How To Prevent Dry Skin On Your Dog

wp feb 18 2019

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.

Snowing On A Monday Morning

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.

snow4Years 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.
