A very clausterphobic Christmas Tree
I’ve got some crazy catching up to do on blog posts but thank goodness for the holidays! Since it’s Christmas I thought I’d share some photos of my day with you.
Teddy waits for his turn to open presents:
However, he’s actually afraid of the bag:
And a few random shots of the fresh turkey we cooked:
Hope you had a lovely day and rest of the holidays!
It’s Barkbox time again! This might be our last for a little while (mostly because Teddy still needs to eat all his snacks from Woofstock).
This month’s theme was “Surf’s Up”.
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.
There was even a pina colada smoothie! Unfortunately Teddy is allergic to banana so we’ll be giving it to a doggy friend.
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.

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.
The other snack in the box was the Primal Freeze-dried Beef Liver treats ($5). Teddy is absolutely in love with these.
One of the best part of Barkbox is there careful consideration of quality toys. This frog from Pet Qwerks is so adorable!
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.

For Teddy’s June birthday, I subscribed him to Barkbox, an online subscription service for dogs that sends goodies and toys every month. There are a few other competitors out there, but Barkbox’s marketing and quality of goodies impresses me above all others.
How it works is you pick your dog’s size (small, medium, large) subscription plan and it is shipped on the 15th of every month. I am Canadian so I assumed it would take a couple weeks to get here and that’s why I ordered it way before his actual birthday. However, I was surprised that it arrived on the 20th, so their shipping times are impressive. It arrived in a branded box with cute wrapping paper.
A card spoke of the month’s warm weather theme and fresh ingredients.
Along those themes were these fruity smelling strawberry biscuits from Max and Ruffy that were wheat and GMO free. ($5.25 retail)
Teddy LOVED this corduroy cat from Loopies Toys. It’s durable but probably won’t stand a chance when Teddy decides he wants to unstuff it’s insides. ($25 retail)
These grain free chicken jerk chews smell as good as the jerky we crave the convenient store. ($12.99 retail)
Lastly this vanilla smelling ball from Mega Last seemed a bit big at first but the dog was soon throwing it around all over the place. I’d be careful with it indoors though!
