Booties for the puppy

Posted January 26, 2013 By Ruth

We had horribly cold temps this week.  I’ve dealt with worse, but that doesn’t make it fun.  Overnights well below zero, and only warming up to the single digits.  Both dogs get Musher’s Secret on their paws regularly in the winter, but even with that the single digits and colder proved to be to much for Arty.  Less than 5 minutes outside and he was trying to pick up all his feet at once to warm them up, the result was the highly pitiful sight of him falling over in the snow and crying cause his feet hurt.  Made worse because he WANTED to go out, and otherwise didn’t seem bothered by the temps.

Needless to say that doesn’t work well.  So off to the locally owned petstore to buy booties for him.  He’s still not to sure about these things being put on his feet, but they do help keep his feet from freezing so badly.  At least I’m not forced to carry him back in after barely 3 minutes!

Apollo of course is oblivious, and can’t figure out why Arty’s having such problems….
