warming trend - dogs losing their boots

By: bawlf , 2:06 PM GMT on February 06, 2014

-24.7 C (-12.46 F) with a 9.3 kmh wind. It feels like -32 C. Sunrise 8:11 AM, sunset 5:28 PM.

Daytime Forecast: Sunny. High -10C. Winds WSW at 15 to 25 kmh.

Nightime Forecast: Mostly clear. Low -23C. Winds NW at 10 to 15 kmh.

Does anybody out there have problems with winter dog boots coming off during walks? This problem is starting to run into a few bucks keeping the pooches in bootches! Yesterday I had, what I thought, Simba's boots on at a comfortable level of tightness - loose enough that she wouldn't be in pain and want them off and tight enough that they wouldn't fall off. Well, she lost one and I back tracked for 1/2 the circuit and still couldn't find them. I was speaking to an exhibitor at a liquor store recently who said that 'onesies' would be the solution for this as the dog would not be able to lose a boot. I was not able to source a retailer for winter onesies. A onsies is like a kids pyjamas that has the shoe sewn right in as part of each leg of the garment. Will have to keep looking for them.

Good evening
When I take Abbey for our walk I always try to find a route that will keep the wind at my back on the long open stretches.
Abbey doesn't care what t the weathers like She just wants to get out.
Wind: W 25 km/h
Windchill: -26

It's cold out there now.
Have a good day .
