    Random sighting of a beautiful brindle Basenji in this week's Lucky grocery store circular!

  • Cute. But spraying cooking oil spray on them? The stuff is kinda stinky (we use the olive oil one). I wouldn't put that on Kipawa. Ick. Thinking about it is giving me the 'willies'.

    Heh yeah, I wasn't sure what to make of that advice either! And of course, this is coming from an ad that's trying to sell Purina Dog Chow and Alpo…

    Cold and icy sidewalks aren't something we really have to worry about here, thankfully.

  • Buddy would get freaked out thinking I was going to cook him for dinner.

  • I can't imagine circumstances under which I would spray my poor dogs with cooking oil - they'd immediately try to lick it off themselves and each other, plus roll all over all furniture and carpeting they could find to get rid of it! What an odd suggestion when there are so many light fleeces, sweaters, etc. to keep the babies warm. It is sometimes very hard to understand what people are thinking!

    I always tell Becca that she is a Turkey and someday we will have to roast her for Christmas or Easter once we fatten her up a bit. She would be all nervous too and be like 'OMG they weren't kidding!!!'

  • If anyone here on the forum lives near that store, perhaps they could contact/visit them and tell them they should place a 'correction notice' in the next flyer saying people shouldn't do this, and that they apologize for any misunderstandings?

  • mmmmm . . .
    curly tail soup.

    (that's what I threaten my kidz with. They all take it so seriously - NOT)

    Okay, upon further reading, I think that they are suggesting putting PAM on the dogs' paws before walking out in cold weather/salty sidewalks. I have heard this advice. Don't know if it works as when the weather is that bad, we're not out very long.

  • PAM on paws hey…..never heard of that before. But I imagine it would keep the snow from sticking!

    My dogs would want to lick it off immediately-especially the chowhounds! I would not want the leftover residue on the floors or rugs. I have never heard of spraying PAM on paws either. I used to use a product to use on paws/pads to moisturize them. My previous Fanconi affected girl used to have rough/dry pads and I think it was due to the heat on the concrete in Houston-she was originally from SD and lived in a crate. I used it on her and it worked well.

    In a (vain) attempt to keep the snow from balling up in his feet, we would put vaseline on the pads of our Australian Shepherd when he'd run on the sled team with the Sibes. Never thought of PAM.

    Oh, I just noticed that part of the advice window got cut off, which might be causing some misunderstanding… the advice was to spray the dog's sensitive paw pads with cooking oil, not the whole dog. Maybe that clarifies some things…? =)

    [Edit: Oh yeah! agile already put it together. I missed half the comments on the first page, woops!]

    Okay, I suppose that makes some sort of sense, but even down here in Florida, they sell booties for dogs - really cute ones actually, and some that are very light and disposable. I would imagine in cold weather areas they are even more readily available and would make more sense than pputting anything on their feet that could then get tracked into the house and all over the floor.
