What a pain it has been for the last 5 days! Letting the dogs out one at a time so there is no rough housing on the ice. They are getting antsy. The only treads I could find were for a size 11 boot, for my womens size 8 boots and one came off along the drive way camoflaged by the gravel. I took the other off, told Jack to go find it AND he did. So back in the house I took one dog at a time and had them find the mate to a glove or a sock, let two have a supervised wrestling match in the living room and they all went to sleep for a few hours.
