Do you like my new boots?
They really are quite spiffy, don't you think?
The boots are, Gail says, the latest weapon in our ongoing battle with the horrid interdigital cysts which now and then erupt quite painfully on my front paws, especially in the winter months.
Now I want to make it quite clear that there is absolutely nothing babyish or soft about wearing these 'Proff Shoes' (size 3) from Rukka Pets. They are advertised as worn by border patrol dogs on active service in Finland. And if they're good enough to sport when defending Scandinavia against invading Russkies, then they're good enough for a roughty-toughty terrier in Scotland, don't you think?
I admit I was a bit hesitant at first, but soon got the hang of the new footwear, and I must say it was nice last weekend to have a layer of rubber between my sensitive paws and the late winter snow.
