The dog is the first domesticated animal and is symbolically associated with loyalty and vigilance, often acting as guardian and protector. Like shoes, boots offer a message about getting more grounded, natural, and earthy in the steps you are taking to actualize your aspirations. The boot can also be a symbol of becoming more motivated as in 'booting up' or starting something. Looking for boots can symbolize planning for a difficult transition. A combination of dog and boots will offer you a marvelous item.
