While I was walking with my family last Sunday afternoon I met this adorable three-year-old miniature poodle wearing a boot on one paw.

His owner told me that several toes on that paw are fused and the pads are malformed, so the boot protects the foot when he’s out for a walk. The fused toes resemble the Vulcan salute, hence the name Spock.

Live long and prosper, Spock!

Until next time,

Thanks, hornblower!

Along with being such a sweetie, Spock is also very calm and easy going. His owner obviously did a wonderful job of training him.


Isn't it amazing what people have invented? What a sweet dog.


These things always impress me, Gillian, and it's wonderful to see such compassion for our four-legged friends.
