    Yes, I did share this information with Ruffwear. I got a call from one of their customer service people, and they told me the head of their company wanted to talk to me and would call later. Never happened. But, they are on notice about the problem.

    That's so scary! Happy she's better and home. Thanks for the info! I can't make up my mind if we should get Chubbs a jacket during this negative/single degree weather.

    Wow.. I missed this thread back in August but so glad to read everything turned out OK.

    Yesterday we had snow. Blue never had an issue walking in it, but Wellie's paws burned from the salt. I saw him walking funny and sit down each time we had to walk over it.

    So I ordered these Amazon.com: Pawz Green Water-Proof Dog Boot, X-Large , Up to 5-Inch: Pet Supplies last night for next day delivery. I have no choice, the salt is hurting him. Hoping
    it won't be an issue.

    Hi Ellie, I think it should be okay as Wellie will be wearing them outside so it will be cold, and I'm sure the walks will be short. I would think it would be safe for short walks and he's not wearing them inside. Just keep an eye on him while he's wearing the boots and see how he does.

    agree -- short time frame is probably fine -- leaving them on for extend period, I would think, is the issue

    Agreed Christine, but in Lilys case, she was in a fashion show inside a mall, so she would have over heated faster than if she was outside in the snow. I'm sure boots would be fine when worn outside and for periods of 20 or 30 mins. But with anything especially when it comes to our sensitive bullies, it's important to observe how they react and to always supervise them, that way you can act quickly like they did with Lily.

    Never heard or thought of this ever before. My Jackson, who is disabled, has been wearing rubber socks and custom shoes on his back feet (he drags them in his wheelchair at times) for years and I have never experienced any issues at all. The University of Wisconsin Vet school, who did all his surgery and rehab actually told me to get him socks/shoes. Guess that I have been lucky and will have to keep this in mind, although it may be somewhat associated to the weather in the region.

    I kissed a Bulldog and I loved it.....there is nothing better in this world than a Senior Bulldog.

    When I lived in Maine, Bulldozer had little booties he wore out in the snow. He hated them inside though and we never had an issue with over heating but that was winter in Maine.
    I live right outside Vegas now - very near the mall the OP mentioned. It's HOT here in Vegas in August. I'm sure the boots were cute and it just never dawned on him about overheating due to boots. I would never have though it either.
