Ries is darling, it looks like you have gotten all the answer you need :0)

If the nose gets cracked and dry,(winter, furnace heat, ) we use baby oil gel just a dab, but from his photo, he looks just fine...

Half of Diesels nose is "normal" but his top half (or where he doesnt seem to ever lick) Is super dry. Doesnt seem to bother him. What does seem to bother him, is when we try to put stuff on it for him, like vaseline, or any lotion, then he wont stop trying to lick it off.

Ditto w/ my boy Damien! I joke that Jasmine's tongue can reach the top of her head if she tried 8O her nose is always wet!

It is normal. Every dog is born with a different nose shape, color, and wetness of their nose. There are also some dogs with naturally oily skin so their nose is always oily. You haven't mentioned the age of your dog. For example, in the case of newborns and young dogs, it is normal especially when they eat something. After they get old, they will have more natural dryness than wetness on their nose. if you want some remedy, you can use dog moisturizer or Dry Dog Nose Balm From Puppington.
