Dog Shoes

(No, the banner image above is completely irrelevant. BUT DON’T THEY LOOK COOL? If you enjoy imagining yourself stepping on a dead puppy with each step you take, I mean.)

Tired of wiping Porter’s feet every time he enters, I decided to make some shoes out of plastic bags and rubber bands as a late Thanksgiving present. While he may not have enjoyed them, my family thoroughly enjoyed watching him waddle legs lifted high like a constipated hurdler. Not the smartest dog.

When going on a walk, the slippery shoes also made it much easier to drag him away from stopping every 15 seconds to smell other dogs’ pee stains.
