Shiny new boots

| | Comments (0)


Saturday proved to be too much fun for Hobie. A day of fetch and swimming at a Sonoma bbq on the weekend resulted in Hobie tearing his footpads. We didn't notice any bleeding, but they sure looked raw and uncomfortable. A pair of Old Navy baby socks were perfect and fit snugly and protected his paws indoors. We coupled that with a plastic bag and bandage tape to head outside. Not a good solution. We needed something more secure.

We tracked down a pair of Muttluks to keep his feet protected as they heal.

These boots are difficult to find in San Francisco. After calling about 7 pet stores that were open on a Sunday afternoon, only Pawtrero Hill Bathhouse and Feed carried the Muttluks.

The boots were not quite as durable as we thought. Parts of the leather bottoms were torn after 20 minutes of playing fetch in the grass. Hopefully they'll keep the water out when it starts raining.

The ghetto socks and tape combo, so not fashionable:

Stylin in his new Muttluks. Even the Harley biker at Starbucks agreed:
