Little boots




Remember the "boots" I mentioned that Tucker appears to wear?  Yep, had to get a photo of his little fringe "boots". 


You can see that darn rear dew claw on the far foot that Tucker will have removed when he gets...ssshhhhh....neutered.  Okay the boots.... look at that fringe of his.  Minnetonka Moccasin's never had it so hip as you can see here.






Here is a back view of his "boots" and also his big boy coat down his back and his tail.  Yes Tucker works for his keep by "rinsing" our dishes before we turn the dishwasher on.  He does a fine job too.  


Hi Tucker!  Something tasty there?

LOL. Chewy is a dishwasher lover too! I always tell him, "Chewy,the all you can eat buffet is open!" He practically climbs inside before I can slide out the racks.

Tucker's boots are adorable!

Sara....Oh Tucker has climbed up before I could pull out the racks fully! I like how you call it the buffet....cute.

Oh those are the cutest little boots! Mom had a Mastiff that used to ''help'' with the dishwasher too

Hi Ellen! Dachshund Nola's mommy here!
I started cooking for Nola when she was about 10 months old. Before that her skin was horribly dry, flakey and scabby and she itched constantly. Her behavior was also erratic. After a ton of research and one unnecessary and unpleasant skin scraping for Nola, I switched her to the highest quality corn/soy (her allergies) free food. But it got super pricy and her coat still wasn't to my liking.
I looked up what dogs really need, and what whole foods had those things and made several recipes. She LOVES it so do the other two, they are in perfect condition. Our vet says he has never seen such healthy dogs. Nola's coat is sleek and shiny, her behavior so much better her teeth clean and her body strong.
Nola (8 lbs) gets 1/2 cup in the morning and 1/4 cup at night. Auggie (12-14 lbs) gets half cup morning half cup night. Boston gets as much as she wants while she's nursing the babies but normally she gets as much as Auggie. I've increased Nola's food from half cup to 3/4 cup as she's getting much more exercise.
Hope this helps!

Hi Tucker, better to have fluffy boots than a fluffy bum (sshhh don't tell Stella I told you that hehehe) No worries, and slobber, Rory

If he were a horse I'd call them feathers. Very Clydesdale-esque. I too have a photo of a collie in a dishwasher, from Diva's puppy days. Collies are so eager to help, aren't they?

Yo Tucker, nice shots from every angle. I think your feathers are beautiful.

ANd the fact that you got away with licking the plates in the dish washer.....Nice Move

Beautiful boots - those boots are made for walking, and we hope Tucker gets lots of fun time walking those boots around:)

Happy Sunday.

Mommy's oldest niece is all into boots now. She is in middle school and that seems to be the fashionable thing to do. She was going to wear boots during the summer too - she says that's the style now.
