AND according to the “stuff” I read, “The Dog is the most likeable sign in the Chinese zodiac” so, I’m pretty much loved by everyone. (wink)

It also says the Dog and Horse are compatible, which is a good thing ’cause I am married to a horse! Yet, his personality doesn’t match that of the Chinese Horse, so go figure.

    than others. Allergies can be extremely difficult to pin-point because your pup is probably eating lots of different things and
    neither you nor your Vet will be able to point out which one is causing the reaction at first glance.

    or improving the problem, you should seek advice from a dermatologist or
    skin care professional. When the synthesis of this protein is slowed down (which is caused by the aging), the skin becomes “sluggish”.
