Awwwwww, I’m just joking about the title but my, oh my, did November get away from me! November was filled with conferences, trainings, meetings and, oh yeah, Thanksgiving. In the midst of all that, a BarkBox came and was enjoyed and I apologize, dear readers, for the delay in telling you about it! So, let’s get into what was in November (before December shows up on my doorstep).
The BarkBox came with a reminder card that the BarkShop is open. They actually have cute stuff, and I have a $10 credit, so I should probably get a stocking stuffer or something from there. Oh! I just noticed the postcard offers me $10 off my first purchase too! I wonder if I can stack those. I will definitely check that site out after I write this. The theme this month is, duh, Thanksgiving.
First look at the box.
All the fixin’s!
So this box included Petsafe Squeak ‘ Treat Booya, $13. This is a great heavy chewer toy (thanks, BarkBox) and you can also put treats in it. These are the best kinds of toys, and the reason I keep subscribing. (Although, I found it here for $12). I actually said to my husband as we unpacked this box, “this is a good box” and I am sticking to my first impression. http://www.dogtuff.com/busy-buddy-squeak-n-treat-booya-pet-safe-large.html?gclid=Cj0KEQiAhvujBRDUpomG5cq_mI0BEiQA7TYq-h_o7n2rMs2u12jbF6e0HL07e5JT_kR2Zu3qc0LsZB0aAkfm8P8HAQ
Wagatha’s Kitchen Sink are treats that Albie felt “OK” about. He expresses this emotion by abandoning a treat but then later going back to find it and eat it. Wagatha got 3/5 tail wags. They are all-organic, GMO-free treats filled with a ton of really good stuff (thus, the kitchen sink)! BarkBox prices these at $5 and I could only find a bigger box for $12 so we will let BB’s price stand. http://www.amazon.com/Wagathas-Kitchen-Sink-Organic-Biscuits/dp/B00AN6A8ZS
Feel Good Treat Company Slow Roasted Rosemary Turducken (Oat & Rice). Albie was not leaving these, he was LOVING these! These were a hit, guaranteed to prevent the dogs from begging for your turkey. I don’t know about that, but he does really like them. BarkBox says this is a $6 item but Albie says no amount is too high! (and I cannot find them online)
Diggin Your Dog Charki-O’s was also in the box and Albie has never met a bone he didn’t like. This is actually more than a bone, as it is freeze-dried beef trachea topped with liver sprinkles. BarkBox prices this at $4, and I may just reorder this with my BarkMoney (if that’s possible) because it was a huge hit. We actually did give this to Al on Thanksgiving and he was delighted. I can’t find the exact one, but that price seems legit and actually very reasonable. http://canvaspet.com/shop/diggin-dog-charki-o-hip-joint-8-9-dog-chew-single/
Finally, the box had Safemade Apawthecary Cleaning Wipes, $4. These are cute and perfect to throw into my bag when we go on a hike. I love wipes. I keep baby wipes in my car and my “baby” is 12. They’re for me. Baby wipes get coffee stains out of shirts, not that I’m always spilling Americanos on myself (I am). I couldn’t find these online either!
Not my best review, I apologize but I have recently had the flu and was feeling so guilty for stalling on posting this! If you ever have a blog topic (dog related) you would be interested in my writing about, please comment below! As always, we loved the BarkBox and feel that it is well worth the cost (it added up to $32, we paid $18). Pop around on Groupon and other such sites if you ever decide to subscribe because you can often find a coupon code. Do you get BarkBox? What do you get in yours?
I’m really looking forward to December’s box because I love a well-curated holiday box and as we all know, Santa is coming to town!
