The Dry Nose: Vancouver, BC

category: Dogs • 1 min read

Brutus is a Dogue de Bordeaux. He’s huge, he’s around 140lbs. Nothing really scares him.

His owner is a lady and to me she looks like she’s in her thirties. She said that now with Brutus, nobody bothers her when she goes on her walks, especially at night (except for people like me and we talk dogs)!

Dogue de Bordeaux with dry nose

Brutus, a huge Dogue de Bordeaux — Vancouver, BC

But look at his nose, it’s all dried up and it hurts. He gets cream daily to help but it’s not very successful.

Upon reflection, I’m wondering if the name Brutus is from Julius Cesar’s assassin or from Popeye’s rival Bluto/Brutus…
