January 2013 BarkBox Review and a **Giveaway**

Prior to leaving on our road trip this morning, mail was delivered.  My BarkBox came!  I had to hold myself back from opening it, as Faolan and I were walking out the door when it was delivered.  We returned safely from our adventure this evening, and of course I immediately tore right in.
 
 
The Goods
 





 
Jax and Bones Octopus Toy.  Approximate retail value of $12.10.  This is a very cute toy, and appears quite durable.  I might give this one to them.  The company that makes these donates a portion of their earning to a group called Rescue Train, dedicated to saving animal lives.


Barkworthies Bully Stick.  Guesstimate on retail value of $5.00, based on the cost of ordering one via the BarkBox iPhone app.  This is approximately 14" long.  Bully sticks are ALWAYS a huge hit in this house.  I am quite pleased with this.

Superior Farms Lamb Lung Treats.  Approximate retail value of $7.99.  While the trio hasn't tried these, I am sure they will be a huge hit.  I received some dehydrated llama lung treats as part of my DFC Secret Santa Gift, and they were very well received.  Neeko and Bruce have had Merrick's Lamb Lung treats in the past, and quite enjoyed them.

Yumzies Peanut Butter Treats.  Approximate retail value of $6.99.  These are made in the US (good), grain-free (good), but contain brewer's yeast (bad).  Truthfully, its only bad for Bruce.  It only takes a minute amount for his ear to become inflamed, so he will not be receiving any of these.  I have offered a couple to Neeko and Faolan, and they were quickly devoured.  Of course, Faolan had to sniff and make funny faces at the initial treat prior to eating and consuming it.  I need to get a photo of him doing that.
 
All in all, I was impressed with the BarkBox.  Not quite as much as the Spoiled Rotten Dog Box, but I am going to continue this subscription for at least one more month.
 
Now for the giveaway!  I have reviewed three different dog subscription boxes in the last couple weeks.  I am going to give a one month gift subscription to one of these boxes, winner's choice.  To enter, comment on this post with your choice of box, dog size, and how you found my blog.  There must be at least 15 entries for this giveaway to take place, and winner will be randomly selected.  Entries must be submitted by Sunday, January 27, at 5 PM, eastern time.
