monthly review: March Pawalla Mini!

Oh, boy were we excited to get our Pawalla Mini! Luna couldn't wait for me to get the box open but I managed to sit them down long enough to get pictures this time.

Right after I took this, Ares snagged the monkey stick and took off running. Note the line of fur behind him. That's where Ginger's cage was while pet sitting. She went home last night and with my work schedule, I haven't had a chance to vacuum yet. It's really attractive, I know.

Their haul! I'm most excited for the shampoo!

We'll start with the Pet Greens Semi-Moist Li'l Treats - Tasty Lamb flavor. Pawalla says "The small size of Li'l treats is great for smaller dogs or when used as a training treat for larger dogs. The vegetable glycerin keeps this treat soft and chewy for fur family members. They also contain wheat grass powder which provides SOD (superoxide dismutase) an anti-aging enzyme, and GAGS (glycosaminoglycans) which are part of joint synovial fluid. This is a good, healthy treat for your fur family." They retail about $7.99 and can be found here.

They're in the shape of hearts! I love hearts! They're full of LOVE! They're also Ares and Luna approved and I'm not ashamed to admit we've already gone through half of the bag with training exercises. Actually, I am ashamed to admit it - we need more! Someone send us some!

The next thing we tried was the Natural Balance Healthy Bones Turkey, Oatmeal and Cranberry treats. As you can tell, Luna was excited for me to open the bag. Pawalla says "Natural Balance has added additional vitamin E and zinc to these tasty treats. Both the E and the zinc are related to coat quality, so there is a definite contribution from these treats. There are no artificial flavorings (rosemary is used as a preservative) or colors added. There are grains in this treat such as oats, barley, rye, which are just fine for pet foods when used in supportive roles to a meat protein." They retail at about $5 and can be found here.

Luna still couldn't resist. These were shaped like bones and had "NB" stamped on them. Ares and Luna found them delicious. Also, Luna stole most of Ares' from him. Poor Ares.

We also got a 2 oz sample bottle of Fresh Dog Oatmeal Shampoo. Pawalla says "This soap free shampoo is great for dogs sensitive to soaps and detergents. Fresh Dog shampoo contains coconut oil, oatmeal and sweet almond oil. These essential oils in this product are also aroma-therapeutic and are very pleasant. Echinacea has been added to naturally disinfect and promote healing. This is safe for kittens and puppies as well as adult dogs and cats. It can also be used by the human members of the pet family." 
I'm really excited for this one because while I don't know if it's just the winter weather or what but Luna suffers from dry skin and dandruff. This will be perfect for her! A full sized bottle retails at $12 and can be found here.

And we have to save best for last: the PetLou Monkey Stick! As I said earlier, Ares was so excited about this, he grabbed it out of the box and ran when I first opened it. Silly boy. Pawalla says "This colorful monkey is sure to please your pup! Made of ultra-thick, durable material, this plush toy stick features a loud squeaker for extra fun. PetLou uses only premium grade fabric and fillers and construction-double stitched seams for durability." They retail about $7 and can be found here.

Ares and Luna loved it! Since the weather was nice, we went out on the balcony to let them play. They ran and played tug of war to their heart's content (and don't forget the tricks for their lamb treats!)


Overall, not including the shampoo, I received about $20 in products. Pawalla Mini's run between $12-17 a month depending on the length of the subscription so I think we did great! We will definitely happily use everything that came in our box, and probably very quickly at that!
