    Smile clumsy paws

    Hello. I'm wondering what "clumsy paws" means?
    Does it mean "make trouble often with paws"?
    Thank you.

    --------------
    My dog was only a few months old, and still had her puppy-soft fur and clumsy paws.

    I am not a teacher

    I believe this means that the puppy still moves awkwardly,as he is young.

    Re: clumsy paws

    Puppies have quite large feet compared to their body size so when they are very young, sometimes they have trouble controlling those big paws. That makes them clumsy - they might trip over or knock things over.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
