Diana Camacho decided to prepare for the inevitable cold blast in New York City, US, by introducing her dog Dusk to some doggie shoes.
The region famously suffers severe snowstorms and bitterly cold weather during the winter so the footwear helps protect dogs’ paws during walks.
But Dusk was clearly completely flummoxed by his new shoes.
Hilarious footage shared exclusively to Daily Star Online shows the golden retriever performing adorable hops to trot towards Diana.
The scenes make him look like Bambi on ice and it doesn’t get much better when he walks away from the camera.
Again, Dusk lifts his legs up as he tries to work out what the hell is going on.
Speaking exclusively to this site, the dog owner said that, while it has not yet snowed in New York, she is “getting Dusk used to the boots so he’s prepared”.
She added: “He has improved a little but he still does little hops every time he wears them.”
Speaking about the first few attempts at Dusk walking in the shoes, Diana said she “thought it was hilarious”.
“We are very excited for him to learn how to wear them,” she continued.
