Thoughts on ribs showing in dog? (read full post before freaking out!)

So i'm trying to solicit some unbiased thoughts and opinions on the subject. A lab mix - probably greyhound or wippet, maybe even dalmatian, with some ribs showing, slight backbone showing, and super muscular. Dog is very active, hikes and runs, climbs 14,000 mountains in colorado, etc - all with no problem. Eats usually 2 to 3 cups of quality dog food, lately part raw too - on more active day will get slightly more food.
Healthy or not? I know general consensus is you should be able to feel ribs but not see, but should that really apply across the board?
