The dog boot saga continues with guide number 3
As I wrote in my blog post yesterday, I decided that I would never buy another pair or rather set of dgo boots again. It was too much trouble and too expensive. Then, I met Gia. My third guide dog and my first golden retriever. After two dogs who hated wearing coats or boots or anything but their working harnesses, I was astonished in class to find that Gia enjoyed wearing her rain coat. She modeled it. She pranced. She danced. She wagged. When I got her a winter coat (another story for another blog entry) she loved that too. So, I decided perhaps I should loosen my restrictions on dog boots. I bought her a pair. She tolerated them being put on better than the others. She walked in them well. But, still we lost them sometimes. Hear about a few of our spectacular boot adventures starting tomorrow!
