Hi, Ronnie! I feel that I can talk a little more now. It’s been almost two weeks since Ben was killed and I am still pretty raw but doing a little better. Regarding the winter shoes, I have attached the pictures I have of him from last Christmas. He didn’t have any problems with these and could do everything (chase squirrels, run in the snow, etc.) with these on. However, all in all, these are GREAT boots and NEVER EVER come off! Right now I am still mourning Ben very much. Whether I will get another dog and when is very much up in the air. Meanwhile, thank you so very much for all you did for Ben! Carrie Bauer Denver, CO
