I spent Labour Day weekend at Nash’s parents’ place in Espanola, a town of around 5000 people in Northern Ontario. It was rainy all weekend but I still tried to take some photos of the beautiful scenery and other random things.
This is their fat kitty named Beans.
So cute, so fat.
Fitting perfectly with the them was this shark toy from Harry Barker. The toy had two squeakers but were no match for our little dog.
These Bixbi Daily Essentials Chicken Jerky Treats make the dog go crazy. All of Barkbox’s treat selections have been some of Teddy’s favourite. They tend to be organic and have no filler ingredients such as corn and soy.
A beef pizzle from Superior Farms Pet Provisions will entertain him for hours.
Lastly, these Petsafe dog chews clean teeth and are good for doggy bodies at the same time.

I’ve always been the type of person to keep busy. Even when I was watching a TV, I needed to be reading articles on the internet, drawing, learning how to code, blogging or whatever. I couldn’t justify simply doing the recreational thing without being busy with something I deemed “productive”. In my head I felt like I was wasting my life if I took that extra hour of sleep, nap, caught up on Youtube or even hang out with friends.
Ever since I got a full-time job these priorities changed. I still struggled with the need to “keep productive”, this time with more of a focus on reading a book or writing the blog posts that keep all my sites updated. I now have less time than ever to do any of those things and being able to prioritize has been a challenge.
However, I let myself turn-off the brain when I’m exhausted. An extra hour of sleep, hanging out with friends or letting myself relax and play video games does wonders for the amount of things I can get done the next day (including write this blog post). We live in an age where “being busy” is addictive and seems trendy but it’s important to know when to just kick back once in a while.
Another month, another Barkbox! I think I’m just as excited as Teddy to see what goodies are inside.
These Healthy Dogma Banana Chips ($7.95) look just like the human kind. They are grain and gluten free. Unfortunately, Teddy is strangely allergic to bananas so we will be giving this to another dog friend. I wish there was an option on Barkbox to mention allergies/sensitivities. Bananas are the only food we’ve ever seen him have a problem with.
By far the best item in this Barkbox was this Baboon butt from Silly Bums ($20). It’s hilariously random but Teddy hasn’t stopped playing with it since. It squeaks and crinkles. It’s more durable than it looks at first glance.
