These Boots

Are made for standin’

And that’s what I’ma gonna do

Are you ready boots? Start walkin’!

Toby here: I’ve had lots of trouble keeping those back legs under me here lately. Wood floors are just too slippery and even though Mom put some rugs down in a few spots in the kitchen, I was still sliding down. The old legs just aren’t what they used to be.

Then she put these boots on my back feet and things are much easier again. You know, it’s the simple things now-a-days that make my life better. Like Sage checking out my boots (are you jealous, Sage?)

Or, when she licks my ear.

She’s my pal!

  2. tres cool! i’m so happy for you Toby! Mr T could really have done with some of those non-slip boots. [He had other ones.] My Typist is awww-ing a lot at your pictures today. she particularly likes the last 2. what a sopwit.

    p.s. she says to tell your mama they got some rubber matting from a shop here called Clarks Rubber that they cut to size for the room and it helped Mr T a lot! i don’t know if you have something like that where you are.

    hooroo! x


  3. Mr. Toby, thanks for telling us about your speshul boots! Mom has noticed that my brudder Dillon occasionally has some trouble with sliding around in the kitchen, and it’s great to know that there is something that can help. And they are so snazzy-looking, too! Miss Sage, I take care of Dillon’s ears too! I sure like your photos here πŸ™‚


  4. That’s a great idea. We have shiny floors too and I used to skid a lot when I was younger. My kitten Barnaby is always skidding and sliding but it’s his fault – he always moves at break neck speed!


  5. Ah, you two are such good pals πŸ™‚

    Those boots look a bit like my boots – I say my boots, but I’m still refusing to wear them….. Tee Hee – Glad they’re helping you with those slippery floors though buddy πŸ™‚

    Have a fun weekend,

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚


  6. Great boots and good idea! I’m happy they help not to slip on the wooden floor! I had to use those when I liked too much my toes and they were ill. x Nero


  7. Sweet Toby we are so happy for you that your mom thought of the boots and they are helping you to walk again. We can tell that sweet Sage is happy for you too and loves you. Happy walking sweet Toby! hugs and nose kisses


  8. Hi Sage! We have send to you special wishes and thanks today! We are so sorry that we didn’t have time when you gave to us the ‘Kreativ Blogger Award’. We do appreciate that you like our blog and give attention to our work! Big hugs and lots of kisses! xxx Teje & Nero


  9. Hi Sage and Toby! My name is “HERO” and my Mom just let me start my very own blog. Well, I have to share it with Bella (the English Shepherd) and Sable (the Livestock Guardian Dog) but it’s really mostly mine! I’m putting a list of my favorite blogs on mine and I’m gonna put YOUR blog on there so all my new friends can read all about you too!

    I had a friend, that my Mom rescued, that had a bad sore on her foot. She’s been adopted now but Mom’s going to send this blog post to Jazz’s new Mom to see if she might want to get Jazz some boots like yours…

    Looking forward to getting to know you!

    Your new Friend,


    P.S. Sage ~ I think you are VERY pretty!


  10. Super cool boots, Toby! Nothing better than when something functional looks good, too!

    Love the pics of you and Sage together – you two are the sweetest pals!

  11. That’s super awesome! I’ve noticed Sampson slip once or twice but I can’t be sure what it’s from. It’s good to know that option is available. I’m sure it can’t feel great when you slip, enjoy your new booties!!


  12. Hi Sage, doesn’t Toby look all spiffy in those new boots! We tried something like them on our old Beau but he was pretty clumsy with them. Nice to have options to help keep you dogs safe.

    That last picture is so adorable!
