Neat! TWO great videos of doggies using the Grips. Twice as nice!

It was really sweet seeing Mitchell walking around with them, thanks for sharing that sweet memory. He looked so confident on the floors. What a lucky pup to be able to improve his quality of life that way. 

And Nancy thanks for the video too! When we put them on Wyatt’s feet it looks nothing like that! Haha! Lots of kicking me in the face while Jim stuffs peanut butter in his mouth 😉 I also noticed how the vet put glue on after the grips slipped on. I think we’ll try that next time, since most of the glue seems to end up on my fingers when we apply the grips with glue already in them. Great tip!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Great video of Brownie  and the toe grip application.

Anyone have the dogs try and chew them off?  Or do the dogs completely  ignore them?

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

😂😂 about the fighting and glue.  I glued Mitchell’s on  after too….but… he was only good for about 8 toes. After that i had to call David in for help,  sweat,  and…um… maybe a little cussing on my part 😂😂

He hated his pedicures.  I could never have gone more than 4 weeks,  and that was pushing it because his nails grew so quickly. 

First time i have watched that video since he crossed over.  Was smiles through tears.

First time I have seen a video of Mitchell. He looks really sweet…

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Wyatt completely ignored them once they were on. That totally surprised us.

Brownie ignores his as well. I have tried socks and he kicks them off. So the grips are great.
