When I was growing up, I had a little labrador named Benny. He was the greatest lab on the face of the Earth.
My mother often thought it was hilarious to dress Benny up and put booties on him. Being the obedient dog that he was, he absolutely loved it!
He would always get so much attention.
When he was 5 years old, he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. We had to put him down.
I told the vet about the behavior of putting booties on him. The vet thought that is what probably caused all of the trouble.
I will never forgive my mother for what she did. I want to have concrete research done in order to prevent others from doing the same to their dogs.
