Do you know what today is?

Today is a day we all come together to celebrate one of the most versatile and amazing inventions of mankind . . . 

the BOX

I LOVE boxes of all shapes and sizes

That's right, it's International Box Day!!!

Sponsored by my friends at Zoolatry and The Chronicle of Woos  

Boxes have many uses . . .

as a stool
Look how tall I am
 for shipping things

I don't think I can fit
as a snack

Nom nom nom

as a shield

and as a way to keep myself entertained when I'm home alone during the day

Legend boxes are my favorite

How do you celebrate International Box Day, you ask?

By helping mom with the recycling . . .

Helping gather up the recycling

Making sure there's nothing good left in the box
Demonstrating how to flatten boxes
before putting them in the recycling bin

 and by playing with boxes!

Now THIS is more like it

Happy Box Day!!!

* No boxes were harmed during the making of this post. . . . 
Well, maybe one.

  4. We loved this post - and it's good to know that I'm not the only one who likes to eat boxes!



  5. Our boxes are filled with old stuff! I think we're doing the right thing in commemoration of the box day.

    Have a great Box Day... Now, where are those cereal boxes.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  6. Happy Box Day! Your post made me laugh. I completely agree with your many uses for boxes. :) I love the photos too. xx

  7. I haven't met a box I couldn't open. Looks like you had a fun day!

  8. Our cat Cody likes sleeping in boxes. I don't know why i bought him a cat bed.

  9. hey-hey garth, liked the new layout and pics. love your box post too. woofs, your friend

  10. Hi Garth, nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by our blog and for participating in International Box Day. You found lots of great uses for boxes. Superb photos. Lightning thinks the best use (aside from sending us treats) is for chewing on - they make great flossing material:)

  11. I loved your comment to my advice. I had forgotten about the height differential, sorry about that!! Have a good time with all your boxes!

    1. your advice was fabulous! (it made my mommy laugh out loud!)

  12. Hi Garth. I have awarded you the Sunshine Award because your blog makes me smile and puts sunshine in my day. xx

  13. Oh Garth - I totally agree - the best thing to do with a cardboard box is to CHEW IT!!!! :-)

    ps. we put a little parcel in the post to you this week - hope it gets through US customs!!

  14. Rats! I totally missed boxing day! You are certainly versatile, all shredding and recycling. I have no doubt your human appreciates your efforts.


  15. Dear Garth,

    I told my person that we missed Box Day. I am very upset about this. I love boxes very much. Sometimes I stand on them and make my back legs go and then I get treats. Sometimes my person hides things in them, which she calls "scent work". I get treats for that too.

    I have told her that she needs to do Box Day with me soon.
