What a reaction from Max!

First, let me thank everyone for all the inspirational, heartwarming, comments you wrote about our Carly. It's still not easy going over to my sisters and not hearing Carly bark or be staring at us at the window when we get there, but your words helped a lot and I know she had a wonderful life while she was here - thank you all!  It meant the world to us!
Well, on to happier things, I don't do depressed or sad good sooo.....
We got our BarkBox today and I opened up the Zukes Carrot tiny bone first and thought Max would like it especially since it was so small...nope...it bombed! BUT...the Acadia Antlers, Moose Taster....well, I have NEVER EVER EVER (ok, I'm no Taylor Swift), seen Max have such a strong reaction!!! I need stock in this product! Jeez! I am still just stunned! If a picture's worth a thousand words....and since you ALL know HOW picky Max is....
(Note:  If you click on the BarkBox link here then you'll get a $5 instant coupon and Max will get 1 month free! So if you are thinking about trying it, save yourself $5 and Max would appreciate you going through this link so he'll get yummies too!)
Don't bother me Ma...not polite for me to talk with my mouth full!!

Whatever Ma...snap away but don't touch my Antler!

Wow! This is like pup crack!! I'm hooked Ma! 

Hey Ma...hey Ma....I'll be needing your credit card.....time to do some Online Antler Shopping! 
(Official Disclaimer:  nope, wasn't given doodly squat for this review or even a free sample, etc. - just was super impressed and wanted to share in case any of you have picky pups like Max cuz this was a major score! They are American made and no animals are hurt in making the chews)

Have a beautiful today and hide your credit cards...those pups are sneaky!!!

  2. If you don't mind some old antlers we would be happy to send you ours. Mom bought a packet of them two years back after hearing how much all the doggies loved them....we took a sniff...looked at mom with that "are you crazy...you want us us to eat a rock" look and we have given them a second thought since.

  8. Our dogs are nuts for antlers. Glad Max found such a yummy treat! So would you have tried that if you had not received it in a bark box?

    1. Oh, I owe you guys an apology - with all that's been going on and taking care of Dad straight from work the past few days I am all screwed up and forgot This 'N That Thursday! Urr!!! No, I would have never bought the antlers had it not been for the BarkBox! They have turned me on to a few big hits with Max!

  11. Torrey liked antlers like that, then decided she didn't anymore. Go figure. They just had the antler auction here in Jackson Hole, everyone was commenting on how the price is going up because of dog chews.

    1. Ok, so I have to know as I am more of a city-girl type,what else do you use antlers for that there would be an auction on them there? My curiousity is definitely peeked!

  12. OUr mom often gets stuck in taylor swift land when she is writing a post...never.ever.......well you know how it goes....mom has saw antlers and wanted to try them for us, but she was afraid we would poke each others eyes out with the end of them....oh mom how embarrassing!

    1. That song is pretty catchy...weird :)...well, the ones I got aren't pokey so maybe you'd wanna try this kind? You can see in the photos that these ones are long, flat types. Come on Mom...:)

  13. Mmmm. Rita loves it when I give her an antler. I don't give them too often, cuz I'm afraid she'll chip a tooth, but man do they whiten up the teeth!

    Enjoy, Max!

    1. Well I don't like the idea of a chipped tooth but white sounds great! :)

  14. Beamer LOVED the moose antler he got back in November. We have a deer antler for him, but he's not as crazy about it. Glad you're still loving the BarkBox. Maybe Chloe will like the Zukes bone.

    1. I heard that today that a lot of pups won't eat the deer antlers...who knows! Yes, we love the bark box!!! I'm sure Chloe will like the carrot Juke bone, if not I have dog Moms and Dads at work whose pups will like them :)

  16. wonderful review! Dakota had a Bark Box and loved it. BTW this is exactly what I was referring to when I said "do more than what is expected"....feature a brand that you got nothing for featuring them and make sure they see this!

  17. Gosh Max - that thing is almost as big as you are - I bet it lasts a while too - even if you gnaw and chew and bite and pull it's gonna be around for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time! YAY!

  18. I love that you love antlers, I myself don't care for them. Mama says they are a healthy and lasting treat and she wishes I liked them, ah well.

    1. I'm curious if they were deer antlers you tried? See how these ones are flatish?

  19. Haha, that antler is bigger than you are Max!
    We got them a while ago but Bridge didn't like hers, it made Dip's mouth bleed and Elliot chewed his for 30 seconds then lost interest. So that was money well spent, BOL.

  20. We love BarkBox! Mom stopped our subscription for a few months so she could get a subscription for herself. The nerve! She said she would sign us back up for the BarkBox in a little while. She better. Looks like you're really giving that bone a workout, Max!

  22. Oh man, I loved the antler too Max! But then again, I love all elk and deer antlers...something about gnawing on such a large animal without getting trampled to death...hehehe! :-D You would probably like the ones that are put on ropes too, they are a bit smaller for traveling in cars and stuff! :-D Great review, gnaw on dude!!

    1. We might have to check out the rope ones - maybe Max might finally play with a toy :). Ha-love your reasons why you like they Goose!

  25. Oh Max have you ever got a death grip in that antler. Now don't be like me and try to swallow the entire thing at once. It is kind of hard on the system coming out.
    Thanks for being a friend

  27. bailey loves zuke's carrot z-bones! she doesn't have the jaw strength to eat a bone like a "normal dog" so we have to chop it up into teeny pieces for her. she tried the antler, but if she can't handle a z-bone, there is NO WAY she can handle an antler! max doesn't seem to be having any trouble with it.
    considering what max likes and doesn't like from barkbox, do you think it's worth the money? just wondering.

  28. I see what Max is putting on his Christmas list this year :) Giz has an antler that he brings to bed with him (honest) and kind of nuzzles...weird, right BOL!
