Bridoodle is at that extremely fun stage where she loves to remove her shoe. Not both shoes. Just the right shoe. She then proceeds to gallop around happily with a funny limp.
Her skills have improved over the last few months, and she can now remove her shoe in the time it takes for me to shut the door and get in the driver’s seat. It’s very annoying. When we get to our destination, I must locate the shoe (because she tosses it in the air and it can land ANYWHERE) and then I have to get it back on her squirming little foot while she protests.
Out of desperation the other day, I tried this little trick. I placed one of my own socks over her shoe. And it worked! She spent thirty minutes in the car struggling to get the sock off and when we arrived at our destination, both the shoe and the giant sock were still in place. Voila! This will be our new method for any event where we’re running late.
Which means, we’ll be using this trick EVERY day! For more WFMW posts visit We are THAT Family.
