Hiya mates, and blissful Friday! And much more, Glad Undertake a Shelter Canine Month!
In the event you’ve been following the weblog for any time in any respect, I’m an enormous supporter of animal rescue, and volunteered / fostered / helped run a rescue organization once we lived in Los Angeles. It was top-of-the-line experiences of my life, the place I made unimaginable life-long mates, and every single day witnessed the significance of being extra giving, loving, and tolerant, for certain.
We at present have three rescue pups. First, there’s Pippa within the pic above, our chihuahua rescue from Best Friends as a result of Ali fell in LOVE with the little pipsqueak. We adopted her the day after the royal marriage ceremony so named her after Kate’s sister who stole the present in that white costume. Initially Jeff wished to call her Girl ChaCha (as a substitute of Girl GaGa) however she is way extra a Pippa than a ChaCha, even with these gnarly, pink nails.
After we misplaced our beloved Chewy and Gigi to outdated age, then got here Zoee from Rescue Rovers in SLC. She was a 1 half yr outdated, now four yr outdated, ball-obsessed collie combine whose Southern Utah household gave her away, however saved her litter of puppies to promote. Now that’s priorities. And a narrative all too widespread. GRRRR. She is the primary canine we’ve ever had who didn’t run away on the first probability she had, as a result of, , BALLS! I simply love her.
Then got here Prince, additionally from Rescue Rovers. Jeff wished an outdated canine, and one which was black in shade as a result of they’re the least adopted. There have been many to select from but it surely took only one look into this boy’s outdated soul eyes and we have been goners. He was a 9 yr outdated border collie who we predict will need to have been separated from his household as a result of he got here with an incredible set of manners and is the BEST cuddler on the earth. Sure, he sleeps between us all evening lengthy. He was named in honor of Prince who had died the day earlier than, and he sports activities a purple collar in his honor.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and a reminder that there are tens of millions of homeless animals who’re wonderful, and able to turn out to be a part of your loved ones. We deal with ours identical to youngsters, and that’s why we respect and assist organizations and corporations that do too.
Once I first realized the story of the founding father of Stella & Chewy’s Pet Food and the way the vet gave her rescue canine Chewy six months to dwell, so really helpful attempting a uncooked food regimen to increase his life. And so she did. And it labored. Her story jogged my memory of years in the past after I tried making uncooked pet food for my very own canine. That didn’t final lengthy. It’s a number of work!
So discovering she took her ardour for offering the most effective vitamin for her personal pets and turned it right into a nationwide firm for others to reap the advantages from, I knew this was an organization I may get behind. Meat is the primary ingredient in their raw blend kibble, like cage-free poultry, grass-fed meat and wild-caught fish, and mixed with natural vegetables and fruit that’s baked so it holds onto its dietary worth. And since Stella & Chewy’s bakes their kibble at 200 levels (the place nearly all different kibble is extruded at 500 levels) the meals has higher taste due to the low and sluggish bake.
My canine are consuming higher than I do.
And since there’s no fillers, it’s simpler to digest, and guess what else there’s much less of…yup…much less poop to scoop. That’s a bonus proper there.
It doesn’t harm that my canine go CRAZY for the uncooked mix kibble versus their outdated meals. I used to be working low final week so blended in among the outdated stuff with the Stella & Chewy’s and so they completely picked across the outdated stuff AND LEFT IT! What canine does that??
However I do know why they did. It’s as a result of every bit of the uncooked mix baked kibble is coated with irresistible freeze-dried uncooked, and so they devour it. Even my finicky eater Princey Poo Poo who waits till everybody else finishes their bowls earlier than consuming his now not hesitates to hitch the remainder of the meal time gang.
So should you’re seeking to take nice care of your personal pups and provides them the vitamin they deserve, that is the pet meals to attempt. My canine are joyfully residing proof.
So for in the present day’s hyperlinks I’m persevering with with the canine loving theme. So let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
