After the first round of snow blanketed Kansas City, I suited up Luke and Charlie Machete in their winter weather gear.
Due to his propensity to get ice balls stuck between his toes, I recently began putting boots on Luke during snowy walks.
As with most things, the golden retriever tolerates the boots. And as long as they stay on, they do keep his feet dry and clean. Sadly, he lost one boot in deep snow five minutes after this video was taken.
Pro tip: Dog boots are not so good for trudging new paths through snow drifts.
This was first time I ever managed to get boots on Charlie Machete. He seemed so uncomfortable, however, that I did not make him wear them out of the house.
I am pretty sure if I had, a certain snide little elderpin would have never let the black lab mix live it down.
