I saw owners with their dog earlier today. It was dressed. Seriously. It was wearing a sweater and shoes.
It’s very cold out so I understand the dog may need warmth, just like us. But on the flip side, it’s a dog, and dogs have fur coats. Also I realize that there’s ice on the ground so it may be slippery and the shoes may offer grip. I also seem to remember a dog being electrocuted in the city a few years back because of ice and a manhole cover. Or the salt and the manhole cover. In any case, if it is for safety’s sake, forgive me.
However, two things to note:
1 – Dogs have been walking for years in the ice and snow without shoes. Will this catch on?
2 – The pink shoes matched the pink sweater.

To some people a dog can be a simple companion, that they love and want to protect, even though they don’t need to.
