Holiday Pets: Doc’s Stew

Holiday Pets:  Doc’s Stew

A Gift:

I received a very large package from Fedex yesterday, and it was full of goodies from Andi Brown.  Here’s how my dogs reacted! I’m a true believer in this line of products. When I have a sick dog, like Bart for example, all the medicine in the world can’t necessarily save a dog’s life. They have to stay hydrated, eat, and have a will to live. Once I started making Andi’s chicken stew, Bart looked forward to meal times. If you’ve ever had to nurse a sick dog that has no appetite, you know how frustrating it is… and you know they don’t stand a chance.

But what Little Grace does is HILARIOUS!


Here’s China checking out Doc’s Stew!

Andi & Doc Holiday

Remember a little pup named Jingle from April 2011?  His litter mates were Jangle and Jubilee and they were fostered by Cathy McIlroy?  These little pups were pulled from Athens Dog Pound, but were too sick for transport.  They were actually pulled in December of 2010, and Becky Harshman found a foster for them until they could find their little legs!   They weren’t well enough for transport until late January, where they stayed with Cathy until they could be spay/neutered.  Andi Brown had her eye on little Jingle… little did we know that this little pup would hit the jackpot!

Andi writes:

“Doc” Holiday is a magnificent Border Collie Mix. He was literally down on death row in one of those “kill shelters” deep in the heart of Alabama, with his two twelve week old siblings; Jangle and Jubilee. Fortunately for “Doc”, and Andi a wonderfully intuitive rescue group called “The Dog Liberator” was able to whisk them away at the eleventh hour, and (GET THIS!) – flew them all on a private plane which landed them in a wonderful foster home in Orlando in March of 2011.

Andi had been scanning the internet for a new baby, saw a photo of Holiday and it was a match made in heaven! She wasted no time, drove nearly three hours to meet him and together they left on a journey of love.

Now, just because Andi wrote a wonderful cook book for pets…and espouses the benefits of a homemade diet, she’s not ashamed that she could find a thousand reasons to stay out of the kitchen. But, since there was nothing on the market good enough for Doc to eat, she set out again with her partner and “Master Chef”, Voyko Marx, to develop their newest line of healthy foods and products for Doc and his friends.

And that’s how Doc’s Stew® was born! There has never been a pet food this nutrient dense and of course Andi loves to brag about being able to eat it herself!

Who says a rescue dog can’t make it big in this world? Doc’s job now is happily patrolling the borders of the pet food community, making sure there’s healthy, wholesome food for every cat and dog to love and thrive on!

Doc’s ultimate mission is to help get more homeless animals adopted all over the world. You will be hearing a lot from him, the bond they share and in the coming months you’ll be hearing more about their mission to help the animals and the people who love them at and you can visit Doc Holiday and Andi on Facebook!


I can’t tell you how many times Andi’s recipes have literally saved a dog’s life.  Just recently, Bart was put on Andi’s chicken stew.  Andi spent hours talking to me over the phone designing a diet just for him, coaching me all the way.  We all know how healthy Bart got… the last time I spoke to his adopters, he’s up to 35 pounds!
