Condoms for your dog

The tag word of 2011 seems to be "repurposing" - because "recycling" just ain't that hip anymore, people.  And the folks at Pawz have found a way to repurpose our childhood favorites, water balloons.

Louboutins for your pup
Yes, paw condoms.  From the Pawz website:

"Pawz is the world’s only disposable and reusable, waterproof dog boot. Made of natural rubber, Pawz are 100% biodegradable. Pawz are designed to go on easily and fit securely without zippers or straps. Fashionable yet durable, Pawz offers serious paw protection. Pawz is the most natural-feeling boot your dog can wear because without padding your dog feels the ground, providing a needed sense of security. Like a sock, Pawz moves with your dog, allowing full paw motion and maximum comfort. And imagine never losing another expensive dog boot again! Pawz come 12 in a package and each boot may be worn many times."

Now, I did not wake up one day and decide that my pooch needed prophylaxis for her paws (say that 10 times fast).  Rather, with freshly refinished hardwood floors, I needed a solution to keep them shiny while still allowing our doggie-daughter to roam around freely.  And that leads us to the discovery of Pawz at the local dog boutique.  Fortunately, Cleo is a mild-mannered pup and all-around Gumby-dog (moldable, like Gumby), and here are the hilarious results:

Condoms. To protect your wood. (ahem)
