The Abominable Snowman!

Standard

Happy Sophie & Shamrock Saturday!

Remember back when I said I canceled all of my subscription boxes? Yes, that’s right, my subscription boxes. The one box that I didn’t cancel, though, belonged to them.

Sophie & Shamrock

How could I say, “no” to those a-dog-able faces? They get so excited every time a BarkBox arrives… Maybe next month, I’ll have to take a video. {Okay, so I tried that once and they ended up fighting. Ooops.}

January’s BarkBox theme was..

“Ice Age!”

Here’s the loot from the Small Dog Box:

Clockwise from Top Left:

  • Delca Corp Adorable Snowman {BarkBox Exclusive} Wait what? The tag says Abominable Snowman, but the insert card calls it the Adorable Snowman. I think “abominable” is more appropriate!
  • Complete Natural Nutrition Off-Leash Twigs – Grain-free chew made with turkey and pumpkin
  • BarkMade Wooly Mammoth – {BarkBox Exclusive}
  • Heartland Premium Rib – I’m a little nervous to give this USDA approved rib chew to my dogs. Must supervise. Or wait until one is at the vet so they aren’t fighting over it.
  • Aussie Naturals Salmon Skin Training Treat Nibbles – Rob is going to use these to teach one of the pooches a new trick? What would you like to see Sophie or Shamrock do?

Confession:

We name all of our dogs’ toys.

Maybe that should be the trick we teach them – to retrieve a toy by name. Shamrock loves new toys and usually becomes obsessed with them right after he gets them. However, he will continuously go back to this one. Sometimes they are obvious names like Blue Kitty or Monkey Stick

Other times, we have to be creative when we have two of something. For example, somehow, over the past couple of years, we’ve received two different whales. The first one became the Whale of Fortune! and the second one became Beluga.

And still other times, we like to be all Australian-like and just make the name cute by adding an “ie,” like with Chef Hedgie{A hedgehog wearing a chef’s hat.}

Well, it’s probably obvious that, from this box, we called the Wooly Mammoth toy, WoolySometimes we even call him Wooly Bully. But what to call the Abominable Snowman? Since abominable is a word that never rolls off my tongue, I finally came up with it – AbbieThat may not sound creative name to you, but it truly does have a dual meaning.

Because this abominable snowman has abs!
