Torrey has a new pair of dog moccasins – Thursday thoughts with Torrey
What happens when your mom decides you need some shoes to walk in the desert? You know, to protect against cactus and poky rocks. And what happens if your mom creates stuff with leather, and decides she can just make you some shoes? Some shoes that will actually stay on your feet, and aren’t loose and hard to get around in.
This, my friends, is what happens.
Yep, I have my very own pair, or pairs, of dog moccasins. What do you think?
I tried a pair of bootie type shoe things before. But they would not stay on my feet, and I walked like a weirdo until they finally fell off. Mom decided that since I have gotten a couple of cactus spines in my paws, that she could make some shoes that would stay on, and actually be useful, And cute.
Ta da…….dog moccasins.
So far, they are great. I can walk really easy in them and because they have the leather tie, mom can tighten them and they don’t fall off. The bottom is two pieces of leather, with one of them being a little thicker to protect my paws.
I haven’t used them a lot yet, but I have high hopes for when we go back to Quartzsite. The rocks there are kinda rough in some places, and there is definitely more cactus to get in my paws. Auntie Shannon thinks I need to have them beaded too, I don’t think that’s going to happen though. BOL.
Update- I have had several people email about ordering the moccasins. While I would love to make these, I can’t in all good conscience sell them. They proved to be difficult to keep on Torrey’s feet, and they aren’t the easiest thing to get on either. Thanks for checking them out. I would recommend these boots from Ruffwear for any dog that needs foot protection.
