These Boots are Made for Walking...

I had a busy day, what with taking care of the tires, running to the bank, a quick stop at Best Buy and then an hour at the world's worst library. I was barely home when I heard a curious scratching at the door. When I opened it there stood my friends Amber and Jesse, who came bearing gifts. It had been a long time since I'd had a pop-in (The Breakers was a gated community) so I was a little unprepared and the apartment was a mess. Duncan did a quick run-through of all his tricks and seemed particularly fond of Amber (I don't think there are enough women in his life. I'll have to have them over for dinner!).

It seems that Amber had grown tired of hearing me complain about my lousy shoes and how my walks with Duncan keep my feet in a nearly perpetual state of cold and wet, so she and Jesse picked me up a pair a nice Champion snow boots for Christmas, perfect for galloping through the snow and ice. Duncan will appreciate them because he'll get to stay out longer and I'll be able to kick even more snow in his face. Between the boots and my Everest-proof coat, I think we're set for the season.

Thanks, guys! You made a boy and his dog very happy tonight.

Oh my goodness, I have almost the same boots from Columbia! I got them last winter when I was dog walking for a living. They totally keep your feet cozy and dry. You will love them!
