Your dog walks barefoot..do you?

If the sidewalk, road, asphalt, concrete, sand or dirt is too hot for you to walk barefoot...it is too hot for you dog to walk on...this pictures shows what can happen..This is a record setting hot summer...please rethink how you treat your pets!!!:brick

.Sidewalks, asphalt, sand, brick, gravel, it is all HOT. Take off your shoe and test..if you can't walk barefoot on it, neither should your dog!!!
THIS is why you do not walk your dogs on asphalt or concrete in the summer. If you see someone walking their dogs on asphalt or concrete, PLEASE educated them and get the pet to cooler ground. Do not just hit "like", SHARE this warning too. Borrowed from BARC Humane Society, Inc.

OMG, That looks absolutely painful. It has been SO hot here and many people are walking their dogs. My thought is that a day or two without a walk won't hurt.

We see our dogs lifting and shifting their paws on the dirt when we take them out potty. I can't imagine walking a dog on asphalt in the heat of the day in summer! That poor creature.
