This month’s BarkBox was a home run. It was nautical themed, which – really, let’s be honest here – is all I need to be sold on it.
The only downside is that I wish we had received this earlier in the summer, since Penny isn’t going to get as much use out of one of the water toys they included as she could have if we’d received it sooner.
First of all, it came with a “ruv note”. Ruv note. I’m dying of cuteness.
This month’s box included:
Not gonna lie – we haven’t had a chance to thoroughly test it all out yet, but overall she seems pleased. BUT… guess which one is her favorite? She loves the floating lobster toy. Loves. She makes it her mission to save him when we chuck him into the lake. She swims twice her normal speed to get to him. You see the panic in her eyes.
Oh, right – yes, the lobster is a he. His name is Leonard. Get it? Leonard and Penny? Get it? Shut up, it’s adorable.
Another new toy we recently picked up is also nautical-themed, so apparently BarkBox was very in tune with Penny’s current toy needs. We got her the Harry Barker Cotton Rope Tug and Toss Dog Toy from the Planet Dog company store in Portland, Maine.
I highly recommend the toy as well as the store. Because… well, just look at this. It’s a dog’s dream come true.
|If you look closely, you can see her Larry the Lobster toy in the middle of the picture (not to be confused with Leonard the Lobster).|
|Colorful, bright, and full of super exciting stuff for the pups.|
|An entire wall of harnesses, leashes, collars – you name it!|
|Are you seeing this? A gourmet treat corner.|
They also have a store mascot who, at the time, was dressed like a shark for Shark Week. And it was adorable. How many times have I said adorable in this post? Probably too many.
