Pocket cut her paw on a search about 7 weeks ago, getting a nasty yeast infection which eventually healed. But with all the snow and ice this year, Pocket has kept re-injuring the paw. Amy, who owns Pocket's grandmother and is the incredibly knowledgeable owner of Leaps and Bones kindly shipped some Musher's Secret wax down south for the girls to try on their paws. It got here just in time for the last big snow. Snow balls clung to Remy, Scout and Pocket's legs and bellies, but no snow stuck in their paws. It works!
Since Pocket is young, I am also trying to get her to wear outdoor rugged boots from Ruffwear, Pocket's favorite name brand. Remy and Scout refused to wear shoes when I tried a few years ago. But Pocket is amenable to trying to make this shoe thing work. As we have gone out onto salted roads for test runs, I feel like I am walking a happy horse. Pocket loves horses, so maybe this will work . . . .
