It’s time for our BarkBox review!

Today when it arrived, even I was curious as to what was inside this month’s BarkBox. The box had a rather odd look to it. It wasn’t it’s ordinary shape and size…


Harley is one of the nosiest dogs I know

My only job in this assignment is to release the tape from the sides. Then as if instructed, I sit back with my camera and watch as the investigation unfolds…


This is the part I find most entertaining

I can bet (and win) Harley will be the “chief investigator.” He’s the first one to “go all the way in”


One day somethings gonna grab his nose!

We (Leo and I) watch while he snoops…


Once he’s in there, he shops around

Leo tried his best to slide along the wall inching closer to the box to see for himself what smelled so good…


Move over Harley!!!!

He just couldn’t seem to squeeze his way through…


It was a treasure chest full of doggie fun…


Let me highlight the items that the Boys will enjoy:

Wagatha’s Tuscan Pizza Biscuits with 100% USDA organic ingredients. Wheat, corn and soy free…


I can use the small can of liquid bandage spray, (compliments of healthybrandsforlife.com) to disinfect and protect cuts and scrapes by VetraCare Pet. I’ll keep it in the car. Leo has a tendency to scrape his paws when we’re out and he’s running around chasing “Wilson.”

Chewy venison ears from Superior Farms, along with Angus tendons from Barkworthies and deer chews from Etta Says will go to some of the Boys furrends. Although these chews are 100% natural, full of protein, clean, rinsed, dried with no chemicals, they just don’t sit right with Harley & Leo. But let me add- we have received and enjoyed many other products from all of these companies.

This month’s toy that gets “4 paws up” X 2 this month is the IQ Ball from Our Pet’s


This little ball will give your dog hours of fun. It’s a treat ball, easy to fill with your dogs favorite treats. You simply unscrew the ball top, remove the middle panel, place food or treats in the ball bottom. Adjust the size of the inner hole, replace the panel, and screw the ball back together…


Harley ruvs toys like these

We’ve had these before, but I really like this one, because it’s so easy to clean, not a lot of pieces to worry about or keep up with. No sharp edges or parts that can pop off. And because I can adjust the size of the inner hole – I can challenge them more should I choose to by making the hole smaller.

Heres’s Harley in action. I will more than likely look for another one, because I would need two in my house. But watch how Leo figures out that all he has to do is follow Harley around and snatch up what he doesn’t see come out of the ball…

Now look who want’s a pizza treat…

    Wow! That BarkBox and some really neat stuff and Libby is hoping she gets the same things in hers:) I love the way Harley gets right in there and takes over to investigate the goodies! We let Libby open hers too, but she has no competition while opening it! Your video is so cute and they are both very calm with the ball and the treats. Libby will be probably be running like a wild dog! Love your blog, always cute and the boys are “priceless”

      Hey Lonnie – Let me know how Libby does with the ball. Harley keeps that thing going all day long! I put dry food in there instead of treats just a different flavor from what they are eating at mealtime. This way they can play all afternoon long. Hope your box comes soon!
      Have a great weekend

    Yay! IT Looks like we have the same BarkBox! The only difference is that you have 2 white fluffs at home instead of 1!
