Following Instinct

Following Instinct

Following Instinct - Ammo the Dachshund finds a Groundhog Hole

Some dogs are born with it, some dogs aren’t. And I can’t help that I was cursed blessed with this amazing nose that can lead me to a groundhog hole deep in the woods, through thickets and brush, where no one else knows it exists.

Following Instinct - Ammo the Dachshund finds a Groundhog Hole

My poor pal Trooper doesn’t have this gift, sometimes I’m surprised he even knows which way is up. (love ya Troop!)

Without me the world would be full of unknown groundhog holes, unattended, and unwatched.

Following Instinct - Ammo the Dachshund finds a Groundhog Hole

And for some reason, I don’t think my special skills are very appreciated around here!

Following Instinct - Ammo the Dachshund finds a Groundhog Hole

Sigh. It’s an uphill battle for me every single day. The struggle is real my friends. #DachshundLifeStruggle

Basketball and Snowballs

Basketball and Snowballs

Basketball and Snowballs - Ammo the Dachshund hangs with Cruisr the Band

Over the weekend I visited the park to shoot some hoops. Before I get to who exactly I was playing basketball with you have to first play this happy music while you read the rest of this post:

Basketball and Snowballs - Ammo the Dachshund hangs with Cruisr the Band

Why you ask must you play that music? Because not only did I shoot hoops with Dad, but also the lead singer to the band CRUISR….who also happens to be Dad’s old college roommate.

Basketball and Snowballs - Ammo the Dachshund hangs with Cruisr the Band

I tried to play it cool and not look like too much of a groupie, but in reality I just wanted to scream and say “Andy States touched my fur!!!” like all the fan girls that meet CRUISR on tour.

Basketball and Snowballs - Ammo the Dachshund hangs with Cruisr the Band

Hopefully I came off a bit cooler than that tough!

Not only did I get to shoot some hoops with Mr. States, but I also got to eat SnoBalls with him!!

Pelican’s SnoBalls is this brand-new frozen treat spot that opened up in my hometown, and I was excited to get to try them out.

Not only do they have treats for the humans, but they have dog friendly Pup Cups too.

The hardest part was waiting patiently for my frozen bowl of goodness to be ready.

Basketball and Snowballs - Ammo the Dachshund hangs with Cruisr the Band

It was worth the wait though!

Mom made sure to only let me eat small bites of the ice, in case of brain freeze….can dogs even get a brain freeze? Better safe than sorry I guess!

Overall it was a fantastic way to spend one of the warmest days so far this Spring. Do you take your dog for frozen treats in the summer?

Don’t forget to check out the super catchy summertime music from my friends at CRUISR!Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

Practicing in Public

Practicing in Public

Practicing in Public - Ammo the Dachshund visits Lowes

It’s that time of year when it seems I find myself visiting the hardware store almost every weekend. Mom and Dad are always coming up with projects that need to be done around the house in the Spring. Mom says it’s the perfect place for me to tag along and practice all my “behaving in public” skills, as I inevitably get a little rusty over the winter.

Practicing in Public - Ammo the Dachshund visits Lowes

I beg to differ on the “rusty” part, I mean just look how good my sit/stay is!

Practicing in Public - Ammo the Dachshund visits Lowes

I’ve also got the healing next to the shopping cart down too!

Practicing in Public - Ammo the Dachshund visits Lowes

And my self control (even when I smell critters in the garden center) is pretty good too (well most of the time!).

But the very hardest part for me……trying to keep up with Dad in the hardware store! #ShortLegProblems

Drool Worthy TRU harvest® Dog Treats

Drool Worthy TRU harvest® Dog Treats

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Lunchbox but all opinions are my own and I only share products I think you and your pets will love.

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

When you’re a dog it can sometimes be difficult to communicate to the humans exactly what you want. While we might not be able to speak in the true sense, we have become rather creative in expressing what we like and dislike to our humans.

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

That’s exactly what happened when these new TRU harvest® treats from Walmart recently showed up at the farm!

See these brand new treats are made with Ancient Grains (Barley, Spelt, and Quinoa), which are naturally low in fat and contain more nutrients than common grains. They also contain NO corn, soy, wheat, artificial colors or flavors, or poultry by-products. And the very first ingredient is REAL meat….real meat you say….

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

Mom got Trooper and I drooling by first tempting us with TRU harvest® with Ancient Grains Chewy Bars with barley, spelt & quinoa. They come in a Chicken, Cheese, & Tomato Flavor or the Turkey & Cranberry Flavor.

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

Then as if that weren’t enough she whipped out the TRU harvest® with Ancient Grains Wavy Strips with barley, spelt & quinoa! They also come in two flavors, Chicken & Sweet Potato or Turkey & Pumpkin.

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

To make things worse, Trooper and his tall self stole a bite before I even got to taste them! The nerve!

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

It was finally time to break out the big guns and exercise my right to freedom of speech. Mom was going to surely know EXACTLY what I wanted this time!

And from what I hear, I’m not the only one begging for more of these treats…just check out the video below….

I’ll be honest, the dogs in that video are pretty good at telling their humans what they want, but they’ve got nothing on Trooper and I…

Ok, well Trooper is a bit of a lost soul, but I’m pretty darn good at expressing myself!

So if you don’t want to be the victim of your dog’s communication skills, then you might want to grab them some TRU harvest® Dog Treats with Ancient Grains, found exclusively at Walmart.

Drool Worthy TRU Harvest Dog Treats from Walmart #sponsored

You can save $1.00 off your next TRU harvest® with Ancient Grains dog treats purchase at Walmart. Just click here for coupon.

