Leis drawer is filled with cool things, but when she puts on her socks, she quite literally turns into a superwoman.
Or say spider girl or, shall we say something pink or smiley…
In fact, everything about this precious 14-year-old pups demeanor changes when she puts on her socks. Her owner Niki Geroni-Lajoie, says that the socks are like a switch for Leia, because when she puts them on, her demeanor completely changes.
A switch that suddenly flicks on….
“She went from being fairly immobile and fearful to walk across the floor to trundling around with a lot of confidence just by putting on her socks. She helps put them on. She knows they help her.”
While the socks her improve her mood on tough days, they are practical in the sense that it helps the old senior pup get around on the wood floors of her house in Toronto, Canada. Geroni-Lajoie continues,
“Last fall we ripped out our carpets in our condo and installed the wood flooring and found that she was slipping and sliding and not getting the hang of the floors at all,” Geroni-Lajoie says. “I was worried she was going to sprain something, being so old and wobbly already. She will stand on the living room rug and bark for me or cry, trying to get around if the socks aren’t on. She runs around and you can tell she’s really happy and waggy.”
Two years ago, Leia quite literally needed real traction in her life. She was rescued by Geroni-Lajoie from a shelter via the Under My Wing Pug Rescue, along with her brother. Unfortunately, Leia’s brother has since died, however, she is comforted by two other rescue pups that live at home with her who help her get through the tough times.
“Leia is old so she sleeps a lot, but when she’s awake she’s very opinionated. She’s feisty and goofy and loves attention more than any other dog I’ve ever known. She’d give her kingdom for a head pat, that’s for sure.”
Nothing ever comes between precious Leia and her socks….
