Thoughtless Thursday #97: Crabbing Action thanks @BarkBox @PetPlaySF


I'd say crab is a nice alternative to turkey, but what with the neuro-toxin plaguing the Northern California crabs...maybe we'll just leave 'em to Ruckus. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Shopping at PetSmart for some treats #NaturesRecipe

Ruckus pointed out to this salmon snack as a must-try
Ruckus the Eskie recently partnered up with Nature's Recipe® in a campaign to drive awareness to their products as a step up in pet food nutrition without a steep step up in the costs and availability. Simple small changes in nutrition can make a huge difference in a dog's health. We wanted to reach out to Pet Parents to bring awareness and guidance to affordable options available out in the market. In fact, we made a trip to visit our local pet food store, PetSmart!

Fueling Up for Indoor and Outdoor Parks #AvoDermNatural

This post is sponsored by Avoderm and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Avoderm Revolving Menu but ruckustheeskie.com only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers.

It's been a few more weeks since we started trying Avoderm®, and Ruckus is looking good and acclimated to this brand new food. Look how happy he for an after meal stroll in the park:


Ruckus is definitely an energetic dog and love his walks, even as the fall, and El Nino approaches. It's okay since California really needs the rain right now. Although, if you've ever had an American Eskimo during the rainy season, you'll definitely know it's not a walk in the park! Even when he goes into the backyard to relieve himself, he gets into a lot of trouble playing with the neighbor's dog beyond the fence. Cleaning those paws, with the long white fur that grows between them, with our carpet being as white as our pup...is definitely no fun!

That's why it's great to have the AvoDerm Revolving menu to help him calm down and eat in a set area away from our carpet. To recap, the menu provides the following:
  • Help minimize the risk of food sensitivities by varying proteins
  • Switch proteins with stomach/digestive upset (duck today, lamb tomorrow!)
  • Grain Free, Gluten Free
  • A limited ingredient list to help further minimize sensitivities
  • No white potatoes or fillers
  • Available in smaller sized kibble for little dogs as well!
It seems to be avocado season here in California as well. We've gotten quite a bunch from the local grocery at really good prices. So, avocado dog food for Ruckus, and avocado for us! Avocados are a nutrient rich superfood that helps both humans and pets absorb the nutrients they need. They're rich in healthy fats and omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.

To avoid the wetness for Ruckus, we've also discovered there are indoor dog parks! You get all the benefits of the exercise, with none of the dirt clump fuss!


Here is Ruckus relaxing on a triangle platform...well...he should be running up and down it, but it was his first time, so he sauntered across it, I would say. Yet, he definitely didn't mind being at the top of the triangle, getting a good view of the other dogs!




Avoderm Natural is made in the USA specifically in California and created using California Avocados and high quality proteins.  You can purchase online through this website: Avoderm.

When Ruckus is hungry, he goes straight to the source. What you see up there are two nice little chickens, ripe for the picking! Just kidding! No chickens were harmed in this taking of this photo. I don't think the chickens even cared that Ruckus was there.
