Booba's New Shoes

(YouTube link)

A few days ago, Allie Brosch described in detail the confusion her dogs went through when wearing their first shoes. So you can witness that sort of thing yourself, here is Booba, a presumably normal Shi Tzu wearing his new yellow shoes. He doesn't appear to be accustomed to wearing shoes. -via Buzzfeed

I'm guessing it was a practice run for when Booba goes out, wearing his new boots, for the first time? I reckon it's cruelty only if he knows the internets are giggling...

There are gels for doggy paws, that supposedly create a shield against salt. Don't know how well they work tho.

I don't understand why people think this is cruel in any way shape or form. So what, the dog is walking funny b/c of some shoes on its feet. The pup is unsure and hesitant, and no doesn't like the shoes but cruel? Abusive? REALLY??
Learn what real animal abuse & cruelty is before spewing off that nonsense.

This is harmless.

We used a product called Pawz I believe with our beagle when he got confused with regular boots. They're incredibly simple tough rubber similar to balloons in effect but don't cause the pads to feel like there's anything there. The reason Booba looks so confused is that he's convinced there's ground on his feet when he lifts his paws.

And for those stating that boots on paws is animal cruelty, you've never had to lift and carry your poor dog home when salt or ice have gotten between their pads. Our beagle much preferred romping through the snowy streets wearing boots to limping along with ice packed in his pads. Or are you suggesting that owners not take dogs out when it snows?

Exceptional cases apart (thank you, O) I think this is the perfect example of why you should NOT put boots on a dog. It's just plain cruel. That poor animal doesn't know what hit him, or where to go. There is no value in putting that creature through this. Shame on Neato for profiling it.

Nature has already provided dogs with shoes.....ever look at their paws? pure animal cruelty. shame on you for being entertained by some poor animal that doesn't like what its clueless owner does to it.
