I won a BarkBox and Cody won too!

Hi everyone! It’s Dakota! Back in October, I was reading one of my favorite blogs:

Roo has a super special story about his life, which if you don’t know his story, you can read about it here

Now being the super generous dog that he is, Roo was having a give-away for a BarkBox and/or a MeowBox  as part of Roo’s Birthday/Gotcha celebration and I decided to enter!

What is a BarkBox?

From their website:

When you sign up for BarkBox, every month you will receive a box in the mail with four or more carefully selected products and presents for your dog – anything from bones and treats to shampoos, leashes and innovative new gadgets!

A portion of proceeds from each box will go to help doggies-in-need. To learn more about our causes, read about our giving program.

Here is a photo of Roo and HIS BarkBox

I was BEYOND excited that I won!

Look at all of my stuff!

Do you believe it? One of my favorite things in that box are the blueberry treats by Fruitables Pet Foods! They are the perfect size for all of my treat toys and they are super delicious! Not to mention the great treat toy by Bionic and of course a gift card from our pals at chewy.com !! Everything I love!!

Mom was  super impressed with the Bark Box and said if she ever starts making some money again that maybe she will look into this for me. If not for me, it would make a great gift for some other lucky doggies!

Now, if that wasn’t generous enough, Roo even got presents for my kitty brother Cody, so he wouldn’t feel left out! Look at all of this stuff that Cody got!

Both Cody and I want to thank Roo for his INCREDIBLE KINDNESS AND GENEROSITY! It would have been enough for just ME to win (of course!), but to include Cody as well, was one of the kindest things we have ever experienced.

We are deeply touched Roo,

we THANK YOU  from the top of our ears,

to the tip of our tails,

and to the “moon and back!!”

We love you Roo!

Dakota and Cody
