That's Better!

Well, I gave the boots and jacket another whirl and guess what?  It wasn't so bad.  The jacket kept me warm and dry, and the boots kept my sensitive paws from getting scratched up in the icy, crusty snow!!  Success!  Of course, this walk was just with Mom and Dad, so I have not tested the boots with my furiends again yet.  Mom said these boots weren't really designed for snow, but she and Dad seem to have misplaced my boots they got me last year which were better for snow.  Mom thinks that snow boots should have the stretchy material that goes further up the legs to keep the cold stuff from getting inside.  Oh well, these should work for now and they should be great for hiking in rough, rocky areas this summer.  Thanks so much to all of those doggies who gave suggestions!  I even made a new furiend because of the suggestions.  Brutus the Frenchie got these cool little shoes called PAWZ...check out his blog for the details if you haven't already!  Don't know if they would work for my big paws, but right now I think I will stick with these boots as they seem to do the trick as long as I can keep them on when playing with my rowdy furiends.  I'm not rowdy, it's them ya know. ;)

You look much more natural and comfortable. Those little rubber boots look cool too, but these might outlast them.

Hi my twin!
How are you doing? I have missed you so much and I am sorry I have not been by in a long time.
I love your new coat (Canadian like me!) and boots. I was so sad to see your sore paws in a previous post. :(
I hope your mom's tooth is feeling all better. My dad had to get two of those implant things too.
Thanks for still visiting my blog while I have been away.

Nala, did my Mommy ever write back to you about my Boots... She tells me she swears she did, but I don't see a comment or an outgoing email in her box...

Nala - you're looking very stylish! The only problem you could possibly have meeting pals in that get-up is them being jealous of how sharp you're looking! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.
