Well Hello There…

Posted on

IMG_5534.JPGSo my first post in quite a while, things are quite different now. I travel, I workout, I care about what I’m putting in my body, I’ve changed jobs, and my outlook on life is something totally different.

I recently took a trip to Yellowstone National Park and had some food sensitivity testing done. Both posts I want to share with you later, but I thought I should pop on and check in with you guys. How are things going?

Is there something you would like to see on the blog? I am open to revamping the whole site, so if there is some content you’d like to see, let me know!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you an update and I am hoping to document my food and health challenges as well as my traveling adventures!


BarkBox: November 2014

No idea why this never got published! Here you go! Sorry it’s so late!

Clyde’s BarkBox was pretty cool this month! Clyde got his first bullystick ever and LOVED it! Yay! I’m super excited about the toys and the Turducken treats! So many cool things! Here’s what the box contained:DSC_0077DSC_0079

Petmate Chef Heggies – Stuffed hedgehog created by Petmate just for BarkBox.
Feelgood Treat Company Slow Roasted Rosemary Turducken (Oat + Rice) – The poultry trifecta of treats! Made with turkey, duck, and chicken.
Barkworthies Junior bully Stick – Made with 100% beef bladder! Pups find them long lasting and delicious. No chemicals or preservatives are used, making them a clear winner over other chews like rawhide.
PetSafe Squeak ‘n Treat Booya – This treat dispensing toy from PetSafe helps extend meal time into playtime! Squeaky and durable for heavy chewers, you can cut the prongs inside to adjust the difficulty of treat extraction and extend playtime even longer.
Diggin Your Dog Charki-O’s – Charki-O’s have been known to cause addiction…to more Charki-O’s! These freeze-dried beef trachea treats are topped with liver sprinkles and are paw-licking good.DSC_0080

So far Clyde has loved the bully stick, it was gone in like 10 minutes! And the hedgehog he has been throwing around the livingroom and the Booya treat toy is puzzling him. Check out the pictures from BarkBox day!

BarkBox: October 2014

Clyde loved his October Barkbox! I think he loves every Barkbox, but he really loved the Day of the Dead doll that came in this one. He is still playing with it to this day! Silly little guy! Here is what came in the October box.

October Contents:

Safemade Dia de los Muertos Skull (Clyde’s favorite) – $11 value, this toy has held up to Clyde constantly playing with it. It has extra trim around the sides for durability.
Hare of the Dog Rabbit Jerky Stick – I haven’t given this to Clyde yet. I’m sure he will love it when I do ($3 value).
Wet Noses Pumpkin biscuits – We haven’t tried these yet either. Agility gave him too many treats so they are very sparingly now ($2 value).

American Dog Toys Flash & Glow Ball – This ball constantly gets stuck under the couch, but it is easy to find with its flashing lights! Clyde loves playing with balls (haha, yes I’m 2 sometimes), and this seems to be a good one for him ($9 value).
Snicky Snaks Cinnamon Crunch Bar – Clyde really liked this one. I think he ate the whole bar in like 2 seconds! ($2 value)
Superior Farms Venison Crepe – I gave this one to Clyde on Halloween! He loved it! He loves super crunchy things. Probably why he loves knuckle bones so much! ($8 value)

BarkBox is a subscription service that sends a box of goodies to your dog every month. You can pick boxes depending on the size of your dog. Clyde gets a medium box and it’s $39.95 per month. The other really cool thing about BarkBox is that should Clyde not love an item in his box they will replace it! This is huge! I love that I get to try new things with Clyde and I don’t have to worry about him being disappointed.

I was not compensated by Barkbox in any way to write a review for Barkbox. All opinions are my own.

August Barkbox

Clyde’s August Barkbox contained some great stuff! It felt like it came late this month, but I think that’s just how the month landed on days of the week.

Anyway, this month’s Barkbox contained:
Jax and Bones Nautical Wheel Rope Toy
Feel Good Treat Co Seafood Chowder
Waboba Fetch (A ball that bounces on the surface of the water)
Grandma Bowser’s Cheddar Biscuits
Safemade Nautical Bandana

Clyde seems to really enjoy the rope toy and liked the cheddar biscuits. He isn’t so impressed with the bandana, but lets be fair he isn’t impressed with any clothes. He barely tolerates his collar, but he was a good sport about the bandana photo shoot.
