Sometimes, I need to take a break from travel completely and I guess I generally do that on my trips home to Northern Ireland, despite my 2014 Northern Ireland tour. When I return to my sensational Northern Irish homeland, one star of my show was never given much publicity on here – my family’s dog Rocky. Here he is…I wrote his name on sand back in 2009 on a trip home…
Rocky continued to be the star of the show on Skype calls, What’s App messages and calls home through my 151 country journey which saw me wind up in Poland. While Poland stole my heart and is the first place I have settled in for longer than a consecutive year since Bournemouth 2008 – 2009. It beggars my own belief that was almost a decade ago.
When I returned home in October 2014 to watch Northern Ireland play Faroe Islands, my brothers were all there and we got Rocky boy, being a male and a Cairn Terrier (Northern Irish born) with a football hat to celebrate. It was rare to find all three of my brothers together in the same room, having a beer, wearing the same shirts and for sure Rocky was excited.

Pure Dog Food
Thanks to the UK based company, Pure Pet Food, who cater for dogs with “fussy diets” and “picky and sensitive dogs”, we recently converted Rocky to Pure Dog Food –https://purepetfood.co.uk/chicken-dinner – we chose the “Chicken Dinner” option which contains the equivalent of
– 13 chicken breasts
– 20 Parsnips
– 400g chicken liver
– 6 potatoes
– 4.5 bunches of carrots
– 500g green beans
– 1 cabbage
– 2.25 apples
It is a grain free dry mixture, which you then add water to, let it sit for 10 minutes and it’s ready to serve!
SO if you have a picky, fussy or sensitive dog, this is the stuff for you – there are different sizes and flavours. All orders within the UK over £20 have free delivery, here are the full details:

Never heard of Pure Dog Food but looks like a great option for picky eaters. Thanks for sharing =)
Interesting food choice! How much time per day week do you spend prepping and cleaning for his meals? Trying to weigh the pros and cons of this type of diet vs an air dried brand!
Hi Jordan, thanks for the comment. 5 minutes? It doesn’t take long! A great food for dogs! Best regards, Jonny
Hi Nick, thanks for the comment. Yes, Rocky the dog loved it and he is a picky and fussy eater. Best regards, Jonny
Hi Jonny, seems these foods are healthy enough. I will bring it for my Aggy. You know she likes homemade foods but recently she also takes several pet foods like this. So I definitely bring this good food for my Aggy. Hope she will be happy to get this kind of healthy food.

Hi Bundaberg Vets, Thanks for the comment and for checking out my article. Apologies for the delay – I haven’t been checking my website comments and messages for a while due to depression. Stay safe. Jonny
Hi Ralph, thanks for the comment and apologies for the delay in response. The blog and I have been going through serious mid life crisis and depression, caused (not by me of course) by a serial liar and a Guru God wannabe. Yes a cute dog – my book is now available – Backpacking Centurion – A Northern Irishman’s Journey Through 100 Countries: Volume 1 – Don’t Look Back In Bangor (1) . Stay safe. Jonny
