SHOCKED!  I tell you, I was in shock. My lil’ Leo turned four years old on Tuesday…


This is so hard for me to accept. For years (3.5 to be exact) I’ve spent countless hours on street corners explaining to strangers that Leo, not Harley “was the baby.” Now that he’s four, am I not allowed to say that anymore (sniff, sob, sniffle, sniffle)?

Suppressing my silly feelings, I was determined to make this a super special fun day, and a box from a Pug named Bugsy was the pawfect surprise. We started off with a morning romp in the cool wet damp grass, and he was loving every minute of it!

Feeling like a super star he even received a few celebratory phone calls from well wishers before breakfast…

"Thank you very much for calling..."

“Thank you very much for calling…”

And by mid morning he was ready to open his very first BUGSY’S BOX.

What is that you ask?

It’s a monthly box of goodies (5 to 7 high quality, hand-picked items such as dog treats (all made in the USA), toys, care items and much more) that arrive in the mail, right to your door, on the 15th of every month…

How do you get started?

  • Choose your dog’s size so they can cater a special box just for him/her
  • Choose your plan (monthly, 3 months, or 6 months)
  • Wait for your delivery (shipped FREE in the United States and Canada)

That’s it!

Loads of good stuff came out of that box.


Wylie’s Natural Chicken Jerky 3.5 oz $7.00 –  Made with just 1 ingredient CHICKEN! USA-sourced chicken bought from local markets. No preservatives, no additives, and no fillers. Leo inhaled them!

Barkster’s Treats 5 oz $8.99  – Holistic, great tasting, guilt free (only 12 calories each) and produced entirely in the USA. These sweet potato & liver treats were Harley’s favorite. He would do ANYTHING I asked when he saw me pull out that bag!

Tall Tails Dog Pocket Towel $9.99- Now this was Momma’s favorite…fur-sure! Designed with convenient hand pockets, super soft, and highly absorbent microfiber fabric for quick drying. You slip your hands into the two pockets while the towel is wrapped around your dog and rub dry. Machine washable and dryable. LOVE IT!!!!

Incredibubbles Toy – So much fun!! Long lasting bubbles that dry in the air, and land on the ground… intact.



They both seemed curious, and entertained by it, and I couldn’t stop cracking up…

It’s Purely Natural Jerky Bars 4 oz $7.99- These Beef Jerky bars seem to be “purely” doodle*licious! All natural ingredients with names you know! No additives, by-products or artificial preservatives. Glycerin, gluten, soy, and wheat free.

All in all I believe Bugsy’s Box was a hit, and of course the Boys did have their top three…


So if  you’re not able to run around to local pet stores looking for new and exciting treats and toys OR if you’d just like to be surprised along with your pup once a month with a box of goodies to try and enjoy – then Bugsy’s Box is right for you!

As for the birthday Doodle? He passed out right after dinner in the middle of yet another game of “chase the bubbles” – and the “younger” Doodle is still down…

Thank goodness birthdays only come once a year...

I was not compensated for this review. I was sent a Bugsy’s Box for The Boys to try. All opinions are my own, swayed only by Harley & Leo’s lip smacking and tail wagging approval !

Thanks for reading – I’ll keep on writing…

    Passed out cold on his birthday…that means he had a blast! Mom calls all three of us babies from time to time, so you can still call him that.

      You’ve got to try them Slim, they are a hoot. AND, I just found out you can order “bacon flavored” bubbles – now that’s got your name written all over it!
