My mom called me up this morning and asked if I knew where she could find some leather booties to put on her little pooch (pomeranian) to keep his feet from being burned in the Arizona summer heat. I told her that I didn't, but that I'd ask around and see what kinds of things are available.
Her bigger problem will be getting one that fits, especially if she's got a correct Pom with teeeeeeeeny feet. She may be better off using a newborn baby sock and putting puff paint on the bottom and fastening with a tiny strip of velcro or something.
I don't know whether it would protect enough--but I also know that putting shoes on a Pom can be difficult. They have such a tiny paw, and it's almost as wide as the leg (with all the hair it should actually be smaller than the leg, but you can squish the hair a little). She'll need to find a shoe that's more like a column than a "shoe."
Thank you so much guys--I've been looking around and I have to agree, the pom has tiny little feetsies and I'm sure my mom is going to have a tough time keeping them on him using anything short of super-glue, not that I would consider that an option...
