Electrocution Proof Booties For Dogs?

On the shelves at Trixie & Peanut, a boutique in Manhattan, are indulgences for dog owners concerned with image: pink-sequined tank tops, moss-green lizard-skin collars, rhinestone barrettes shaped like tiny bones. Then there are specialty products for a different kind of shopper: people who don't want their pet to be electrocuted.

For them, the shop's owner recommends $79 boots with thick rubber soles that might protect pets if they should walk over one of the city's unpredictable sites of "stray voltage."

What do you expect from a corrupt old city, where organized crime has such influence over the construction and trade unions? Taxes keep going up, and the city keeps running down, yet going on. Crazy.
