Episode 28: October 2013 BarkBox

Hihi. I'm back with another BarkBox post! :) This month's box was super exciting as it was HALLOWEEN THEMED! There's also a coupon on Wrapp, which is an app that can be found in Google Play or the Apple App Store, which gives you $19 off your box & I believe it comes with a box of Halloween treats.

So lets begin! Penny was very excited when I opened the box. The first thing that she tried to grab wasn't the treats though - it was the doll, surprisingly.

Pet Qwerks - Chevron Bear toy

This doll was super cute! I wanted it for myself haha. It has 2 squeakers, one at the head and one on the belly. Penny loves dolls with the squeakers for some reason. Maybe because she can use them to catch our attention... But like I said, this was the first thing she went for. I was trying to take this picture and she kept trying to steal it. Eventually she got really impatient and started barking at me. haha. Looks like I need to be more efficient at picture taking so she doesn't have to wait so long!

Superior Farms - Lamb Ears

I was hesitant about this one, i'll be honest. Penny was never a fan of these dried chews. Her patience is very low so normally, she would just chew on it for a few minutes and it would sit there forever... alone. But this one surprised me. I gave it to her, thinking she would ignore it after a while. But 5 minutes passed, then 10 minutes, then 20... and she was still at it. I went to look for it an hour later and it was gone! This must've been the tastiest chew she's ever had for her to actually eat it. 

Your Dog's Diner - Mutt Meatball Mix

This was a very interesting product for me, but not really my cup of tea. It requires quite a lot of effort just to make some meatball treats. It's definitely something new that I can try, but knowing my dog, she doesn't like very herby products. (She's having a hard time finishing the pizza biscuits from last box) I'll have to find a day to put in the effort to make this! Dry treats are definitely better as they last longer and don't require any cooking. :)

Baker's Best - Goat Liver chips

These were a hit with Penny. They're basically just chips. Very crispy chips! It seems like there's a layer of white powdery stuff over them. I'm not sure what that is. But hey, at least Penny approves. That's all that matters, right?

Fruitables - Halloween Share Packs

And.... lastly, we have the Halloween Share Pack! These were just adorable! There's 8 packs, 4 blueberry & pumpkin and 4 apple & pumpkin. Penny really liked them on the first day, probably because it was new stuff... now she doesn't really eat them unless it's the last treat (it still beats the pizza biscuits though LOL) They smell exactly like you would imagine to, but with hints of cinnamon. 

Overall verdict? This was definitely a good box. :) I'm more than just satisfied with this one and I'll bet Penny feels the same way. After seeing this one, I can't wait to see what the Christmas one will turn out to be like!

Episode 27: September 2013 Barkbox

My (actually Penny's) very first BarkBox Subscription Box :)

This post is long overdue, but I haven't had time to put it up till now. So without further ado, let me tell you about my first BarkBox experience. They have subscriptions for 3 types of dogs: small/toy size, medium size and large size dogs. I have a Shih-tzu that's about 14lbs so she definitely falls into the small/toy dogs category. I purchased a 6 month subscription which was $114, but I used a $12 off your purchase coupon from Wrapp, so I paid $112 for 6 months. 

I was super excited to receive my first Barkbox. There are different items every month, so its always going to be a surprise. I was looking at the last 2 months before I decided to purchase. I must say, I was a little disappointed with the items this time. I was hoping for treats that were made out of meats, as those are Penny's favorites. So let me review each item that I got for you:
