It has arrived!!

Hi everybody! 

It's here! After weeks of waiting, it's finally here!
 . . . . No, I don't mean Spring , it is still plenty cold and snowy in these parts. 


BarkBox!! 
We decided to start a 6 month subscription to barkBox a few weeks back , and we were so happy to finally receive it yesterday! 

I have never ordered anything like this before, so I was not to sure what to expect.

At first glance , I have to be honest , I was a little disappointed. 
The box itself was much smaller then I expected.

However the contents of the box satisfied me once we opened and viewed everything inside.
The theme this month is breakfast, so everything in the box was breakfast related.






This is a "Ruv note" from barkbox.
It reads : To the Dog of the House,
We wanted to let you know that we've included an item that's a little different than whats depicted on your infocard. We are excited to share this item with you, dear dog, we hope you'll love it as much as we do. Bum sniffs and belly scratches, enjoy your BarkBox.
Ruvs ya, 
BarkBox


I thought that was super cute!

First up for the treats ,we have Wild Pacific Maple Glazed Salmon with blueberries recipe.
I was so happy to see that that these are all naturally made right here in Canada!


As you can plainly see , the pack LOVED them! 



Next up we have , Organic Dog biscuits. By Wagatha's . 
Flavor : Apples , bananas , and maple oats.


When I opened this box , my mouth started to water! I am not even joking! The aroma of the apples, bananas and maple oats was very strong and smelled like pancakes! 

The pack LOVED these! 

Next up we have Wheat free Twistix. 
These treats remove plaque , tarter , and freshens their breath. They are meant for oral hygiene , but also are a delicious flavor that they really enjoyed!
Flavor : yogurt , banana!



These smelled delicious as well!! Oh to be a dog when this BarkBox came in the mail! 
How come half the food I eat doesn't smell this good? BOL 




Moving on , the box came with two toys . One piece of bacon (left) with a squeaker in it , and scents that drove them wild!  And one floaty toy (right) to play with in the summer when we go to the beach!




The floaty toy is very durable and has not yet been chewed to bits, and I look forward to watching the pack chase after it this summer.
The bacon toy , they did love , they fought over it , it smelled great .
However it lasted about 5 minutes. 
Also, when i ordered my box , I ordered for an extra large breed , and this toy is relatively small.
I was expecting something a little bigger.
But all in all, they did have a blast playing with it!



The pack was so excited to open their package , they even posed for me and waited patiently!
I was impressed!!





So, in conclusion, we were happy with the box. The huskies had fun with it, and really enjoyed the treats and that is whats important!

  8. I have looked into the Barkbox and am kind fence sitting about ordering one. I like getting locally made treats for Buddy and we have a holistic pet store in our city that does have great treats so feel good about buying locally. Buddy would have destroyed those toys in about 30 seconds! The Barkbox is a neat idea though!

    1. Well if you decide to get one, don't forget your $5 off with that code!
      I understand how you feel though, and your reasons are great for not getting one. On the upside though it is neat to get "surprised" every month with not knowing what is coming in the boxes and the dogs really enjoyed getting a surprise in the mail as well.

  12. Darn, I thought you meant spring too....ha ha ha!
    We just got our first Bark Box this week too!!! Now, we ordered the medium size and got almost all of the same stuff....except we didn't get the floaty toy, which is OK, because we already have some of those (the exact same one by West Paw)...which we love because they are pretty much indestructible! We got the biggie bone chewy toy that can be stuffed.
    It was so funny when you said you were disappointed that the box was so small....I thought the exact same thing when I saw it!! But I was happy with what was in it for sure, oh, and the dogs were too! lol

    1. Oh did you? Pawsome!!! Yes, I was definitely expecting a bigger box lol! And I am not sure why they ask what size of dog you have if everybody gets the same thing. Ah well!!! The dogs were happy and that's what counts!!
      M glad your pups were happy also!!! Are you going to be posting about it?

  14. Oh! That looks like a lot of fun. I absolutely LOVE the very first picture you posted of one of your huskies... (what is his or her name?) The eyes are so intensely glued to the treat being handed out... it really did make me BOL!!

    This sounds like a dangerously fun idea... we love getting packages in the mail...

    P.S. We voted for Lexus and tweeted to our followers. Good luck!

    1. If you are referring to the collage photo, you are talking about my girl Lexus! She is a doll, that's for sure! Her eyes go like that every time I give her a treat! BOL!!!! It's priceless!!!
      It is super fun to get a BarkBox in the mail! The dogs loved it!
      BTW if you ever decide to purchase one, and you use the coupon code that I posted here, you will get $5 off and I will get a barkbox donated to my local shelter! It's win win! Let me know if you do! thanks!
      ANd I really appreciate you sharing and tweeting! We need all the help we can get right now!
