Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Posh pups in America have long had to endure people clothes. Now, some police pups in Germany are joining them. Police dogs in Dusseldorf are getting shoes to protect their paws while they're walking the beat. Seems that shards of glass that could hurt the dogs get stuck in the city's cobblestone streets. And the dogs are learning to walk in their little blue rubber shoes. Hopefully, just in time for a police fashion show next month.
