I am curious about why some dogs can walk over a salted driveway without seeming to notice, while other dogs are in obvious pain? My old lab would be able to walk over salted driveway's, walkways, porches, you name it. However, I quickly learned that when winter time rolls around I have to be very careful with my aussie mix, Graham. He is a brave dog normally but when his sweet little feet hit pavement that's been salted he cries loudly and holds his feet up, trying to lick off the "ouchie" stuff. I have to keep booties on him but he sure does not like them.
I was just curious. If anyone knows why this happens to some dogs and not other dogs it would be nice to hear from you.
