Am I stylish in my new boots or what? Now as some as you know I have a jippy left foot - it has bad arthritis in it that has caused my toes to splay. As a result when I go walkies my foot gets really sore because I am walking on the soft parts of my pad not the rough bits. Mom noticed I have a lot of trouble if the path has any gravel on it as those little stones dig into my paw and HURT. So after a lot or looking around Mom found me some orthopedic dog boots - yes orthopedic dog boots - they even have removable gel inner soles that also have odor eater properties too!!!!! Was Mom implying my feet smell????? The bottom of them is like a people sneaker so they give me good traction both indoors and out. They have cool reflective stripes on them on them too and are a mesh fabric so they "breathe". They felt a bit weird when I first put them on but when I realized I could walk on the road surface and not hurt my foot - I loved them!
Now something we didn't know until we started researching is - when you get orthopedic boots you need to have one on each front foot or one on each back foot - what ever is needed. The reason is because the shoes add a little height to my stand and if I only wore one boot I would be slightly off balance and that could hurt my other legs or back. Think about how weird it feels if you put on one shoe and walk around!!! So now I have me some boot made for walkin - looks out streets - here I come! Oh - Mom was sure I would wear them out pretty fast cause I love my walking so she got me an extra pair too.
