Meet Duncan and his dog Bella
Get to know Duncan and his dog, Bella, who took the Purina ONE 28-Day Challenge with us in Asheville, North Carolina.
It’s a rare day in Asheville when you can’t find Bella pulling Duncan on his skateboard, running for all she’s worth. And it’s clear from the big smiles on both their faces that they’re having a great time.
Duncan is in art school and, after he moved into his own place for the first time, was looking for a pet to keep him company. He paid a visit to Brother Wolf, a local pet shelter, and came home with Bella.
Ever since, they’ve been inseparable. Bella’s incredible energy is what convinced Duncan to try skateboarding with her.
“When she was old enough to really run, I started letting her run alongside. And then she started going ahead. And I got her a harness and she just started pulling.”
And after that, Duncan and Bella began meeting new friends left and right. They’re pretty hard to miss, cruising through town on the way to the grocery store, the park, or the laundromat together.
Duncan and Bella gave the 28-Day Challenge a try by switching Bella’s food to Purina ONE SmartBlend True Instinct Formula. And how does Duncan feel about the Challenge now that his 28 days are up?
“The fact that she gets to experience it and meet new people and do new things and eat good food and just be healthy, it makes me really happy,” he says.
If you’re ever in Asheville, keep an eye out for Duncan on his skateboard and the beautiful red blur of Bella leading the way. As Duncan says, she’s happy to do it. “She is just a ball of energy and love all the time.”
