The first day was great- the dogs were nuts about it! But then it snowed again.
And again. And again. It has snowed every day this week. Thank you, Mother Nature. Wish granted. Please stop.
Today was cold and blustery, with lots of white flakes falling from the sky. I recently purchased some great coats that fit Parker and Skye really well, which they have been wearing on our walks. Skye normally opposes all clothing and I used to agree with her. But Parker is King of the Dingleberries, and anything below freezing sends Skye into convulsions- so we adjusted.
Our walk today taught me a few things. First- Parker may need booties. I keep his legs and feet cut short in the winter to prevent them from getting so covered in ice that they stick together (which has happened). But he still only made it 30 minutes before he was walking on ice balls.
Skye wore her pink hoodie with the new coat over that with minimal argument and no shivering! So she seems to be all set, but Parker still needs help.
Do your dogs were clothes? Why? Anyone used booties before? He hates having his feet handled, so I'm expecting some protest, but it would be worth it if I don't have to carry him back to the car!
