SBS: Our Holiday BarkBox


Here at Season It Already!, we’ve started something called Subscription Box Saturday. This is when I share with you the contents of my lovely subscription boxes and tell you what we think of what’s inside.


I always open our subscription box for the pooches the moment I pick it up off the porch. However, this month’s BarkBox arrived just days before Christmas, so I decided to wrap it and put it under the tree instead.


Benny: “Momma, I know you are wrapping something for me. What is it?”

The dogs waited patiently while everyone opened their gifts.


When it was their turn, Sophie was anxious to get that box opened after the paper was discarded:


Sophie: “Momma… Open it! Open it!”

So I did…


BarkBox – December 2012 contents

Puppy CakeWhat? I’m so excited to make this cake into cute little cupcakes! I just might wait until Sophie’s birthday in January and have a little puppy party. {Okay, so she’ll be 8, so she isn’t exactly a puppy anymore.} I’m also happy to see human-grade ingredients: rice flour, evaporated cane juice, beet powder, baking powder and salt. Just add 1 egg, 3/4 cup water and 3 Tbsp vegetable oil. The frosting is made from unflavored yogurt. Do I dare take a taste myself?!

Simply Fido Organic Pet Toy – Forget about all of those cheap toys made with harsh fibers and who-knows-what chemicals in their dyes. This reindeer squeak toy is certified non-toxic with organic cotton fabric, made with a low eco impact dye process and filled with recycled fiber and cotton. Sophie loves toys that she can squeak. So it’s nice to find one that I know is safe and environmentally friendly. The fact that it was a reindeer toy this month – a nice touch!

Bocce’s Bakery Treats – Baked in NYC, these are made with chicken, pumpkin, cranberries and cinnamon. They smell so good {I find it’s rare I say that about dog treats!} and our dogs are gobbling them up.

Fresh Dog Oatmeal Shampoo – We have not tried this out yet, but I love the idea of aromatherapy for dogs. Sure, roll your eyes here, if you wish. But when you have a dog with a bit of anxiety like I do, these things matter.


We Our dogs absolutely adore our their BarkBox. I love the fact that they give 10% of proceeds to shelter or animal rescue. Want to give it a try?

Well, to celebrate my 200th blog post

I read a statistic that 63% of owners get their dogs gifts for the holidays.

Do you buy/wrap gifts for your pet(s)?

If so, what did they get this year?

  1. I wouldn’t feel right not buying my doggies gifts…lol! They got a game where you put treats under the “bone” shaped pieces and they have to move the pieces around to get the treat. It makes them think. I have German Shepherds and they love to figure things out. They each got a huge cow bone and they each got a new kong toy too 🙂 Happy New Year Carrie!!
