We really shouldn’t have laughed as much or as hard as we did but seeing Chip navigate wearing his first set of boots was hilarious. As much because of the great Irish dancer butt-kick that he performed over and over and because of the look of confusion he had while also being a great sport about the whole thing.
By the next day he was still in the mode of “What? Why are you doing this to me” but by the next morning he actually lifted his front paw up when I asked if he wanted his boots.
It seems clear that while they’re weird, he prefers his boots when we’re walking on gravel and I suspect he liked them this morning when walking through frosty ground.
