today as usual the postman banged on the door and bought me a big box!! it was a pawpost box that mum got as a prize on faceybook and she says its all for me!!
pawpost is a subscription box company just for dogs. you can get a one-off box or gt one every month… its up to you🙂
prices start at £17,95pm for 12mth subscription up to £22.95 for 1mth subscription. subscriptions auto-renew so be careful if on the 1mth one! you can also give one as a gift for the same prices
so i let mum open it and it was wonderful!! lots of special things just for me. and it changes each month!!
1. a cotton bag for holding all my things with a funny pic on it.
this is your usual shopper type bag and good quality. it will be used to store my non-food items in or to carry my treats and toys and lead when we go out. it also has the pawpost logo on. it fits all the contents of the box in with plenty of room and isnt too heavy
2. a cotton treat bag with a funny pic with drawstring close
this is meant to hold all my treats. however i am a spoilt puppy so woud not hold all of them as i have a huge box full of treats. mum says my special treats will go in here and its just for me. its a bit big to fit in her pocket but will fit inside her handbag to stop my treats making her bag smelly as she is constanlty picking bits of fish and liver out the bottom! (hehe!)
we would like to know where to get another one but no label on it
3. lillys kitchen rise and shines treats
we love lilys kitchen treats here. they are all natural with no bad bits and good for you.
we havent had the rise and shines before tho so its a nice change. the rise and shines are baked biscuits that can easily be broken up as are pre- scored for you. they contain beef liver with carrots, turmeric, rosehip, nettle, alfalfa, molasses and sunflower seed. mum can understand what every ingredient is so no chemicals or flavorings or any nasty bits that could make you poorly. i will be looking forward to trying one.
4. kong squeakair ball on a rope
we also love kong and we love balls. we have quite a few squeakair balls and they are good. as a labrador we are known for loving our balls and we go through a lot of them through loss or destruction… but i havent managed to destroy one yet. the only way to destroy is to sit and peel the outside of but as a ball is for playing fetch and interaction between you and owner then you shouldnt be left to sit and peel. but its passed the daisy test too. she runs fast and chews on the ball as she runs. but the way squeakair is made hr jaws go down and the ball goes in. she cant gt a solid bite. she lovs these balls as they squeak when she bites them… she has hunting dog in her so probably things its a mouse (shes a bit stupid) we havent had the ball on a rope from kong before tho. mum is slightly worried as it isnt rope but fine plastic strands woven. there is enough space for a strand to get stuck between teeth so may not be suitable for dogs who grab at the rope bit. i panic when things get stuck which makes it worse. if it isnt suiitable for me it will go in my friend bellas xmas stocking as she grabs the ball
5.woofbrew healthy herbal tea for dogs
i have heard of this but never tried it. i do love my tea and am always pinching mums but now she says i can have my own in a special bowl (bowl not inc) we got the woofbrew for skin and coats included but there are a few different types. our pack contained 7teabags which make 1litre of tea each and meant to be used every day. it comes in a nice resealable packet with instructions and info on the back. the ingredients of this one are : burdock, dandelion, flax, nettle ,rooibos and seaweed so again, no bad stuff and is suitable for those fussy dogs with allergies and delicate tummies. we will be trying this after our walk. it can be given in a bowl or cup on its own or put over food
6. billy and margots popcorn
this is a larg bag and contains 100% air-popped popcorn with seaweed seasoning. i have had this before and wasnt keen (yes, you heard… a food a labrador doesnt like) we get it for birthday parties as you really only need to give a few. its suitable for the humans to have a nibble if they really want too!! but this will be going in bella the cockapoos xmas stocking as daisy can only have specific treats. again it is 100% natural so suitable for most dogs. the first ingredient is maize (corn) obviously so may not be suitable for dogs with some allergies. it is in a resalable bag to keep fresh and once the corn is finishd you can empty the bag onto other food to get all the benefits. would make a nice treat for birthdays or xmas
7. hair of the dog conditioning shampoo
i hate baths!! so not my favorite item (would have preferd another toy or treat) but mum likes it and we occasionally have to keep her happy. its not a brand weve heard of and for some items we like to stick to what we know we lik so if seen elsewhere we might not have got. it is made in the uk by oggypets and contains cranberry, rasberry and blackberry. however there are also a few words in the ingredients i dont recongnise. it says it is dermatologically tested so suitable for sensitiv skin and is antibacterial and free from certain nasties. it has a nice smell and comes out a smooth clear gel. it has natural conditioners so you shouldnt need to use a conditioner after. as daisy has regular baths it will be tsted on her – she has sensitive skin and is incontinent so the antibacterial should be good for her
samples of platinum dog food were also included. these were very small packs of chicken, lamb and rice, and iberico and greens.
the only issue is all the ingredients and information is in german so no idea whats in it or anythijng. on the front is a big label with 70% frischfleisch which thanks to google translator means 70% frsh meat which is very good for a dry dog food. it will be used as treats for me as because we dont know what ingredients are it is not suitable for daisy incase has any grains in. aftr another google search i found the english wbsite where you can vew the ingredients. it is an expensive food at nearly £30 for 5kg so will not be getting
iberico (pork) and greens – is all natural with pork, potato, carrots and herbs and plants so would actualy be suitable but people who got this in their box may not have been able to give this as may not have known
