Don't worry, I am not sending them to the rendering plant. They took a bath in the washing machine and are sitting in my car. Don't worry, I left the windows open.
But I got rid of them. Those cute guys were getting too much attention anyways. People were so crazy about those dogs that I would get stopped every where. People would take my picture and want to pet my crutches. To replace my sweet pups, I ordered some gel underarm crutch pads and gel hand pads.
Overall, I don't recommend the handle covers. Also, the weight of the underarm pads have made my arms sore. The underarm pads are comfortable but I wish I could test drive the wool crutch covers which would be lighter.
If you are going to be using crutches you do need some sort of pad, otherwise the skin on your ribs will be torn up. However, you can always duct tape kitchen towels around the underarms and save yourself some money.
