    sorry but that statement is just plain ignorant. paw pads have to be conditioned to hold up to abrasion and sometimes protective booties are necessary, for example for search and rescue dogs who work in all kinds of debris.

    just because a dog has paw pads doesn't mean they are suitable to walk/run on hot/hard/rough surfaces for an unlimited amount of time.

    as for dressing up dogs - nah, i don't like it either, but it's generally harmless and i'd rather someone dress up their dog than keep it pened or chained it in the back yard.

    Are you kidding? I LOVE dressing my dogs up. I think it is adorable. I have a pic of Precious where she had on a bandanna print t-shirt, soooo cute. I have never dressed Spud up, but I have seen little Rugby shirts that I would love to get for him. Roxy has two sweaters. One she has grown out of, so it has been retired to Gracie Lou, though she despised wearing it the one time I put it on her :rolleyes:. Roxy Mae has to have a sweater. In Alabama, it is so hot that our AC is always on, and sometimes it gets too cold for her in the house and I have to put her sweater on.
    But to answer the ?, I love dog clothes. (What do you expect. I am a "pet stylist!"LOL)

    I believe this is what is called a non-sequiter?? Meaning one thing has nothing to do with the other, roflmbo. Now, people taking their dogs out for brisk walks instead of penning or chaining would be more like it!

    And you are right.........dog feet are every bit as sensitive as our feet. And when it comes to such things as blistering heat, or as in my case when in New York, ROCK SALT, protection for the feet is vital. A dog is lost when one of its feet is messed up!!!

    in that case...should i get some booties for oakley?

    It gets snowy here in MI...we did adopt oakley in the winter, and never had any hurt feet...but hmm, i think i may get some for him...i was always worried he might lick the salt off his feet...but i never thought about it hurting them :(

    I'm pretty sure Sawyer would chew off any clothes I put on him, including a bandana. I am going to get a picture of him in a cape though. He likes to lay in such a way that it looks like he's flying. Sawyer the Super Dog!
