your dog has the coolest shoes

we know. we know.
that's what someone said to us a few days ago during our pinkberry run near where we live.

every time we take piri out in his blue shoes, he catches the attention of literally everyone. 
we get LOTS of smiles and comments like "omg! look! that dog has shoes on!", not to mention the questions. 

does he like it? {not sure - he hasn't really told us, but he doesn't throw a tantrum when we put them on so maybe he likes them?}
do they work well? {most definitely}
what kind are they? {pawz!}

we must've used so many different brands until we finally settled with pawz (because they hardly come off and are waterproof! it's literally all rubber that you slip on your pooch's paws). i had trouble putting them on and taking them off at first, especially when piri's fur was a bit longer on his legs, but got the hang of it quickly. 

piri did his little donkey walk at first when he first tried on shoes, but now he walks in them like they're not even there. 

piri loves to roam and smell the grass and who knows what he steps on. he also brings in a lot of things into the house - twigs, dirt, leaves.. cocker spaniel paws are so furry! so the shoes work for us all season long. 

so the next time you see a cocker spaniel in nifty blue booties, you just might be running into us!

xoxo,

  1. Clever! I'm not one for "dressing" your dog but if this solves the problem with the grass and he doesn't mind, it's great!

  2. I've wanted to try these especially with my basset hound in the snow. I love the blue I think hers are the big ones and would be red.

  3. Gosh, I just can't get enough of this little guy's sweetness! He's just so darn adorable Jane, he'd catch my attention even without the shoes ;)

  4. he is so cute with his blue dogs. some non dog owners don't realize the shoes really do serve a purpose, they protect those precious paws!

    1. yes! and piri is older too so his paws have been pretty battered over the years!

  5. He *does* have the cutest shoes! You have them in different colors? We don't use booties for our dogs, which is why they would never wear them ;). Glad Piri doesn't mind his!

  9. Piri is so adorable! I've been thinking of getting Stella shoes because one time I took her running 5 miles and we came back and her pads were scratched up. I felt so awful! I haven't taken her running that far since then, or I am mindful of taking her running on trails vice pavement or asphalt...-Jess L
