Recently, I read on our vet's website that the salt they use to de-ice (defrost?) the roads and sidewalks can be harmful for dog paws. I'm guessing we will be seeing a lot of salt in the next few months. Am I being ridiculous?
Against TG's wishes, I have started the hunt for dog shoes and coats. If they need winter gear, you can bet it is going to be cute. I don't really think Barkley needs a coat but I saw Chip shivering the other morning and felt bad for his short-haired self.
Here's what I'm thinking:
....They look silly, but it's really more about function.
At least Barkley & Chip aren't going to be subject to the humiliation that these would surely bring...
They also have disposable ones. Have you ever tried dog shoes (either kind)?
This coat is from Land's End. I like this option because it's not too frou frou looking but will keep the pups warm and dry when things turn ugly here.
Then of course, there's always this too. Just kidding.
