Bow-Legged Hoppy Waddling Jump-Footed Gait

Dj hates cold weather. (This is apparently common among chihuahuas, who are bred for southern climes. Those ridiculous sweaters aren't just for show.) He even hates the feeling of cold on his paws, and when I take him for walks on chilly days, he does this weird prance where he essentially tries to keep his paws off the ground. Due to laws of physics, he fails, but the result — poor DJ — is rather humorous. His back paws do this bow-legged hoppy waddling jump-footed gait, where he almost really looks like he's going to succeed. Poor DJ.

    Get the poor thing some wings. Or a pogo stick. Or keep him inside. Or somethings. Boots?

    Sure enough, I looked them up. There are also boots for other sorts of dogs. And there are even disposable ones, and sox too. Maybe June could knit Dj some sox. That'll also give her a yarn to tell at school. (ouch)
