Red face OUCH!!snow in pads +5 below hurts!!!

Boy am I feeling like a bad Mom this morning, took my Walter for his morning walk only to have him start limping after just a few minutes into the walk. It was so cold that the snow packed between his little tender puppy pads and hurt him. Dummy me, I have never walked a dog in snow before and did not realize how it could hurt him. Yesterday it was warmer when we walked and Walter loved every minute of it but I should have known better than taking him in sub zero 5 degrees below. He is fine now, pulled all the frozen snow from between his pads and gave him his favotite treat. I have in the past laughed at seeing doggie foot wear but you can bet I am ordering my boy some snow shoes TODAY. For anyone of you that didn't know like me, snow hurts, don't make the same mistake I did.

Poor Walter, snow and ice crystals packed into his little paw pads is no fun at all! There are two current threads about "winterizing" poodles that might be of interest.

Also don't wait! I only just starting thinking about getting muttluks and the SIZES are selling out so fast! I missed mine on the coat, I think I might just order a larger size and hope he grows!!

I noticed that Art Knapps (big, beautiful plant nursery here) is advertising "Puggs", they're Uggs for dogs. How cute! If we ever need them I'm getting Puggs!

Sorry if I am repeating myself (I am sure I posted this in the snowlumps thread). We had snow and freezing rain and so I put a coat and Mutluks on my standard poodle and took him to the park. He had a terrific time despite the snow being very very crusty! Last winter I had him out in similar snow conditions and someone pointed out that the tops of his toes were bleeding. They were all scraped up. The Mutluks did the trick although I had to check them once to ensure they were snug.

Ok these are the booties I used for my girls. Didn't matter how cold or wet it was out in the Alaskan winter their tootsies were always warm and dry. The toe area is the only part that wears out and you just get another pair:

Puggs, how funny. But seriously do put your order in fast. These kinds of things do sell out.
