The snow’s not even here yet, but already, my paws are getting cold when I go for walks. I hate it. When the snow is full blown, I usually hop around on one front leg to keep the other one warm. My humans have lots of stylish and warm clothes for their feet! What about us dogs?

Have you ever heard of dog booties? They’re something you should earnestly look into. Next time your owner takes you to a pet retail store like Petco, lead the way and sniff out those booties! Your owner can also look for booties at an online pet store or type in a keyword in a search engine like Google or Yahoo. Booties are a worthy investment. They’ll not only keep your feet warmer but cleaner. Think of all the salt that is thrown out on city sidewalks and streets, which can cause an infection if it gets in your paws. There’s also oil and gasoline leftovers from cars and other vehicles, which you don’t want on your feet or in your master’s house. Your owner would be wise and thankful for having boots for cleanliness purposes alone.