What do you think your dog would do to let you know they want to try a bite of the TRU harvest® treats? Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

A Safe Adjustable Leash Option for Dogs + A Giveaway

A Safe Adjustable Leash Option for Dogs + A Giveaway

Disclaimer: this post and giveaway is brought to you by Ruffwear and does contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own, and I only share products I think you and your dog will love!

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

It’s that time of year when one of my favorite pet companies, Ruffwear, comes out with their new Spring gear!

I was super excited this time around to be able to test out their new Slackline Leash.

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

At first glance it may look just like an ordinary dog leash, but I can tell you it is not.

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

The Ruffwear Slackline Leash is an adjustable-length leash from 6 feet to 3.5 feet. Its adjustable length can be fully extended for relaxed walks, or shortened for more control as needed.

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

Essentially this leash replaces those highly dangerous retractable leashes – which I don’t really recommend.

Mom and Dad love the padded handle which also includes a convenient accessory loop for pick up bags or small clip-on items.

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

The Slackline leash can also be handheld or waist-worn with the handy buckle, which also makes it easy if you ever need to tie your dog while out on a walk.

It’s also got reflective trim for safety, and comes in 4 fun colors: Twilight Grey (pictured), Meadow Green, Purple Dusk and Kokanee Red.

A Safe Adjustable Length Dog Leash from Ruffwear + A Giveaway

And incase you are wondering, there is still plenty of length to this leash when extended to allow me to explore all the fascinating places I find on my walks! And can still quickly shorten when I need to stay closer to mom and dad.

The Slackline Leash has been great for my walks to work in the morning, where sometimes I need to stay closer to mom incase of oncoming traffic. But don’t worry, I also always practice looking both ways before I cross the street (as seen in the video above).

You can fetch the new Ruffwear Slackline Leash for your dog for $39.95 (with FREE SHIPPING for orders over $75)!

And now for the best part….

The Night’s Watch

The Night’s Watch

The Night's Watch // Ammo the Dachshund

Being a farm dog means your guard dog duties never end.

The Night's Watch // Ammo the Dachshund

Even as darkness begins to fall Trooper always takes his watch dog post with pride.

The Night's Watch // Ammo the Dachshund

Although the job is always a little more bearable with friends, so I’m always ready to join him for the Night’s Watch.

The Night's Watch // Ammo the Dachshund

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

The Night's Watch // Ammo the Dachshund

Well, it’s a good thing Trooper and I are already neutered!Ammo the Dachshund // Blog Signature // Celebrity

What it Looks like to be a Spoiled Dog

Spoiled Dog // Ammo the Dachshund

Some people out there might think I’m a spoiled dog. While I’m not sure I totally agree, I can admit that I do enjoy some luxuries (which I knowingly imply sad puppy dog eyes to get mom and dad to oblige to)….

Spoiled or not, I’m never going to stop asking for back rubs from mom and dad! 😉

Pet Shower and Massager in One + A Giveaway

Pet Shower and Massager in One + A Giveaway

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

MIU Pet Shower and Messager in one + A Giveaway

So it’s totally that time of year when Trooper and I enjoy rolling in mud and generally getting pretty dirty on the farm (and one of us really loves to go down dirty groundhog holes). So it comes at no surprise that we find ourselves in the bath A LOT.

Thanks to my new friends at MIU Pet Trooper and I now have a new tool to make bath time a bit quicker (so we can get back to all that running around on the farm!)

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

The MIU Pet Multi-Functional Handheld Pet Shower is a tool designed to make bathing simple again with single hand operation.

It comes with a shower head, stainless steel hose, and 4 hose adapters to fit most faucets.

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

The shower head has an easy to reach button on the side to control the flow of water, plastic prongs that provide gentle massage and makes your pet bathing enjoyable, and under that blue cap on the bottom is an opening that allows you to add soap to the shower head that can be released with the touch of another button.

While this pet shower is designed for indoor and outdoor use, the attachments that come with it are designed to hook to a bathroom shower head or indoor faucet, similar to the one pictured below:

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

Since I didn’t have the right shower or faucet at my house I decided to test out the shower in the barn wash stall. Mom had to get a little creative with the how to attach the MIU Pet hose to the barn hose – but after picking up a few hose attachments at the hardware store we were ready for a bath.

Well, technically Trooper was ready for a bath! (it’s still a bit too cold for me and my short hair to have a bath outside this time of year).

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

So after adding some soap to the shower head, we were ready to get Trooper all squeaky clean!

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

Trooper has the ideal hair type for this type of shower head, because the massaging prongs came in real handy with getting soap and water deep into his thick coat of hair.

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

The one-handed design of this pet shower came in real handy. With one hand free to keep Trooper from running off, the other hand could easily bathe the dog without having to put down the hose in search of soap or a brush….because it’s all right there!

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

All squeaky clean after his bath!

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

While the MIU Pet Shower can do many things, there is one thing it can’t do….keep Trooper from rubbing off his clean dog smell on the barn walls!

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

While Trooper loved that his bath time was cut in half, I loved that he was the one that had to test it instead of me! 😉 I’ll reserve my baths for the 80 degree weather, thank you very much.

MIU Pet Shower and Massager in one + A Giveaway

Trooper wasn’t the only one that got to test the MIU Pet Shower though, even the horses found a use for it!

You can fetch the MIU Pet Shower from Amazon, and be sure to check out more of their pet products on the MIU Pet Website.

Bonus! You can save 20% your next order with code MPTOAMMO

And now for the best part….
