Just because a dog does well on a low quality food doesn't mean they are thriving. It also doesn't mean the nutritional value is supplying the dog what it needs to live healthy.
Some dogs do well entire lives on very cheap feed simply because their genetics have offered them a rock solid foundation of strong immunity and excellent digestive systems.
More often than not, however even these dogs break down over time and problems start to rise. A dog on cheap quality feed can develop seasonal allergies, skin and coat dryness or irritations, poor immune systems later in life, chronic infections, loose stool, feed related allergies such as ingredient specific, chronic ear infections, poor sight all the way up to death on VERY poor quality feeds.
Of course dogs can get these things out side of feed related however the risk is significantly increased with poor diet.
When someone says "best food ever" of course this is partially subjective but not so much as people seem to cling to as there is a very cut and dry, black and white difference between what is or isn't offering a dog the quality dietary needs to thrive.
Don't look for the AAFCO is just as much of a joke as any, corrupt and is often bought by feed companies to allow them to put on their bags approval.
However Blue from a nutritional value stand point is far from the "best food ever". Over priced garbage, the company spends more in loopholes and advertising than it does quality of ingredients.
