Doggie Boots

I've always thought it was a little silly to "dress" the dog. I still do. Let's face it, when you have a fur coat like mine, clothes are really not necessary. I'm not even going to mention how insulting it can be for a canine to walk around dressed like humans. However, dog boots are a must have in a place where ice and snow meet dirt and salt.

When my mom first got the boots I thought no way am I ever going to let her put those on me. I tried for a couple of minutes to get them off, but once I started walking in them, I was fine. As soon as I stepped outside and figured out that my feet where going to be dry and toasty, I've had no problem putting on the boots again.

For anyone considering a pair, spend the extra dollar and buy Muttluks, they are well worth it. I lost a couple of boots from cheaper pairs and then my mom got smart and spent the extra buck. They have stockings that go further up the legs which holds them in place better. The soles are leather and the inside is lined which makes for an all-around higher quality boot and a comfy fit.

Yours truly stylin' in the snow boots. I know, too hot for words!

A dog is not 'almost human,' and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
