So, while I was out yesterday at Walmart picking up some things for the Christmas party here at work, I had to go check out the dog clothes, because that's just what I do. Anyway, I had previously bought Dinky (my little chihuahua for those who don't know) some little sock things for her to wear when it is cold outside. Only problem with those is that she won't let me put them on her. It is really a two person job, and the BF won't hold her down (lol) while I put them on. So I came across some little pink shoes for dogs. These simple close with Velcro, looks like something I could do without any help, so I bought them. When I hit the door home last night, first thing I did was whip out the shoes to put on her. I got one shoe on no problem! I set her down on the floor so I could take a look at it, and she scooted off to her little bed where she proceeded to prop her little foot up on the edge of her bed and WOULD NOT MOVE! Not even for treats! Here is what she looked like:

Of course by this time me and the BF were laughing our asses off. So after I can compose myself, I scoop her up and praise her and give her some treats. And then I put the next shoe on her other foot. She just stands completely still, she won't move, she doesn't even run back to her little bed. I try setting treats in a trail to entice her, still no luck. So I just snapped a couple more pics of her and took her little shoes off.

We are about to get snow this weekend and she really needs these little shoes for when I take her out. I think it's going to take a little getting used to. This weekend she might wear her little shoes for a longer period of time so she can used to the feel of them. I'm sure I will have my camera handy when I finally get all four on her little feet, because I am sure it will be a treat! lol I love this little baby - she bring so much joy to me it's crazy!

KATEE - These were the smallest ones that they had, these are xs. I'm telling you, you would die if you could have seen her last night!

Olga said...

Oh no! in the second one she seems to be about to cry, like saying "No mamma take these off"

You are a better mom than me, I know it's for her own good but i'd've taken those off in a second, can't resist The Power of the Dinky.

Whatever you say your Royal Dinkyness!!!

OLGA - you crack me up girl! You make me feel better though, at least I'm not the only one under Dinky's spell! lol

Adorable! My dogs did that too when I first put them in boots. But in sub-zero temps (like we're getting this week), it's just necessary (as are coats). Just wait until she figures out how warm they keep her feet in the snow...she'll get used to them soon enough. :-)

Brooke said...

JAMIE - Dang! sub-zero temps, where do you live at?? i'm gonna try and get her used to them around the house this weekend.

LYDIA - Dogs are so much fun aren't they?
