(VIDEO) Just For Fun: Watch Barkley Walk In His New Winter Boots.
I can't believe I'm already writing another dog post but I really wanted to share this video. After a very cold January, we decided it was time to get Barkley a proper pair of boots. For the past few weeks, he has absolutely HATED his walks and between the ice and the salt irritating his paws, we've barely been able to make it around the block.
People with greyhounds know how hard it is to find pet clothes that fit properly. They're just sooo tall and skinny but this means that they also need clothes desperately in cold climates! We have actually found a great online shop that makes custom, breed specific clothes for all seasons. Since I work by referral, I am always very conscious of referring other business owners who offer an exceptional product or service. We buy all our dog clothes (and now boots) from Voyagers K9 Apparel and we find that the clothing fits well, is easy to put on and remove and comes with lots of little details like a hole for the leash, reflectors for nights walks, good traction and double straps on the boots, etc. In this video, Barkley is wearing his new boots and tummy warmer but he also owns a rain coat and a winter coat.
Anyway, we know we're not the first people to have this idea but we thought it would be hilarious to film Barkley's first walk in boots. As you can imagine, it was pretty funny. Don't worry folks, he's already much better at walking in them and he doesn't seem to mind them at all. Enjoy!
