Degen's May 2012 Barkbox!

Hi guys! I have a non nail polish post for you guys today, I posted about Barbox last month and got a great response so I thought I'd post what Degen got in his May box. If you haven't heard of Barbox I go over what it is and how you can get it for your dog in my post from last month which you can read here:

May's Barkbox includes a toy, some treats, a very practical doggy gadget and some doggy pampering products. As soon as the mail man brought the box I knew it would be a good one because Degen wouldn't leave me alone...I think he could smell the treats inside of it haha! I had to go outside to take the photos of this months box so that he wasn't trying to take them away while I was taking a photo!

Here is how the box look when it arrived. Everything is packed really nicely with blue crinkle paper and a card that lists everything in the box.

First in Degen's Barkbox was a toy called The Sqwuggie from a company called Katie's Bumpers, it's an awesome interactive toy made from fire hose material. They are great for tug, fetch or any water excursion. I wasn't sure about this until I realized it squeaks, Degen usually only likes toys that squeak. I think Degen is going to have a great time with this! The Sqwuggie is available from 

Next up are peanut butter flavored biscuits from Sloppy Kisses of Saratoga Springs. What a cute name for a dog bakery! Degen loves these, and they smell so peanut butter-y and yummy! You can buy these from Sloppy Kisses website at

Next up is the doggy pampering items! First thing I noticed about these was the cuuuuuuuuute dog picture on the labels, Boston Terriers are my second favorite breed (next to Dachshunds, of course). These 2 items come from Warren London at (FYI, their website carries dog nail polish...I'll be buying some lol). The black tub is hydrating butter, you rub it into your dog's coat for a moisturizing's like leave in conditioner for dogs! It smells awesome, I can't put my finger on the exact scent but it's fruity smelling! The little blue square next to the black tub is a fizzing paw tablet, you put it in a tub of water and soak your dogs paws in it. I gotta say, I love that something like that even exists. I'm sure Degen will like it!

Next is a Gulpy, this is actually something I already owned and love. It's a handy portable water dispenser for your dog. There is a water bottle you can unscrew and fill with water. Then you screw it back in and it folds into a tray...whenever you are out with your dog you can unfold it and squeeze some water into the tray for your dog to drink. I really like bringing this on walks and out when we take Degen somewhere. This is from, I'm pretty sure the other one of these I own I got from a large chain pet supply store like PetsMart or Petco.

Last, but Degen's favorite...a spiral bully stick. This didn't last long with Degen, I think Barkbox has made him a bully stick-aholic. He took it and ran away to eat it then growled if you even came near him while he was eating it haha! Degen likes these because they taste yummy but I like them because they are good for his teeth. I'm glad that Barbox included one in this months box (there was one in the April box also!). This is from but you can get them anywhere dog stuff is sold...I've even seen them at Target (they are a bit pricey though which is why I like getting them in the Barkbox!)

Overall, Degen approves of this do I! If you want to get a Barkbox for your dog make sure you sign up by June 10th to get the June Box. Barkbox can be purchased on, it ranges from $17-$25 per month depending on what subscription you buy.

To get $5 off your order you can use the code JEKAR037. This is a referral code but once you sign up you can email them get your own too :D

    Awww, I wish they ha done for cats. I have two rambunctious two-year old boys who would love something like this!

    Love it!  Just ordered mine!

  9. is run out of my town, they donate stuff to local shelters a lot. They are an absolutely WONDERFUL company and I wish more people shopped there for their bullysticks and chews instead of petco. HUGE savings!

  10. Awesome box! Kind of sad I didn't sign up for in time for May's box, I could have really used that Gulby. But I can't wait for my (or shall I say my Husky Ruckus') box in June!

  11. You should probably train your dog not to growl when you approach his food - Just because it's little it doesn't mean it's not food aggression! You wouldn't think it was cute if a Rottie did it, and little dogs need good training too. Sounds like you're a good dog mom with all the treats and the attention you lavish onto the dog, but training out aggression leads to a better quality of life too :)

  12. How awesome and adorable!! That Gulpy is such a great concept, I definitely could have used that on several occasions - it was quite a mess trying to give my dogs water out of a regular bottle of water in the car, haha!

  13. Degen is trained just fine, thank you for your concern.

  14. I love these posts. I enjoy these non-beauty related posts, makes ya'll more well known bloggers a little more "real" to us regular folk! And I just ordered mine. I couldn't resist. I have two doggies, but only one box as ordered. I'll likely have to go back and order another! =)
