What can I say? I love the chews...and as you expect, those are the first ones I pulled out of the box. Then I went mad for the zucchini. I guess the only reason a canine like myself would care about veggies is if it was to squeak. I am very impressed with the quality of the toy in this box. The fact that it's made safe for children says a lot about the company and how much they value us furry creatures!

    It's easy to tell they're his favorite as he will beg for carrots from you and devour any offered to him.

  18. Ohhh, we'd love to try BarkBox! Bentley LOVES bananas & carrots! Thanks for hosting Thoughtless Thursday!

  19. Boy that looks like a lot of great stuff lucky you! Love Dolly

  20. Kody's favorite veggie is carrots. I think he likes them because they are sweet. When he sees me eating carrots he always asks for some :)

  21. Why do I love veggie chew toys for dogs so much? There's just this cuteness and ridiculousness factor too them that draws me to them! XD Nailah's fav veggies are carrots cause she can crunch them up!

  22. He is not a big fan of veggie, but I use to have a dog who absolutely loved peas.

  23. Huffle is VERY picky, he once accepted a bite of banana but he spits out apple, pear, and carrots. We haven't figured out what's acceptable yet :)

  24. Oh wow a Bark Box! I've seen a lot of people with Bark Boxes lately.
    We've linked up this time, we did a rescue story about a Baby Flying Squirrel :)

  25. Hello Ruckus! I loved your comment on my post!
    1) Happy National Love Your Pet Day
    2) Carrots are my favorite veggie!
    3) That looks like a wonderful box
    4) My thoughts on mini goldendoodle-if have never met a mini goldendoodle, but I bet they have the same attributes (good temperment, easy going, etc.) as the standards do they are just smaller. Are you thinking about getting one?

  26. So far my boys haven't shown much interest in raw veggies, but they love canned pumpkin.

  27. my 3 girls love lots of veggies, baby carrots and no salt string beans

  28. i think my dogs favorite vegetables are sweet potatoes, carrots and green beans

  29. Hi Y'all!

    Can't seem to find your Sepia post, but I love this post!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  30. I've always wanted to try a subscription box, but am not entire sure they are worth it. It looks like it here, with the treats, but... Let's see if we can win a contest to see what they are like, then go from there, shall we? Maya and Pierson like carrots best. I think carrots have more flavor than broccoli and cauliflower.

  31. My dogs love smooshed peas mixed in with their dog food. :)

  32. My dogs like green beans, I have one that will eat them out of the can.

  33. My dogs love green beans, I have one that will eat them out of the can!

  34. Both my dogs love green beans!

  35. My dog doesn't really like any vegetables, but she loves fruit!

  36. He will eat just about any of them because he will eat anything! Thanks for the giveaway!

  37. Hey Ruckus, for your giveaway, I have been watching your YouTube videos every day, but it still wont let me comment for some reason. I have been "liking" the video instead so you know I have been there and I have been clicking on it every day via your rafflecopter.
    If it doesn't count, then no worries, but just letting you know.
    Have a great day!

  38. I LOVE fresh green beans. They are amazingly crunchy and just so good!

  39. My dog really liked carrots because they are sweet.

  40. Casey likes sweet potatoes, dried or baked!

  41. Sugars favorite is anything she can get a hold of! haha She eats anything you give her!

  42. Bosley loves fruit far more than vegetables. Tomatoes are technically a fruit but I would call them his favorite vegetable!

  43. My dog's favorite vegetable is carrots. I don't know why, but he seems to like the crunch!

  44. My sister just got her dog his first BarkBox, so we are looking forward to trying one out ourselves! Barley LOVES her veggies. I can't make a salad without her begging for lettuce and as long as broccoli is cooked, she'll eat that, too. I think sometimes she likes veggies more than I do!

  45. My dog, Rudy, really likes carrots! We have guinea pigs too, and Rudy always wants to share their carrots.

  46. My dogs love green beans. I think they like the flavoring that I add to them.

  47. I think her favorite vegetable is corn. Not sure why you'd have to ask her!


  48. I have eight dogs, three of which are rescues. The rescues are a Sheltie, a long hair chihuahua and a pit bull. The others are all shelties. The pit bull can't eat vegetables, any type give him bad bad gas and usually an upset stomach...no matter how tiny the piece. The chihuahua isn't at all interested in eating vegetables. The shelties, they are a different story. My old girl is absolutely obsessed with tomatoes. To the point where she gets in the garden and picks them herself....she's done it for many years. If it's out of season I buy them at the grocery and she goes crazy when she smells them on the counter. She even taught it to my youngest little sheltie girl who was following her picking tomatoes when she was a tiny eight week old puppy. All of the other shelties love them too. They also really really love zucchini, lettuce, carrots, broccoli and pretty much any vegetable I'll give them! I have no idea what the appeal of tomatoes is, ESP with my oldest girl but she goes absolutely crazy for them. Love that this box had the cute Zucchini toy.... My dogs love getting new toys and trying new treats and this box would be fun for them to get in the mail. Thanks for the chance to to win.

  49. Wow… all those goodies… why do I have to be on a diet???

  50. Hmm...I think Riley's favorite vegetable is green beans! If the question was what's her favorite fruit, I'd know right off hand--blackberries!

  51. Shiloh's favorite vegetables are sweet potatoes and pumpkins- thankfully they're very healthy for him!

  52. He likes carrots. I think its because of the crunch.

  53. Not sure but definitely not carrots. ;)

  54. Vlad and Barkly both freak out over carrots and green peas. Not sure which one is their favorite.

  55. Jennifer - Vicki Vix on RafflecopterMarch 19, 2014 at 12:54 AM

    Like her mama Vix isn't a fan of veggies. To be honest I can't think of any she actually eats... she will do a little pumkin and a bit of sweet potato but they're starch as opposed to veg. My last springer loved veggies with the exception of peas, but carrots were probably his favourite.

  56. My Beagle likes the occasional sweet potato.
