It snowed! I’m ready to go outside but apparently Mom and Dad think I’m a lot more dainty than I am. Don’t they know I’m meant to be a hardy working farm dog? Unfortunately right now my only charges are two rambunctious children and a lot of cute little bees but I’m hoping for some chickens or even goats and sheep soon. Anyway, they have me pegged as a delicate flower and bought me some paw wax to protect my feet when I go outside in the snow.
Here I am checking it out to make sure it smells okay with no harmful chemicals that could disrupt my endocrine system balance. Hmmm…..I smell beeswax…I recognize that a lot now from the hives outside. I don’t really know what Carnauba, and Candelilla Wax and White and Vegetable Oils with Vitamin E are but they smell okay. Wait- mom just let me know that Carnauba comes from palm leaves and Candelilla wax comes from a bush….I love marking bushes….especially mom’s azaleas. Alright mom, go ahead and put it on my paws- I’m ready to go play in the snow!
I’m ready to get waxed! Thankfully for me that means something different for puppies.
Wax on Mr. Miyagi! Protect these old paws. Mom you might want to put some on your dry mitts while you’re at it. As you can see, my tongue is out. I didn’t eat any of the wax but the manufacturers say that if your dog does it will just act as a laxative. Doesn’t sound like fun but better than the more harmful alternatives. I’m a pretty regular guy already so I’ll abstain from consuming it.
Zoomie zoom zoom! I’m out of the room! And into the snow…..whoo-eeeeee! Feeling like a spry 8 year old!
Checking things out on the hinterlands….paws still feeling good!
I do love the snow, don’t you?
Well I’m off to supervise some family fun in the snow. Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever used Musher’s and what your thoughts were, we’d love to get more puppy feedback. So far I’m either ambivalent or completely satisfied, mom and dad can’t tell which but it seems like this stuff works!
“Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow. ”
