My Birthday Surprise For Charlie

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BarkBox for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey y'all! I've got something fun today, and it just happens to be about my little sidekick. If you've been around this space of mine, you've surely seen my dog, Charlie. I'm totally biased, but he is the CUTEST DOG EVER! He's a Morkie--half Maltese, half Yorkie. And he's a rescue. He was actually rescued on my birthday a few years ago. So his birthday is estimated to be somewhere in April. He just turned 8! For a special birthday treat, I decided to get him BarkBox. Y'all--this was the BEST idea!! He's so sweet and loving, plus he the most chill dog. He deserves the best, and I was so excited to give him this.

What is Barkbox? Barkbox is a monthly subscription box for all dogs! Each box comes with treats and toys, just for your pup! Yes, even though he is 8, I will always call him a pup. But back to Barkbox--have you heard of this before? If not, let me introduce you!

Here's Charlie checking out his box! Y'all--he gets SO excited whenever I come home with something for him. Because I'm a Crazy Dog Lady, I took him to the park for this, as a special birthday surprise! I happen to live by Piedmont Park, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity. Luckily, I took pics of everything inside before I let him have it--that's the Crazy Blogger Lady in me. Fellow bloggers, I know ya'll feel me. Gotta get those pics! Ok, enough chatter--here's what's inside:

Barkbox has different themes--this one is travel-themed. The Passport explains what comes in the box. I thought this was SO cute and such a great idea! 

Charlie got two toys--Squeakin on a Jet Plane  and the Toothpaste Rope Toy. Those totally go along with the travel theme.
Treats-wise, he got a pork roll chew, trail mix bone-shaped treats, and fish treats. What's cool is that Barkbox has special accommodations for allergies, heavy chewers, etc. It's for dogs of all sizes! Just reach out to the customer service team for that--they're great! I love that I can personalize this for him
I loved this too--the treats are made in the US and Canada and are all natural! You get two treats and one chew per box. 

Here he is checking out the toys--it was so much fun to let him play in the park, meet some new pups, and get attention from everyone--and then pull out the Barkbox from my bag! I had already opened it, so when I placed it on the ground, he immediately went crazy for it, sniffing to see what was inside. It was too cute. He likes to run off when he gets a new toy, so I'm glad I was able to snag this pic.
I opened one of the treats and gave him some to make him sit for pics, but I was too slow so this is an after shot, haha. I think you can tell he enjoyed it.

Loved this birthday surprise! He brings such joy to me that I loved doing this for him! If you're interested, plans start at $29 per month. BarkBox is billed monthly, and decreases in price if you commit to 6 or 12 month plan. For a 6 month commitment, it's $25 billed monthly and 12 months is $21. You can also get an extra toy club option for an additional $9/month. There's also BarkShop.com--they sell not only the goodies you get in your box but other items from the collection as well!, if you're interested. Charlie loved his BarkBox!

  25. He is such a cute and seeet pup! The last pic is my favorite. I've thought about doing this for Windsor but he is so destructive that I know he would tear up the toys so quick so I don't know that it'd be worth the money for him. Loved this post and these pics. Crazy dog moms unite!
