These days our adventures are a bit limited because of my leg, but there’s one outdoor activity that I can still do: sailing! We especially love to go out on the boat with the dogs during the summer to catch the sunset over the Olympics. When Stella & Chewy’s reached out to share how we go above and beyond for our pups, I knew exactly the stories I wanted to share with you guys.
Summer in Seattle is definitely my favorite time of year. The days aren’t too hot, the nights are cool, and the sunsets are pure magic. As often as possible we try to go for a sunset sail. Usually we pack dinner for ourselves (cured meats, cheeses, a baguette, and rosé) and the dogs because the sun sets so late here. We don’t want the dogs to go hungry!
When it comes to choosing dog food, we always try to go for the very best. Lately, we’ve been feeding Lucy and Noodle the new Raw Blend Kibble from Stella & Chewy’s. There are so many reasons why this kibble is the best for our long and low crew:
- meat is the #1 ingredient using responsibly sourced exotic proteins like cage-free quail, chicken and duck, and grass-fed lamb, beef and venison
- all veggies and fruits are organic
- it’s grain, gluten, and potato-free
- and includes freeze-dried raw pieces
Feeding your dog a “wild diet” has so many benefits, too. We’ve noticed that Noodle’s coat has gotten a shinier and his appetite is way better. He has gotten pickier as he’s gotten older, but with this diet change, he’s been back to his old self! Lucy loves it, too, and I’ve noticed that the wild diet has improved the health of her gums.
Noodle was a rescue, so I’m not totally sure if he’s been around water much in his life. He used to be a lot more hesitant about the boat, but he’s starting to relax more. Usually he claims a spot on my lap and takes a good nap when the sun starts to set.
Lucy, on the other hand, is quite the adventure dog! She grew up following Sean around the boat, so we often joke that his boat is actually her boat.
We’ve been sailing so much that we now keep an extra bag on the boat (I also really love that the bag is resealable).
