As you can probably tell, today was a CRAZY day for subscription boxes. I got six in the mail today plus one from UPS. Wow! One of those boxes happened to be the furries April Barkbox. Of course they MADE me open it for them right away, so they could dig right into it. If you don’t already know, Barkbox is a monthly subscription box for dogs. Packages start at $29/month, $23/month for 3-months or $18/month for 6-months. As luck would have it, they also happen to be on Fab.com right now! You can get 3 months for $49 (reg. $69).
Barkbox ships USPS and seemed to come pretty fast this month. I wasn’t expecting it this quickly and all of a sudden it arrived. Is anyone else noticing this about their tracking? No updates for days and then all of a sudden it’s at your house!
The April Barkbox was packed nice and full. And it was very heavy this month. Heavier than normal that’s for sure.
The Information Card
This month’s Barkbox includes items to keep your dog entertaining during all those April showers. Which, as a matter of fact, we are having today. And tomorrow. And the next day. And just like the card says, the dogs end up with their little paws covered in mud. Here’s what was inside.
~safemade safe chew puppy stick($6.99): The furries aren’t big chewers, but I can see them playing running around with this fighting over it! Buddy actually used to be a chewer when he was a puppy (he ONLY like macbook cords), but luckily he grew out of that. The information card suggests throwing this in the dishwasher to clean it after it gets all slobbery, and I gotta tell you, that’s a great idea. I think I am going to do that with all the dog toys this weekend!

~ABO Gear GroomMitt Bath Mitt($6.99): Okay, I am sending Buddy and L out to play in the mud tomorrow (this won’t be hard) just so I can try these out. These clean your dogs when you don’t have the time (or energy) to give your dogs a bath. Giving a 9lb dog (aka Buddy) a bath is much harder than you’d think. Baxter just stand there. Buddy claws at my arms. Fingers crossed these save Buddy and I from daily springtime baths!

~American Dog Toys Fetch & Glow Jr. ($7.99): I don’t know that Baxter and Buddy have never played fetch in the dark, but I bet if we turn out the lights and get these glow balls, WB and L are going to MAKE Baxter and Buddy play! WB has been playing with Buddy lately and it’s too funny to watch them. Buddy knows to be gentle when he takes his toys from WB and then WB goes CRAZY laughing and he crawls off to get it back from Buddy. But back to the balls, I’m not totally sure that WB will let Buddy get this back. He’s obsessed with balls. Carries them in the bar, the bathtub, everywhere. It’s kind odd.

~Etta Says Duck Jerky ($12.89): This duck jerky is all natural and has no fillers, coloring, preservatives, grain, gluten or by-products and the dogs love them already. B and the furries have similar taste in food, because he would love duck jerky as well.

~Etta Says Crunchy Duck Chews ($1): We have gotten these before and the dogs are always fans. By fans I mean that once dog gets it and hoards it while the other dog waits until he’s not paying attention and then steals it. I have finally realized that I don’t need two of everything. They only want one. The one the other dog has .

~Licks Liquid Vitamin (Joint & Heart)($5.33): I have never heard of such a thing. Liquid vitamins for dogs?? But I certainly plan to try them. They are getting older (Buddy is going to be 6 and Baxter will be 7 this year), so we gotta start taking extra good care of them. Because I want Baxter to live until he’s 20 .

All totaled, the April Barkbox had a value of $41.19! That’s a deal if you paid $29/month for the box or $18/month!! I think getting one Barkbox for both dogs to share works out perfect for us. They are little, so they don’t go through things as quickly as bigger dogs would.
