This tip came from Steve Panza. Thanks, Steve!
A friend told me about this, and I don't know if you have mentioned this
or not. To keep my dogs' paws clean when they go outside when it rains (my
backyard gets pretty muddy), I use Glad Press 'n Seal to make dog booties
that will not stick to fur or pads. Once they come inside, I just take the
things off and toss. No more need to use a bunch of towels to wipe and
clean muddy paws.
