The Farmer's Dog: Ruby's Results

We started Ruby on The Farmer's Dog in mid-June and the results have been remarkable. The Farmer's Dog is a personalized, ready-to-serve, pre-proportioned, subscription-based dog food made from fresh, human-grade, minimally processed ingredients sourced from restaurant suppliers and local farms. When you sign up for The Farmer's Dog, you create an individual profile based on your dog's size, age, breed, medical conditions, allergies, activity level, etc. The Farmer's Dog then creates a meal plan just for your dog delivered right to your door. To learn more about how the program works, check out my first post here.

Top Five Reasons Underdogs Are Awesome

I love underdogs and think they are pretty awesome. Underdogs are not just dogs - they can be cats, rabbits, dogs, and even people. All rescue animals are underdogs, but older animals as well as those with emotional baggage or physical issues are the super duper underdogs. The mission of this blog has always been (and will always be) about rooting for the underdog, making sure they get a fair shot and hopefully a second chance. Underdogs are awesome and here's why!

Underdogs are awesome because they have huge hearts and never give up

Ruby On The Farmer's Dog

Ruby is a rescue dog. We adopted her when she was six or seven years old. She was brought to Chicago's Animal Care and Control after being found living in horrible conditions with many other dogs. It is clear she has had multiple litters of puppies and like most mama dogs, probably gave away everything she had to her babies.

Ruby has some chronic health and autoimmune issues including Vasculitis in both ears. Providing her with a nutritionally dense, natural diet has always been a priority for us (to make up for the neglect in her past). We have tried different foods, but until recently hadn't found one that addressed ALL her issues.

But we finally found the perfect food for Ruby - The Farmer's Dog! Ruby started on  The Farmer's Dog in mid-June and the results have been pretty remarkable. Before we get to her results, here's what you need to know about The Farmer's Dog.

Hiking With Couch Potatoes And Rescue Dogs

Hiking Tips For Couch Potatoes and Rescue Dogs With Issues

Ruby is your basic couch potato, not lazy, just chill. As a rescue pup with a troubled past, she likes to remind us that now is her time to relax and live stress-free in a safe place (AKA the couch or our bed).

She enjoys walks around the neighborhood, but longer hikes in unfamiliar locations make her nervous as do new people. But she also has some abandonment issues and hates being left out. We have slowly been exposing her to new people and places  (sometimes rescue dogs need a little extra encouragement). Fresh air, exercise, and new experiences are good for her health and confidence. We take things slowly and always have a back up plan in case she gets anxious.
