A few days back, one of the bloggers I follow pointed out that Golden Retrievers...
...are the perfect dog to accompany you when you're wearing Uggs:

Totally makes sense! Both are comfy, toasty, cozy, kinda big, and a little doofy-looking.
That got me to thinking about other dog-and-shoe pairings. I realized that Doberman Pinschers...
...have always reminded me of scary, high-heeled black boots:
And that Pomeranians...

...are like those fluffy boudoir slippers, come to life:

With just a little reflection it was clear that black Labs...

...are black motorcycle boots:
But they're very friendly motorcycle boots. And Yorkies?
Mary Janes. But be careful: the dogs--and maybe these shoes--are little nippers!
Beagles and Boxers both...

...remind me of penny loafers. Classic, friendly, easy, all-American shoes. Uh, dogs. No, shoes.
I'm not certain about bulldogs. If they look more American...

...then they are totally men's workboots.
But if they look more British (don't ask me how they differ, they just do!), then they remind me of men's Oxfords:
While Italian Greyhounds...
...are pointe shoes.
Dainty, elegant, beautiful. So, what breed do you think ridiculously sexy colored high heels are?
Poodles, of course! The foo-foo, chi-chi type of poodle:

While your typical, average mutt....

...is the favorite, beat-up pair of sneaks you'll never part with:
...are one of those breeds of big, reliable mountain dogs, like Bernese and St. Bernard. Dependable, sturdy things you can count on in rough terrain. The kind that's got your back if you're lost on a mountainside.
And what, you might ask, do I think my silly, ridiculous, adorable pugs are?
Baby shoes! Two-tone baby saddle shoes, to be precise.
Thanks for asking.
