Todd Murnan and Big Air Bella-his gorgeous and high flying Malinois, have recently won sponsorship from Canidae dog food, to aid their continued success in the 2009 Disc Dog Competition.

Todd and Bella, have a long list of championships to their name, including:

California State Champion 2008 Crusty Classic
Best in the West 2008 Crusty Classic
Ashley Whippet Invitational 2008 World Finalist

and the 2008 Disc Dog S. Cal. Rookie of the Year

Todd and Bella have also been invited to compete in the prestigious PurinaŽ Incredible Dog ChallengeŽ

The PurinaŽ Incredible Dog ChallengeŽ is an invitational event, featuring some of the best dogs in their sport. And we are proud to be backing Bella and Todd for this exciting event.

You can learn more about Bella, her many awards, and her high-flying style at her official site: Big Air Bella

We are also proud to announce that Bella will soon have a little AIDog shadow.

We will post links to watch the action, as the weather warms, and the competitions begin.

Thank you to Canidae for recognizing a couple of stars when you see them!

Congratulations, Todd and Bella! Best of luck to you in the Purina Incredible Dog Challenge and to many more years of winning competitions! Canidae couldn't ask for a better duo to showcase their line.

I've been reading about the gal who has been mushing since she was six. She feeds her dogs the Grain Free/Salmon Formula.

You know generally we don't use "dog food", but I'll give it a try.

Hey Todd, they need a story about you an Bella! Do you need us to write it for you? I am sure we could do it, without offending too many people. :(

I've already got a title for you..."When Dogs Fly.."

Which Canidae formula are you and Bella using?

Thank you everyone!!!!

We are very excited to have gotten the Canidae sponsorship. The quality of their food is exactly what Bella needs to be competitive at this level.

We use the Grain Free All Life Stages. It's a high protien low carb diet that keeps her going at a high energy through out the day.

With my busy life it's the only food she gets. However, it is a great kibble that can complement a raw diet or a home cooked meal for your dog. It's loaded with all natural good stuff and no fillers.

We also have our cat on their product Felidae and it has made a huge difference in his health. We are big time supporters of the company because of the results we have seen feeding our furry kids Canidae!

If your looking for a new food or possibly a better food I would highly recommend you give Canidae a try and promise that you will be happy with the results. I know your dog or cat will eat it up and ask for more.

I would ask that you take a few minutes and look at the company web page and see for yourself what other people are saying about their experiences with Canidae. Testimonials

Thank you CANIDAE and thank you all for your support!! We look forward to this year's competitions and with Bella being powered by Canidae I know it will be a great year!! With many more to come!

Todd and Big Air Bella

sweet just checked and there is a small business hollistic pet store about 1mile from our house said 35lb bag is $42 so thats like 10.50 per week but....we can feed in smaller portions I think so that bag may last longer than a month...I dunno but I'm going to run a test and get some.

Having a 7mo. old, 8yr old, a wife w/ extensive 'honey do list', cub scouts and other resposibilities it is crazy hard to actually get a raw food plan going so I need to find something good and healthy for our dogs

Shelby is already doing her part to bring my 'old dog' back from the dead maybe this better food and joint supplements may improve Judahs quality of life too!

Thanks! We were lucky my friend Mark knows how to work a camera. We took about 250 photos in about 20 minutes.

Here is a slide show put to music of some of them. Bella

I just showed that to my dog Coyo, and boy, did he get excited. Looks like it's going to be a muddy day for us.

You had to hit the HQ? We didn't. Really fun vid. We are totally soaked..The rain pelted us.

No pics, just a very hot tub.

Tell us about the WTF trick, again, the original one you mentioned.

I thought I was going to get a copy of the WTF trick from the TV show audition. Which I still haven't heard from them.
So, instead I thought a performance in front of a live audience would make for a better back ground! So there you have it BIG AIR BELLA on her game!!

Thanks for the props!!

Okay! I just picked up our first bag of the no grain Salmon formula, of Canidae. As you know, Coyo doesn't eat dog food, and does not usually accept treats outside. So true to form, he refused to taste it. However, once we were home, and inside, he was dying to try it.

I gave him about a quarter cup, and I will add more into his food, tonight. It looks like very nice stuff--lots of the things we get in our diet, plus vitamins, etc.
