Since it’s “Less Words Wednesday,” I’ll try to keep this short. A little story about the furry kid.
It’s easy to make fun of doggie hiking boots- they’re a waste of money, they’ll give your dog a complex and so on. I was squarely in that camp too until on one hiking trip while we lived in AZ, this happened:
See that pitiful face? Part of his paw pads were ripped off from the terrain. Strangely enough, he’d been on that trail many times so we weren’t sure what the difference was. That trip to the vet cost about $400 for us and lots of misery for him.
From that point on, we decided “screw it!” Don’t care if people think we’re giving him a complex by embarrassing him with the dog boots. They finally made sense! So we bought the boots, kept hiking and instead of dirty looks, we got lots of laughs and fun comments. You gotta admit, they are kinda cute aren’t they?
