On the Tenth Day of Christmas: My New Raincoat and a New Challenge

Tenth Day 1 thek9harperlee

And on the tenth day of Christmas . . . I took my new rainy-day style to the streets. You might recall that last week we had lots and lots and lots of rain and I had a little difficulty finding a raincoat to fit my extra-extra-long body. Well, friends, the soggy weather has returned, but fortunately my new raincoat arrived in the mail a few days ahead of the first raindrop. So just before dark, I slipped into my new dog boots, snapped up my new raincoat, and headed out for a brisk walk.

I absolutely adore my new raincoat. It’s lightweight and fits perfectly. Best of all, it looks nice with my new dog boots . . . which I am also starting to love. So bring on the rain, Mother Nature. I have what it takes to weather your storms.

On the Fourth Day Of Christmas: My First Pair of Boots

Fourth Day 1 thek9harperlee

And on the fourth day of Christmas . . . the rain continued, so my humans decided that it was time for me to get my first pair of waterproof dog boots. They are called Pawz, made by Top Paw, and I am still a bit undecided. My fabulous Golden friend Sugar wears Pawz year-round to protect her beautiful feet. (You can click here to read all about Sugar and her famous Pawz.) I figure if Sugar likes them then they must be good. The fact that they are purple is a plus, too. Purple is my favorite color.

My new boots took a little getting used to. My humans started by putting just one boot on one foot. At first, I didn’t want to move. And then I didn’t want to put the booted foot on the ground. Then I got used to one boot, so the humans tried them on all four feet. Walking was a bit tricky at first, but I got the hang of it. Then I wouldn’t sit down with my boots on, but eventually I sat. I even went outside to . . . well, you know . . . wearing my Pawz. And finally I gave in completely and wore the boots to my bed to lie down. That’s when, mercifully, my humans removed the boots and said that we’ll try them again tomorrow. While I’m not completely averse to wearing my new waterproof boots, I do I have my toes crossed for brilliantly sunny skies and dry ground tomorrow. A girl can dream.
