JRBP-November

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving and couple days off like we are! It is always nice to spend more time with family because they are all off from work and school. Today mom and I got to go on a long walk, still burning off that turkey from Thursday! I fueled up on my Scooby's Blend, this time in grain-free salmon flavor before we headed on our walk, so I could be full of energy. You can just see below from our walk on how shiny my coat looks, and how healthy my physique is, thanks to all of the healthy ingredients that goes into my Scooby's Blend.
Another awesome feature about using Just Right by Purina is that they share many informational articles written by Just Right experts. Recently, they came out with an article called, 7 Secrets of Dog Food Ingredient Buyers, which talks about where the ingredients for each blend of Just Right by Purina's food comes from. At Just Right by Purina, Viktoriya Gossage is in charge of buying the ingredients, and talks about the trends, sustainability, and quality of each ingredient in the dog food industry. 
When the holiday's are here, my humans always make sure to keep an eye on me to make sure I do not eat anything I am not suppose to eat. Since this past Thursday was Thanksgiving, the humans got to indulge in a bunch of delicious and savory dishes, and so did I. When it comes to human food, meat is my favorite treat, so in my Scooby's Blend, it got mixed in with some turkey, green beans, and sweet potatoes. This was a great meal to add in some extra protein and low calorie vegetables. Since there are always a lot of leftovers, I will also get rewarded with a bite of turkey as well. 
If you would like to check out some of the helpful and informative articles that Just Right by Purina has to offer, then head over to www.JustRightPetFood.com. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving, I know I am very thankful for my family, and being able to eat a high quality dog food.

JRBP-September/October

Happy Fall everyone!
Today was actually the first day here in Texas that it felt like fall, that's why we had to whip out the sweater! (And how cool is it that I am matching the picture on the bag of my Scooby's Blend). 
It has been a busy couple of weeks, and speaking of, my third Birthday is on Thursday. I am still as happy and healthy as ever, and we give most of the credit to my nutrition..because I eat Just Right by Purina of course. 
The last month or so I have been eating the salmon grain-free blend, and it is wonderful. Every month when we re-order my Scooby's Blend, we always change up the protein, and the photo, and sometimes we even edit my preferences in my profile.
 I wanted to share with you guys what is unique about myself. If I had to pick the one thing that stands out the most, it would be my radiant Corgi smile! Whether I am posing for pictures or just hanging around in the house, I am always showing off my teeth with a huge grin.
A really cool thing about Just Right by Purina that makes it more unique than other dog food brands is that their are certain ingredients in my Scooby's Blend that promotes my dental health.
I have attached this image from www.JustRightPetFood.com to show you exactly what I am talking about. There are many different ingredients that help freshen my breath, reduce plaque build up, and support strong teeth. 
I recently went to the Vet for my annual check up, and they said my teeth looked outstanding. Everyone there are always intrigued when they ask about what food we use and we explain to them what Just Right by Purina is all about.
Now, with October just beginning, one of my favorite holiday's are coming sooner than we know it..Halloween! Mom and I love Halloween because we get to dress me up in super cute costumes, and attend pet friendly events and costume contests together. 
Finding different activities in the Dallas area is one of our favorite things to do together. Last year I was a Firefighter..and this year we are still deciding. I would love to see what everyone is going to be!
As always, if you want to learn more about what Just Right by Purina is about, or how to get started on making your own personalized blend, then head over to their website at, www.JustRightPetFood.com, or feel free to ask us any questions on my social channels.

