Mar 13, 2009: Dog Boots

From November 1929, Modern Mechanix magazine, posted here.



I wonder, in 1929, what the chances of getting many rides were?
Less traffic but moving slower and friendlier.
No superhighway traffic whizzing by, but people not going as far.

A man from Philadelphia, heading to Califormia, with a poodle? Ghey.

I do like the dog's haircut though.

He looks right chipper in his boots, as if silenty saying, "Finally! Somebody gets me!"- a proud fellow, set apart from his own species by sheer force of will.

good for him!

Adds new meaning to giving your dog the boot.

November '29? That was never a pet. It was lunch on the hoof.

These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.

Are you ready boots? Start walkin'!

What ever will dogs do for boots now? The US has an alarming lack of cobblers!

Probably not a problem since Google has 2,090,000 hits for dog boots.
