Minnow and Ammo on Animal Planet, The Year in Pup Culture

On December 22, 2012 Animal Planet aired a new show called The Year in Pup Culture.

The Year in Pup Culture // Ammo the Dachshund on Animal Planet


It’s an action-packed hour of non-stop, over-the-top cuteness. THE YEAR IN PUP CULTURE looks back at the defining moments of 2012 as only Animal Planet can — with puppies! These adorable pups reenact the most memorable moments of the year, including scenes from top blockbuster movies and ripped-from-the headline bits. If these moments piqued public interest in 2012, they are getting “puppified” in the cutest hour on television.

The exciting thing about this show is that they had requested to use a clip of Minnow and Ammo playing together on the farm. This is the third Animal Planet Show which has shared clips of my boys, America’s Cutest Dogs, America’s Cutest Cats, and now The Year in Pup Culture. Well when I actually got to watch the boys on tv, I was excited to see that they had compared them to the Kardashians! I must admit, my guilty pleasure is watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Check out the boys in their debut:

Oh yes, you heard right – Ammo and Minnow are like the Kim & Kanye of Animal Planet! Well, except the fact that we’re best friends instead of lovers, although they do love each other dearly. Proof:

Ammo and Minnow

I’m pretty sure they now think this means they get designer dog and pony gear since they are associated with the Kardashian clan. Or at least a feature on Khloe Kardashian’s or Kim Kardashian’s Blog?

We’ll keep dreaming. 🙂

Announcing the Super Pony! DVD Release

The day has finally come! It’s time to announce the official release of the brand-new Super Pony DVD, staring the talented Minnow from Painting Pony and his sidekick, Ammo the Dachshund!

Super Pony DVD! Now available at Painting Pony

Thanks to my talented brother and Depthink Productions, we began filming for the DVD this past summer, and I’m so excited that it’s finally ready to share with everyone! I think everyone will really enjoy getting to learn more about all the ponies and watch several of Minnow & Ammo’s favorite “super” performances.

Check out the DVD Trailer:


Trainer, Kyley DiLuigi, introduces us to Super Pony, the alter ego of the talented Chincoteague Pony, Minnow! Watch as he shows us some of his favorite trick performances, many of which have been performed at expos, fairs, schools, and even the Annual Chincoteague Pony Penning. Several performances also include Minnow’s lovable sidekick, Ammo the Dachshund, as well as other members of the Painting Pony crew. In addition to 5 featured videos, this DVD also contains 2 bonus videos: a visit to Iron Horse Farm, home to the Painting Ponies; and a talk given by Kyley about everyone’s favorite Chincoteague Pony, Misty of Chincoteague.

Super Pony DVD! Now available at Painting Pony


In 2007, Painting Pony was founded when Kyley DiLuigi decided to bring her paints from art school out to the farm where she kept her 14-year-old pony, Minnow. That cold winter day Minnow became the World’s First Painting Chincoteague Pony as he created his very first masterpiece. As it became evident that Minnow had a gift that he truly loved, the paintings he created began to pile higher and higher. Feeling the need to share Minnow’s art with the world, Kyley started and the rest is history!

School Days

Last Friday I took Ammo the Dachshund on a special outing to my Elementary School, Uwchlan Hills. It was Read Across America Week as well as Dr. Suess’ Birthday – and Ammo came along to help me read to the kids as well as show off some of his favorite tricks.

Ammo is wonderful with kids, and every time I see him at a public event like this it reminds me that I really want to get him therapy dog certified. I also have plans to get him his Canine Good Citizen Certification as well.

Ammo was a huge hit with the 3rd grade class we entertained and we even got to share the ponies’ video at the end. We had so much fun that neither one of us wanted to go back to work, but perhaps we’ll get to visit again soon.

You can see more photos and read all about Ammo’s big adventure HERE.

Live Performance! Super Dog vs. Super Pony

Do you remember when Minnow and Ammo made their first Elementary School Visit back in May? Well, the day has finally come – their live performance video is complete! My brother Taylor (the filmmaker) shot and edited this whole video – and it turned out really cool!

We can’t wait to make more school visits in the future – making kids laugh is so much fun!

If you are having trouble viewing the version above, try the one below (without the super cool super hero music):

Tomorrow we’ll resume with out pony penning recap! Yeah!

Ammo the Painting Dachshund

We’ve secretly been working on a little project over at Painting Pony. I’m sure you’ve probably already guessed what it is by now. So without further adieu, I introduce to you….


That’s right, on June 10th, 2011 Ammo created his very first watercolor painting. We all knew it was coming someday, considering he spends enough of his time with his painting pony friends.

I guess you could say he was destined to follow in the family footsteps – although he has some mighty BIG shoes to fill.

Ammo's first painting "My Sunshine"

But, Ammo’s a pretty talented guy, and I have the feeling that the ponies are going to pretty jealous of him in no time! I actually could hardly believe my eyes when I saw his first masterpiece – it is quite stunning in person.

Ammo takes his painting talent pretty seriously, and he likes to take his time creating these beautiful paintings. So right now we only have one of his paintings available for sale. We will certainly have more in the future – and will be sure to let you know as they are created.

"Backyard Bliss" by Ammo the Dachshund

Ammo painted this on June 18th, 2011 and it is available for purchase in our shop. Every painting Ammo sells we donate 5% to some of his favorite charities like the Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue, The Mainline Animal Rescue, and the SPCA. After all, with great talent comes great responsibility, and helping those in need is always a noble cause.

And because it’s always fun to see Ammo in action, we’ve made a little video so everyone can see this little guy’s talented paws at work!

If you would like to see more pictures and hear about what Ammo thinks about his first few creations, be sure to head on over to his blog,!
