It was bound to happen. Lucy and Annabelle now have their own subscription to BarkBox. If you have dogs, I’m sure you’ve seen the ads pop up on your Facebook feed. Lucy and Annabelle heard about BarkBox from their dog friends (not really), so I ordered it for them (really). They’ve been extra good schnauzers this year, and Christmas came early.
Now we’re really living high.
Because we’re a high living society.
We’ve reached the point in time when nearly every little thing can be delivered to our doorsteps customized to our specific profiles— organic ingredients with step-by-step recipe cards, the latest beauty offerings, shoes and clothing I can try on in my own cluttered closet, razor blades, wine, gourmet bacon, and more.
Not that I’m complaining.
I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for good packaging and BarkBox does it right. Check out this cute card explaining what’s prey, what was once prey, and what sounds like prey. Nice touch for the human with the checkbook.
I read the card to Lucy and Annabelle but eager to dig in, they didn’t hear a word I said. I imagine they could smell the treats before we unwrapped the goodies.
Seriously. Best twenty bucks I’ve spent in a while. Evidently, they’ve been bored with their old chew toys, and come to think of it, I haven’t bought them anything new in a long time. Twenty dollars gets us a combination of 4-5 toys and treats plus a whole lot of happiness.
Happiness sometimes disguised as ferociousness.
Our first box was New York themed, probably because Bark & Co is based in the Big Apple. Toys included a Statue of Liberty bouncy ball and a box of Chinese takeout filled with squeaky dumplings. Who knew fake Chinese’s food could be so entertaining? Each time I refill the takeout box, Lucy drags it off, Annabelle chases her, and together they dig into it and rediscover the dumplings like it’s a brand new day.
Our second box was Halloween themed with a witch’s broom toy and a “here lies squirrel” tombstone. Ghoulish duck/pumpkin treats were a hit. All the treats have been a hit because, treats.
In addition to the monthly subscription, for those extra special occasions, the BarkShop has all sorts of toys and treats and items for our four-legged friends, including The Dognald. I hope he’s in our November BarkBox (hint hint). I mean, he’s perfect for Election month, don’t you think?
According to the website, The Dognald is one tough “Repuplican”. When chewed on, he grunts. Of course he does.
And never fear, the “Democats” are equally represented/ridiculed. Hillary Kitten’s pantsuit boasts reinforced seams, her squeaker is extra sturdy, and she has a smart phone in her pocket for easy email deleting.

P.S. Kitties feeling left out? Worry not. The KitNipBox may be for you. (Lucy & Annabelle can’t endorse such a thing though, because cats are the enemy. And squirrels.)
