OMD where do I start, today was just sooo exciting! Yesterday a box arrived in the post, addressed to me… but we were in the car on our way out when the postman came so mum put the box in the shed. Can you believe that? My parcel got put in the shed.
It was eventually retrieved and I couldn’t wait for her to open it for me. I was going to try out a Ruby & Duke box and I was only too happy to volunteer my services. Before it arrived we’d looked at the website which explained that Ruby & Duke boxes are a subscription thing where you can have a box a month delivered to your door and each box will always contain a different selection of goodies! How cool is that?
This is MY box.
I started off by having a good sniff to check everything out.
Mmmm nom nom I can smell treats… I think I should try those first.
I decided that I wanted to try the natures:menu Venison with Blueberry snacks first… ‘Seriously Meaty Deliciously Tasty and very Healthy’ is what it said on the packet, so mum told me. Oh who cares, just give me one right now.
Oops I couldn’t even wait to pose nicely for the first one… I was right in there, no polite waiting until i was told I could take it!
For the second one I was a little more restrained! Well, that choice of treat certainly went down very well indeed. I give them a paws up.
In the box was also a Rosewood Chubleez squeaky toy with an empty water bottle inside. Double fun, it squeaks and makes a loud noise when you squish the bottle!
Oooh a Kong squeakier tennis ball. What dog doesn’t love a good quality tennis ball… especially one that squeaks!
So many things… oh look, a pack of 4 rolls of BecoBags which are eco friendly poop bags. Well, every dog does at least one poop per day, me, I do two… and just for a woof I sometimes do an extra one just for fun. Luckily mum usually has an emergency poo bag for those ‘extra’ little surprises. These little rolls are very handy to keep in the car and in coat pockets, and we love these eco friendly degradable bags – it says on the box that standard plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to degrade and a million plastic bags are used every minute! I’m glad we already use eco friendly bags. So, another great addition to the Ruby & Duke box.
Soopa Papaya treats? Really? Papaya? I’ve never seen these before. I don’t think these are something that mum would normally pick up for me to try – 100% Fruit & Veg Dog Chews, Low Calorie and 1/5 a day. I like apple and orange and also eat melon and strawberries, but I’ve never had papaya.
Can you see that I look a little reluctant to take this treat? I did take it and went to my bed to have a chew… first I dropped it and had a sniff. Then I picked it up and had a little bite.. and another bite.. and, do you know what? I liked it. These aren’t half bad… in fact they’re totally yummy! Now, if I’d not been sent a pack to try, I’d probably never ever have tried them!
Quick, give me another one! I’m a Papaya fan… and they’re low calorie so just right for a girl looking after her figure!
So, what did I think of my Ruby & Duke box? I thought it was great. To recap, inside my box I had:
A Kong Squeakair Tennis Ball
A box of 4 rolls eco friendly BeCo Bags
A Rosewood Chubleez Squeaky Comfort Dog toy
A 100g pack of Soopa Papaya 100% Fruit & Veg Dog Chews
A 50g pack of natures:menu Venison with Blueberry Seriously Meaty snacks
Certainly gets my 5 paw rating!
Huge thank you to Ruby & Duke for letting me try a fabulous #DukeBox. Now I just have to get mum to sign me up for a regular box, or perhaps I’ll just send a box to my friends on their birthdays! What a fab present that would be!
So, why not pay a visit to the Ruby & Duke website and have a look.
Special note for Jack, you know who you are! If you’re reading this, I know it’s your birthday very soon, so just close your eyes and forget you saw this!
