This is my dog Bill.
We all went hiking out in the desert to take some pictures of the blood moon the other weekend, and unfortunately Bill's paws got completely stuck with thorns (my little dog stays next to me, so she was fine). So rather than have Bill constantly be in pain from thorns, rocks, heat or any other possible debris, I decided to get him some doggy hiking boots. They protect his pad from all of the above. The only issue is they take a little bit of getting used to! So this is his first time wearing the back ones (he wore just the front for about an hour prior). Now he can go explore and be a dog, but have his paws protected from the dangers of the desert.
And he did get the treat, FYI! I just turned the camera off to give it to him.
UPDATE: I took him for a long walk the other day and he was happily running along just fine in his boots.
**NOTICE: I am not interested in licensing out my video. That being said, Bill is a product of a Petsmart adoption event hosted by a local shelter. If you like this video, and want to see more of them, then please check out www.petsmartcharities.org/
and donate, or even go help out at your local shelter. Not only will you be helping other animals get a home where they can have silly boots put on them, but you may find yourself a new friend as well :)
PS: His name is Bill, because my name is Ted. We do have excellent adventures.
