Teddy - four boots

At home

It was so snowy today that I thought it best to put all four of Teddy's boots on his paws to
prevent painful snowballs building up on his feet. He has got used to using one boot over the
past couple of months since he injured one foot and I was amazed to see after we got home from
our walk and crazy run around in the park today, that he still had four boots in place!!
They are pretty good boots, Ultra Paws, with two Velcro straps to hold them quite securely.

They look very similar to the muttluks that our 3 wear. I remember the first time they wore them and they were running at the conservation area and Rick and I watched their boots go flying through the air (since than we secure them a tighter).

I did think this was two people. I can't believe he keeps these on.

Well having had to deal with the problem of nasty ice balls in dogs feet, I think this is a great idea. Good for Teddy and good for you Tricia....

I'm with Randy Adams, Tricia. That's definitely you and Sayer! You can't fool us.

Wow, nice boots! I would have needed those for my old golden retriever, Lillis. Her paws always cracked up because of the roadsalt.
Bonnie doesn´t (luckily) have those problems, but I keep her paws hairfree so the ice doesn´t get stuck.. But she is ticklish so she doesn´t like the procedure ;o)

Fantastic !!! Oddly though, I need them for Eric and Robbie in the UK at the moment too.

Are you sure that's not you and Sayer in your long furry underwear?!

LOL Trica! Love them on Teddy. I got some for Scottie a long time ago. He went outside by himself and the first time he went out with them on I had to go out and dig them out of the snow and one I didn't even find until the snow thawed.
