Missing Boot Found in Snow Bank!

This is an update to my story titles “Walking in Boots in my Dog Run! Muttluk Dog Booties? Cool.”   In the story I wrote: “These Boots were made for Walk’in and that’s just what I’ll do’ tra la la– in them.  Well, I did until I was wearing the Red Boots, and I lost my precious dog boot. It came off in the snow along the road as I was looking for a place to empty my bladder.  All of a sudden a city snowplow turned the corner and buried it under a huge splash of snow. No matter, I winked at him and he understood that we would look for it when the snow melts.  How do you like that?”

Well, my little snow truck trick did not work.  The temperature went up and he went back to look for it.  He found my missing boot in the snow pile next to the road.  He never likes to waste anything. 

It was frozen in solid like a lead filled snowshoe, and my Mr. had to chip it out with a pick.  He chipped and chipped and finally it came out as you can see below.  It was frozen solid with ice all around.  It was crumpled up and would not move open.  There was no way to put that one on me!

Well, so much for trying to get rid of it.

He took it home, thawed it out and then washed them, all of them!  My next plan is to wear out the toes on these Red Boots by dragging my feet on the street. I have a long gate so no one will notice.  I have already made it through the black layer and the red is showing from underneath.  So, there is not much more to go before I get to wear my yellow Muttluks all the time!

The Muttluk Boots will last a long time.  They have leather toes that are thick and strong.  I know these will last.  They cost him more, but they are worth it.  Who wants to break in new boots each week, I don’t.  He found the Muttluk on the manufacture’s web site http://www.muttluks.com/our_products/muttluks.php.   They have a sizing chart he print out so he could size my feet up to their available sizes.  Next, he went shopping and found a web site that had them in stock for me.  KV Vet Supply had them and other cool stuff.  Here is the KV Vet Supply web site:

Like love my yellow Muttluks!  They keep the rock salt off my feet and from between my pads and toes.   I don’t like the salt, it make me sick.  The other day we walked on the street and when we returned he took off my training collar and let me Run and Run in the Dog Run. I loved it.  We have had so much snow becasue I have cabin fever.

What do you think of the yellow/black color combination and the reflective Velcro straps that holds them on around my ankles?  Don’t I look hip in my Muttluks?  Please let me know your comments, OK?

Oh, by the way, my Muttluks are not yellow because I stepped in yellow snow.  I would never do that.  Why, because he has sung the lyrics of the song on the Frank Zappa Apostrophe (’) album to me.   Have you heard the song, “Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow” by Frank Zappa?  Frankie details some very wise advice in musical form regarding yellow snow.   It is a classic.  I like it.   Check it out at the YouTube link below.  It is the full music track from Side One of Frank Zappa aprostrophe (’) starting with the song I like the best followed by on through to Cosmic Debris.  Check the animated (I like animals) video on YouTube too.
