REVIEW: Pawalla Box

Pawalla Box

Where to Find:

"With a wagging tail or a contented purr, happiness arrives in every Pawalla box."

Sure, we've all heard of those boxes of pet goodies sent directly to your door, each month, right?  There's this one and that one, and this new one over here... And if your pets are as lucky as the Lapdogs, they've received one or two in the past. 

Let us now introduce you to the granddaddy of all monthly delivery boxes... Pawalla!  Not just any 'ole monthly delivery, however.  A Pawalla box consists of all-natural or organic dog or cat goodies, hand-picked and delivered directly to your door step!  NO mystery treats or questionable products to be found here! 

There are several types of Pawalla boxes available for both dogs and cats.  Dog boxes are available for puppy below 25lbs, puppy over 25lbs, adult below 25lbs, adult over 25lbs, senior under 25lbs and senior over 25lbs.  Cat boxes are available for kitten, adult cat and senior cat.  Talk about customization to your pet's specific size and needs - wow!  On top of that, all of these different size boxes are available in 2 sizes - mini and deluxe
  • Mini Boxes are $20/mo, or $18/mo with a 6 month subscription.  Each features 4-5 premium full size products consisting of treats, a toy and surprise items - but no wet food 
  • Deluxe Boxes are $30/mo, or $28/mo with a 6 month subscription.  Each features 7-9 premium full size products consisting of wet food, treats, supplements or vitamins, essentials and a toy
PawallaBox_LolaSophieTut_613Again - talk about customization and getting exactly what you want!  If you don't feed your pet wet food, you simply choose the Mini box.  If you do and would like to have it included, opt for the Deluxe box, which is what we received... and boy were we all impressed - humans and canines!  The pawesome box included:

  • A full size can of Nutrisca Turkey and Chickpea Stew
    • We had just discovered this amazing grain free canned food just before we received our box and were pleasantly surprised to find a new flavor inside.
  • A full size can of Evanger's Organics Cooked Chicken
    • Another high-end canned food that the Lapdogs can't get enough of!
  • Wigzi Stuff n' Crunch Peanut Butter Flavor cookies
    • Trust us when we say these can easily be mistaken for human peanut butter cookies - size, texture, smell and appearance wise!  Be careful what you leave unmarked on your counter...
  • Emerald Canine Duck Treats with Blueberry
    • O. M. G. If you haven't seen these yet, go look for them!  Is there anything cuter than little duck shaped treats?
  • YoPup Happy Belly treats
    • PawallaBox_SophieZeus_613
    • These are made locally in NH, yet we hadn't seen them before (although we have been fans of the Yoghund frozen yogurt for years).  These biscuits contain healthy probiotics and are drizzled with pink yogurt - a win/win!  We will definitely be adding these to our regular treat supply.
  • PushClean Pet Towelettes
    • Hypoallergenic, all-natural towelettes made out of 100% bamboo, travel friendly and easy to use - a new found love!
  • American Dog Toys Glow Balls
    • These soft, durable balls are easy to clean and they even float in the water.  We received a bright lime green one that will be easy to spot as well.
If you haven't already guessed, we are huge fans of Pawalla and the Lapdogs are giving them their Official 16 Paws Up Seal of Approval!  The humans are even adding in 4 thumbs up!  We've tried other monthly delivery boxes in the past, but nothing has even come close to what we received from Pawalla.  We have (or will soon) used everything in this box!  As a concerned dog Mama, I love knowing that everything coming each month has been hand-picked by other concerned pet parents and that everything is all natural or organic. 

In addition to the pawesome boxes, there is also a Pawalla Store where you can shop for specific all natural or organic boutique pet brands.  Like something you've received in your Pawalla box, but can't find it locally?  Check the Pawalla Store!  This is a great convenience for someone like me who likes everything in my monthly box... I can log on and buy more all in one place, plus be introduced to some other fantastic brands!

Check out Pawalla today -- you, your dog and/or your cat will not be disappointed!

Disclosure: Pawalla sent a Deluxe Box to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

Just Another Manic Monday...

It's one of those crazy-busy Mondays here at the Lapdog house.  Ever feel like you have 101 things to do and less than 4 days to get it all done?  Welcome to my world... the good and the bad.

Good. It's not raining today!

Bad. We are at the beginning of our third official heat wave of the summer... ugh! 

Good. The only time Sophie "smiles" is when she's panting in this nasty heat.  Isn't she cute?

My sweet girl thinks its too hot and she only smiles when she pants. #houndmix #rescue #adoptdontshop #dogstagram

Good.  The humans are getting ready to take their first real vacation in nearly three years!

Bad.  This human is having panic attacks about leaving her babies behind.


Good. I do adore the doggy palace they stay at.

Bad.  The dogs are not amused with all the hustle and bustle going on (read: cleaning, purging clothes, more cleaning, some cursing, cleaning some more and eventually packing) for the past several days in preparation for said vacation. 

Good. The dogs' annoyance sometimes provides for great photo opps...


Bad.  Back to the anxiety about having to leave my babies behind while we're so far away from home... look at that sad face above.

Good. My web and design classes are going well...

Bad. I have a class today and tomorrow, when I'd rather be spending time organizing, packing and playing with the dogs... and I, um, better get back to today's.

REVIEW: Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats

Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats

Where to Find:


When our friends over at asked us if we would review Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats, the Lapdogs howled in song at the chance to do so!  They have had various freeze-dried beef and chicken treats in the past and always go nuts for more, so I was sure these would be a hit!
Orijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats are made in Canada with 100% meat, poultry or fish, using special flash-freezing techniques without cooking or adding preservatives.  This process allows all of the nutrients and amazing flavors of the fresh ingredients to be fully retained in a bite-size treat that dogs are sure to love!  These ingredients are all delivered fresh or raw to Orijen, who use only free-range protein sources perfectly matched to the carnivorous needs of our dogs.

Orijen_Tut_7213dCropOrijen Freeze-Dried Dog Treats are available in several different flavors, including Black Angus Beef, Free Range Bison, Brome Lake Duck, Tundra, Ranch Raised Lamb, Alberta Wild Boar, Regional Red and Original.

We opted to try the Tundra variety.  These grain-free treats are made with 6 simple, wholesome ingredients: boneless venison, elk liver, boneless elk, venison liver, boneless quail and steelhead trout. Yes, I said venison, elk, quail and steelhead trout - you can't ask for better game protein sources!  These ingredients are designed to not only provide excellent nutrition for our 4-legged friends, but a delish taste as well. 

Orijen_Zeus_7213Additionally, Orijen Tundra Treats have only 5 calories, making them perfect for between meal snacking or training.  With 2 senior dogs and 2 allergy prone dogs in the Lapdog household, these freeze-dried treats really are perfect for our needs!  In fact, the Lapdogs have given Orijen Freeze-Dried Tundra Dog Treats their Official 16 Paws Up Seal of Approval!  They have been begging for more ever since our review taste-test!

If you're looking for some fantastic freeze-dried game treats for your pack, check out all of the flavors Orijen has to offer at, where you will always receive free 1-2 day shipping on orders over $49!
