An American Eskimo's Simple Pleasures (aka FOOD!) #SimplyNaturalDog

A simple pleasure with a genuine smile

Today we are joining with the Simply Natural campaign to remind ourselves to focus on your dog's simple pleasures in life.

Ruckus has many simple pleasures that leads him to a happy dog.


Ruckus shows enthusiasm when he is rewarded with a delicious and crunchy treat. Ruckus's favorite snack to munch on is carrots! It is important to feed your pup healthy and nutritious food suitable for their age and medical conditions. There is no perfect dog food for any dog. It's best to consult your veterinarian for recommendations.


One of the most pleasurable feeling is the ability to quench your thirst! Ruckus is a water tank--he will chug and chug water, especially in the summer. With his fur, it is the perfect mechanism to cool down. A fun idea that we are considering is the use of a water fountain to help filter the water he consumes. It would create a soothing zen resonance in which Ruckus (and I) may enjoy.


A clean dog is a happy dog! And Ruckus will definitely let you know it. He looks forward to his daily grooming session. It definitely creates a bond between us and our pup. In fact, I think he considers it his massage session! Daily brushing helps prevent mats from forming and reduce dander in the house. 


Ruckus's smile is easily portrayed after a good run or chase. He absolutely loves to be chased by anyone or anything! The best toy is a toy that will help him stay fit--and you probably can guess. Yes, it's a ball! He has these cat-like tendencies with associated pouncing and swatting.

To summarize, there are certain responsibilities to caring for our beloved canine friends and as you can see, it is not difficult to help your pup find the simple pleasures. We hope that you are able to carry this forward and share with us your dog's simple pleasures in life. Whether it includes bed time cuddling or chase sessions at the dog park, it's all important to the overall lifestyle that we provide for our four-legged friends.

Glass of wine with every meal definitely not suitable for dogs!
