Throwback Thursday: Halloween Past

With Halloween just around the corner I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my VERY FIRST Halloween with my family!

Trooper dressed up as a Pony (complete with western rider and saddle on his back) and I dressed up as a cute little Dinosaur.

Mom said it would of been more appropriate if I had dressed as a T-Rex (on account of my short stubby arms)…..I’m laughing real hard mom, real hard!

Throwback Thursday: Halloween Past // Ammo the Dachshund

Apparently I missed the memo that Dinosaurs are supposed to be bigger and badder that ponies though, because Trooper seemed to keep trying to get a taste of Dinosaur meat.

You can check out some more photos from my very first Halloween with Trooper on the Painting Pony Blog.

Fair Hill International 2014

Just like last year, I attended the Fairhill International event to watch one of the most prestigious international three day horse events in the world this past weekend.

This time I was a seasoned pro on the school bus ride over to the grounds. I made sure to assure all the other dogs on the bus that we weren’t in fact headed for school (because who goes to school on a Sunday?).

My first stop on the grounds…..lunch! And with lots of choices to choose from I begged mom to get the steak sandwich wrap….mmmm…..steak.

Next I hit up the shopping tents – in which all the venders commented on how I was the best dressed dog there! (I do try my best)

Then it was time for the main event….Show Jumping! I spent the afternoon watching as Jennie Brannigan and her horse, Cambalda, took home the Gold!

By the end of the day I was exhausted from “riding every stride” with the competitors as I cheered them on!

Good news is I have an entire year to rest up for next year’s event! Ammo the Dachshund

Fall is in the Air

It’s that time of year when the sun sets earlier, the leaves change a pretty color, and you have to bundle up a little more on the farm! Here’s a fun little collection of photos from my recent fall fun around the farm.

Throwback Thursday: Wiggly Wrestlers

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!

Picking Pumpkins

Picking Pumpkins // Ammo the Dachshund

Over the weekend mom and dad took me to pick out my Halloweenie pumpkins.

Picking Pumpkins // Ammo the Dachshund

And oh boy where there pumpkins galore to choose from!

Picking Pumpkins // Ammo the Dachshund

But not to worry, this nose is very experienced at picking out the very best carving pumpkins!

Picking Pumpkins // Ammo the Dachshund

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.Ammo the Dachshund

Fall with Martha Stewart

A couple of months ago Trooper and I got the opportunity to have a little fashion show with the new Martha Stewart Fall Pet Line, available at Petsmart.

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!

Martha Stewart Pets Fall Line // Ammo the Dachshund

Especially since they are the PERFECT thing to put everyone in the Halloweenie mood!

Martha Stewart Pets Fall Line // Ammo the Dachshund

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!

Paw Street Bakery Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

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.

Paw Street Barkery Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

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.

The good thing about reviewing cookies is that there’s lots of taste testing required.

Paw Street Barkery Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

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.
