Gone Fishin' for #FarmtoTable Dog Food

My mom has always encouraged our family to make healthy lifestyle choices. Dad and I have a tendency to be, well, food motivated. He and I have also been known to occasionally suffer an allergic reaction at the mere mention of exercise. She, on the other hand, likes to eat well and her jazz hands never seem to tire during dance workouts. Her positive influence has paid off because we are all leading healthier and more active lives. As a diabetic 13-year-old senior dog I can attest to the powers of a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

Natural Dog Food Diet

My mom developed a recipe for homemade dog food called Ruby Stewbie, following my diabetes diagnosis. She took great care to incorporate ingredients which rank low on the glycemic index. Packed with fiber and protein, low-glycemic foods cause a slow, steady digestion and keep blood sugar levels stable. My diet also includes dry food. Over the years I have tried different brands, and I recently checked out the all new Canine PowerFood™ by Only Natural Pet. You are going to want to check it out too.

#FarmtoBowl Just Fish Feast Canine PowerFood

I tried to reel in my excitement when the Just Fish Feast variety of Canine PowerFood™ arrived at my door, but this food, packed with protein, amino acids and essential fatty acids, smells and tastes so good! PowerFood™ also contains low-glycemic carbohydrates like garbanzos and lentils which are sourced from farms in Minnesota and Wisconsin. These legumes provide healthy, long-lasting energy without spiking blood sugar. Delicious fruits and vegetables offer whole food sources of important vitamins and minerals. Each tasty kibble is infused with PowerBoost™, a raw, freeze-dried blend of superfoods like green lipped mussels, sea cucumbers, probiotics and pumpkin. It is corn, wheat, oat and soy-free and made with gluten-free ingredients. I love the fact that this allergy-friendly dog food was formulated by a holistic vet and is made in the USA. I am a red, white and blue heeler, after all. Canine PowerFood™ is available for purchase exclusively on www.onlynaturalpet.com, www.pet360.com, and www.petfooddirect.com beginning October 6th.

Exercise Your Healthy Habits Step by Step

I really enjoy walking my humans. We go on five scheduled walks a day. The funny thing is that mom scheduled three of the walks during times when only dad is available. Mom says that walking improves blood pressure, which is great for dad, and improves blood sugar levels, which is good for me, and helps us both maintain a healthy body weight. As a senior dog movement is so important to keep my hips and joints strong. Plus, exercising and having fun with the people you love is good for your heart in so very many ways.

Ruby Walking Dad - #PawNatural

Poor dad does not even realize the walking schedule manipulation. They say ignorance is bliss and I say he is one happy and healthy man.

Get to know Ruby (63 Posts)

Ruby spent his early days on the lam roaming the mean streets of Grafton, WV. When he was caught, he was charged with a Class D Misdogmeanor: Failure to be a good hunting dog. As part of a plea deal, he was extradited to a frozen tundra known as New England. It was there that he rescued two humans, assumed a girl’s name, and never looked back. In 2008, Ruby spent seven days in the hospital near death with diabetic ketoacidosis. He lived with canine diabetes for the rest of his life, almost eight years, and through his blogging has helped countless friends around the world with his diabetic dog food recipe, Ruby Stewbie. In 2013, he convinced his humans to move south to the warm weather and beautiful coast of North Carolina. He was always a southern charmer, after all, and his blue heeler blood was homesick. He enjoyed every single moment of his retirement. It was filled with all the finer things in life: walks on the beach, napping, getting belly rubs, and giving sweet kisses. On May 4th, 2016, Ruby passed peacefully in his sleep, surrounded by his pack. He lived 14 glorious years thanks to someone who picked him up and drove him far away, to a no-kill shelter, and into the arms of love. He remained a lover, not a hunter.
