Stepping out in style...

Mom showed you all my new orthopedic boots I got last week and I have been wearing them every day since when we go for walks.  I can not believe how good these make my feet feel and Mom says I have a bounce back in my step again and I am actually trotting again.

These past few days we have been going for walkies around our neighborhood ...... something we had stopped because because to rough road surface really hurt my foot.  But since Mom  freaked out about ticks after our last episode at the park she decided it just wasn't safe to go on the grass at the park anymore and we had to figure out some way to get my exercise.

So she started hunting for boots for me. We went to the local pet stores and didn't find anything that would really do the job but we did get to try some on so we had an idea about sizing. Then Dad got in on the hunt and found out about NeoPaws Orthopedic Dog Boots. They had to come all the way from Canada.

What surprised Mom is how quickly I got use to them - Sure I did the funny 'duck' walk when she first put them on - but we walked down to the mail box and back a few times and I was hooked. Mom says she is amazed by the difference they have made. I can walk on the road and not limp anymore....I actually have my gait back and even trot nicely along with them. And dog oh dog did I have fun when I saw another dog on MY street - I stamped by booted feets at him and they made a pawsome noise - it scared him!!!!

 Yes...I am steppin out in style now!!!!!!!!!


  1. ROFL - I can just picture you scaring that dog with your boots!

    I never knew about these boots, I will have to keep them in mind in case Holly or Abby develop any problems as they get older.

  2. Aww....I can see you stampin...away!!
    Those boots are made for walking and thats just what you are gonna do!!
    Have fun.

    Chewy has a pair of neopaws too, but his are the sneaker style. I keep them on hand for when he cuts his pads.

  11. Nice moves! I like the way you swagger! You are definitely ready for the speed walking the next time the Olympics come to town!

  12. That is just wonderful, Reilly. Mom says one day she may have to try to get Phantom to wear boots in the house because he is always sliding around so much.

    Happy walking.
