BARK, creators of BarkBox, and “The Simpsons” are collaborating on a new dog toy collection, The Simpsons BarkBox. Throughout the month of August, new and current subscribers of BarkBox, a monthly themed box of dog toys and treats, and BARK Super Chewer, a monthly subscription for dogs who chew tough and love a challenge, can play along with the award-winning family, while supplies last. From a rubber Homer Simpson to a plush baby Maggie, BARK is reimagining characters from “The Simpsons” in a way that dogs can really sink their teeth into.

With “The Simpsons” soon to start airing its 35th season, which is 245 in dog years, it’s no surprise that long-time fans are naming their furry family members after their favorite characters from the show. Highlights from a survey of BARK dog parents include:

  • The top “The Simpsons”-themed dog name is Homer

  • Dallas, Texas is home to the most dogs named Bart

  • Pit Bulls are the top breed for dogs named Homer and Bart

  • 41% of dogs named Marge live in New York City

  • San Francisco is the top city for dogs named Lisa

  • Italian Greyhounds are the top breed named Santa’s Little Helper
