Since I needed to order some stuff for Soth from Chewy.com, I tossed a package of Pawz in the cart, too.
I figured we could work on training her to let me put things on her paws while we waited for their arrival. By that, I mean I stuck one of my little ankle socks on her front paw--and when she didn't protest, I gave her a lot of treats and decided not to jinx it by going any farther.
|Why are you doing this to me?|
Two days later, some nice purple Pawz were waiting on the front porch when I got home.
|Hurry up and open this, Mom! I think there's something in there for me.|
|This isn't exactly what I had in mind.|
I had no idea that something so small could provide so much laughter.
Inside, Barley was literally hopping through the house. I tried to take a video, but I was laughing so hard that I couldn't keep the camera on her and I couldn't keep from cackling in the background; it was not attractive.
|I told you I couldn't keep the camera still--but look at that leg kick!|
Since we got the the Pawz a week ago, we've gotten in several nice long walks we wouldn't have been able to take otherwise.
Barley's mischievous side is coming out now and she's starting to be more resistant to putting them on, though. No matter how many treats I offer, she hides. I can usually get two on. Then she runs under the dining room table. Even if I put a treat on the ground between us, she won't come out for it. So, putting the boots on is starting to take significantly longer than either of us would like. Once we get outside, she's still fine, but I have no idea if we'll be able to continue getting them on for much longer--so I guess we'll start over with trying to train putting them on in the summer so that next winter doesn't become this much of a wrestling match.
What accessories/gear have provided you and your pets with the most laughter and joy?
