"Snow Boots" and my 4th Birthday!

Check this craziness out my furiends. This is what arrived in a little pawcel at my place (after mum did her magic ordering of stuffs at the keyboard from the internuts).

Oh the deep embarrassment!! Why does this have to happen TO ME!!

What if I stand on three paws and just SHAKE EM OFF - hmmm - not working!!! I must have done something really wrong to get this sort of punishments!

So - the explanation you are all waiting for. Well - gather round. Our winter hollingday will be a doozy this year. Apparently we are going to drive and drive (for two long days) and end up in a chalet surrounded by SNOW!! Yes - my furiends - I know that some of you are Snow Professionals .... I have SEEN this .... but I however do not live close to any such white weather stuffs. That's why we have to drive a long way. 

Remember that Doggie Behaviourist we met on our summer hollingday???? Well she got talking with ma - and ma asked her if we need to put the mini schnauzer into shoes for the snow ... and the instructor said "Yes". She said that it would be wise because I have never had the snow experience and that my tootsies might go into shocks!!! So ma got onto ebay - and then these arrived.

Mum did not think I would like them - but right after I tried them on she was throwing Liver Treats all over the lounge to make me walk in them .... here is the video to prove it:

Right after she put them on me - there was a LOT of laughing - at me, not with me!! How rotten rude. However after a few minutes I was pretty good - like the video shows.

I still think this whole situation is ridiculous - can't I just look at the SNOW from the CAR or the CHALET windows???

Mum says "No".

All I can say is..... this hollingday better be good. Apparently I am staying at a hotel that lets us dawgs in the room, then we are in the doggie friendly chalet, and then we are staying in a holiday house which is doggie friendly too.

Oh - and mum says to tell you that I have a pink puffer jacket to go with my boots.      Great.


Guess who turned FOUR years old???? Yups - ME!! Allow me to POINT OUT that my Pawrents completely forgot my Birthday and remembered two days late!!! Lucky for me there was much REMORSE.... and there is only one way mum could make it up to me:


Mum made me (And Scarlet and Zoe) special Birthday hamburgers. Scarlet turned FIVE a week ago.

Here is Scarlet having a "pre" sniff. Zoe is looking on.

So as soon as Scarlet turned away - the Silver Rocket bounces in with a Swift LICK - no sniffs for me - I get down to business!!

We ENJOYED those Birthday Burgers - oh boy oh boy - they were lip smackin' good!!!!!!


  1. We LOVE snow. Snow cookies are awesome. We've been in snow since we were pups so our paws are kind of used to it. Mom is being good protecting your paws because you aren't used to to the cold.

  2. Rubie, I don't know much about snow but I do know about boots. They are terrierible but I guess we gotta wear them sometimes. I marched around at first too until I got used to mine. I LOVE that yours are pink! They look perfect against your silver furs. Happy belated Birthday. I cannot believe your mom forgot! WTD?
    *Cairn cuddles*

    You DID get a super REMORSEel of a burger out of the fact that SHE furgot your special day. THAT is grrrreat.
    OMD OMD RUBIE... say it isn't so... Please tell us that you are NOT going to be going where there is SNOW... on PURPOSE??? TRUST US... SNOW is NOT good... WE have had TONS of experience with it this past winter and WE KNOW All ABOUT snow. Your puffy coat and those super snow boots will not make it any easier or warmer or dryer.
    If your peeps want a Snow Experience... we could send them about 87 of Mom's SnowFreaks..(she would NEVER Miss them) and they can just pawtend that they are in snow country...
    OH RUBIE... we just HOPE that your boots have SUPER TRACTION... beclaws we can NOT tell you how many times we slipped and slid and FELL in the snow and ice this year.
    You surely do look CUTE though.

  4. Hope you had a wonderful birthday despite those snow boots
    Lily and Edward

  5. We too see you had a wonderful birthday with yummy foodables. Now we may not like booties but we think they might be a good idea Rubie as we don't want shocked paws. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Hey Rubie!
    Wow, a big ole HAPPY BARKDAY TO YOU my furiend! Well, I like how you started the video wagging, but I can see you're not thrilled with the footables. I must say they are adorable on with with the matching pink collar. It might be worth it to wear them if you get extra walks and snow zoomies. I can pawmise you that the fluffy white stuff is excellent for zoomies and pouncing.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm

  7. once you get use to boots the are pawsome - I wear mine all the time becuase of the arthritis in my feet. They are also great for walking in when the ground is really hot too. Tell you Mom to buy some odor eater soles and cut some the size of your boots - we doggies sweat through out feet so it helps to stop them getting smelly

  8. Oh Rubie, this is going to be so exciting for you, your first encounter with snow. Do make sure your Mom has her camera all fired up so she can take lots of pictures or, even better, a video! I, being a roughty toughty terrier, have no need of boots, but Gail is saying she wished she had made my predecessor Hamish wear them, as he often had sore paws, poor soul.
    Toodle pip!
    PS I thought I was the only dog in Blogville whose human never remembers birthdays…

  9. Birthday burgers....that's Novel, and it looks so good.

    Bummer about the boots BUT you get to see snow up close and personal. It came close to us last weekend, but we didn't go see it.

    We think you should have hobbled about more to get more liver treats....just and idea.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

    We like the way they are coordinated with your collar.

  10. Well, whats wrong with your peeps, how can they forget your birthdays. Happy Birthday Gals, looks like they TRIED to make up for the forgetfulness. Hope them booties work well, they seem to doing a good job on the treat business!

  11. Happy Belated birthdays to you both!! AAaarrroooooo! Dose burgers looks yummy! Whitley, my BFF, lived in Boston fur 3 years and she had to wear some pink boots in da snow-- at first she didn't like them, but she learned purdy quick dat they kept her feet from gettin' hurt by da ice and da chemicals people put on da sidewalks to melt da ice...

  12. Happy Birthday! We love the snow and don't think you should need the boots unless the temps are well below zero degrees.

  13. Hi Rubie
    Happy Birthday :) Those birthday burgers look fantastic we bet you enjoyed them :) We look forward to seeing you enjoying your doggie holiday in the snow. Milo & Jet

  14. OMD, that burger looks SO good! Om nom nom nom.

  15. Howdy Rubie. Happy Birthday sweetie pie. Wowza those burgers looks fangtastic. Glad you enjoyed them with your cousins. Your little boots looks soooo cute. We loved the video. Enjoy your holiday and don't forget to get mum to take heaps of photos. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Happy Happy Happy Birthday Rubie, your bloggy is STILL not coming up on my blogger dashboard, I don't know why, so I'm sorry for missing this, I must admit you look pretty in those wonderful winter booties of yours, Mum said that you inspired her to look for some for me (my pugness Rubie did you have to show them off to the world?) so now I might be getting some of my own, I'm excited to hear more about your snowy holiday, I really love the snow, as you know I have had many walks in the snow here, last year though we didn't have any snow so I'm jelly that you get to go frolicking in it!
