THE PETBOX IS COMING | MONDAY MISCHIEF

Harley is  in love with the UPS man. When he hears the truck, he runs to the window and I can almost hear him bark out – “the PetBox is coming

I've got paw prints on my windowsill...

I’ve got paw prints on my windowsill…

On the day his August PetBox arrived, I was in the middle of some serious housework. I grabbed the box on my way up the stairs, tossed it on the bed in one of the guest rooms and went back to my romantic dance routine with my vacuum cleaner.

As I bent, twisted and stretched my old body to get that hose into those “hard to reach places” – a doodlerific thought ran through my mind…

 Harley can get on that bed 

I stood up so fast my head started spinning (because I stood up so fast). With the vacuum cleaner still on – hose sliding across the floor like a python I raced to the room just in the nick of time…

GOTCHA

GOTCHA

As only Harley could, he looked up at me as if he wanted to say…

READY

He melts my heart and he makes me crazy with his many gestures and expressions, HOWEVER – I must maintain my fantasy of “I’m in charge.” So I lectured him on misbehaving, and I separated him from his box while I finished my date with the python in the other room…

If he jumps up there we're headed to Hollywood!

Before you sigh and feel sorry for him, trust me when I tell you – he wasn’t waiting that long. I returned with a pair of scissors and my camera and we opened his August PetBox…

Once again, it was a “winner winner – pizza dinner” surprise with BE PAWSITIVE OVEN BAKED DOG BISCUITS

These organic dog treats are not only delicious, when you buy – the company gives back to help dogs in shelter and rescues. They use all natural ingredients, they’re wheat free, and USDA certified organic. Harley certainly enjoyed them.

ALCOTT ADVENTURES makes a really wide and durable “adventure bowl.” I don’t know about you, but we can never have too many bowls…

This is definitely going in the Doodle Mobile because it has a 64oz storage capacity, and a 24 hour leak-proof lining. With the Autumn season right around the corner, we’ll soon start attending some College football games, and this will be pawfect to have handy…

Can you spell D-E-E-P....

Can you spell D-E-E-P….

Of course PetBox never forgets about me – month after month I can rest assured they’ve tucked something in that little blue box to make me smile. Can anyone else relate when they come across some new and improved poop bags?…

Stop laughing, I know I need other hobbies....

Don’t laugh – I’m just keeping it real here. CLEAN PAWS DOODIE BAGS are LEMON SCENTED – this is HUGE in my life. #justbeinghonest

Another gem created for neat freaks like me, is a hand made DRY dog shampoo by FOR DIRTY DOGS. I can’t wait for Harley to get a little “musty” so I can try this one out. It’s supposed to deodorize and remove excess dirt and oils. I will definitely let you know how it works as soon as I can make him a “dirty dog”#punintended

Of course there is always going to be a “fav” of Harley’s – so without any further ado –

He fell in love with these Twizzies from EMERALD PET. They are hard as can be but breakable for me, and I only give him a little piece which he gnaws on and carries around. He loves it…

Thanks for reading – make this a Monday you won’t forget (call it practice for Tuesday!)

In full disclosure: I was given a PetBox for Harley to enjoy. Should you choose to order a PetBox from this website, I will receive a commission. However, all opinions are my own, swayed only by Harley’s lip smacking and tail wagging approval.

I am joining the Monday Mischief blog hop brought to you by Alfie’s BlogSnoopy’s Dog BlogMy Brown Newfies.

    Bailie would have had that box before you as she is on top of stuff like that. My packages are always on top of the refrig to stay safe. Glad you enjoy your box so much!

      Do you need to talk to your UPS driver too? Tell Shiner to hang in there, hopefully it will be there in the morning! Happy thoughts 🙂

    This is great!! Dash whines when I put something up out of his reach. Absolutely whines! And will just stare at where I put it until I give in and give it to him. These Doodles — so hilarious!!

      Dash and Lilly, why and how did all you Doodles ever get so human like! Harley can make the most child like expressions sometimes, it’s so funny 🙂

      Believe me – if I hadn’t have come into the room when I did – it would have been a disaster, trust me 🙂

    Great review! We got the same Adventure Bowl in our PetBox, but got yummy-smelling wipes instead of the poop bags. Riley also received some beef jerky treats and…had a little Monday Mischief of his own! 😉

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it Chelsea. We got some great smelling wipes last month. I loved the smell… What kind of mischief could cute Riley get into? Do tell…

    Looks like lots of fun stuff in there! And who can blame a pup for a little mischief and jumping up on the bed getting going on opening the box!

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 20, 2014

      Jackie, I was just so happy I remembered the box was on the bed – and right in the nick of time too! There is no telling what he may have gotten into if left alone…

    Look at all that great stuff you got in that great box!

      He was only interested in the chew stick and he played with a rope toy that he hid and I haven’t been able to find it yet!

  • Tenacious Little Terrier

    You can tell what was his favorite from the box!

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 20, 2014

      Instantly! That’s the only thing he wanted!

    Too funny how sometimes those realizations hit you…wait, where’s Jack…hmm I left something on the counter!

      When you have a pet – you’ve got to stay on your toes that’s fur sure!

    I hadn’t heard of goldendoodles before you visited my blog. They are soooo gorgeous! And I bet they’re wonderful friends. I’m so excited to see if I can’t out more about them, maybe find them in Australia. Wish me luck 🙂 And thanks so much. 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 28, 2014

      Love Happy Notes, I’ve heard of the “Aussiedoodle” so I’m hoping you could find a Goldendoodle in Australia too! They are incredible dogs, and I love having them in my life. In the meantime please feel free to come back and visit us as often as you like. Harley would love to have you as a furrend 🙂

      Your father feels differently. Each and every time he walks by, he mumbles something about making Harley repaint the window sill BOL 🙂
