Anyway, thinking about that reminded me of one time when the hubs and I were in his homeland of Montreal, Canada in the winter. (Okay, it was the only time we were there in winter. As a So Cal girl, once in winter was kinda enough for me. We usually go in the fall now!) As we drove down the street, a woman was walking her Chihuahua, who was obviously not digging his winter boots. He was doing a really good John Cleese Ministry of Silly Walks imitation. This was long before everyone started carrying the potential for photos/videos around in their pockets, so I don't have a video to share, but this one captures the spirit of it:
Or this is pretty cute too:
So cute to watch a pup prance around trying to get used to his/her new boots.You could go on all day watching these on YouTube. (I mean, if you had a lot of time on your hands...) But whatever you do: don't read the comments. Lotta stupid people out there who seem to think these snow-booted pups are being tortured. Nope, just loving parents trying to save their pups' paws from the snow, ice and salt. (Oy. People.)
Luckily we live in a warm climate, so haven't had to put boots on our girls. (Or deal with people who think we might be torturing them.)
How about you? Do you have to put boots on your pups? Did they do the high-stepping kicks and Ministry of Silly Walks moves before they finally got used to them?
One more quick thing...
