Happy Pawlidays!

Happy Holidays Bowzer Buddies!


It’s the time of year that family and friends gather together to reflect on the year past and look forward to a bright new year and we are doing our fair share of both. It was this time last year that we were busy putting our heads together to figure out how exactly we were going to make Bowzer Box work, and just look at us now! We have come such a long way since our launch in February; we have spent the year growing our brand, meeting amazing friends and subscribers, promoting other Canadian companies that we believe in and helping dogs in need.

This last part is particularly important to us. There are so many deserving dogs across the country (and the continent and the world!) that are still without a forever home and we want to do as much as possible to help them out. It feels especially good this time of year when there is so much hustle and bustle to know that we are able to take a little time out to give back. We owe all of you a huge thank you for helping us do this. In November $1.00 from every box went to Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund which is run through the Ontario Veterinary College Pet Trust Fund. Canine Cancer is a cause close to our hearts and we were so pleased to be able to donate to this foundation which aims to find a cure for this terrible disease. And this month all of our subscribers made it possible for us to donate full boxes to a large number of dogs in need. We are hopeful these pups will find their forever homes soon, but in the mean time their Christmases are a little merrier.

For all of our followers with forever pups in your home, we know that this time of year can get a little crazy and it sometimes becomes harder to take care of your pup the same way you do in the summer time. Your pup loves you and knows that you are doing your best and you’ll make time for a good walk or a belly rub when you can, so don’t fret, but do make sure that as your holidays get underway your pet’s safety is still at the forefront. This time of year presents a whole new set of challenges from icy sidewalks to holiday foods, but if you follow these tips from the BC SCPA you’ll help your pup enjoy a safe and happy holiday with the rest of the family.

Aaaand, if you really want to make up for how busy you’ve been, your pup will be pretty happy to see a Bower box under the tree. We hope that you caught us on The Steven and Chris show or City Line as part of their holiday gift guides! We were pretty excited to be featured and it was a great way for viewers to find out a little more about what we do. We had these appearances along with a pretty puptastic 12 Days of Stocking Stuffers giveaway going on this month to show just what a great gift a Bowzer Box really is. Congratulations to everyone who went home with their own box or a special prize! If you are still looking for a last minute gift you could always give your loved one a special card surprising them with a subscription starting in January, that’s a sure way to start their four-legged friend’s year off on the right paw!

However you are celebrating this year we hope that you are safe, healthy, happy and surrounded by those you love, human and canine alike. Have the happiest of holiday’s Bowzer Buddies!

Tying it all Together

Hey Everypawdy!

So first off, how’s about this weather!? We’re keeping our paws crossed that Mother Nature is kind and it holds out a bit longer. We’re busy soaking up the sun after a summer that was well, pretty much just soaking! Kind of funny that one of the nicest weekends of the summer is here and it isn’t even summer anymore….

Speaking of it not being summer any more, it’s Fall! BOL, well you knew that, I just thought it was a great opportunity for a corny segue. And there it is again, “corny”! Sorry about this Bowzer buddies, I just can’t control myself, we’re all pretty happy it’s Friday around here at the BB headquarters:


What I’m trying to get at is there is a great event going on this weekend that really captures the essence of our September box. It ties it all together as the title of this post says- This weekend at Barkfest there will be fall foods, fun, and four-legged friends! Now that’s an event we can really get behind! We won’t be there as vendors but we are gonna do our best to pop by the Essa Agriplex in Barrie to check out all the fun! You can catch our friends from:

Boxer Rescue Ontario, Big Country Raw, Bullies in Need, Doberman Rescue Ontario, Iron Will Raw, St. John’s Ambulance Therapy Dogs

And soo many more! Barkfest-Web-Logo_500px

If you don’t have plans to head to the beach this weekend (and we envy you if you do-go soak it up!) then get your tails out there to celebrate the harvest in this amazing province of ours and support some great local businesses!


Happy Friday, have a barking good weekend!!
