Dogs, just like us humans, tend to get dry skin specially during Winter. There are many things that I could recommend such as: changing his food, running a humidifier, making sure he is drinking enough water, etc. to avoid dry skin, but do you know what? This is the one thing, above all, that will keep your dog from having dry skin: brushing him once a day, at least. Yes, that’s it! Brushing him once a day. Very simple.

Could you believe that I took this picture last Saturday while walking with Walter?
Today, Monday, certainly looks completely different from last Saturday. Does Walter look concern about it? Not really.
This is my backyard. The same backyard where Cynthia, a couple of days ago, BBQ. Isn’t it supposed to be Spring now? No, I am not complaining, but rather wondering about this crazy weather.
Years ago, I used to dread anytime the weatherman said we had snow coming. On my defense, I’d like to point out that for the first 15 years of my life I lived mostly in a tropical climate, close to the beach, and snow was nothing more to me than some pretty pictures on a book. Now, I actually appreciate every season of the year. Why? My girlfriend, Cynthia, and dogs have taught me to be appreciative of what each season brings to us.
Look at Alex. No care in the world. Just watching us specially when she hears that we open one of her bags full of treats.
Walter, another perfect specimen, of what relaxation should look like. I think the Greek philosopher, Diogenes, had the right idea. He believed that happiness was achieved by returning to nature, and what better way to keep in touch with nature than living with dogs.