JRBP-July

This month, our topic is about fillers. Now I am sure when you think of the word "fillers" and dog food in the same sentence that it must not be a good thing. Speculations are all over the internet saying that fillers are unnecessary and not needed..but that is what we will find out in this post. For instance, grains that are in dog food (that are cooked of course) contain carbohydrates that give our dog's energy, and other important nutrients just like they do for humans. There have also been speculations about corn being a bad ingredient in dog food, but I have attached an image from Just Right by Purina's website that breaks down the purpose of corn in your dog's food here:
The cool thing about Just Right by Purina is that you have the option to decide whether you want your dog's blend to include grains, or be grain-free. Scooby's Blend has always been grain-free, just because that is what has always worked best for us. So instead of grains, Scooby's Blend contains cassava root flour instead. This ingredient serves as the main carbohydrate for energy for Scooby. Scooby's grain-free Blend is completely balanced to equal the same nutrients as a blend with grains would have. If you cannot decide if you should feed your dog a dog food with grains or no grains, then you can check out this link on their website here: Should I feed my dog grain-free food
Another argument in the pet food industry is which is more important: animal protein or live protein? Just Right by Purina explains that there is no better choice, that both options can equally have the same amount of animo acids that our dogs need in their diet. Just like human's, protein is a crucial part of your diet, and are the building blocks of amino acids. Another thing we really like about Just Right by Purina is they break down which proteins go into each blend we create. For example, I have attached this image from their website to show you what kind of combination of animal and plant protein goes into your dog's food here:
If you'd like to read more about the value of the two different proteins, then click here: Plant protein in dog food
There have been misconceptions about a couple ingredients in dog food that have been considered fillers but are not, and that is corn gluten meal, oat meal, and pea starch. Corn gluten meal has the starch, germ, and bran removed first, for it to become an excellent source of amino acids and protein. Oat meal contains nutrients such as fiber and Omega-6-fatty acids that helps your dog's skin and coat. Pea starch, (which is in Scooby's grain-free Blend) gives carbohydrates for energy. 
At the end of the day, we just want the best for our pets, and to strive to give them the best nutrition possible! That is why we have stuck with Just Right by Purina, and will never turn back!

JRBP-June with Q&A’s, answered by Purina expert, Dr. Gerardo Pérez-Camargo. MRCVS. PhD. Global Pet Welfare and Behavior Manager

This month at Just Right by Purina, we got to ask their experts a couple of our top unanswered questions that we want to know about our pet. The two questions I asked, have always been up in the air waiting to be answered!
Below are the top two Q&A’s, answered by our Purina expert, Dr.  Gerardo Pérez-Camargo.  MRCVS. PhD.
Global Pet Welfare and Behavior Manager.
1.       Why does Scooby never eat his food immediately after it is poured until his bowl, and this goes for both meals, every day!
A: Some dogs are fast eaters, some are not.  It might be that Scooby is not very food driven, or he knows that you will always provide food for him and he does not need to worry about it. The only cause for concern would be if Scooby changes his normal behavior or if he does not eat anything at all by the end of the day. Keep an eye on his body weight to make sure he remains healthy. 
2.      Why does Scooby always throw his bones up in the air while eating them?
A: Scooby seems to be very playful dog.  Sometimes dogs like to imagine that some objects might be alive and they have to chase them to catch them.   By throwing the bone in the air, it is like the bone becomes alive for a while and Scooby has to hunt it.
 Of course as a pet parent we are not perfect, and there are always things I do not know about, so it is awesome to learn something new. For a while, I always thought it was the food that I was feeding Scooby, and that he did not care for it, but any time I would switch foods, he would still act the same. Since we have fed Scooby his Scooby’s Blend by Just Right by Purina, this has been the quickest I have seen him finish his food. It still takes him a while to start eating (and since he is a such a smart and sassy guy, I think Dr. Perez-Camargo is right about Scooby knowing that he is always going to get fed twice a day, so it is always going to be there for him, therefore he will eat on his own time frame).
As for him always throwing his bones up in the air, this was always a question I wanted answered because I have never seen another dog do this before, and I also felt as if this would be a trait in cats, more than in dogs. Scooby has never done this with a toy or any other object before, so it does make sense that since it is a bone he can eat, he is trying to make it like live prey.
We are very fortunate to be able to have such a great dog food brand with excellent customer service and team that always are here to answer our questions and give us advice!
As always, you can head over to their website to learn more, or speak to one of their experts yourself!

JRBP-April

Hi to all! I wanted to show everyone how much I enjoy my own Scooby's Blend from Just Right by Purina! This month my choice of protein is chicken. Now normally chicken would not be our number one pick for the meat source, but we had so much success with the lamb and salmon that we wanted to see how the chicken tasted. So here we have me enjoying dinner time..
Now of course I do not eat my food outside, but I thought it would be better quality for the camera to do it outside than it would in the kitchen. I eat twice a day, one time in the morning when the humans are eating breakfast as well, then again in the evening when the humans are back at home enjoying dinner as well..so we are all in the kitchen eating as a family! Whenever I am not feeling as hungry that day, or not as excited to eat my food, we will mix in a little bit of canned food. 
My servings are usually a 2/3 a cup of food in the morning, and 2/3 a cup of food in the evening, that is what the Scooby's Blend recommending serving is! I have been consistently eating Just Right by Purina for over a year know I we have noticed a remarkable difference in my skin, fur, and body shape! As always, if you would like to create your own blend, then head over to www.justrightpetfood.com
