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?
Asking for the boyfriend, who lives in the San Diego area: If I wanted to learn how to make hand pulled noodles (as seen in these videos) where would I go? I'm willing to travel as far as Los Angeles area, and depending whether it was affordable, willing pay to learn the technique.
