Officer Hower put Jary’s booties on, and then the dog tried to stand up. The pup was immediately confused—he didn’t understand what was on his feet!
Jary tentatively started walking around, raising his legs high into the air.The officers couldn’t help but crack up when they saw Jary trying to walk in his booties.
