Backcountry Dogs, Deserve Merrick Backcountry Food and Treats
Living full time in our RV, we are inherently very outdoorsy. We were before moving into the RV, but now we are more than ever. We definitely prefer the back road way of life, to being in town any day.
Torrey and Roxy absolutely love this life. They get to walk or hike in the backcountry almost everyday. All those new places, all those new smells. Keeping them fit and healthy is a huge priority for me. Not only is it sometimes hard to find a vet, but of course I want to avoid the vet if we can. Feeding them healthy food and treats is a great start for healthy dogs.
Torrey has been eating Merrick dog food for quite some time. I’m pretty picky about what my dogs eat and I feel good about the quality, and the ingredients in Merrick.
Merrick’s Backcountry is a wonderful combination of high quality, high protein kibble and freeze dried raw pieces.
I love that it’s grain free, but Torrey just cares that it’s tasty. Merrick also has just the freeze dried raw pieces. These can be added to kibble, or moistened and served as a wet food. This is a great option for raw feeders, or people like us with limited space for storing things.
Both dogs are just thrilled to be back in the desert. Roxy feels better in the warmth, and both dogs are happy about more walking, and freedom.
Last year when we got here, Torrey couldn’t run because of the partial tear in her ACL. She couldn’t go on long walks either. This year, she is making up for that.
Torrey and I went on a hike yesterday to the sand dunes, about a mile and half from where we camp. She loves running in the sand anyway, and it was a good time to practice her Sit, Stay too. I had her sit, then I would walk away, and call her to me.
First, an update. Al took Silver to the Dodge dealership Monday morning. They tested it, decided we needed a new DEF injector, and to have the DEF system flushed. Thankfully they had the part. I had stayed at the RV with the dogs, so he just wandered around for a few hours till the truck was done. As soon as it was done, we hooked up and got the hell out of Butte. Without a doubt, that was one of the scariest, yuckiest, RV parks we have ever had to stay at. Al came back and said the Walmart parking lot would have been a better option, that’s saying something. We clearly had no choice this time, but we were sure glad we got to leave.
Silver, free and well again.
I had looked on Freecampsites.net a few days earlier to see what boondocking options we had between Butte, which will forever be Butt to me, and Bozeman, MT. There is really only one place, about 10 miles out of town. Too close really, but that’s all we had. We found a pretty good spot, and settled in.
