It arrived! Woof! This month the theme of the BarkBox was all about CHEWRASSIC BARK. I kid you not!
All these yummy goodies. Note the paper wrapped around the treats? All keeping with the theme, because they can read. Am I right?
This is our second shipment and the fur babies are loving it.
The Woolly Mammoth is fluffy and squeaks. Airborne Archie is The Pterodactyl. It’s made to make a crinkle sound and also has a squeaker inside.
With four dogs, one who is a puppy, (Levi) we need all the busy toys we can acquire to keep him busy. Momma needs to write!
