But now there is a simple way to ensure your pet’s drinking water is safe.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

The GoPure Pod couldn’t be simpler to use (I mean I could totally do it if I had opposable thumbs!), and it can be used with any water bowl for up to 6 months with no need to change a filter.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

With high-strength suction cups it attaches to the bottom of your pet’s bowl (and trust me, your dog or cat definitely won’t be able to get this thing off themselves).

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Then simply fill with water and the pod begins it’s work.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Water continuously flows through openings in the exterior shell (the blue part) and is then purified through the GoPure Pod that is safely attached to the base of your dog’s bowl.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

For the past few weeks now I’ve been drinking the tap water at work with the GoPure Pod. Mom has noticed that water looks much clearer than it ever has, and I’m relieved to know that the water I’m consuming is safe.

Safe Drinking Water for Pets with GoPure Pod + A Giveaway

Did you know pet dishes are one of the main spots for germs to grow in the home? Pets have bacterial microbes in their mouths that be can be transferred to their water bowls, which in turn provides an environment for bacteria to grow.

Um yea, that’s pretty gross. Well now I can happily say….not in my water bowl…thanks to GoPure Pod!

You can help ensure your pet’s water is safe and clean by visiting GoPure Pod.

And now for the best part….
