A couple of days ago, Megan (aka Mrs. Guinea Pig!) posted about her sister’s cute dog and her awesome (um, somewhat shark-like?) cats. She made a neat video of her cats “foraging” for food, which is a kitty entertainment and weight loss technique that we often suggest to people at the cat-only hospital where I work. It’s awesome to see it in action; it seems to really work!
Anyway, Megan’s cool video inspired me to try to use the iMovie on my computer, which I never really considered before. Here is my choppy video, which is not very high quality but is high entertainment (for me, at least). Warning: the language in the music is not safe for work or for children, so either mute it or just consider yourself warned.
Some background: The first winter I had Daphne, she did not adjust very well. Her paws cracked and bled in the snow, leaving a trail of little bloody specks everywhere she went, and she spent a lot of time shivering. That said, she loved playing in the snow.
Solution? Dog booties and, of course, a jacket. She adapted pretty well to the booties, and we’ve had to use them a couple of times since then when she cut her paws (on glass once, on rocks another time) and we needed to keep them clean and dry.
The jacket? Well, it did not go over so well:
A few months later, we tried a t-shirt…
She did much better then, but maybe because she appreciates higher education.
Anyone else clothing their dog? Anyone else embarrassed about it? I have to say, we got a lot of flack for our dog booties at the dog park…
