Rip Daisy

Yesterday, my sister died peacefully at home with mum there. She was 3yrs old.

Daisy was born 17/10/2011 and Mum bought Her home when she was 4wks old as she was due pts. I took her as my own puppy and was a good mum to her. Daisy was in chihuahua harness till 5mths and didn’t walk properly till then and slow to develop.
She had lots of health issues- pancreatitis, poor digestive system and struggled with getting nutrients from food, allergies to everything and had injections every month.

Last year she got very ill and lost lots of weight so had lots of treatment to help her but this weekend she just gave up.
We did what we could to make her short life happy. She had friends to play with and could run in the woods and chase rabbits and birds. She was always a puppy – and had a possible brain defect causing her to not learn quickly so often got in bother, she only grew to whippet size and was very fast. She destroyed all my toys but I didn’t mind as she was my puppy.

She is now in a better place now where she can run around without any pain or suffering

The items were shipped in the bark bunnies forage box, full of hay, just like all orders.
The forage box can be used as an extra toy, hunt for treats in the hay or just to make a mess!

The box
The box contained 7items, 4 toys and 3 treats. All high quality.
Items were all a surprise, hand picked by albie, the companies golden retriever, and his humans.
Items were packed well and nothing was damaged at all.

We received in our parcel-
– JW hol-ee roller Rrp £5.99
This is a tough rubber ball that is squishy and safe. I like to run with my balls so this allows me to still breath and pant and won’t hurt my jaw as can open and close my mouth. We had a look at this ball before on the site but was unsure of getting it. Also easy for the humans to carry as can squish in bag

– giggle ball. Rrp £3.85
We have had this before from a different place and is a favourite. It’s a plush pink ball that giggles when thrown around or stood on. It’s for inside use really as doesn’t like getting wet. My last one lasted a long time even with my sister chewing it

– gor pets tug rope. Rrp £2.99
Not one of my favourites out all the items. I play with rope tugs sometimes if another dog playing. The one provided is for large dogs and quite long and heavy. Would suit most larger breeds and seems tough.

-Kong dodo Rrp £7.49
This was a nice surprise item. We love long stuff. Especially the soft toys. The dodo has a soft outer skin with 2 squeak balls inside. It’s soft enough to carry but unlikely to break if I chewed or tugged. It’s not indestructible tho but I’m good with toys. We received the purple dodo. Think this will be my favourite item

Treats
Antos Cerea hedgehog chew. Rrp £1.89
This was first thing out the box. Iv had them before and only get as special treat. Similar texture to dentastick and are chewy. Made from vegetable so good for you.

Natures menu treats – beef and lamb Rrp £1.69 each
We got 2 packs of natures menu treats. These are high quality and 95% meat. Again we only get these as a treat due to price so wouldn’t have bought ourselves. I love the lamb ones so will share the beef.
I have no allergies but I’m sure if you let them know of anything you can’t have them they would make sure any treats are suitable.
