A West Highland White Terrier, or Westie, is a popular dog breed for many people. Westies are a smart, confident and courageous breed with a double coat of coarse, thick pure white fur, grooming (which includes brushing and clipping your Westie’s nails) is an integral part of keeping a Westie happy and healthy.
A happy dog is a healthy dog, and a healthy dog has strong, shiny fur. Your dog’s coat is one of the best indicators of his or her health – be it physical or emotional. A healthy coat should be shiny and smooth, not brittle or coarse. Health and nutrition influence the lustre and texture of your pet’s coat from the inside, regular grooming and skin care on the outside will help keep your dog’s coat clean and free of tangles.
As the weather gets colder and the evenings get darker, there is nothing more comforting than that warm feeling of a crackling bonfire. And nothing more awe-inspiring than the glow of fireworks in the autumn night sky.
If you are getting excited about this time of year, you are definitely not alone, but do not forget that fireworks may frighten your pets!
