rock salt

we had a little snow the other night, and the building manager put down alot of salt on the walkway and the steps. it seems that it gets caught in sophies feet and she limps untill i rub her feet and it falls out. it has gotten to the point where she waits for me and lets me do it without horsing around. for her, that in itself is unusual. do i need to buy her little boots? i have always thought that doggie clothes were the reasons they bite people. do any of you have this problem with the salt? solutions? anyone?

I tried cheap booties on Lucy and Flora for a couple years, but have given it up. They didn't like them, and they kept getting lost in deep snow.
Now, I just make sure that they walk through a bunch of clean snow to take off any salt they may have picked up. I also avoid sidewalks where a lot of rock salt (or other ice melting chemicals) are put down. Try some socks or cheap booties, since the salt is bothering Sophie. She'll let you know what she thinks.
