This post is a sponsored collaboration between BarkBox and Gothamist staff.

We've been enjoying a lot of subscription services here at Gothamist lately, and it's been a hard time for our dog counterparts. Every day it's the same old bone, same old kibble, same old floaty toy, and not one thing to look forward to after a grueling day of loafing in the sunshine.

What's a dog to do? Without a wallet and opposable thumbs... well, not much at all, actually. Luckily, the magical deliveryman in brown brought some BarkBoxes the other day! Scroll down to check out the loot and of course, meet our illustrious team.

To celebrate, each pup got their very own trading card to show how much we love having them on our team. Was it a struggle not to Photoshop tiny ball caps on each one? Yes, yes it was.







BarkBox is a monthly subscription box just for your dog! Here's why it's the best gift a best friend could get:

It gives you a chance to spend some quality dog-human time together. New treats and toys mean you get to test them out together!

Your pup gets to try all the best new products out there, one box at a time.

Everything's been carefully selected by BarkBox's own office dogs!

You're supporting a company that gives 10% of its revenues to local rescues and shelters, donating $150k to pups in need just last year.

Every plan is customizable, right down to your dog's size, chew intensity, and allergies.

Treats, food, and bones are all full-size—no sample sizes here!

It's just so hard being an adorable dog sometimes. Show yours you care with the best box a pup can get. Sign up through this link and get a special Gothamist discount of 20% off!
