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,!

Traveling Super Pony

Minnow, Ammo and I are on the road and headed to Doswell, Virginia for the Equine Extravaganza to compete in a talent contest. Nervous, excited – it’s a mixed bag of emotions. This is the first time we’ll be competing with our tricks. 6 years ago I taught Minnow his very first trick, and never did I imagine that someday we would be performing in front of thousands. Now our performances have become something that myself (and the pony & dog) look forward to. We enjoy the smiling faces, and love to receive letters in the mail about how the boys have touched peoples lives.

In the hopes that we can brighten your day a little bit too, here’s a video of the boys practicing for our performance. It’s still a work in progress here – and we will be sure to have a full recap of the weekend’s events when we return, but we hope it will make you laugh.
